Okay…I’m not going to say much, cause I don’t want to jinx it, but this new trailer for Dark Skies (not to be confused with the NBC series) starring Keri Russell (Felicity) ,Josh Hamilton (J.Edgar) and directed by Scott Charles Stewart (LEGION) “appears” to be a fresh take on the whole alien invasion genre.
Synopsis: “Dark Skies is a psychological thriller about a suburban couple whose lives become a nightmare when a terrifying alien presence enters their home each night to prey upon their children. Increasingly isolated from skeptical friends and neighbors, the couple are forced to take matters into their own hands to save their family.”
I get a sense, from the trailer, that the director wants to take take us on a psychological, science fiction horror, jaunt and here’s what I have to say about that. Good Luck! Trying to juggle three genre’s in one film is no easy task, but if done right he could be the most brilliant director of our time. I’m serious. Dark Skies hits theaters Feb 22, 2013.
