Abstract:

War of the worlds: The residents of a small town are excited when a flaming meteor lands in the hills. That is until they realize that the Martians have landed a direct assault to our planet, with hundreds of invulnerable ships. The invasion takes place all over the world, and all the major cities are destroyed one after one, even the atomic bomb can't stop them. But, if the human intervention can't beat them, who can?

When worlds collide: When scientists discover a distant planet is on a catastrophic collision course with Earth, the government refuses to believe the evidence. It's now up to private citizens to finance and build a spaceship to carry a limited number of people and animals to another planet to begin a new civilization. Massive tidal waves, earthquakes, the impending destruction of our world and deciding who gets to live or die brings out the best and worst in people.
