Brave New Jersey: Watch the Trailer for This Comedy About the “War of the Worlds”

Brave New Jersey

You know this story.

In 1938, someone decided to read an adaptation of H.G. Wells’ sci-fi novel, War of the Worlds, on the radio — and some people actually believed that Planet Earth was being invaded by aliens.

Hilarious, right?

Maybe that’s why there’s now a comedy about it. Introducing, Brave New Jersey, starring Tony Hale, Heather Burns, Anna Camp, Sam Jaeger, Raymond J. Barry.

A small town on the night of Orson Welles’s legendary 1938 “War of the Worlds” radio hoax is fooled into believing aliens are invading America. As they face what they think is their last night alive, hilarious & life-changing events unfold.

Brave New Jersey will be in theaters on August 8, 2017.
