BBC has released the trailer for War of the Worlds, its three-part adaptation of H.G. Wells’ classic novel.

The trailer previews what’s to come, including the iconic alien invasion that occurs in the usually placid British countryside. However, unlike other adaptations, BBC’s edition is set in Edwardian England—a few years later than its source material.

Rafe Spall, Eleanor Tomlinson, Rupert Graves and Robert Carlyle all star as earthlings who get caught up in the mix. Craig Viveiros directs the miniseries, which will broadcast on BBC One this fall. A premiere date is yet to be announced.
