I really rather like this. For once, a classy voiceover that wasn't written by a complete fool. Nice ominous feeling to the whole thing, and ending with an impressive, but rather restrained effects shot. Basically, exactly what i want from a teaser trailer.

It will be interesting to see how this movie turns out. I really like the trailer too - very simple but leaves me wanting to see more. I like the the way the sky changes colour at the end - very simple effect, again, but very, um *cough* effective.

I have the original movie at home, that 1950s one. Very cheesy (that bloody church scene, for chrissake!) but pretty good for the period. Won an Oscar for best Special Effects, I believe. We've come a long way...

I hope they don't screw it up, War Of The Worlds is one of my favourite stories.

I really wanted them to set it in the proper time period though, seeing Victorian England getting vapourised by the heat ray just seems to be a classier way of doing the film.

I bet we don't get to see the Thunderchild blasting a few tripods sad


The only thing that worries me is the tagline They Are Already Here, makes it sound like it has gone way off the subject...

I kind of liked it, but after watching it, I kind of had an empty feel. They didn't show anything really interesting or cool.

Why? He's not that bad. It remains to be seen what kind of role his character is though.

He's not really a bad actor, he just does over-the-top facial expressions sometimes. smile

He has some excellent* acting in almost all the movies he's been in.

*-Added in because it somehow got left out when I wrote the sentence the first time.

To be honest, I dont know why Tom Cruise bothers the heck out of me. It may just be his acting style, I dont know, but therre have been movies hes been in that I think I woul;d have enjoyed more had he nmot been the lead character.

I really dont think Spielberg is all that great. I mean, I guess thats phrased wrong. "He's good at mysterious sci-fi/fantasy thriller movies. This Cruise/Spielberg amalgam-deal is working well for both of them. Looks cool. The people all coming outside reminds me of that Twilight Zone episode.

Honestly my favorite Spielberg movie is Saving Private Ryan. Superb movie. War of the Worlds is a superb book, if you like oldies, so this looks very very promising smile

Jaws, Saving Private Ryan, Jurassic Park, Catch me if you can, Shrek, Schindlers list, Fievel goes West are all films that don't cross into the mysterious sci-fi/fantasy genre. I think you just made yourself look stupid.

War of the worlds was a great book and a good old movie, it'll be interesting to see as to whether the remake is a homage or a total disgrace, it could swing either way. Though I think Cruise is a great actor when given a good script, Take Interview with a Vampire for example. When not playing generic action heroes Cruise is rather good.

As for hating the twilight zone, you're a bit young to have really watched it, let alone understand it. I'd reserve judgement if I were you.

Heresy!

Spielberg was actually the first director that I ever thought was the cat's pajamas. In essence, he's the reason I got into filmmaking.

Spielberg is one of the greatest directors of all time, and I'm sorry everyone, but Tom Cruise is a DAMN fine actor, and the only reason y'all are nay-saying is because you're trying to be cool.

Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, no matter how heinous it may appear to others. And calling someone stupid only worsens things.

HOWEVER. Jurassic Park is one of my favorite movies of all time; and neither atom nor myself have seen Saving Private Ryan- damn ABC cancelling the broadcast premiere of it!- so I doubt he based his opinion upon a movie which he had never seen. wink

Speilberg is kick-ass director, the reason most of us got into filmmaking- it sure as hell wasn't Lucas- and I tihnk everyone adores him. Maybe atom was just considering some of his newer, werder stuff: AI (not so great), Minority Report (atom fave movie, one of my least faves), and a plethora of others.

As for Catch me if you Can....it was cool, but it had its slow parts and I ended up actually falling asleep during it in the theatres...man was that embarrassing. All-in-all, Speilbergs awesome, some people need to get over it, some people don't think he's awesomewhich makes them senseless morons.

Trust me, I've seen plenty of Twilight Zone, and I completely understand it- every episode has some type of cruel irony, I get it- I just don't like them. They weird me out. I really think that the Twilight Zone just has a target audience and I'm not it. As for judging me on my age, perhaps you're right; perhaps I don't fully understand it, but I'm smart enough to know some things and I do have grounds for disliking it. Please don't nay-say me.

Whoa, you guys, I just said that I think of him as that kind of director. Not that he didnt make movies that didnt fit what I put. Minority Report is one of my favorite movies.

I've seen several Spielberg films, and I liked many of them. The films I enjoy are primarily the sci-fi/thriller ones.

Jaws is a mysterious thriller.
Andrew Adamson directed Shrek.

I understand Twilight Zone just fine, Hybrid. I've watched it for a while, and can comprehend it just as well as you could. I think it's pretty ignorant of you to tell me to reserve my opinion. And I never said I disliked it, let alone hate it. I'm not trying to be a raging teenager mucking up the forums and arguing, but I'm tired of you acting as if I'm small-minded and dont like things just because I dont understand them.

I didnt just make myself look stupid. If you think I did, so what? Did you?

Spielberg is great - Indiana Jones! That's not sci-fi. He's not the greatest director ever though, he's had some bad films & he does sometimes make some really cheesy schmuck. As for Tom Cruise - yes, he is a good actor. He had an image in the 80s as a prettyboy pin-up, but he still had Rain Man, Top Gun & Born on the Fourth of July. Then, when you look at his films from 1992 onwards, they've all been good films & good performances bar Eyes Wide Shut & Vanilla Sky.

