War of the Worlds, scheduled for release in 2005 stars Tom Cruise, Tim Robbins, Miranda Otto, Dakota Fanning and Justin Chatwin.
In H.G. Well’s 1898 novel, ‘The War of the Worlds,’ he invented the myth of invasion from outer space. Martians land near London, conquering all before them, and ruin the metropolis; the fate of civilization and even of the human race remains in doubt until the very last. ‘The War of the Worlds’ is disturbingly realistic both because of its setting — Wells bicycled the route the Martians take on landing — and because of its characters: the superstitious curate, boastful artilleryman, and enterprising medical student are believable if not sympathetic figures, as well as signifying types of fin-de-siecle change and vision.
War of the Worlds hits theaters on June 29th, 2005.”
