What happens when aliens (from space)  invade Los Angeles?  Battle: Los Angeles, that’s what…

Plot Summary: “Battle: Los Angeles” revolves around a Marine staff sergeant (Eckhart) and his new platoon’s battle against an alien invasion on the streets of Los Angeles. Rodriguez will play Crpl. Adriana Santos, a member of a radio battalion. Pena plays the father of a boy the Marines find along the way, and Moynahan plays a veterinarian.

While this movie takes place in the near future, there actually was a Battle of Los Angeles back in 1942, that the first movie poster references.

The Battle of Los Angeles, also known as ‘”The Great Los Angeles Air Raid”‘, is the name given by contemporary sources to the imaginary enemy attack and subsequent anti-aircraft artillery barrage which took place from late February 24 to early February 25, 1942 over Los Angeles, California. The incident occurred less than three months after America’s entry into World War II as a result of the Japanese Imperial Navy’s attack on Pearl Harbor.

Take the jump for all the posters that were on display at the San Diego Comic-Con.

  1. I like the older posters, but the new one irritates me. Not that it makes me mad or anything, but there’s something unsettling about her face being that close to the viewer, I feel the same way though during football on ESPN when all their sideline interviews zoom really close on the players face. I get what they’re going with here, I see the thing behind her shoulder, but it still just makes me not want to look at it. It also has a little Blair Witch/Independence Day/Predator vibe going with the layout and then the alien sillouette.
