In case you haven’t heard of “Skyline”, it is a new alien invasion movie and is in theaters now. The film was completely financed by Colin and Greg Strause without the assistance of any major studio. The film has a budget around only $10 million dollars and was almost entirely filmed at co-director Greg Strause’s condo building in Marina Del Rey, CA. It looks like a $100+ million dollar movie, taking a page from films like “Cloverfield” and ” District 9″. The film started off as a test trailer which was shot Thanksgiving 2009, and it is already hitting the screen less than a year later. There is about 1,000 VFX shots in the film, which more than most big budget franchise tent poles.
Here is the premise for the film:
Strange lights descend on the city of Los Angeles, drawing people outside like moths to a flame where an extraterrestrial force threatens to swallow the entire human population off the face of the Earth.
