I’ve always been fascinated by the story of the Battle of Los Angeles, a fatal 1942 encounter between U.S. military forces and … something. Something that wasn’t the earthbound Axis that had ravaged the American Pacific Fleet just three months earlier.
The new film Battle: Los Angeles is based on the World War II engagement, albeit loosely. Starring Aaron Eckhart, Michelle Rodriguez, Michael Pena, Ne-Yo and Bridget Moynahan, the sci-fi action film hits theaters March 11. Watch a trailer below, and check out the documentary reel above provided by Sony Pictures.
