The War of the Worlds is out on DVD today!
Set in Edwardian England, BBC One’s new three-part adaptation of H. G. Wells’s classic sci-fi novel stars Rafe Spall (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) as George and Eleanor Tomlinson (Poldark) as his partner Amy, attempting to survive an extra-terrestrial attack.
Adapted by Peter Harness (Doctor Who), this visceral thriller delivers a riveting and atmospheric collision of science fiction, period drama and horror – bringing one of literature’s most notorious foes vividly to life.
Watch the trailer:
After a huge meteor strikes Horsell Common in Surrey, England, the inhabitants of Earth face a vicious attack by an unknown alien race. Amidst the chaos, George leaves his loveless marriage in the hope of starting a new life with Amy, despite the condemnation of the community around them.
But for George and Amy, alongside every other human on the planet, this plan is suddenly interrupted when they soon find themselves fighting for their survival against a ruthless enemy beyond their comprehension – an enemy determined to destroy humanity and conquer the planet.
All three episodes are released on DVD in the UK today from ITV Studios Global Entertainment.
