Consider this a humble reminder that tickets are currently on sale to screen the world premiere of Liam O’Donnell’s latest, Skylin3s, on October 25, the closing date for the FrightFest Halloween Digital Edition.
Culminating the trilogy that began with Skyline (2010), the new film continues the alien invasion saga following the parallel travails of newly-introduced heroes who fought back in O’Donnell’s follow-up, Beyond Skyline (2017). The official notes on the upcoming threequel read as follows:
Several years have now passed since other-worldly blue lights first descended from the skies as the alien invasion of Earth began.The once-killer extraterrestrials known as ‘Pilots’ have had their biology altered so they can now peacefully coexist with humans on a ravaged future-Earth.
When a lethal new alien virus emerges, military commander General Radford (Alexander Siddig) warns that without action the Pilots will revert to their unstoppable, human-hunting form. To save the Earth, super-powered human-alien hybrid Captain Rose Corley (Lindsey Morgan) must lead a team of elite soldiers on a deadly mission beyond the far reaches of space to the alien planet known as Cobalt 1. This time, to save our world, we must invade theirs.
With writer and director Liam O’Donnell once again at the helm of this thrilling sequel, expect explosive action, mind-bending special effects and a continuation of the galactic world-building that fans have come to know and love from the sci-fi action series.
The film returns Lindsey Morgan (Beyond Skyline) back in frame for the final chapter, and also stars Rhona Mitra (Doomsday, Underworld: Rise of the Lycans), James Cosmo (Game of Thrones, Wonder Woman), Alexander Siddig, Daniel Bernhardt (The Matrix Reloaded, John Wick, Atomic Blonde), Jonathan Howard (World War Z) and Cha-Lee Yoon (Skyfall, Plan B, XXX: The Return of Xander Cage).
