It has been kind of a slow week for movie trailers, but HBO and Netflix have released some series trailers that are definitely worth taking a look at. This week we have trailers for The Mandela Effect, Bloodshot, and Adopt a Highway as well as HBO’s​ Watchmen, the final season of Silicon Valley, and 2020 series The Outsider, and finally, Netflix has released a trailer for the third season of The Crown featuring a whole new cast.

Oh, and a B-Movie franchise called "Star Wars" released a trailer as well.

Review: ‘The War of the Worlds’ is a thoughtful, Edwardian adventure

War of the Worlds

The War of the Worlds is a classic story that has been adapted numerous times. Whether your favourite is the Orson Welles radio drama, the Tom Cruise/Steven Spielberg adaptation, or Independence Day this is clearly a story you’ve seen before.

What’s interesting though is that despite the many adaptations there are precious few that take place within the time frame of the original written story. Which is one of the two refreshing changes with this thoughtful adaptation of the story produced by the BBC and airing on T+E in Canada.

If you’re expecting an action blockbuster I’m telling you that you should temper those expectations right now, this adaptation is a thoughtful slow burn more concerned with the effect the invasion would have than the invasion itself. That is to say, it’s pretty good.
