Comic-Con Exclusive: Your first look at Universal's SF 'Skyline'
Plus some hints about what you'll see at Friday's Hall H panel
On Friday, I'll be moderating a panel for a Universal SF film that was, until last week, completely off my radar, and I'm willing to bet off your radar as well.
The Brothers Strause have made one film before, and when I walked into the room with them last week to see some of what we'll all be checking out for the first time on Friday, I was curious to see who they really are as filmmakers. I've been through the process at 20th Century Fox, so I have a hard time holding a film like "Alien Vs Predators: Requiem" against anyone in particular.
With "Skyline," we're going to see who they are, and so far, it looks like they are geeks unleashed, guys who own their own cameras and their own FX house and their own equipment for post, and they finally realized, "Why aren't we making the films we want to see right now?"
Here's what I'm allowed to tell you so far:
In the sci-fi thriller Skyline, 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.
