Steven Spielberg’s Falling Skies Trailer

Steven Spielberg knows aliens. Just ask E.T. or Richard Dreyfuss (Close Encounters of the Third Kind). You can even ask Indiana Jones (Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull). Sidebar: Harrison Ford isn’t trying to kill Indy, after all.

Now Spielberg is hard at work at a new alien invasion thriller. It isn’t a film. He is working on a slew of those, though, to include producing Transformers: Dark of the Moon, I Am Number Four, Cowboys & Aliens, and Super 8 (where he teams with J. J. Abrams), which all seem to involve elements of the extraterrestrial. He will also direct The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn (produced by Peter Jackson). But the topic of the hour is Falling Skies.

The series, produced by DreamWorks Television and in development for the TNT network will hit the small screen June of 2011. It all begins with “a bright light that made all the electronics stop working” according to the brand spankin’ new trailer for the show. “Then they came. There were millions of them.” Welcome to the new war of the worlds, so to speak. It will be epic and will star E.R.‘s Noah Wyle and Termiantor: Salvation‘s Moon Bloodgood.
