Skyline was kind of one of those awful alien invasion movies that we all have tried to forget. But that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t be excited for Liam O’Donnell‘s sequel, Beyond Skyline.
For starters, it stars Iko Uwais and Frank Grillo, which makes it immediately better than the first film, plus it’s earned an R-rating — that means good old-fashioned blood and gore to amp things up a little.
Beyond Skyline looks infinitely more interesting, plot-wise, than the original, plus the cast ensures us that it will be well-acted, at the very least.
I just hope the action and carnage lives up to the “hype”. I say that in a slightly joking tone, because I doubt many have been begging for a Skyline sequel, but I also say that with the fact that this movie has been “on-deck” for what seems like years.
I really hope it’s worth the wait.
Beyond Skyline hits limited theaters and VOD this December.
