As Tom Cruise’s WAR OF THE WORLDS exits the theaters, the only true movie adaptation of the H.G. Wells classic novel, produced by Pendragon Pictures, continues enjoying strong DVD sales in the U.S. and Canada. Now, Pendragon Pictures announces the international release of the Director’s Cut of H.G. WELLS’ THE WAR OF THE WORLDS. The never-before-seen Director’s Cut features new enhanced special effects, new scenes and faster pacing. Director Timothy Hines comments, “I had the opportunity to re-cut the film for the foreign release and subsequent U.S. distribution and I’m proud of the end result. Virtually every scene in the film has been reconceived and retimed from the original Summer release. It plays remarkably better.

H.G. Wells’ The War Of The Worlds Is Filmed! Pendragon Pictures
Pendragon Pictures proudly announces the completion of principal photography of H.G. WELLS’ THE WAR OF THE WORLDS. Set in Wells’ intended turn-of-the-century English locale, the movie is the world’s first authentic adaptation of the H.G. Wells classic 1898 novel. The live-action production, lensed in tight security under the cover title THE GREAT BOER WAR, took two and a half months to complete on location in England and the Pacific Northwest. The picture wrapped almost three years to the date when Pendragon’s original updated version of WAR OF THE WORLDS was shut down due to the events of September 11th. Director Timothy Hines reflects, “We never stopped really. After an initial two-week hiatus, we saw the light in adapting a dead-on accurate version of THE WAR OF THE WORLDS from the original source material.

Pendragon Pictures announces that, due to many story similarities of their production of WAR OF THE WORLDS to the tragic and horrific events surrounding the World Trade Center attack, production is forced to go on hiatus. For at least one to two weeks the principles at Pendragon Pictures will assess the project’s potential effects on the spirit of the world. WAR OF THE WORLDS direct Timothy Hines comments, “I don’t, in any way, wish to potentially contribute to the pain and grief of those affected by this senseless act of terror.”
