The War of the Worlds by H.G. WellsWith H.G. Wells’ other novels, The War of the Worlds was one of the first and greatest works of science fiction ever to be written. Even long before man had learned to fly, H.G. Wells wrote this story of the Martian attack on England. These unearthly creatures arrive in huge cylinders, from which they escape as soon as the metal is cool. The first falls near Woking and is regarded as a curiosity rather than a danger until the Martians climb out of it and kill many of the gaping crowd with a Heat-Ray. These unearthly creatures have heads four feet in diameter and colossal round bodies, and by manipulating two terrifying machines – the Handling Machine and the Fighting Machine – they are as versatile as humans and at the same time insuperable. They cause boundless destruction. The inhabitants of the Earth are powerless against them, and it looks as if the end of the World has come. But there is one factor which the Martians, in spite of their superior intelligence, have not reckoned on. It is this which brings about a miraculous conclusion to this famous work of the imagination.

We're not entirely sure that this qualifies as news, but just in case there is anyone at the back who didn't see it coming, here it is. And in other news, it was alleged yesterday that the Pope is, in fact, Catholic. Who'd'a thunk it? In fact, it's the biggest-ever opening day gross for both the studio behind the film, Paramount, and for star Tom Cruise. It's also the seventh biggest Wednesday gross in history, surpassed only by sequels and the box-office oddity that is The Passion of the Christ. The question, as we go into the weekend, is how the film will stand up. Generally, films that have a big mid-week opening just about manage to match their opening day gross on their first Saturday, but otherwise can only expect to steadily decline from there, until they're left making 50p on one screen somewhere in Kansas.
