    About BATTLE: LOS ANGELES
    For years, there have been documented cases of UFO sightings around the world -- Buenos Aires, Seoul, France, Germany, and China.

As people everywhere watch the world's great cities fall, Los Angeles becomes the last stand for mankind in a battle no one expected. It's up to a Marine staff sergeant (Eckhart) and his new platoon to draw a line in the sand as they take on an enemy unlike any they've ever encountered before. BATTLE: LOS ANGELES was written by Chris Bertolini (The General's Daughter) and produced by Neal H. Moritz and Ori Marmur (The Green Hornet, The Bounty Hunter). Executive producers are Jeffrey Chernov (upcoming Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Star Trek) and David Greenblatt. It was distributed by Columbia Pictures and has a run time of approximately 116 mins. It has been rated12.

    About Resistance 3:
    August, 1957. America is lost. Four years after the end of the critically-acclaimed Resistance® 2, dishonorably discharged Sentinel Joseph Capelli has given up fighting the Chimeran menace. Now he's in hiding with other survivors, including his wife and young son. But when Dr. Fyodor Malikov arrives with the opportunity to deliver a blow to the occupying Chimeran force, Capelli must leave his family and journey the harrowing road from Oklahoma to New York City. Along the way, he'll encounter the remnants of humanity left in the aftermath of the brutal Chimeran invasion. Powered by Insomniac Games' fifth-generation PS3 technology, Resistance 3 portrays Capelli's heroic survival inside the brutal Resistance world. Featuring new upgradeable weapons, the return of the weapon wheel, two-player online or split-screen campaign co-op and a progression-based multiplayer experience, Resistance 3 delivers a heroic-yet savage first-person shooter experience for the PS3 system.
