On one such visitation looking after the kids becomes a little more difficult when after a series of strange lighting storms hit his neighborhood Ray discovers that a fleet of death-ray robotic spaceships have emerged nearby part of the first wave of an all-out alien invasion of the Earth. Transporting his children from New York to Boston in an attempt to find safety at Mary Ann's parents' house Ray must learn to become the protector and provider he never was in marriage. Also starring Tim Robbins War of the Worlds was directed by Steven Spielberg who had been planning the project for years but set it aside until a wave of "alien invasion" films (led by Independence Day) had run its course.
