Have you heard about the new film, Escape from Planet Earth? I’ve only seen the trailer but it looks really funny.
Here is the film’s 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).
I found the movie’s trailer. If you are reading this via e-mail you can see the trailer here, http://bit.ly/WgA5j5.
My apologies for the commercial in the video. I tired to find one without a commercials.
You can also learn more about the move on it’s official website, www.EscapeEarthMovie.com. There you can find videos, photos, character information, games and more.
In addition to the website there is also a FREE Escape from Planet Earth movie app, available for both iOs (http://bit.ly/EscapeFromPlanetEarthiTunesFS) and for Android (http://bit.ly/EscapefromPlanetEarthAndroidFS). I downloaded the app (iOs). There you’ll find the movie’s trailer, link to the Escape from Planet Earth game (free) and a fun ”photo bomb” section where you can snap a photo (or upoad one you have on your phone) and insert one of the characters into the photo with you.
Another nice feature of the app is the Escape from Planet Earth story book. Your child can either read the story themselves or have the app read it for them. It’s rather cute. I let it run automatically and listened to half the book already. It’s worth checking out, especially because it’s a free app.
You can also keep up to date on the movie on their film’s Facebook page.
