Get ready for stunning visual effect in the sci-fi action-thriller 
World Invasion: Battle Los Angeles.

Visual Effects supervisor Everett Burrell and Director Jonathan Leibesman put together best efforts to destroy the City of Angels and create destroyers for the film. CGI helped the team achieve stunning visual effects and bringing to life what they envision it would be.

Aaron Eckhart leads the cast  as Staff Sergeant Nantz, a career Marine who is “pretty burnt out,” the actor says. On the brink of retirement, he is pressed back into service. Eckhart thrived in his first sci-fi action movie. He took to the training immediately and worked his body into the best shape of his life. He became well versed in firearms, thanks to the coaching he received from the military technical advisors. He even developed what he calls a “love/hate” relationship with his helmet, and by the end of filming, began to refer to his protective military gloves as “his best friends.” To help them prepare for their roles as Marines, the filmmakers dropped the cast members into an intensive, three-week boot camp with active and retired Marines. They would have no mobile phones, no television, no internet and no contact with the outside world. 

Fresh from her mission in the moon Pandora in James Cameron's “Avatar,” Michelle Rodriguez now plays Air Force Tech Sergeant Elena Santos, who becomes a key ally for Staff Sargeant Nantz (Aaron Eckhart) and his platoon. Being Air Force, Rodriguez’s character takes some ribbing from her Marine counterparts. When it came to real life, the shoe was on the other foot, as Rodriguez took naturally to the military training, according to the film’s senior military technical advisor, Jim Dever. Rodriguez is a versatile actress known for the ability to combine her “tough girl” physicality with a natural beauty and unforced sex appeal. Rodriguez was last seen in Robert Rodriguez’s “Machete” opposite Danny Trejo and Jessica Alba and James Cameron’s $200 million science fiction epic, “Avatar.”

Still playing soon across the Philippines, “World Invasion: Battle Los Angeles” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.
