Los Angeles faces Armageddon when a sinister looking spaceship settles over the city and begins projecting blinding columns of light onto the ground. Mesmerised city folk find themselves whisked into the air and into the hovering hulk. A group of upwardly mobile professionals watch terrified through the blinds of their 20-storey luxury block. It's essentially a hi-tech collision between Cloverfield and War of the Worlds in special effects maestros the Strause Brothers' visually stunning sci-fi thriller. Monsters roam the city's boulevards and stealth bombers scream through the sky as the unwelcome visitors take the city by storm.
