13 Movies Like Mars Attacks!

A swarm of Martian U.F.O.s is circling the Earth, and when President James Dale (Jack Nicholson) and Press Secretary Jerry Ross (Martin Short) learn about it, their reactions are all over the map. There are those, like Texan booze dealer Art Land (Jack Nicholson) and journalist Jason Stone (Michael J. Fox), who merely want to make a buck off it. Many others, such as Sarah Jessica Parker’s Nathalie Lake, Annette Bening’s Barbara Land, and the down-home Norris family, are thrilled, while others, such as Glenn Close’s Marsha and Natalie Portman’s Taffy, don’t give a damn. When it comes to intelligence, only his eccentric grandmother (Sylvia Sidney) has any regard for the brilliant young Richie Norris (Lukas Haas), while his older brother Billy (Jack Black) is celebrated for joining the military.

While General Decker (Rod Steiger) is apprehensive about the Martians, General Casey (Paul Winfield) is more upbeat about their prospects. Initially, the Martians appear to arrive peacefully before unleashing a barrage of devastating firepower and advanced weaponry on the human population and major infrastructure. They’ll soon be in Las Vegas, attacking the Norrises, Byron Williams (Jim Brown), an annoying lawyer, and Sir Tom Jones, all of whom are there for various reasons.
