Skyline Is Definitely Getting A Sequel, Here's Who Is Starring

21 October 2014 8:40 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

How do you make a sequel to Skyline? Apparently by starting from scratch with a whole new cast. Latino Review reports that Skyline's sequel Beyond Skyline will be fronted by none other than Frank Grillo, a character actor who gained some major notice last summer with a scene-stealing turn in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the gritty vigilante lead in The Purge: Anarchy. His portrayal in the latter had many comparing Grillo to Charles Bronson in Death Wish, and crying out for more Grillo. Thankfully, it seems both the filmmakers behind The Purge 3 and Beyond Skyline are happy to oblige. Now you might be wondering who Frank Grillo is set to play. After all, he wasn't in the first Skyline alongside Eric Balfour and Donald Faison, who played vfx artists trapped in Los Angeles when aliens invade. Well, if you recall most of the crew of the first »

Exclusive: Frank Grillo Circling The Lead In 'Skyline' Sequel

20 October 2014 1:35 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

During this year's Cannes Film Festival it was annoucned that there will be a sequel to 2010's low-budget sci-fi alien invasion tale "Skyline," which is called "Beyond Skyline".  Liam O'Donnell, the writer and producer of the first film is set to direct the sequel.

In the sci-fi thriller "Skyline," strange lights 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.

Over the weekend my source told me that Frank Grillio (Captain America: The Winter SoldierThe Purge: Anarchy) is the lead in the "Skyline" sequel, and that it would be some sort of reboot, supposedly the sequel's storyline takes place at the same time the first one did. The first Skyline had something of a twist ending that suggested where a sequel might go with those characters, »

Roar: Tigers Of The Sundarbans created by world class VFX technicians and cinematographers

17 October 2014 10:10 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

The Sundarbans region of West Bengal is one of the most deadly albeit breathtakingly gorgeous places in the world. Because of the unstable terrain and dangers in the form of lethal reptiles and of course, the majestic Bengal tigers, this area remains secluded in mystery and very few people get to experience the visual splendor that this place has to offer. When film-makers Abis Rizvi and Kamal Sadanah embarked on the journey to make Roar: Tigers Of The Sundarbans, their objective was to give the audience a taste of action, drama and thrill of the amazing Sundarbans and the majestic tigers in the best possible way.

For this, they roped in Anibrain, one of Asia’s leading VFX agencies, famous for their work in Hollywood films like The Amazing Spiderman, Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, Ghost Rider and Resident Evil among others.

The journey has been long and arduous. »

Beyond Skyline Moves Forward With New Title, Director And Sales Poster

23 May 2014 7:57 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I was not a fan of Skyline, a 2010 alien invasion flick from The Brothers Strause (Alien vs. Predator: Requiem) which failed to add much of anything to its genre. Though trailers, which showed people getting sucked up by eery blue beams of light, were moderately intriguing, the final product was lazy and awfully written (audiences agreed, giving it a D- CinemaScore rating). Regardless, the flick grossed $70 million worldwide against a budget of $10 million, more than enough to justify a sequel. And now, with the announcement of the newly-named Beyond Skyline, we’ll be getting one.

An official Facebook page launched on May 19th served as our first notice that a sequel was actively in the works. According to that page, Liam O’Donnell, who both wrote and produced the first film, will be directing and penning the script for Beyond Skyline. The film will serve as O’Donnell’s directorial »

A 'Skyline' Sequel Is On The Way

22 May 2014 2:36 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Remember Skyline, that 2010 sci-fi movie? Yeah, me neither. When I got the assignment to cover this story, I had no idea what film it was until I did a cursory search. Then I remembered...slightly. It was a film that opened a few months before Battle: Los Angeles, which had a similar premise on the surface. Many folks felt like the two films were set to cannibalize each other. Similar to what would later happen with Olympus Has Fallen and White House DownSkyline ended up being a critical failure- both with fans and professional critics- yet it managed to to turn a $10 million budget into a $66 million return.

Which brings us to today's news...

Skyline is getting a sequel. It'll be called Beyond Skyline, and the fellow that produced and wrote the first film, Liam O'Donnell, will this time serve as director. The sequel was officially announced at Cannes, »

Get Ready to Beat Off More Aliens in Beyond Skyline

22 May 2014 1:10 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Even though the movie itself was kind of mediocre, we were happy to see that the Brothers Strause (Avp: Requiem) at the very least found their lighting rig for their alien invasion flick Skyline. That being said... Who's ready for more?

News has come out of Cannes that Beyond Skyline is very much a reality and we have the sales art to prove it! The film's original writer and producer Liam O’Donnell will direct the sequel, taking over from the Brothers Strause.

As of press time no plot details have been uncovered and it's also unclear if Eric Balfour, who played main human Jarrod, will return or not. If you remember, the movie ended in a really open-ended way and Jarrod's fate was... well... unnatural to say the least.

More on this one as we get it!

