FrightFest’s virtual attendees are just days away from its closing premiere event for Liam O’Donnell’s new movie, Skylin3s. Third in line for a saga that’s made a resounding comeback from 2010 through 2017, Skylin3s bookends the current trilogy forthwith, starring Lindsey Morgan (Beyond Skyline, The 100) in what O’Donnell himself ascribes to as the first superhero movie of the franchise.
When a virus threatens to turn the now earth-dwelling friendly alien hybrids against humans, Captain Rose Corley must lead a team of elite mercenaries on a mission to the alien world in order to save what’s left of humanity.
Skylin3s is getting a select theatrical and on-demand release on December 18, 2020. In the meantime, you can also read more on the director’s thoughts by clicking here, and with any luck, I’ll be able to check in with more coverage on this film in the weeks and months ahead.
Also starring are Rhona Mitra (Underworld: Rise of the Lycans), James Cosmo (Game of Thrones, Wonder Woman), Daniel Bernhardt (The Matrix Reloaded, John Wick, Atomic Blonde), Jonathan Howard (World War Z), Cha-Lee Yoon (Skyfall, Plan B, XXX: The Return of Xander Cage) and the incomparable Yayan Ruhian (The Raid, The Raid 2, John Wick 3: Parabellum).
Check out the trailer above, which first premiered at io9 on Thursday.
