Battle: Los Angeles (also known as Battle: LA and internationally as World Invasion: Battle Los Angeles) is a 2011 American military science fiction war film directed by Jonathan Liebesman, and starring Aaron Eckhart, Michelle Rodriguez, Ramon Rodriguez, Bridget Moynahan, Ne-Yo, and Michael Pena. The film is set in modern day Los Angeles and follows a retiring Marine Staff Sergeant who must go back into the line of duty to lead a platoon of U.S. Marines, US Army troops and a US Air Force technician during a global alien invasion. In April 2011, large objects, thought to be meteorites, land in the oceans near several major coastal cities. The objects are discovered to be spacecraft containing hostile extraterrestrial life. Marines from Camp Pendleton arrive in Los Angeles, including SSgt. Michael Nantz (Aaron Eckhart), a 20-year veteran who had lost his squad during his tour in Iraq.
