We're long overdue a good disaster flick. We're beginning to crave the feeling of infinitesimal mortality that comes with watching an alien eat a token friend whose character has yet to be built, or that unequivocal feeling that comes with watching a meteorite slam into a (remarkably flimsy) city bridge.
Well, yearn no longer, as the first trailer for "Battle: Los Angeles" was unveiled this weekend. Ok, we've still got a few months to wait (the film doesn't go on UK release until March 2011) but given the combination of ruthless extra-terrestrials, copious explosions and ultimate grown-up tomboy Michelle Rodriguez, we've got high hopes for this one. If not human kind.
