LATEST TRAILERS: ‘WAR OF THE WORLDS’ [YES ANOTHER VERSION!]





We haven’t long suffered the BBC’s version, yet here comes another adaptation of War Of The Worlds. To be fair though, this new one looks like it’s going to be rather better [it couldn’t be much worse]. The eight-part mini-series is set in the present day and begins when:

Astronomers detect a transmission from another galaxy, definitive proof of intelligent extra-terrestrial life. Earth’s population waits for further contact with baited breath, but does not have to wait long. Within days, mankind is all but wiped out, with just pockets of humanity are left in an eerily deserted world. As alien ships appear in the sky, the survivors ask a burning question — who are these attackers and why are they hell-bent on our destruction?

 

The series is directed by Gilles Coulier and Richard Clark, and stars Gabriel Byrne, Elizabeth McGovern, Léa Drucker, Natasha Little, Daisy Edgar Jones, Stéphane Caillard, Adel Bencherif, and Guillaume Gouix. It’s already been shown in France, and will show in the US on Epix starting February the 16th. No news of a UK airing yet.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
