From the planet Baab comes a group of rag-tag aliens in “Escape From Planet Earth.” The film follows brawny astronaut Scorch Supernova (Brendan Fraser), who travels to “The Dark Planet” (aka Earth) with his friends. But, when the mission goes awry, they’re all thrown in Area 51. With Baab’s national treasure detained, Scroch’s brainy brother embarks on a quest to save him.
Before “Escape” hits theaters, Moviefone has a sneak preview of the film’s characters, which you can see with four new posters below. (You can see the other posters over on Entertainment Weekly)
Starring Fraser, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jessica Alba, Rob Corddry, James Gandolfini “Escape From Planet Earth” makes contact with theaters February 14.
SCORCH SUPERNOVA (Brendan Fraser)
The most beloved hero of Planet Baab, Scorch is the act first, think never face of the BASA program. Doing good and fighting evil across the galaxy, Scorch still makes time to kiss the babies, pose for photos, and pitch for sugary breakfast cereal. Though protected by the genius of his brother Gary’s brilliant planning, Scorch considers himself to be a team of one.
KIRA SUPERMOM (Sarah Jessica Parker)
After fifteen years as a BASA test pilot, the brave and compassionate Kira Supernova settled down to raise Kip, her son, with Gary Supernova. Her calm courage and matter of fact intelligence make her an essential part of the Dark Planet mission when things start to go all crazy.
AGENT SHANKER (William Shatner)
The stern mastermind behind Area 51, Shanker is the military leader with a major pet peeve about aliens. A dark secret in his past haunts him every day as he carries out his ruthless plan to take alien technologies and exact his revenge.
DOC, IO AND THURMAN (Craig Robinson, Jane Lynch and George Lopez)
Though they look like a talking mouse, a giant cyclops, and a three-eyed slimy slug, Doc, Io, and Thurman are three of the most brilliant alien engineers stuck on Planet Earth. Between them, they have invented social networking, the internet, touch screen technology, cell phones, and more. Naively believing that Shanker will some day let them leave Area 51, these three toil away, inventing, designing and building new technology for their human master.
