They will have a hard time making a screenplay that works though.

For example, aliens are attacking us.  Why?  

Who or how will they communicate with us?  

Take for example, The Day After Tommorrow.  Where the lead characters easily know EXACTLY what's going on and their the only one's in the loop.  What a coincidence!  I wanted to leave watching that crappy movie.  The premise and special effects were cool.

You can't let the gigantic scope of the story overshadow the back story of it.  It's hard to do especially when dealing with such an imense issue like an alien invasion.

The way i figure it, any movie like this is the story of the people who do know what's going on, so I don't really worry about the fact that they may be the only ones in the loop.  But if they do this for War of the Worlds I am going to need alot of convincing that it was worth it, since the whole point is that everyone is panicking because they don't know what's going on.

I personally am hoping the Pendragon  Pictures, true to the book version gets some kind of wide release.  It doesn't have the  budget that Spielberg and Cruise have but I wanted to see a nicely done period piece done right.

Lucky stiffs that live in Washington state will be able to see it at  Paul Allen's Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame along with an exhibit  of props,miniatures, and artwork  used in the production.


And you thought Trek isn't cool.

Has anyone checked out:

Some of the extras from the film are talking in their forums and they mentioned that the aliens will be TRIPODS. Is that awesome or what???

Well of course they are going to be tripods, it aint worth a grain of salt if it aint tripods! [yes i know the other version had wierd floaty things, but come on!!]

I am a huge  fan of both Speilberg and Tom Cruise so I'm sure they won't disappoint this movie goer. If they do, it will definitely be a first.
