We’re about due for a good alien invasion movie. Turns out there are two alien-invasion-themed releases headed our way…

First is Gareth Edwards’ new film Monsters, which is due in theaters on October 29. Here’s the synopsis:

Six years ago, a NASA probe returning to earth with samples of an alien life form, crashed over Central America. Soon after, new life forms began to appear, and half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain “the creatures”… The story begins when a US journalist agrees to escort a shaken American tourist through the infected zone in Mexico to the safety of the US border.

And here’s the trailer…

And then there’s Skyline, opening in the U.S. November 12, 2010:

In the sci-fi thriller Skyline, strange lights descend on the city of Los Angeles, drawing people outside like moths to a flame where an extraterrestrial force threatens to swallow the entire human population off the face of the Earth.

And here’s that teaser trailer:

So the question to you is: Which one do you most want to see?
