War of the Worlds: During the special event, "A Conversation with Tom Cruise", at UCLA, actor Tom Cruise revealed a scenario in the upcoming Steven Spielberg directed War of the Worlds remake to the crowd...

Earlier in the day he says he was on the set of a remake of "War of the Worlds" with Steven Spielberg. He says he was doing an emotional scene as Justin Chatwin, an estranged father in the middle of a Martian invasion of Earth.

"As I was looking at a photograph I found of my son in the scene, Steven told me to think of the good times I had with my own son, and to get into the mood that way," Cruise explains. "Things like that really help."
