     April 18, 2011


Earlier this month, Adam brought you his thoughts on the Falling Skies footage that debuted at WonderCon. Today, you can check out some of the eerie footage for yourself in the form of a five-minute sneak peek. Executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Falling Skies stars Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Drew Roy, Will Patton, and Maxin Knight as a group of survivors following a deadly alien invasion. The series premieres on TNT on Sunday, June 19th at 9/8c. Hit the jump to check out the footage.

Here is the five-minute sneak peek of Falling Skies [thanks to io9 for the heads up]:

Here’s the synopsis for the series:

FALLING SKIES opens in the chaotic aftermath of an alien attack that has left most of the world completely incapacitated. The few remaining survivors have banded together outside major cities to begin the difficult task of fighting back. Each day is a test of survival as citizen soldiers engage in an insurgency campaign against the occupying alien force, whose nature and purpose remains a mystery. FALLING SKIES is a tale of endurance, commitment and courage in which everyday people are called upon to become heroes. The survivors may be outmatched, outnumbered and outgunned, but nothing can beat the human spirit. The series combines stunning visual effects and personal human stories about triumph and survival in the most devastating circumstances.

Falling Skies stars Wyle as Tom Mason, a Boston history professor whose family has been torn apart. Bloodgood also stars as Anne Glass, a pediatrician who works with the survivors. Will Patton (Armageddon, TNT’s Into the West) plays a fierce leader of the resistance, Weaver. And Roy plays Mason’s eldest son and fellow- fighter, Hal. FALLING SKIES comes to TNT from DreamWorks Television and executive producer Steven Spielberg.

    Sorry, this screams epic fail from the whinny kids voices to the premise of this.

      *whining Sorry, I know you didn’t proofread your comment or anything. I’m just a stickler about spelling errors.

      Anyways, I just watched the clip… Whiny kids? Do you classify kids talking about their dead parents as “whiny”? I absolutely disagree with you in every respect. This looks like an interesting series. I’m definitely going to watch.

    I thought that was pretty great. Worked for me.

    What whiny kids? Didn’t hear any whining, myself.

  • jethrosketch

    I wouldn’t say Whiny kids more like a cheezy intro to a story. plus the aliens look like all the cliche’s put together….all limbs included

  • jethrosketch

    I wouldn’t say Whiny kids more like an extremely cheezy intro
    and the aliens look like all the cliches all mutated into one numerous limbed weirdo.

    Forget about the kids–that’s just a device to deliver back story. This thing’s looking better than I’d hoped. Most of that could’ve been part of a Terminator movie before they screwed up Terminator movies. But the spider aliens are actually scarier than robots.
