Tomorrow, When the War Began

Based on the first of seven books by acclaimed Australian author, John Marsden, Tomorrow When The War Began is the story of seven teenagers who return from a week-long camping trip to find that Australia has been invaded by a foreign power. Banding together to fight gurellia-style agaist the enemy, this is not a typical heroic war movie – it is a terrifying situation where they must sometimes use little more than a knife or a belt to murder a soldier in cold blood. It’s a graphic tale of the violence, the blood, the fear, and the insanity of war. These kids are underdogs, they’re not going to win the war, they’re more likely to end up dead in a ditch than send the enemy retreating, but it’s their land, their parents and friends in prison camps. They give a damn and they’d rather die fighting than give up.

After Earth

One thousand years after cataclysmic events forced humanity’s escape from Earth, Nova Prime has become mankind’s new home. Legendary General Cypher Raige returns from an extended tour of duty to his estranged family, ready to be a father to his 13-year-old son, Kitai. When an asteroid storm damages Cypher and Kitai’s craft, they crash-land on a now unfamiliar and dangerous Earth. As his father lies dying in the cockpit, Kitai must trek across the hostile terrain to recover their rescue beacon. His whole life, Kitai has wanted nothing more than to be a soldier like his father. Today, he gets his chance.
