WAR OF THE WORLDS: GOLIATH

War of the Worlds: Goliath is a 2012 Malaysian animated science fiction action war film directed by Joe Pearson, produced by Tripod Group, and released on November 15, 2012 in Malaysia. The film notably reunites Highlander television series actors Adrian PaulPeter WingfieldElizabeth Gracen, and Jim Byrnes, and also includes fan favorites Beau Billingslea, Tony Eusoff, Adam BaldwinMark Sheppard, and others. Unlike other War of the Worlds films, this film is a loose sequel to H. G. Wells' novel The War of the Worlds.

The film released on DVD, 3D Blu-Ray, digital, and select theaters in the United States on April 1, 2014.

Prior to the film's American release, Adam teamed up with Tripod and Retro Rocket Press (an imprint of KHP Publishers, Inc.) to pen an official novelization of the film. The novelization featured many scenes deleted from the film's final cut, including an ambitious opening scene depicting Russian Cossacks facing Martian invaders during the original invasion.

 

While promoting the novel, Adam met with the film's stars Peter Wingfield  and Adrian Paul at fan conventions. At FriendshipCon in June 2014, Adam and Peter Wingfield performed a live reading of one of the novel's chapters, with Peter reprising his role as Captain Eric Wells. 

The novel was a bestseller for Retro Rocket Press, topping their sales charts until the publishing house's closing in 2015 and the novel was taken out of print. The novelization is one of Adam's most requested titles to date.

In July 2018, Latchkey Press partnered with Tripod Entertainment to bring the novel back to publication with a never-before-released paperback edition to coincide with Mars' closest approach to Earth in fifteen years!

The novelization was a finalist in the Best Adapted Novel - General and Speculative  category of the 2015 Scribe Awards, hosted by the International Association of Media Tie-In Writers.

THE FILM

A retro-futuristic epic of steampunk battle set in 1914. It has been 15 years since the original H.G. Wells Martian invasion. Fearing another attack, the human race has prepared itself. This is the story of the battle tripod 'Goliath' and its young crew. 'Goliath' is the vanguard of an army of steam-powered battle walkers, heat-ray biplanes, and armored zeppelins facing a Martian fleet of giant fighting machines and flying wings. Within the cockpit of 'Goliath,' courage under fire, conflicted loyalties and the struggle to save earth, in this new War of the Worlds.
