Steampunk Media: War of the Worlds remake



A quick visit to outstanding Clockworker website (and a tip of the hat to the good gentleman), provided this lead to the new animated remake of the War of the Worlds.  It does lean a bit more towards the Edwardian / Dieselpunk for fictional narrative, but as one commenter on the youtube.com post stated...

Let me break this apart

We have a zeppelin/aircraft carrier the size of a Star Destroyer
Starfighter vs Biplane dogfights
Giant Laser Tanks/Walkers
Martians got fancy new tripods (Now with moar tentacles!)
and Steampunk


The only way this movie can go wrong is if Teddy Roosevelt doesn't take down a martian tripod with his bare hands.  (comment from McLovin 2169)



I must concur!  I will be keeping an eye out for this work, but to learn more, please turn to: http://www.heavymetal.com/wotw/
