ENTERTAINMENT – Here Comes “Invasion” a New Sci-fi Series on Apple TV Plus on October 22, 2021

Apple’s latest sci-fi epic comes from the people behind The Martian and Deadpool

Apple has released the official trailer for its ambitious new sci-fi series, Invasion, starring Jurassic Park‘s Sam Neill. Hold on to your humanity. Invasion launches on October 22, only on Apple TV+. It is an alien invasion through different perspectives around the world.

The series is comprised of a three-episode premiere. Invasion comes from the minds of X-Men and Deadpool producer Simon Kinberg, as well as The Twilight Zone‘s, David Weil. The series follows the events of an alien invasion through the lens of several characters spread across multiple continents.

Apple is doubling down on the whole large-scale science fiction thing. After creating a reasonable amount of buzz around Foundation, the long-awaited Isaac Asimov adaptation in which Lee Pace plays a very tall galactic emperor named Brother Day, the world’s most successful cell phone maker is staying in the sci-fi section. Invasion, the company’s next foray into the worlds beyond cosmos, is bringing alien beings and Spielbergian closeups back home. Set on Earth and across multiple contents, ‌the series follows different perspectives from people around the globe as they deal with a particularly threatening and explosive alien, um, invasion.

Apple TV Plus is slowly racking up a stash of sci-fi TV shows, from Jason Momoa-starring See to Steven Spielberg-produced anthology Amazing Stories. Thus the next Apple TV adventure is Invasion. Joining Neill is an expansive ensemble, including Shamier Anderson (as Goliath, you’ll remember him from Netflix’s Stowaway), Golshifteh Farahani (Gen: Lock), Firas Nassar (Sirens), Shioli Kutsuna (Deadpool 2), and more. Invasion follows a wide variety of people from around the world dealing with an otherworldly presence. The moody drama, as well as the alien mystery, are strong.

“So in the case of the X-Men movies that I spent a lot of my life working on, the mutants were a metaphor for any persecuted or oppressed people,” Kinberg said. “And in the case of Invasion, it’s really about two things for me, metaphorically. One is the fact that we’re all aliens, that there is a sense of alienation that I think all people carry with them in some form, whether they’re alienated from their families, alienated from their communities, alienated from their jobs, there is a sense of disconnect. And I think I was really trying to find storylines in our show that would explore that feeling of alienation and really sort of explode it under the intensity of the magnifying glass of an actual alien invasion.”

Nevertheless, Neill’s participation is always exciting, especially after all those fantastic Instagram videos where he plays with ducks.

The series comes from David Weil (Hunters) and Simon Kinberg, who most probably know from his run on the X-Men movies, which started pretty good and ended pretty badly. Still, it takes a real mensch to own up to a disaster like Dark Phoenix. After the film’s release, he told KCRW, “It clearly is a movie that didn’t connect with audiences that didn’t see it, it didn’t connect enough with audiences that did see it. So that’s on me.” Nevertheless, he’s got bona fides, including work on the Deadpool movies and 2015’s best comedy The Martian.

So if doing another Jurassic World means he can continue playing with those little guys, we support the film’s release.

Invasion sees Sam Neill’s return to the world of science fiction action movies ahead of Jurassic World: Dominion, a film much like that third Fantastic Beasts is legally obligated to come out. Nevertheless, Neill’s participation is always exciting, especially after all those fantastic Instagram videos where he plays with ducks. So if doing another Jurassic World means he can continue playing with those little guys, we support the film’s release.

The first of Invasion’s 10 episodes will drop on AppleTV+ on October 22.