Skyline Sequel Moving Ahead, But Without The Brothers Strause

22 May 2014 9:38 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The Cannes Film Festival is best known for debuting daring new cinema, like Ryan Gosling's directorial debut Lost River or the Nicole Kidman vehicle Grace of Monaco. Meanwhile, the Cannes Film Market is a hotbed of distribution deals both foreign and domestic. There, amid titles like Kidnap and Skiptrace, the rumored Skyline sequel is gaining momentum. Dark Horizons has learned that a sequel to the 2010 low-budget sci-fi thriller Skyline is being sold overseas. Called Beyond Skyline, this film will presumably continue the alien invasion premise of the first film, but this time without The Brothers Strause at the helm. Instead, Skyline producer and co-writer Liam O'Donnell has been brought on board, marking his directorial debut. No details on the plot have yet been released. But the above sales poster has been shared on Facebook. Greg and Colin Strause are special effects artists who crafted a career in visual effects »

Alien Invasion Flick Skyline Might Get a Sequel After All

22 May 2014 8:49 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

If you saw brothers/co-directors Greg and Colin Strause’s 2010 alien invasion movie “Skyline,” then you know that the ending of the film sets up a sequel. Not a terrible surprise, I know. These days, every genre film is almost expected to launch a franchise or, as is the fashion, a trilogy. “Skyline” was no different. Unfortunately a sequel never happened, even though the film did earn $66 million worldwide from a relatively cheap $10 million budget. While that may sound like a lot, the movie was heavily promoted beyond its budget, so $66 really wasn’t that much. And so, we never really found out what happened to the two main characters played by Eric Balfour and Scottie Thompson. But maybe we’ll finally find out when director Liam O’Donnell directs the sequel, “Beyond Skyline,” which is currently being sold to potential buyers (and financiers) over at Cannes. To help with the sale, »

Liam O'Donnell To Direct "Skyline" Sequel

22 May 2014 7:56 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Liam O'Donnell, the writer and producer of 2010's low-budget sci-fi alien invasion tale "Skyline," is set to direct the upcoming sequel "Beyond Skyline".

The new film's title and helmer were just revealed at the Cannes Film Festival and posted on the film's official Facebook account. No release date, cast or plot details have yet been announced.

The original film, directed by the Brothers Strause, grossed $78.6 million worldwide from a $10-20 million budget. At the time it was also in an intense rivalry with the similar but much more costly "Battle: Los Angeles" which made $211 million worldwide off a $70 million budget. Both films scored negative reviews.

A sales poster for "Beyond Skyline" is also out which you can see below.

‘Skyline’ Sequel ‘Beyond Skyline’ Surfaces With Poster

22 May 2014 6:47 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Relatively small movie Skyline is to get a sequel, Beyond Skyline. The news broke earlier this week during Cannes with a Facebook page promoting the new endeavor going live shortly after. Skyline was released at around the same time as Aaron Eckhart’s soldiers versus alien’s pic Battle: Los Angeles, which given the higher profile leading man stole most of the publicity away from Skyline. Neither film made a great deal of money but Skyline gained a cult audience and that audience has allowed the green light on a sequel.

The original writer and producer Liam O’Donnell will go one role further this time and direct the sequel, taking over from the Brothers Strause. Skyline wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea and had a rather strange and twisted ending which was also handily rather open-ended. Apparently it was always hoped that the film would branch out and »

Skyline 2 coming, Liam O'Donnell to direct

22 May 2014 12:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A sequel to Skyline, by the name of Beyond Skyline, is in the works...

News

Remember that face off between Battle: Los Angeles and Skyline a few years ago? Well, appreciating its problems, we'd go for Skyline every time. An audit of sorts as to what $20m worth of special effects looks like on the big screen, the movie was no classic, but at least it was never dull, and it had an ending that, well, it was a bit different.

Heck, we'll admit it. We quite liked Skyline. Yep, the ending as well.

And now there's a sequel coming. The news broke at the Cannes Film Festival, and it's going by the name of Beyond Skyline. A sales poster for the movie has also been released, which you can see below.

This time, the film is going to be directed by Liam O'Donnell, who wrote and produced the first film, »

Liam O'Donnell Goes Beyond Skyline

21 May 2014 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Remember Skyline? The loony sci-fi FX showcase arrived in 2010 courtesey of tech-heads The Brothers Strauss (AvP: Requiem), and enjoyed a spirited rivalry with the similarly themed Battle: Los Angeles, released at almost exactly the same time. Neither was critically adored, but both did reasonably well at the box office. And while we might have predicted that, of the two, Battle: La would be the one to get a follow-up, it's actually Skyline that turns out to be heading for a sequel. As just revealed at Cannes, Liam O'Donnell, the original's writer and producer, will be the director of Beyond Skyline. There's a poster too.Skyline was an alien invasion affair, in which the human race came off really rather badly. Eric Balfour (from Marcus Nispel's Texas Chainsaw remake) starred as our nominal hero Jarrod, with support from Scottie Thompson, David Zayas and Donald Faison. The Strause Brothers always intended a franchise, »
