For first-time director Aristomenis Tsirbas, his cosmic parable "Battle for Terra" has been in the making since he was a kid. The concept for this 3-D sci-fi animated adventure, which hits theaters today, first struck Tsirbas in his youth after reading H.G. Wells' seminal book "War of the Worlds." He was bemused by the author's portrayal of the aliens, whose intentions for invading Earth were not explored in depth. " 'Battle for Terra' was me not buying that an entire race can be evil," he said.
