The weirdest thing about this trailer for Escape From Planet Earth had to have been the product placement. For one, one of the scenes revolves around Gary (the alien guy played by Rob Corddry (!)) getting a brain freeze from a name-brand Slurpee at a 7-Eleven. Also I think his brother Scorch Supernova (Brendan Fraser (lol whut?)) is shot by something that suspiciously looks and shoots like a NERF gun.
Product placement aside, maybe there’s some kind of cuteness potential in EFPE. The story revolves a nerdy younger brother who wants to save his older brother, who’s been kidnapped by the US government, with the help of his weird pals. That premise sort of sounds like Monsters vs. Aliens though. Since I got some enjoyment out of that, maybe the same could happen here. Guess we’ll find out when Escape From Planet Earth releases February 14th next year.
