The alien is an intriguing addition to our TV viewing habits.
Alien Nation: Alien Nation premieres Wednesday, July 12 at 9 p.m.
ET/PT on Fox.
Alien Nations is a new series of five films by director Matt Singer, the writer behind The Matrix and The Abyss.
It centers on a group of aliens that travel to Earth and take over human society.
The film is based on the novels by Stephen King.
The aliens are portrayed by Michael B. Jordan, who previously played Captain Jack on the television series Lost.
Singer, who is also an actor, wrote the script and directed the first two films.
He said the series “sets a new standard for what aliens can do and how they interact with human beings.”
The first film was directed by Matt Singer and stars Michael B Jordan, Jason Sudeikis, Angela Bassett, Anthony Mackie, Laura Dern, and Jesse Williams.
The second film, Alien Nation, is a reboot of the series that stars Angela Basset, Anthony McFarland, Jason Lee, and Michael J. Fox.
Singer is returning as director.
Singer and his wife, actress and producer Rachel Geller, will produce the new film with Singer’s brother-in-law, producer, and director Dan Futterman.
In Alien Nation the aliens are “an amalgam of different cultures, races, and genders,” Singer wrote in a statement.
“They are a diverse group with a history that spans hundreds of years.
It’s been 100 years since aliens visited Earth and we can now finally celebrate our love for these creatures.”
Singer also directed the 2013 film The Abyss, which starred Angelina Jolie and Matthew McConaughey.
“In Alien Nation we’ve gone back to our roots, re-imagining our own history and telling the story of what happens when our civilization is overrun by an alien race,” Singer said.
“With Alien Nation there is no need for the same old formula.
This is our chance to explore our mythology and our human nature in a new and exciting way.”
Alien Nation was a hit on social media and in theaters.
It received more than 1 million Twitter likes, and it has been viewed more than 10 million times on Facebook, according to Nielsen Media Research.
It has been streamed more than 6 million times.
The series is based off a novel by Stephen Leacock and will premiere on Fox on Wednesday, June 17.
