Jurassic Park legend Sam Neill is facing an extraterrestrial invasion in the first trailer for his upcoming Apple TV+ series.

Consisting of 10 episodes, the sci-fi epic – appropriately titled Invasion – is written and produced by The Martian and X-Men's Simon Kinberg, as well as Hunters' David Weil.

Deadpool 2's Shioli Kutsuna, Awake actor Shamier Anderson, Extraction's Golshifteh Farahani and Fauda's Firas Nassar appear in supporting roles.

As for what's in store for Apple TV+ subscribers, Invasion captures the arrival of aliens via various perspectives around the world.

Judging by the footage shown in the trailer, our on-screen heroes will be faced with an enemy on a similar scale to Godzilla and Cloverfield's tentacled monster.

Jakob Verbruggen, whose credits include The Fall and The Alienist, will direct multiple episodes.

Just last year, Neill revealed why his Jurassic character Dr Alan Grant was tempted back into the fold for Jurassic World: Dominion.

"I can't give anything away, but a real-life dinosaur is a compelling thing to someone who has devoted his life to them," he teased.

"There will be screaming. We know this."

Invasion premieres on Apple TV+ with its first three episodes on October 22, followed by new episodes every Friday.
