Battle: Los Angeles topped the weekend box office, bringing in an estimated $36 million. But will it also improve Jeff Peckman's chances of becoming Denver's mayor? He hopes so. Peckman appears in numerous spots hyping the alien-invasion flick, including a featurette with assorted experts talking about extraterrestrial life of the sort envisioned by his Initiative 300 proposal, which fell short at the ballot box last November.

Click below to watch the trailer, in which Peckman is identified as a "politician," followed by his press release about his appearance.

Denver mayoral candidate Peckman in "Battle: Los Angeles" movie trailer

Jeff Peckman, one of ten Denver mayoral candidates, is in a movie trailer for Battle: Los Angeles which opens today in theaters throughout the U.S.

The early free publicity can only help Peckman, who is running a low budget campaign against well-financed career politicians.

A number of TV ads and a "featurette" include different appearances by Peckman who intends to avoid viewing them until after seeing the movie.

The interview from which the segments of Peckman were taken, was done in December 2010 before he had any thoughts of entering the race for mayor of Denver.

Thanks for the good news, Michael. I mistakenly posted an outdated link to the link to the documentary by Jose Escamilla for The Battle of Los Angeles. Here's the current one and the 3 short trailers are really enticing.


Thanks for your clarification Jeff. The previews had already convinced me not to see this movie.

After seeing Battle: Los Angeles, my recommendation to everyone is to save their money for seeing Jose Escamilla’s new documentary "The Battle of Los Angeles".

The current Battle: Los Angeles movie was more than disappointing. It had nothing at all to do with the original true story in 1942 about the UFO over L.A. The featurette is misleading in that sense. I was lead to believe there was some connection. So I agreed to be interviewed and made every effort to counter the fear-based "alien invasion" theme that Hollywood seems so obsessed with. There has been no evidence of extraterrestrial visitors having hostile intentions towards humanity – quite the opposite. Our galactic friends are here to support humanity. They literally have kept us from destroying ourselves by helping us behind the scenes.Battle: Los Angeles was just not very interesting. You could replace the 'aliens' with WWII Germans or Japanese, Viet Cong from the Vietnam War, terrorists, or out-of-control guests on the Jerry Springer Show and it would make little difference. Hollywood keeps missing the most fascinating aspects of extraterrestrial cultures. This absurd alien invasion industry needs a total makeover. Maybe Denver film-makers can take that on.It was obvious when I was being baited by questions designed to elicit responses that could be used to support the alien invasion theme. But "that's show-biz".
