Universal Pictures’ and Rogue’s Skyline takes the latest trend in movies choosing high concept plots and stunning visuals over big names and takes it to the next level. The most recognizable name in the credits for this alien invasion film is probably Donald Faison of Scrubs fame, but the impressive special effects shown in trailers have garnered the film a lot of attention. With a budget of only $10 million, the strategy just might work. Now the marketing gurus are taking the film’s buzz straight to YouTube.
YouTube star Philip Defranco has a Skyline playlist that consists of Skyline-related videos on four high profile accounts, two of which belong to him. The videos range from interviews (one of which includes how the low budget was achieved) to “How To Survive an ALIEN INVASION”. Check out all the videos below.
You can also watch a recent Skyline-sponsored Kassem G video here. Skyline is directed by brothers Greg and Colin Strause, and written by Joshua Cordes and Liam O’Donnell. It opens in theaters today nationwide (and in the UK).
