Today on TV The full load of apocalypse for sci-fi fans — 3 hours of pure end-of-the-world cinema! — Cinema News

BBC

While catastrophe film pope Roland Emmerich is currently once again creating a doomsday mood in cinemas worldwide with » Moonfall «, Tele5 has also recently conspired to the apocalypse — even if the station, which is so popular with genre film fans, is baking much smaller buns. After trash pickles like » Asteroid-A-Geddon » (February 24) and » Apocalypse Earth » (March 8), today’s program includes a much larger, more expensive and all-round better genre contribution: it will be on from 8:15 p.m » The War Of The Worlds «.

In view of the large number of adaptations of HG Wells’ legendary science fiction classic, the question naturally arises: Which film adaptation is on TV today? The answer: It’s the BBC’s 2019 mini-series, which is closer to the original than any other version — and consists of three hour-long episodes. So that means that for a whole evening (from 8:15 p.m. to 11:45 p.m.) you will be served pure destruction on a silver platter. Fans of orgies of destruction and sci-fi cinema with a mood of end of the world should have the broadcast on their list, but also go into the evening with realistic expectations…

«War of the Worlds» true to the original — and yet very different

What’s special about the adaptation is that, for the first time in a film adaptation, the extraterrestrials attack humanity in 19th-century London, just like in the famous original. In this way, the film also differs from Steven Spielberg’s “ War of the Worlds ” from 2005, which brings the story to present-day America.

This, of course, results in completely different possibilities of bringing the past and the future together not only in terms of content, but also visually. At the center of the story is the protagonist, known as the nameless narrator of the original, but here he goes by the name George (played by Rafe Spall , «Jurassic World 2») and is actually starting a new life with Amy ( Eleanor Tomlinson , «Poldark «) wants to build. But that could come to an abrupt end before it even began. Because the monsters from outer space raging on the globe flatten everything that gets in their way and above all trigger a feeling in the almost puny and inferior people: powerlessness.
