War of the Worlds: Behind the Scenes Exclusive



What’s scarier, the new summer blockbuster War of the Worlds, or seeing Tom Cruise freak out about Scientology on the Today Show ("Matt! Matt! You don’t understand!")? The answer: they’re both pretty flippin’ scary.

But how much do you really know about the Steven Spielberg/Tom Cruise vehicle? That’s where we, at the National Lampoon, come in. Hell, we’re a plethora of useless knowledge and facts. We’re also extreme, compulsive liars. Regardless, we thought that you—oh dear reader—should learn a little bit more about the new summer blockbuster, War of the Worlds!

I….uh…I did not know that.[link]

grab some popcorn and watch for a few minutes before the crash…

It’s official people: Tom Cruise is Nuts. Check out the inevitable website that was 2 months in the making…
