La Guerre Des Mondes, aka The War of the Worlds, is a television series produced by Fox Networks Group and StudioCanal-backed Urban Myth Films.
Astronomer Catherine Durand detects a strong signal from dwarf planet Ross 128 which is of intelligent origin. Soon afterwards a large group of meteors impacts the centres of all major inhabited areas of Earth. They are indeed metallic spacecraft. Blind teenager Emily can hear strange pulsing sounds, while scientist Bill recognises the magnetic signal in the pulses (received by equipment from his brain research). He tries to warn his son Dan, and goes to find his ex-wife Helen. The magnetic signal increases and quickly kills all humans who are not underground, underwater or in metallic rooms. In London, Sarah Gresham, with her children, Tom and Emily, fortunately drive into an underground parade, while her husband Jonathan is in Paris, where his taxi plunges into the Seine at an opportune moment. Kariem enters England illegally, hiding inside a metal storage cylinder, and emerges to find himself alone in a strange environment. Catherine’s sister Sophia tries to reach her at the observatory.
