Hot Trailer: ‘Escape From Planet Earth’


The Weinstein Company has posted the first trailer for the animated space alien adventure Escape From Planet Earth. The project has been the subject of prickly back-and-forth litigation between TWC and the original filmmakers, producer Brian Inerfeld and director Tony Leech who departed the project in 2010. Credits now list Despicable Me storyboard artist Cal Brunker as the director, with writing credits going to Bob Barlen & Brunker, based on a story by Leech & Cory Edwards. Brendan Fraser, Jessica Alba, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jane Lynch, Paul Reubens and Rob Corddry provide voices. It’s scheduled to open February 14, 2013.
