When the aliens came to town they arrived in really big ships, and we weren’t gonna attack them with the nuclear bombs ’cause they might’ve wanted to be friends. Told from a child’s perspective the new trailer for Steven Spielberg’s alien invasion series FALLING SKIES packs a wallop.
Created by DreamWorks Television FALLING SKIES follows the same formula established by WAR OF THE WORLDS, and the invading aliens are tentacle monsters with lots of crazy weaponry that can disable human technolgy and the only explanation for their attack apears to be conquering the Earth and its inhabitants.
The only thing standing in the alien’s way is Noah Wyle and his group of civilians planning to get their civil unrest on. Their plan is to make so much trouble that the invading alien force will turn tail and run, not bothering to take over the puny little planet because it will be far too much trouble. FALLING SKIES will be landing on cable television in June 2011 on TNT.
“FALLING SKIES is an exciting new series from DreamWorks Television and executive producer Steven Spielberg. Noah Wyle (ER, TNT’s The Librarian movies) stars as a former college professor who becomes the leader of a group of soldiers and civilians struggling against an occupying alien force. Moon Bloodgood (Terminator Salvation) co-stars as Anne Glass, a therapist who works with the surviving children to help them cope with the traumatic situation.
The series also stars Drew Roy (Lincoln Heights) as Hal and Maxim Knight (Brothers & Sisters) as Matt, Tom’s two sons; and Seychelle Gabriel (Weeds) as Lourdes, an orphaned teenager who helps run the group’s commissary. Will Patton (Armageddon, TNT’s Into the West) will play a recurring role as a fierce resistance fighter.”
