PG | | Sci-Fi
An advance team from a dying, far-off civilization seeks a new world to conquer and inhabit -- Earth.
The film had to be re-titled twice. It originally was titled "War of the Aliens," which closely resembled the blockbuster Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977). The title was then changed to "Alien Encounter," which resembled the blockbuster Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977).
Early in the movie the alien leader reveals that he is keeping a fleet hidden behind the Moon. He then attacks the friendly alien base through subterfuge, which does not go particularly well. This is in spite of his fleet outnumbering them by many times, and that they could have just attacked the Earth directly.
