Universal’s latest entry into the crowded Aliens Vs. Humans arena, Skyline, was delightfully teased with its first trailer, and they’ve made good on the promise shown with an outstanding second trailer courtesy of Apple which gives up a little more on the background to the invasion.

There are some amazing shots here and what seems to be a mixture of Independence Day, District 9 and Cloverfield, with a little bit of Poltergeist thrown in. We never said it was original, just that it looks pretty great.

It stars Donald Faison, Eric Balfour, David Zayas, Scottie Thompson, Brittany Daniel and is directed by Colin Strause and Greg Strause.

Synopsis: 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.
