More WOW pics. What are they looking at?

I detect a pattern here with Spielberg WOW images. Are they trying to wip up speculation at exactly what Tom and his co-stars are looking at? Bring on the Martians!

They Live!

The theatrical trailer for the Pendragon version Of The War Of The Worlds is up and running and boy is it interesting. A bit highly strung in places (I don't think its the best edited trailer I have ever seen) but the overall feel is very encouraging. And yes, Martians do move in this one. For one brief moment you can see a Martian tripod striding along and there is a pretty cool shot of Big Ben in London getting decapitated. HG Wells would have loved it. Part of the appeal of writing the book for him was certainly the satisfaction he got from knocking hell out of the established order of things. This movie is clearly going to deliver in spades.
Trailer is here.

New WOTW pictures

A couple of new pictures have surfaced and pretty interesting they look too. The more I see of this, the more I hope the Spielberg movie it is at least trying to stick to the spirit of the original novel. Looks like lots of refugee action as people flee the advancing Maritians.

Dakota Fanning in incredibly nice shock

Young Dakota Fanning, starring alongside Tom Cruise, has really nice things to say about her co-star but gives nothing away in this interview.
