    Tom cruise rocks!

    The orginal music isn't in the trailer, but it has a re working of the opening voice over though which is quite cool. Also you don't see much of anything in the teaser

    Incidentally there is another war of the worlds movie currently being made. Its an independent film and is set in the same era as the book.

    My word, very nice. My favourite HG Wells novel, without a doubt- can't wait to see this on the big screen :)

    Yeah you end up not knowing which movie your watching cause he's the same in every one of them.Bit like Dido's music,you can sing the words of one song to all the rest :p

    @ Perris,I installed Quicktime to watch the trailer and ended up doing a restore cause it messed everything up,never again :rolleyes:

    never install quicktime. it will takeover your computer and control all the media files and really piss you off.

    Use quicktime alternative ;)
    http://www.free-codecs.com/download/QuickTime_Alternative.htm

    QuickTime Alternative will allow you to play QuickTime files (.mov, .qt and other extensions) without having to install the official QuickTime Player. It also supports QuickTime content that is embedded in webpages.

    They also make one for the annoying Realplayer
    Realplayer alternative
