TNT’s science-fiction series Falling Skies is a satisfying blend of Jericho, V, and The Walking Dead, a post-apocalyptic drama that chronicles the aftermath of a cataclysmic, debilitating alien invasion.

Created by screenwriter Robert Rodat (Saving Private Ryan) and executive producer Steven Spielberg, Falling Skies is a 21st century spin on The Spirit of ’76 – an American Revolutionary War where the oppressors are extraterrestrials. In only a matter of days, the invaders neutralized our technologies and annihilated 90 percent of the world’s population, leaving only pockets of resistance to fight back.

Trailer For Steven Spielberg-Produced Sci-Fi TV Series ‘Falling Skies’ Released
  |  @   |  

The first trailer for the new TNT alien invasion TV series, Falling Skies, has been released online.

The show is executive produced by none other than Steven Spielberg, and tells the story of human survivors banding together after a devastating alien attack on our planet. Nothing is the same or ever will be again, but these survivors need to find a way to work together and learn the weaknesses of the invading species so that they may fight back and rebuild civilization.

The show certainly looks like it could be a hybrid of Skyline and Spielberg’s War of the Worlds remake, but fans of sci-fi may be interested in giving it a try when Falling Skies arrives in June of 2011.

You can read a lengthy synopsis and see the trailer for yourself by clicking over now, and you can also read a companion web comic by heading over to TNT’s website.

Movie Review: Terminator Salvation

Terminator Salvation
Directed by McG
Starring Christian Bale, Anton Yelchin, Sam Worthington, Bryce Dallas Howard, Moon Bloodgood, Common
Rated PG-13
Release date: May 21, 2009

The future is not set. There is no fate but what we make for ourselves.

Being a big fan of the Terminator film series ever since I was in elementary school I always took those words to heart. Time is always in a state of flux and the most minor action could set forth a series of events that could impact future events greatly or simply peter out. The message was that we are all in complete control of our individual destinies and the possibilities are endless. The Terminator movies were not the kind most parents would usually allow their children to watch but my mom did not really care. Her and I, we had a trust. The concepts of time travel and how the slightest mistake in the past can have large scale consequences in the future have been explored in popular fiction for more than a century by authors such as H.G. Wells and Ray Bradbury. The Terminator movies took these concepts and melded them with moral and philosophical ideals and hard-driving action under an umbrella of eternal darkness and storms of fire and rain. They made a movie star out of a Hitler-admiring bodybuilder from Austria, gave a prolific directing career to a former truck driver and Roger Corman protégé from Canada, and raised the bar for cinematic science fiction. Even the unnecessary third entry, Rise of the Machines, had its moments.
