Skyline 2010

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.

Largely flying under the radar until this year’s Comic-Con, Skyline tells a Cloverfield-meets-Independence Day-style story of what happens when nasty aliens arrive and start scooping up who swathes of people from the surface of the planet with giant, powerful beams of light from their ships.

After a late night party, a group of friends are awoken in the dead of the night by an eerie light beaming through the window. Like moths to a flame, the light source is drawing people outside before they suddenly vanish into the air. They soon discover an otherwordly force is swallowing the entire human population off the face of the earth. Now our band of survivors must fight for their lives as the world unravels around them.
