Weird Music, Plenty Of Explosions In <i>Battle: Los Angeles</i> Teaser

Columbia Pictures has rolled out the first teaser trailer for Battle: Los Angeles, the science-fiction movie that director Jonathan Liebesman has described as "like Black Hawk Down with aliens."

Starring Aaron Eckhart, Michelle Rodriguez, Michael Pena and Bridget Moynahan, Battle: Los Angeles is an alien-invasion movie told from the perspective of the Marines called in to help survivors escape a devastated part of the city. Here's the official synopsis:

For years, there have been documented cases of UFO sightings around the world – Buenos Aires, Seoul, France, Germany, China. But in 2011, what were once just sightings will become a terrifying reality when Earth is attacked by unknown forces. As people everywhere watch the world’s great cities fall, Los Angeles becomes the last stand for mankind in a battle no one expected. It’s up to a Marine staff sergeant (Aaron Eckhart) and his new platoon to draw a line in the sand as they take on an enemy unlike any they’ve ever encountered before.

Battle: Los Angeles opens on March 11.
