UPDATE: (8/15/11 10:45 AM) We have been provided with the teaser poster and official synopsis for UFO, which you can take a look at below.
"Five friends wake on a seemingly normal morning to find the power's out, there's no mobile phone reception and the radio can tune nothing but static... None of the neighbours know anything about what could have caused these occurrences and news soon arrives that it may in fact spread across half of the UK, maybe further. But with no way of discovering any information and no advice on what to do, the atmosphere quickly turns edgy.
Two nights later they are awoken in the dead of night by what seems like a violent earthquake, strange lights are spotted shining down from high above outside, something is flying over the house, not just the house, the entire neighbourhood, something huge. A city size UFO, finally settles, hovering in the distance above the nearest city.
What now? Are they going to attack? Have they already attacked? Are the power cuts an accidental side effect the UFO isn't aware of? How quickly will society deteriorate and turn into survival of the fittest? What would you do to survive, to ensure the survival of those you love?
Whatever happens... Try to remain calm."
