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.
