With the new alien invasion TV series Falling Skies set to hit US telly boxes this June (and hopefully our own not long after that), executive producer Steven Spielberg and the rest of the creative team are naturally eager to make sure people remember that it’s on the way. So they’ve launched a series of new TV ads to big up the show.
Falling Skies, which features Saving Private Ryan writer Robert Rodat on script duties and Carl Franklin calling the shots, finds Noah Wyle as former college professor Tom Mason, who has to help fellow survivors of the extraterrestrial barrage stay alive.
Earth, you see, has been brutally attacked by the nasty space types, who took out our military installations, then went after the world’s capitals in a way that would make Roland Emmerich beam with pride, assuming he wasn’t blasted into a million little pieces during the first wave.
Now, with the aliens hunting the stragglers, mankind has to start forming some sort of resistance – or at least ensuring that someone is around to keep the species going.
With that creative pedigree, it’ll hopefully be something good. Take a look at the previews below.
