The series developed a cult following and has been reprinted occasionally.

The film

In 1996, a movie of the same name based on the cards was released by Warner Bros., directed by Tim Burton. It can be described as a B-movie made with the budget of a blockbuster and stars such as Jack Nicholson, Glenn Close, Pierce Brosnan, Annette Bening, Natalie Portman, Michael J. Fox, Sarah Jessica Parker, Danny DeVito, and Jack Black. The film is visually impressive and is highly dependent upon special effects. The film's soundtrack by Danny Elfman makes extensive use of the theremin. The robots that are seen in this movie were the model for Robo-47, an old, renegade war robot, from the video game, War of the Monsters. The film was panned by critics when it was first released and recieved terrible reviews, but it has since acquired a small cult following and can often be seen on cable TV in North America.

The film is highly parodic, and contains numerous anachronistic references to 1950s-style science fiction films. Much of the tone of the film came from the trading card series. The exaggerated comic violence of the movie is only slightly more intense and garish than in the original cards. Therefore, as with other Burton movies, the subject under scrutiny is not just the present, but the mass culture of suburban childhood of the past.

The film has an interesting relationship with Independence Day, another "aliens attack" movie released a few months earlier by rival studio 20th Century Fox. While there are no direct references to the film in Mars Attacks!, certain scenes and events can be seen as parodies if not outright mocking. For example, where Independence Day has an extended sequence of epic and impressive destruction, Mars Attacks! has the aliens use Easter Island as a bowling alley, carve their own faces in Mount Rushmore, drop nuclear bombs on Las Vegas, tear Agra apart, destroy New York City, topple the Washington Monument in Washington, D.C., attack Paris and melt London. Since Mars Attacks! was almost complete at the time Independence Day was released, it's possible to conclude the similarities are purely coincidence or come from mutual use of cliché.

The plot is fairly simple but contains some interesting variations on the normal Martian invasion movie. The premise is that the Martians have turned up on Earth and the President of the United States (played by Jack Nicholson) seeks to gain maximum public relations points by establishing a friendly relationship (in a manner similar to that of Peter Sellers in Dr. Strangelove, Nicholson also plays another role in the movie, that of a Las Vegas real estate speculator). The Martians, however, reject these overtures and proceed to wreak havoc with their spectacular red and green death-ray guns. The Martians pursue fleeing humans with speakers blaring "Do not run. We are your friends."

As in the film The War of the Worlds, a simple weapon is ultimately found to counter the alien invaders: in this instance it is the playing of a piece of yodeling music, "Indian Love Call" performed by Slim Whitman. Some have criticized this as being far too similar to another parody of B-movies, Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, where the killer tomatoes were also caused to explode when exposed to a particularly bad song.
