Alright, sh!t just got real people and if I was excited before for director Liam O’Donnell’s 3rd entry in the Skyline franchise, which is titled appropriately SKYLIN3S, then I’m even more excited now after the new image that was revealed from the movie today.
The latest installment in the man vs alien trilogy is going to start to make the festival rounds soon and now we have word that it will be part of the Trieste Science+Fiction Festival in Italy and the news came with our first look at Daniel Bernhardt who is all locked and loaded with one nasty looking alien next to him. Check out the pic below!
That’s one bad ass image and this film can’t get here soon enough.
SKYLIN3S by Liam O’Donnell (UK / Spain / Lithuania, 2020) – ITALIAN PREMIERE
Third chapter of the sci-fi saga which started with Skyline (2010) by the Strause brothers, followed by Beyond Skyline (2017), directed by Liam O’Donnell. The new episode will be screened in Italy for the first time in competition in collaboration with Blue Swan Entertainment and will once again see O’Donnell behind the camera. Captain Rose Corley (Lindsey Morgan), a human with extraterrestrial powers, is the only hope to fight alien invaders, but she needs repeated blood transfusions to stop her speedy ageing process. A long-time fighter against invaders, Rose is now on the run, but she will be tracked in her hiding location by the military and drafted again. Alien-hybrids – now the majority of the Earth population – are about to fall under alien domination. Rose, on an undercover mission on the alien mothership, only has 72 hours to save mankind.
The first film Skyline has become a cult classic with the second film, named Beyond Skyline, pulling an Aliens and blowing the first installment out of the water. I called the second movie “one of the best kick ass adrenaline rushes you’ll see all year” and I meant it then and I mean it now. You can check out my full review of the second pic here.
Morgan, who was featured at the end of the second film, headlines the new movie and she’s joined by Rhona Mitra, Jonathon Howard (Godzilla: King of Monsters), Alexander Siddig (Game of Thrones), Rhona Mitra (Underworld:Rise of the Lycans) James Cosmo (Chernobyl) and 90’s action Star Daniel Bernhardt who is looking as fierce as ever in the new image above.
It looks like Mr. O’Donnell was yelling the truth when he responded to my post on Twitter and said “you’ll definitely feel the Bernhardt.” Don’t believe me, well check out the tweet below!
Expect more news to come from SKYLIN3S in the near future and let’s hope a trailer drops soon to wet all of our collective appetites. The movie is also set to play at Arrow Frightfest in London as well so first wave reviews should be coming shortly.
Keep it locked and loaded right here for more to come as we are your destination for everything Action!
