The Weinstein Company has released the first trailer for their upcoming sci-fi animated adventure Escape From Planet Earth. The movie stars Brendan Fraser, Rob Corddry, Jessica Alba, James Gandolfini and Sarah Jessica Parker. Disney and Pixar have pretty much cornered the market on animated films, they know how to do it right, everything else just doesn’t seem to reach the bar that they’ve set.
Here’s the Synopsis:
The 3D animated family comedy catapults moviegoers to planet Baab where admired astronaut Scorch Supernova (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 (Corddry), head of mission control at BASA. When BASA’s no-nonsense chief Lena (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 (Gandolfini), it’s up to scrawny, risk-adverse 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 (Parker) and their adventure hungry son Kip.
The movie comes out on February 14th, 2013
