The name needs some work, sound to much like a B movie or even worst a SYFY produce movie.

aliens and humans teaming up to save the planet is not exactly unusual but I have never seen it done on a big scale or in a action pack movie before.

I am surprise anyone is hiring James Cameron until after they see how Avatar does, considering the amount of money sunk in to that project an the amount of negative press it retrieve over the trailer it could be the flop of the year.
