Steven Spielberg's alien invasion TV show Falling Skies gets a new trailer

12.28.2010

The Steven Spielberg produced alien invasion series "Falling Skies" doesn't premiere until June but TNT is already getting a jump on the advertising with a brand new trailer for the series. Noah Wyle and Moon Bloodgood star in the series that takes place in the six months after an alien invasion.

The trailer uses the oft-creepy imagery of children's crayon drawings before showing us some footage of aliens invading. It's a mixed bag as far as the FX go with some shots looking impressive while others leaving a lot to be desired. I'm not sure what to think of this yet. I like the ambition but, like "The Walking Dead," just because I like the concept and appreciate the effort, it doesn't always mean I'll love the product. But hey, it's got to be better than SKYLINE, right? Take a look at the trailer below and see for yourself.

Well, Spielberg knows aliens, even if he does overplay it at times. Still, if anyone can produce a decent alien invasion series, it's Spielberg. This looks like decent entertainment. I'm not holding my breath for something fantastic, but at least this should be fun.

Still trying to figure out that Walking Dead comment. I don't understand anything that has 'not good' and The Walking Dead in the same sentence.

I think too many people are saying movie looks like this and so and so, but how could they ever know unless they watched it. And I mean more than a few episodes. Don't people go for suspense and mystery anymore? So I can say I will give this shot and watch it.

Looks like a mix of V and The Sarah Conner Chronicles. I'll watch it for curiousity sakes. It looks interesting though. Heck, it's Spielberg. (Although that doesn't mean spit)

Looks good enough to me. Will check it out. Not a big Noah Wyle fan though. Trying to spark a Walking Dead debate there, Mike? LOL . . .

It looks interesting enough to give it a shot. Looks prety much the same as V though, and I totally blame ABC for destroying that show. I'll never fathom how they can show 4 episodes then shit can it for 3 months. Bring it back to sub par ratings and then push a 10 episode 2nd season to the dead of winter.

Agree with Miguel Montes this new show looks way better than the new V reboot. At least ain't as crappy as Skyline.

Considering they just finished filming this a little over a month ago, I'm willing to give them some leeway on the graphics. Could be great, could be not so great.

People who have seen the first few episodes are saying it is pretty damn good.

Eh...

It looks like a regularly produced TNT show... as in bad. If Spielberg wanted this to be good, should've gone to FX or AMC...

No one took FX and AMC seriously until Damages and Mad Men. Every network has to start somewhere when moving into the elite.

It doesn't look that bad. I think if they'd told you it was on FX or AMC you'd have posted something positive.

Meh

I think Spielberg has hit that "one note orchestra" feeling now. He's capable of doing great things with his films, but now everything is obsessing on aliens. Even Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (spoilers) touched on the alien thingy. Yeah he can possibly do a good job with this show. But it can also be one of those real derivative dribbles. We've had a glut of invasion movies and shows lately. They're kinda killing it.

I might check it out, but I am not really a fan of Noah.

yeah

Don't think I'll be watching this. I bet it will end up like all the other epic TV shows. Good first episode, not so great at the end of the season, Canceled by the end of season 2.

It looks cool but I dont want to watch it through fear of getting hooked and then the bastards pull the plug. They do this all too often. Firefly, Deadwood etc. etc.

The Walking Dead wasn't incredible but it built a good foundation making something incredible possible in the future.

Falling Skies looks like it put all it's chips on the table. And there's a reason nobody really sees Noah Wyle anymore.

Holy smoke, not another alien invasion show ?? Talk about an over-exploited theme!! All they do is change the shape of the creatures and their ships and give us the same basic story!
