    This is something that looks interesting!!!

    “Portals.”
    The film features segments directed by genre veterans Eduardo Sanchez (“The Blair Witch Project”), Gregg Hale (“V/H/S 2”), Timo Tjahjanto (“The Night Comes For Us”) and Liam O’Donnell (“Skyline”).

    Created by Chris White, the genre-bending story is set around a series of worldwide blackouts — after which millions of mysterious cosmic anomalies appear everywhere across the planet. While many flee from the sentient objects, some people are drawn toward — and into — them with horrifying consequences.

    Produced by Brad Miska and Chris White alongside BoulderLight Pictures’ J.D. Lifshitz and Raphael Margules, the distributor is planning a fall multi-platform release, and will be begin handling foreign sales at Cannes under its partnership with Film Mode Entertainment.

    I don't know... considering how much of a critical bomb Skyline was, I don't think it's a great idea to have one of it's directors on this project.

    Well with "Night Comes For Me" "V/H/S" and "Blair Witch Project" there is some promise. But I admit that when even Donald Faison doesn't mention "Skyline" while on "Robot Chicken", it is a bad omen....

    From the looks of things it will be ‘invasion of the 2001 Monoliths’ at least at the beginning. Hopefully the portals go somewhere interesting like some alternate versions of Earth.

    That is kind of the vibe I am getting from the trailers...

    Interesting. This has a very SCP Foundation/Creepypasta vibe to it.
