Seriously, just watch it—it's VERY intense. Advertisement Now that's a great build-up, and dear me did that escalate quickly. Here's the basic premise: "Aliens have invaded Earth by using our most unlikely resource to achieve world domination—our children. As the kids unwittingly help these unseen enemies, the clock counts down in this suspenseful race to save humanity." And if you're wondering why this looks so good, it's because it was directed by Mark Romanek. Looks good, looks really good. Fingers crossed it stays that way.
