ESCAPE FROM PLANET EARTH



3.5 REELS

Not yet rated; likely PG. In theaters 2/14. Ok for kids 7+.

The long-delayed Weinstein Company animated film is finally hitting the big screen. The story centers on astronaut Scorch Supernova (voiced by Brendan Fraser), who finds himself caught in a trap when he responds to an SOS from a notoriously dangerous alien planet. Namely, ours. A master of daring rescues, Scorch pulls off astonishing feats with the quiet aid of his nerdy brother, Gary (Rob Corddry), head of mission control at BASA. Jessica Alba, Jane Lynch, James Gandolfini and Sarah Jessica Parker also lend their voices to this cute movie directed by Callan Brunker (a storyboard artist on Despicable Me, 9, and other family films).
