BAFTA Cymru: War of the Worlds Preview + Q&A

Mon 1 January 0001 - Wed 23 October 2019

A chance to see the first episode of a new adaptation of sci-fi series War of the Worlds starring Gabriel Byrne (The Usual Suspects) before it is broadcast on Fox later this year.

When astronomers detect a transmission from another galaxy, it is definitive proof of intelligent extra-terrestrial life. The world’s population waits for further contact with bated breath. They do not have to wait long. Within days, mankind is all but wiped out by a devastating attack; pockets of humanity are left in an eerily deserted world.

As aliens hunt and kill those left alive, the survivors ask a burning question – who are these attackers and why are they hell-bent on our destruction? Emotional, cinematic and rooted in character, it is a marriage of human drama and the best science fiction.

Set in present-day Europe, War of the Worlds is a multi-faceted series filmed on location in Cardiff, written and created by the BAFTA award winner Howard Overman (Misfits, Crazyhead, Merlin) based on the timeless story by H.G. Wells.  It is being Executive Produced by Johnny Capps, Julian Murphy, and Howard Overman through their company, Urban Myth Films.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with key creatives (details to follow). 

Prices:

£7.90 (£6.00 concs)
