Columbia Pictures has a date in mind as to when Aaron Eckhart will fight off an alien invasion in the streets of Los Angeles. The studio has set their sci-fi action piece, Battle: Los Angeles, to premiere in theaters on February 18, 2011. At the moment, that’s the only wide release set for that weekend but as time moves forward we’re sure some other studio will line up one of their releases for the dame date.
The film will star Aaron Eckhart, Michelle Rodriguez, Michael Pena and Bridget Moynahan. Jonathan Liebesman is directing from a screenplay by Chris Bertolini and Scott Silver.
Plot Concept: “Battle: Los Angeles” revolves around a Marine staff sergeant (Eckhart) and his new platoon’s battle against an alien invasion on the streets of Los Angeles. Rodriguez will play Crpl. Adriana Santos, a member of a radio battalion. Pena plays the father of a boy the Marines find along the way, and Moynahan plays a veterinarian.

“MACHETE” is the Robert Rodriguez-directed full-length feature film based on the “GRINDHOUSE” trailer that opened up that now legendary double feature from him and Quentin Tarantino.
Lindsay Lohan has officially announced via her Twitter page that she’s in it.
The film also stars Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, Jonah Hill, Robert De Niro and Steven Seagal.
The movie is being codirected by Ethan Maniquis.
The storyline: The highly skilled Federale Machete is hired by some unsavory types to assassinate a senator. But just as he’s about to take the shot, he notices someone aiming at him and realizes he’s been set up. He barely survives the sniper’s bullet, and is soon out for revenge on his former employers, with the reluctant assistance of his old friend Cheech Marin, who has become a priest and taken a vow of nonviolence. If you hire him to take out the bad guys, make sure the bad guys aren’t you!
ALSO.. GoreMaster Tom Savini is rumored to have a part in the film
