Movie Info

This spellbinding documentary examines the H.G. Wells novel The War of the Worlds and the worldwide phenomenon it created when it was first published. The doomsday tale of aliens overrunning Earth has served as inspiration for scores of other sci-fi stories, plus renditions including the legendary Orson Welles 1938 radio play and, most recently, Steven Spielberg's opus starring Tom Cruise, Tim Robbins and Dakota Fanning.
