Has to be one of my all time favourite adaptions of WOTW, along with the album from the 70’s, in my opinion

I know its expired, but out of interest why is it War of the Worlds 4 ?
Worried I've missed 3 previous!
In my top 5 of Sc-Fi. Superb. This Island Earth is another great.

It originally said 4K in the title until one of the mods edited it, also they removed my ability to edit it , go figure. Oh well

Great film, this - bought it a couple of months ago. The 4K sides of things with this movie puzzles me, though. I have a 4K TV and a 4K Apple TV box. I have many, many 4K movies in my iTunes library and they all play perfectly. The weird thing about this movie is that although it has the 4K badge on the details page on my AppleTV, if I look at the pull-down info panel while watching the movie, the 4K badge is gone and it's just HD. Weird. Anyone else experience this?
Love this movie.

Have you tried in both the iTunes Movies app and the Apple TV app?

There was a general problem with this on loads of films, but it seems to have been mostly resolved over the last few days.

Yeah. Same on both. It's only ever been this movie that I've seen this happen.
I must be the only person who enjoyed the Tom cruise remake!

Does it show just HD or HD Dolby Vision?
Cracking film, ahead of it times for special effects.

I'm glad your question prompted to go back and check this. Using the AppleTV app, the info banner during playback shows HD and Dolby Vision icons. Interestingly, the pull down info panel during iTunes Movies playback shows 4K and Dolby Vision icons. Odd that they're different, but I'm pleased that one of them, at least, is correctly stating 4K, as that definitely wasn't the case a few months ago.

It’s a bit of a mess sometimes. There were two versions of Top Gun (depending on which app was used), when it converted to 4K. One was the old transfer and the other was the new DV transfer. I don’t know whether they stream from different servers or what, but it seems the apps aren’t always in sync.

Jeez! I'll need to keep an eye on that. Bought Top Gun recently, but haven't watched it yet, so will need to try both apps. Must confess that I don't often use the Apple TV app, as the UI works differently to everything else I'm used to.
Thank God we've now got The Space Force! (joke)

Great film. Forbidden Planet and Silent Running are a couple more in my top 5.

Could and should have been so much more. Had it's moments, I think it was the start of Speilberg losing his magic touch. Some parts really memorable. The petulant son and squealy daughter were the opposite - a pain in the rear.
Good parts, the emergence of the alien machine, the battle over the hill with the martians. The collapsing tripods when the cold virus kills them off. The rest ? Nah (I still bought the DVD at Poundland for a quid though !)

How does it fair in 4k btw?
I've seen some great hd ones of older films.

The trailer didn't impress. If the rest of the film/TV series was as tedious as the trailer.....

Haven’t watched it yet, just purchased this morning so will do soon.
according to some reviews the 4K version, from the disc reviews at least is meant to be good.

One Director praised it for being able to see the textures on the clothing crisply for the first time
