The scary Hawking logic runs deep through the movie: "History shows us the more advanced Civilization always wins .. remember what happened when Christopher columbus invaded america? .. it didn't to good for the native's didn't it? .. well thats what's going to happen to humans when (Et's) arrive.. were done for"
Here's The trailer :
We have to remember that this is all fiction - a quick reality check here is that Mr Hawking overlooked the simple fact that Ufos have been visiting us for hundreds of years so this means if they were hostile i can assure you that you wouldn't be reading this today!...
Skyline - Movie story..
After a late night party, a group of friends are awoken in the dead of the night by an eerie light beaming through the window. Like moths to a flame, the light source is drawing people outside before they suddenly vanish into the air. They soon discover an otherwordly force is swallowing the entire human population off the face of the earth. Now our band of survivors must fight for their lives as the world unravels around them.
Official synopsis: 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. Don't Look Up.
There is footage of the aliens launching their “human collecting pods” and it all seems quite grewsome. The shot of all of those people being sucked up into the alien machines screaming all the way is quite freaky. More of this trailer at the movie's official site here
The benefit from hollywood exploring the Ufo topic again does reflect the major change in public interest towards the subject and it does get people looking up the skies ... but does this fear based approach towards first contact outway all these benefits ? What do you think? - please make a reply to this post.
Also are these movies a sign? ..errie reminders from Dr Rosin's speech (video here)
Fairchild Industries Corporate Manager, Von Braun’s Spokesperson, Dr. Carol Rosin[In 1974, founder of modern rocket science Wernher] Von Braun told me that the reasons for space-based weaponry were all based on a lie. He said the strategy was to use scare tactics—that first the Russians, then terrorists are going to be considered the enemy. The next enemy was asteroids.( remember all those asteroid movies from the 90's?) and “The last card is the alien card. We are going to have to build space-based weapons against aliens, and all of it is a lie.”….I was at a meeting in Fairchild Industries in the War Room. The conversation [was] about how they were going to antagonize these enemies and at some point, there was going to be a Gulf War (&this was back in 1977)...
So Steven hawking, now these new movies... was Von Braun onto something ..?
