    This was totally off my radar. Looks insanely cool.

    Seems a little like V meets Independence Day meets Cloverfield. What's not to like about that?

    I was excited after the first trailer, but this one makes it look like a straight to DVD flick with good CGI and a sh**ty cast.

    Seriously? It's a sci-fi disaster flick. You don't need Will Smith and Keanu Reeves eating up $$$. Just lay back and enjoy the ride.

    In that case, I prefer newcomers that can actually act. Not "that black guy from Scrubs" and that other guy from...well, whatever the hell he's been in.

    Disaster movies for the most part have A listers and are released during the summer, so this one might actually be good. :)

    They're a guilty pleasure of mine. I even liked the disaster movie that poked fun at disaster movies.

    I agree- I liked Cloverfield more than 2012. The meat of a disaster flick is the disasters/action.

    People poo-pooing a flick like this due to the actors is like people griping about the plot in The Expendables. :rolleyes:

    When the first trailer came on in the theaters, I dont know why, but it made me laugh really hard. At it, not with it.

    Second trailer looks a bit better but im not sold

    I like how the aliens are pretty unrelenting. It's a November release so it could be pretty decent. The lack of an A-list cast doesn't bother me a bit..see Sunshine, Serenity, District 9, Cloverfield.

    Seriously needs to be more sci-fi movies out there though.

    Damn, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't intrigued.

    Showed the trailers to my wife- she seems to be with the '2nd trailer is corny' crowd. I said 'I love the second trailer', and she punked me out, saying, 'yeah, you love corny'.

    I can't argue with that, I guess. :cool:

    That 2nd trailer was so cheesy it reminded me of that giant shark trailer with Debbie Gibson a while back. This movie is going to be horrid.

    Directed by the Straus brothers...

    On my interested but cautious list.
