Once upon a time, Greg and Colin Strause directed SKYLINE, an alien invasion movie where the majority of the budget went to crafting the visual effects. Although the film received a thrashing from critics at the time, SKYLINE did become a box-office success, which as we know, means sequel. BEYOND SKYLINE arrived seven years later and was deemed a big improvement over the original, and with Frank Grillo and Iko Uwais among the cast, how could it not? Well, the SKYLINE franchise is set to conclude with a third and final film, which Vertical Entertainment has decided to bestow with the title SKYLIN3S. Oh boy. You can check out the trailer above!
Written and directed by Liam O’Donnell, SKYLIN3S stars Lindsey Morgan as super-powered human-alien hybrid Captain Rose Corley, who must lead a team of elite mercenaries on a mission to the alien world in order to save what’s left of humanity after a virus threatens to turn the now Earth-dwelling friendly alien hybrids against humans. There you have it. In addition to Lindsey Morgan, SKYLIN3S also stars Rhona Mitra, James Cosmo, Jonathan Howard, and Alexander Siddig. Hey, it’s Dr. Bashir!
The official synopsis for SKYLIN3S:
Several years have now passed since other-worldly blue lights first descended from the skies as the alien invasion of Earth began.The once-killer extraterrestrials known as ‘Pilots’ have had their biology altered so they can now peacefully coexist with humans on a ravaged future-Earth. When a lethal new alien virus emerges, military commander General Radford (Alexander Siddig) warns that without action the Pilots will revert to their unstoppable, human-hunting form. To save Earth, super-powered human-alien hybrid Captain Rose Corley (Lindsey Morgan) leads a team of elite soldiers on a deadly mission beyond the far reaches of space to the alien planet known as Cobalt 1. This time, to save our world, we must invade theirs.
SKYLIN3S will be released in select theaters and On Demand on December 18, 2020.
