H.G. WELLS’ THE WAR OF THE WORLDS DESCENDS ON
NEW ZEALAND, AUSTRALIA, JAPAN AND MORE

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. The critics who
have seen it thus far have given the Director’s Cut
much more positive reviews than the summer release
version. The original movie release is every moment
from the book, and will inevitably be a collector’s
item as the Director’s Cut will ultimately become the
only version available.”

The Director’s Cut is now available in Australia, New
Zealand, Hong Kong, Japan and South Africa in retail
outlets and on the Internet through
http://www.thewaroftheworldsmovie.net . The Director’s
Cut of H.G. WELLS’ THE WAR OF THE WORLDS will not be
available in the U.S., Canada and other select
countries until late October.

The original Summer release version of H.G. WELLS’ THE
WAR OF THE WORLDS is available in the U.S. and Canada
through UAV / Sterling Entertainment at retail stores
such as Sam’s Club, Walmart, Target, Rite Aid, CVS and
Fred Meyer, and on the internet at MoviesUnlimited.com ,
Target.com and Amazon.com .
