Apple TV plus has just released a new trailer and poster for the SF series Invasion which found inspiration in Wells ’novel War of the Worlds which was first published in 1898. The series is not an adaptation of the novel but an idea expanded into something new. The Invasion consists of a total of 10 episodes that focus on the alien invasion through different perspectives around the world.
Following multiple stories on several continents, we gain insight into how one alien invasion would affect us all. The series was first announced in 2019, and the first teaser was released in June this year. This full trailer gives us a better insight into how the world reacted to the invasion and how it affected our infrastructure to the point that humanity almost ended up in a post-apocalyptic scenario. For now, we’ve only got a brief look at the aliens, and we expect it to stay that way until the series arrives on Apple TV plus.
We are not alone. Alien beings have arrived on Earth. Civilization could collapse. And survival is up to you. Feel what it’s like to live in a period of alien invasion.
The creators and screenwriters of the series are Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Dark Phoenix, The Martian) and David Weil (Hunters, Solos), and the screenplay is co-written with Andrew Baldwin (The Outsider). Executive producers are Kinberg, Weil, Baldwin, Audrey Chon (The Twilight Zone), Amy Kaufman (When They See Us), Elisa Ellis, Jakob Verbruggen and Katie O’Connell Marsh (Narcos). The directors are Amanda Marsalis (Ozark, Westworld, The Umbrella Academy), Jamie Payne (The Alienist, Luther, New Amsterdam, Outlander) and Jakob Verbruggen (Code 37, House of Cards, Black Mirror, The Alienist).