Be interesting to see how War of the Worlds turns out, especially considering it will have been produced in only 8 months (that's if it keeps to its release date)

Not particularly difficult, since they just nicked the voice over from the Jeff Waynes Musical version released in June 1978 (just used a different voice [Richard Burton did the original] and changed "...of the 20th century..." to "... of the 21st centuary...")

The 1978 musical version was excellent. Beautiful music and perfectly told by Burton. I'll reserve judgement on the film until I see it (or a better trailer). Hopefully Speilberg has tried to keep close to the original story, but by the looks of the trailer it's once again set in America (rather than London).

A english film compagny have made a "war of the world" movie exactly as the book. It will come out next year. That one reason because Spielberg want too finish his version quickly. Because the fan of the book will like more the english version than his.

I will try too find the site will the trailer and post it here.

I can't think of any Speilberg film that I didn't like. They're all great.

But this teaser didn't have the same kick as say the Minority Report one, but I liked it.

The usual ben tradition of posting 2 posts for what can be said with one I presume.
Posting something which makes you sound stupid, then posting bemusingly long winded essays in retort to criticism you recieve as a result of them doesn't highlight the problem where it began, your haenous opinion.

So... sure you're entitled to an opinion, and I'm entitled to mine. My opinion was that your opinion was rather stupid and by the looks of most of the posts since I'd say that my opinions falls on the same side as the majorities.

You do the math.

Also, Though my twilight zone statement was aimed at Ben, I really think age does come into account in some circumstances, infact... in many circumstances and you have to realise that you guys are still relatively inexperienced on a grand scale of things, as am I. Except I'd say that I have a greater understanding and abilitity to decipher meaning where you cannot, attempting to slander me for writing you off for being kids isn't totally wise. As you are just kids, deal with it.

It's not my intention to outright insult you, but if your only reaction to my criticism is to be pseudo mature then you can get used to this kind of response.

Back onto the topic at hand, I'm not entirely convinced by this trailer. But then again... I wasn't moved by a fair few trailers for films that have blown me away and vice versa, will be interesting to see how this one goes.

Have you seen the trailer? Their movie may be closer to the book, but it looks like utter garbage.

Here's a link to the trailer: http://stuffo.howstuffworks.com/wotw-hinestwo.htm (It's at the bottom of the page, for the slow ones.)

I have to say, that War of the Worlds is my FAVORITE all-time sci-fi story. Not because it is technically great, or even holds it's own compared to others. But I saw it when I was growing up and it was imprinted on me. i have many tidbits, collectables, a few props, etc. from the whole storyline. Hell, Glenn Beck did the dest modern re-do of it live on radio that blew me away.

That being said, for me it is like trampling on sacred ground. They can't do it justice compared to the imprint the original left on me. However, production wise it is very interesting. They are on a FAST production schedule, with the visual effects getting done often days after the "print" call gets made. Look on-line for more info. Kind of like the way we schlepts try to make our films, lol.

I am sure it will be entertaining to watch, and at least has a nod or two in the direction of the original.

Meh. Looks okay really. Pretty well put together trailer, didn't exactly grab you by the balls though did it.

Still I expect it to be good, I can count the Spielberg movies I dislike on one finger. And until someone shows me at least three films in which Tom Cruise gives a bad performance, he'll be a great actor. As of yet, I can't name one film in which he's bad.

I love M:I-2. Great acting, great direction, good writing. Good cinematography and editing. Looks cool. Thandie Newton's cleavage. Great music and the best action scenes to come out of Hollywood. It's one of my favourites.

That doesn't count for me.

There was a link to a better trailer of the lower budget War of the Worlds (that's actually coming out a couple of weeks in America before Spielberg's) at Hollywood-Elsewhere

http://stuffo.howstuffworks.com/wotw-videos.htm

It looks better than the other one, although some of the texts look amatuerish & the 3d of Big Ben had better not be the final version.

Yeah, although the Big Ben model looked pretty lame, I thought the tracking of it htting the bridge was wellconstructed and timed. I'll give that a look-see when it comes out.

I'm interested in seeing the one from england just because I think wotw would be better set in the original text. The new age of cruise missiles and long range artillery and nukes and stealth bombers makes it harder to see tripods just walking around cities picking up humans as they go. plus DAKOTA FANNING I MEAN COME ON

Nope! If you watched the trailer, you would know that you are wrong. The aliens kill all the power, so I'm guessing it kills a lot of other stuff that uses electricity. Maybe.

And Dakota Fanning looks like she's going to steal the show in this movie.

I dont know why you all are moaning so much...I think the trailer looks really good. It doesnt tell you much of the story which makes it even more interesting and DIFFERENT from others...
I think thats a big problem for many...they dont like things that are DIFFERENT...

For instance...I think the Bourne Supremacy was extremely good and not to hollywood like... which Spielberg I guess is also trying to achieve...
But ofcourse Hollywood changed it all..making the movie set at present time...to make it more cool and whatever..but still it LOOKS EXTREMELY GOOD !!!

Cheers,
