For years aliens have been observing planet earth while its population remained oblivious.  When a series of violent lightening storms strike globally, the public realizes that more is occurring than turbulent weather.

Each lightening bolt drives a giant tripod into the ground, manned by aliens who use human blood as fertilizer. The military launches an offensive, but the vehicles are protected by an impenetrable force field.  Humankind as we know it may become extinct, unless man's ingenuity can defeat these extraterrestrial invaders.

War of the Worlds was nominated for 3 Oscars, an MTV Movie Award, and a Teen Choice Award.  Its box office returns were phenomenal, totaling $591 million.
