First Look at BBC’s ‘War of the Worlds’

Filming is now underway in Liverpool on the BBC’s adaptation of H.G. Wells’ sci-fi classic, The War Of The Worlds

Director Craig Viveiros (Rillington Place) remarked: “H.G. Wells’ seminal novel has been adapted for the screen many times but it’s always had a contemporary (and American) setting, this is the first version to be set in London and the Home Counties during the Edwardian period.”

This version stars Eleanor Tomlinson (Poldark) and Rafe Spall (The Life Of Pi, The Big Short) as Amy and George, following the couple as they face a familiar alien enemy with an interesting new twist.

The War Of The Worlds will air on BBC One later this year
