H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds

Astronomer George Herbert (C. Thomas Howell) discovers that a meteor strike is actually the advent of a massive alien invasion. Cut off by the attack, George desperately tries to reach his family in Washington D.C. while spaceships with lethal death rays rain destruction upon humankind.
