    Two of the most iconic science fiction epics from Paramount Pictures come together in one out-of-this-world double feature from producer George Pal. Making its 4K UHD debut, THE WAR OF THE WORLDS is an Oscar®-winning* adaptation of the chilling H.G. Wells novel. Then, get ready for impending disaster when a runaway star signals the destruction of Earth in WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE, included on Blu-ray™ remastered from the original film elements. Both are essential Technicolor masterpieces from the Golden Age of Hollywood, delivering eye-popping visual effects.
