‘Invasion’ Trailer: Simon Kinberg Explores An Alien Invasion From Multiple Perspectives For Apple TV+

If you’re going to do an alien invasion show, especially on a streamer, then it’s necessary to tackle it from a fresh angle. That’s what Apple TV+ and creators Simon Kinberg (X-Men franchise) and David Weil (Hunters) are doing with Invasion, which examines the attack on humanity from the perspective of different characters played by Sam Neill, Golshifteh Farahani, Shamier Anderson, Firas Nassar, and Shiori Kutsuna.

As seen in the new trailer, Invasion will go across the globe to look at the alien invasion across different social classes and cultures. To me, it sounds a lot like the sci-fi version of World War Z. Appropriately, the series was shot everywhere including New York, Morocco, Japan, and more.

Here’s the synopsis: Earth is visited by an alien species that threatens humanity’s existence. Events unfold in real-time through the eyes of five ordinary people across the globe as they struggle to make sense of the chaos unraveling around them.

The first three episodes of Invasion hit Apple TV+ on October 22nd!
