A direct sequel to 2010’s Skyline, Beyond Skyline expands upon the mythology of its low-budget predecessor by introducing new characters and staging the alien invasion on a global level. Opening concurrent to the events of Skyline, Beyond Skyline stars The Purge’s Frank Grillo as an L.A. police detective who attempts to rescue his son when he is abducted and held captive on a spacecraft during the early hours of the invasion. Transported to Indonesia, Grillo unites in battle with The Raid franchise stars Iko Uwais and Yayan Ruhian against the malevolent extraterrestrials. Beyond Skyline marks the directorial debut of Skyline co-screenwriter and producer Liam O’Donnell. Beyond Skyline will screen at 7 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Dec. 8 at the Flix Brewhouse in Round Rock during the Other Worlds Austin Sci-Fi Film Festival. Beyond Skyline will be available on VOD beginning Dec. 15.
