War of the Worlds 2 PosterOn April 1, 2008 the sequel to one of the most successful direct-to-video films of all time (and the movie that started The Asylum on the Mockbusters), WAR OF THE WORLDS 2: THE NEXT WAVE will hit the video shelves.

Three years have passed since the Martian invasion, but George Herbert suspects that we haven’t heard the last of the alien invaders.

This time when the Walkers attack, we’re ready for them.

What’s left of human society launches a counter attackĀ and we take the battle back to Mars.

Directed by and starring C. Thomas Howell.

      Damn, looks like there is a lot of time and effort into WotW2. I liked the first one and this one…looks to be a really great sequel. Trailer was awesome, though I think the very last part with C. Thomas Howell and the Walker coulda been cut out. Sometimes your trailers show too much. Outside of that, can’t wait to get my hands on a copy.

      With a little (very little) spit and polish, there’s no reason in the world director David Michael Latt’s version of H.G. Wells’ “The War of the Worlds” couldn’t have been a major theatrical release on par with Steven Spielberg’s bigger-budget version of the same story (released practically simultaneously with this film). As it stands, this is simply one of the finest direct-to-video flicks to come in out in recent years and a damned good movie it is, too.

      Naturally, there are things standing in its favour that would hinder its box office success. The script is far too literate for most multiplex audiences to digest in one sitting; somebody actually took the time to crack open a book or too for research while writing this thing. Furthermore, circumstances meant the filmmakers had to select the best actors for the roles who could actualize this script and imbue it with real emotion rather than dishing out extra money for the usual bevy of Hollywood stars we see over and over again in movies, tabloids, and entertainment television.

      Worst of all, this film had the misfortune of being released during a year when an almost unprecedented number of similar movies baring the same title made their way onto video and movie screens. Between the flurry of negative publicity over one version and the overwhelming hype of the other, this version is severely in danger of disappearing altogether.

      The simple fact is that the folks at The Asylum — the production team responsible for this version — could’ve easily made this story into a cheap “video nasty” cash-grab, but they didn’t. Instead, they chose to make a real movie out of the source material with resources that would’ve barely covered the catering bills on larger projects. The story of “The War of the Worlds” has always been bigger than the Martian tripods it depicts: its implications run much deeper than that into the veins of society and the politics that drive it. The people who made this version seem to have understood that and made their film accordingly.

      Give this film a rent. It’s well worth your time and money. Fans of the book who are disenchanted with the myriad other cinematic interpretations of this story are bound to find at least something to love in this scrappy, heartfelt little production

      Hello,

      We have just watched the “movie” War of the worlds 2: the next wave.
      we realised that we just came round from a COMATEUSE status where we layed total wasted in a foetal possition CAUSED by your “MOVIE”.

      I bought that movie in a glimp of hope that this would be a sequel to the original War of the worlds from 1953.
      But no. This is just a small excuse for a MOVIE!

      The only thing you can be proud of is that we wont forget your movie. It will be forever remembered as the worst movie ever seen.
      Can you please tell us where we can get our money back?
