The first ever clip for Battle: Los Angeles shows us exactly how "gritty" this feature will get. The small snippet of character dialog feels supremely authentic (for an alien invasion flick) — but can your stomach withstand the shaky-cam?

These recently released Battle: LA clips really demonstrate how far director Jonathan Liebesman went to keep this film grounded in reality. The soldier lingo and firefight shots certainly seem to back up the claims that this movie is Black Hawk Down meets Independence Day.

Battle: Los Angeles will be released in theaters on March 11th.
