They've quietly laid their plans to take this world from us. An alien force from the stars sets its sights on taking the Earth for their own purposes. But first they must eliminate the native species who may resist. That species is us!

H.G. Wells 1897 science-fiction classic The War of the Worlds has been adapted countless time for its thought provoking and chilling themes. Orson Welles Mercury Theatre radio program terrified a nation on October 30th, 1938 convincing a nation that a very real invasion was occurring. War of the Worlds would finally be brought to the screen for the first time in 1958 by famed producer George Pal and director Byron Haskins with stars Gene Barry and Ann Robinson. Several adaptions would be made over the years (sorry we can't cover them all) but none bigger than Steven Spielberg's survivor's of the invasion version from 2005 starring Tom Cruise, Dakota Fanning, Tim Robbins and Justin Chatwin. Join us as we compare these two amazing films! We here at Invasion of the Remake may have a soft spot for aliens, but this week we stand with Earth, as we are on the front lines of the War of the Worlds!
