Big Pictures to release `Skyline` with 650 prints in India
New Delhi: Putting an end to the wait connected to its release, Reliance Big Pictures Tuesday announced it will distribute the alien invasion sci-fi thriller "Skyline" in India simultaneously with its worldwide release.
Directed and produced by the Brothers Strause (Colin and Greg Strause), the movie will hit the Indian screens with around 650 prints in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu Friday.
"`Skyline` is an alien invasion action thriller with some heart pounding moments which will appeal to fans of high-octane action films. Taking this into account, the film has also been dubbed in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu to maximise its reach and all versions will have a day and date release with the US and UK," Sanjeev Lamba, chief executive officer, Reliance Big Pictures, said in a statement.
The film stars Eric Balfour, Scottie Thompson, Donald Faison, David Zayas and Brittany Daniel.
The movie revolves around a group of friends, who after a night of partying are distracted with beams of light that awaken everyone in Los Angeles and attract every person like a moth to a flame. As the night progresses, they soon discover that once exposed to the light, they vanish into thin air, caused by extraterrestrial forces that later threaten to swallow the entire human race.
"Skyline" has been written by first-time screenwriters Joshua Cordes and Liam O`Donnell and produced by Kristian James Andresen and Liam O`Donnell. The executive producers of the movie include the likes of Ryan Kavanaugh, Brett Ratner, Tucker Tooley, Brian Tyler and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones.
