Skyline will finally hit our screens in a couple of short weeks and despite near-saturation advertising across billboard adverts, trailers, clips and posters, it still looks mightily impressive. Whether the final product can match up, we will soon know.

For now, we have a new clip showing the before and after of a moment from the trailer, where a helicopter coming to rescue two of our heroes gets grabbed by weird alien tentacle things. For what is reported to be a relatively low-budget film, the directors certainly seem to have committed to getting it all up on the screen and in the brief, minute-long clip embedded below we have some pretty thrilling moments.

Thanks to Yahoo Movies for the clip. For all our other Skyline coverage click here.

Dave has been writing for HeyUGuys since mid-2010 and has found them to be the most intelligent, friendly, erudite and insightful bunch of film fans you could hope to work with. He's gone from ham-fisted attempts at writing the news to interviewing Lawrence Bender, Renny Harlin and Julian Glover, to writing articles about things he loves that people have actually read. He has fairly broad tastes as far as films are concerned, though given the choice he's likely to go for Con Air over Battleship Potemkin most days. He's pretty sure that 2001: A Space Odyssey is the most overrated mess in cinematic history.
