What if the Earth/Mars battle from H.G. Wells' classic novel The War of the Worlds wasn't fiction but actually fact? That's the story of WAR OF THE WORLDS THE TRUE STORY, 85th Academy Awards Oscar contender. Like the famous 1938 Orson Welles radio broadcast that caused Americans to believe an actual invasion was in progress, the movie assumes an Earth/Mars War in 1900 actually occurred and is presented as the first hand memoir of journalist Bertie Wells, the last living survivor as he struggles to find his wife amidst the destruction of humankind at the hands of terrifying alien invaders.
The movie uniquely uses CUTTING EDGE VISUAL EFFECTS to blend a modern cast with BATTALIONS OF ACTUAL FIGHTING SOLDIERS, Golden Age Movie Stars, and previously undisclosed images of TENTACLED ALIEN CREATURES and their TEN-STORY HIGH, THREE-LEGGED FIGHTING MACHINES. Movie's Official Website: www.waroftheworldsthetruestory.com (Sacramento Examiner Review) "Carries the suspense and drama of both the 1953 movie and Spielberg’s 2005 version but in a more realistic manner through its documentary style." - Steven Rose, Jr., Sacramento Examiner

(You Won Cannes) "Ever since the 1953 movie adaptation of War Of The Worlds there have been numerous other translations of Wells’ novel, even a 1988 short lived TV series, but of all the ones I have seen the only two—yes, only two—I find (Ain't It Cool News) "“The best film I had the privilege of seeing this week was WAR OF THE WORLDS: THE TRUE STORY. Even the sci fi effects feel authentic. I especially loved watching the attacks of both the aliens and the giant machines. There’s a touching love story in the middle that will definitely make your heart swell. Highly recommended.” - Ambush Bug, Ain't It Cool News
