Dark Skies Trailer

For a moment, we were excited. A movie remake of brilliant, axed-too-soon, ’60s-set alien invasion TV show Dark Skies. But no. Sadly, it was not to be. This movie Dark Skies has nothing to do with the show.

From director Scott Stewart (Priest, Legion)  and Blumhouse Productions, the company behind Sinister and Paranormal Activity comes a film that looks exactly like it might come from the director of Priest and Legion and the production company behind Sinister and Paranormal Activity.

The film 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 is forced to take matters into their own hands to save their family.

Keri Russell and Josh Hamilton star and the film is due to be released on 22 February 2013.
