1st trailer for Spielberg's alien invasion series Falling Skies

It been almost a year since we first heard of Steven Spielberg's TV series Falling Skies, and up until now, we've had little to go by save for a prequel comic and a few random pics. Now it's finally time to get a look at the post-apocalyptic action.

But before you do, check out the official synopsis to remind yourself what the series is all about:

Falling Skies is an exciting new series from DreamWorks Television and executive producer Steven Spielberg. Noah Wyle (ER, TNT's The Librarian movies) stars as a former college professor who becomes the leader of a group of soldiers and civilians struggling against an occupying alien force. Moon Bloodgood (Terminator Salvation) co-stars as Anne Glass, a therapist who works with the surviving children to help them cope with the traumatic situation. The series also stars Drew Roy (Lincoln Heights) as Hal and Maxim Knight (Brothers & Sisters) as Matt, Tom's two sons; and Seychelle Gabriel (Weeds) as Lourdes, an orphaned teenager who helps run the group's commissary. Will Patton (Armageddon, TNT's Into the West) will play a recurring role as a fierce resistance fighter.
