The sci-fi thriller Skyline hits theaters tonight at midnightand hopefully will live up to all the great hype that’s been surrounding it. The film is directed and produced by the Brothers Strause (Alien vs. Predator: Requiem), whose company Hydraulx provided visual effects for Avatar, 300 and Iron Man 2. Needless to say the film has a very high bar set for it in terms of visual effects.

As a little added bonus to the film, a viral video for was just released on the web. Check it out below…

Though this is fun, I kind of wish it was a bit scarier. Maybe someone fighting to get away, being torn apart, or something else? It all seems a little too clean for a sci-fi movie where an entire population is being wiped out by aliens. Or at least something less predictable than what’s been alluded to already in the posters and trailers.

In case you haven’t heard about the movie, it’s about a bunch of strange lights that descend on the city of Los Angeles, “drawing people outside like moths to a flame where an extraterrestrial force threatens to swallow the entire human population off the face of the Earth.”

If you haven’t already, check out the teaser and theatrical trailers for the film, they’re really great.

Skyline hits theaters November 12th!
