For the past several months, we’ve been shocked by how good the trailers for Beyond Skyline look. Give the incredibly lackluster film it’s a sequel to, it should by all means look—and be—terrible, and yet everything we’ve seen promises the contrary. Now, we’re genuinely excited to debut a new clip from the film in which star Frank Grillo... is, uh, carrying around a baby in an alien spaceship.
Check this out:
Directed by Liam O’Donnell, Beyond Skyline is the sequel to the 2010 film Skyline, which is about as bad as movies come. This movie, however, has a new cast (including badasses Grillo and Iko Uwais), a new setting, and a new story, which explains why some dude is carrying around a baby in an alien spaceship:
When the population of Los Angeles is vacuumed off the face of the earth, Detective Mark Corley storms his way onto an alien ship to rescue his estranged son. But after crashing the ship in Southeast Asia, he must forge an alliance with a band of survivors to discover the key to saving his son and taking back the planet once and for all.
We’ve also got the debut of the US theatrical one-sheet for the film, in which our heroes refuse to make eye contact with a giant extraterrestrial threat:
Beyond Skyline opens December 15. Check out the trailers below.
