Battle: Los Angeles gets a terrific trailer.

For what it's worth, this is the first film of 2011 that my wife truly wants to see. And frankly, I can't blame her. This looks like a terrifying and intense bit of science-fiction. Compare it to Independence Day if you must, but this is one of the rare Earth-set blockbusters that seems to have the sheer scale of that 1996 popcorn classic. And yes, I love any genre trailer that uses seemingly inappropriate music to increase the creepiness, as this trailer does at the very end. In this case, like the first teaser, the music choice is "Sun's Gone Dim and the Sky's Black" by Jóhann Jóhannsson. I've said this a million times, but the right song or music choice can turn a trailer into a piece of stand-alone art (see: Inception, Where the Wild Things Are, the True Grit teaser, and the second Star Trek trailer). Anyway, this one comes out March 11, 2011.

Avoid any sudden stops and starts as much as possible. This will result to skidding, sliding and jack knifing.
