First, there’s a movie coming out which looks like War of the Worlds, Independence Day, and Cloverfield all rolled up into one. It’s called Skyline. The problem is that Sony will have a similarly plotted movie coming out also. Ok, this has happened before, Armageddon vs. Deep Impact, Independence Day versus Mars Attacks. However, The Brothers Strausse, who are releasing this movie, also worked on the other movie, Battle: Los Angeles. Not cool. Here is the trailer for Skyline.
Secondly, and sadly, George Lucas is rereleasing his space epic Star Wars in 3D. All six episodes, starting in 2011. IMHO, this is just beating a dead horse, trying to squeeze every last possible dime out of his original work. But, then again, this is Hollywood, and they have become known for having a vast lack of imagination.
