The Tease Campaign for "Battle: Los Angeles"
The real, mysterious 1942 Battle of Los Angeles formed the inspiration for Sony's upcoming feature "Battle: Los Angeles."
I'm sure you all have heard about the "Battle of Los Angeles" -- when jittery personnel shot anti-aircraft guns in the nighttime L.A. sky on Feb. 24 and 25, 1942, assuming that Japanese planes had come to attack. Later, it was explained away as a weather balloon mistaken for something else; others, of course, have called it a UFO sighting.
"Battle: Los Angeles" centers on Marines battling aliens on the streets of Los Angeles. (Except the movie wasn't shot in Los Angeles. It was shot in Louisiana. Really. So it oughta be called "Battle: La.")
