Think about the casting of Tom Cruise, the film’s location and time of release. Do you think the contemporary remake of War Of The Worlds would have been popular or successful without the events of 9/11? The American audience responded well to the film because it was based on 9/11. They reacted strongly because of how it was represented. Although, the critics didn’t respond as well to it due to them thinking it was cash in hand as they used such a big star like Tom Cruise. If 9/11 didn’t happen then I don’t think this film would have been as successful as it was. I think this because without the use of this background story it would of just been seen as another re-make with a well-known actor.

How do you feel about American Producers using 9/11 as a thematic device in film? Can it be justified? I feel that in this film the American producers didn’t have to use the theme of 9/11 in the storyline. The film could have still been a success without this being mentioned or used. The reason for me thinking this is because some of the American public could think that the producer doing this is disrespectful as it is a sensitive subject.
