Family movie night happens on Friday evenings in our home and it is a special time for our family. It is the time we forget about our electronics, eat snacks, laugh and cuddle while watching a family-friendly film. Though we don’t hit the theaters often (Zoe still doesn’t like to sit still for 2 hours) bringing past theater films into our home is a time for us to enjoy family time. However, I honestly believe we will be hitting the theaters on February 14th to see the release of Escape From Planet Earth, a film by The Weinstein Company.
Escape From Planet Earth Synopsis:
The 3D animated family comedy catapults moviegoers to planet Baab where admired astronaut Scorch Supernova (Brendan Fraser) is a national hero to the blue alien population. A master of daring rescues, Scorch pulls off astonishing feats with the quiet aid of his nerdy, by-the-rules brother, Gary (Rob Corddry), head of mission control at BASA. When BASA’s no-nonsense chief Lena (Jessica Alba) informs the brothers of an SOS from a notoriously dangerous planet, Scorch rejects Gary’s warnings and bounds off for yet another exciting mission. But when Scorch finds himself caught in a fiendish trap set by the evil Shanker (William Shatner) it’s up to scrawny, risk-averse Gary to do the real rescuing. As the interplanetary stakes rise to new heights, Gary is left to save his brother, his planet, his beloved wife Kira (Sarah Jessica Parker) and their adventure-hungry son Kip (Jonathan Morgan Heit)
Just take a look at the movie trailer!
Are these little blue aliens not the cutest little guys? I was showing the kids the trailer last night along with the characters and Gavyn and Zoe are just thrilled. Gavyn relates to 9 year old Kip; Gary’s brother who never ever gives up. Zoe on the other hand was mesmerized by Doc, IO and Thurman, the brilliant alien engineers of the film. Plus, the music had them dancing uncontrollably.
Escape From Planet Earth looks like an adorable family film everyone is sure to enjoy when it hits theaters on February 14, 2013. To learn more about the film visit www.escapeearthmovie.com and also download the free “Escape From Planet Earth” Movie App that is available for iOS and for Android.
