Synopsis

HG Wells' pioneering sci-fi story about Earth being invaded by Martians is shifted from Victorian Surrey to 21st-century New Jersey for this big-budget movie version. It is, though, still the story of an ordinary man who becomes a refugee in his own country as the people panic when they realise that neither politicians nor the military have any answer to the massive alien tripods striding across the landscape. Tom Cruise stars and Steven Spielberg directs this unusually sombre action adventure movie.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
