Next year, Steven Spielberg reclaims his throne as the king of all media. As director or producer, he releases more than seven films and will unveil two epic serialized science fiction television series, including TNT’s Falling Skies. Though its premise may be a bit familiar to those following ABC’s V, this fresh trailer promises less double-entendre and espionage and more straight up invasion anarchy.
Noah Wyle stars as a college professor turned leader of the human resistance against the extraterrestrial onslaught. Moon Bloodgood, Drew Roy, Maxim Knight, Seychelle Gabriel and Will Patton co-star. Check out the trailer and official synopsis below!
