The War Of The Worlds

Coming soon to TVNZ 1, the alien invasion classic is adapted, like you’ve never seen before.

Set in Edwardian England, this major new television adaptation of H.G. Wells’ seminal tale - the first alien invasion story in literature - follows George (Rafe Spall, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, The Big Short) and his partner Amy (Eleanor Tomlinson, Poldark, Loving Vincent) as they attempt to defy society and start a new life together.

Rupert Graves (Swimming With Men, Sherlock) stars as Frederick, George’s elder brother, and Robert Carlyle (T2 Trainspotting, Once Upon A Time) plays Ogilvy, an astronomer and scientist.

A gripping collision of science-fiction, period drama and horror, this visceral thriller tells their story as they face the escalating terror of an alien attack after a huge meteor strike.

As the inhabitants of Earth slowly fall victim to a vicious invasion, they must fight for their lives against a ruthless enemy beyond their comprehension, an enemy determined to destroy humanity and conquer the planet.
