'Skyline' trailer: Donald Faison and Eric Balfour are in this movie, really

Posted on

The teaser trailer for the sci-fi flick Skyline is an example of “be careful what you wish for.” Maybe we shouldn’t be hoping that there’s life on other planets because the aliens could come and suck us up like moths to a flame. Literally. See the picture.

What you don’t see a lot of in this trailer is stars Donald Faison and Eric Balfour. Establishing that the visual effects won’t stink is no doubt important for codirectors Colin and Greg Strause (Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem), who’ve made their name in that field. But the dialogue between the duo will also set the tone for the movie. I need to know what kind of cheese to expect: Velveeta, Kraft Singles, or, longshot, a triple-creme brie.
