The article on the Yahoo webpage states that the bidding for the rights to this video, as a potential future movie, went up to $30 million. I have a hard time believing the bidding would be this high.

Not to take anything away from the video— it is amazingly well done for such a low budget production. The special effects would be amazing at 10 times the stated cost, i.e. $3000.

However, the concept is not exactly new. Alien life forms/robots coming to earth and destroying a city has been done in “War of the Worlds,” “District 9,” “Cloverfield,” and “Transformers.” Why would someone bid so much for concept that has been done repeatedly?

Not much in SciFi is new.

Much of the 'new' stuff is remakes of older or reinterpretations of older.
