America watches in awe as aliens descend upon planet Earth.  Jack Nicholson portrays president James Dale who welcomes the visitors, and assumes (wrongfully so) that they have come peacefully.  The aliens begin their reign of terror by zapping a white dove from the sky, and annihilating national monuments such as Mount Rushmore.

Next the aliens destroy the Eiffel Tower, the Great Pyramid of Giza, TajMahal, and other historically significant sites.  Military officials consider a nuclear assault, but a much more unorthodox counterattack proves effective.

Mars Attacks!was nominated for an MTV Movie Award.  It earned $101 million at the box office.
