A Sky Full of Space Donkeys

Beyond Skyline

Of course it makes sense to do a sequel to a craptacular sci-fi movie seven years after the fact. Why, if it weren’t for lousy decisions like this, we wouldn’t need non-alcoholic beer or politicians.

Skyline

The FAIL that was the alien invasion Skyline (2010) is getting a sequel no one asked for. Titled Beyond Skyline (ugh), which was first advertised as coming out in 2015, now has YET ANOTHER release date of 2017 or 2018, depending on whether they can find anyone stupid enough to finance it. But hey, who cares? Let’s get that ad art out there now lest anyone forget the first movie all those bad memories ago!

Skyline

In Skyline we saw extraterrestrials in city-sized UFOs (probably not referred to as UFOs by aliens, though) invade our airspace and suck up hundreds of thousands of taxpayers as if vacuuming a dirty rug. Though not quite made clear, it’s presumed the aliens intended to store us/you as future groceries, much in the way a squirrel stocks up on nuts, cigarettes and gum.

Beyond Skyline

So they’ll go to all the trouble of making concept art, but offering barely anything in the way of a plot. Here’s what I was able to glean/steal from the Internet: “A detective who embarks on a relentless pursuit to free his son from a nightmarish alien warship.”

Beyond Skyline

That’s it? Weak. I also found out Beyond Skyline takes place at the same time the first one did. Good idea; since the first one blew space donkeys, might as go for the whole barn yard.
