‘Falling Skies’ Looks Wildly Original

03.30.11 7 years ago 13 Comments

We already posted a first look at TNT’s “Falling Skies” back in December, but that trailer got pulled off of YouTube, and now we have a TNT-sanctioned promo for it. In case you’re unfamiliar with “Falling Skies” and have never seen a TV show or movie about an alien invasion, here’s the breakdown: Steven Spielberg is producing the drama, which stars Noah Wyle as the leader in the human resistance six months after malevolent aliens take over Earth. It should in no way be confused with District 9, which was an original take on the subject of alien invasion. Nor should it be confused with Independence Day, “Invasion,” “V” the TV show, “V” the original miniseries, the new “Battlestar Galactica,” Mars Attacks, War of the Worlds (original or remake), Signs, PredatorsBattlefield Earth, or “The Invaders.” This is a totally new and fresh take on alien invasion, in that it has Noah Wyle wearing a beard.

Anyway, the new trailer/featurette is below. I’ll give the show this much: at least they don’t skimp on shots of the aliens. I hate it when you don’t get to see the monsters. *cough* CLOVERFIELD! *cough*
