Director Steven Spielberg loved making War of the Worlds, because it gave him the opportunity to create evil aliens.

The man behind lovable 1982 cult classic ET swaps wide-eyed extra terrestrials for unearthly beings intent on destroying the planet in his adaptation of the HG WELLS novel.

He tells movie magazine EMPIRE, "I did have fun making mean-spirited aliens that only want to do harm. That was actually one of the biggest kicks I got making War of the Worlds."
