A new movie poster has been released for the upcoming sci-fi animated movie Battle for Terra. The new poster features an alien spaceship firing on the locals. Well hope you’re not cursing the alien spaceship because one of your grandchildren could be piloting it!
BATTLE FOR TERRA
Their World is mankind’s only hope for survival.
Indeed in Battle for Terra Manking is on the verge of extinction: the only hope is to take over the planet Terra which is already inhabited by an other sentient species…
Well survival of our grandchildren first! Let’s wipe out those Terrans! ;-P
Director Aristomenis Tsirbas made a hell of job. And the story of Battle for Terra wich looks remarkably well built: it does more than compensate for the CGI, which I must admit does not look as great in a Dreamworks or Pixar movie.
I’m thrilled by Battle for Terra! I strongly recommend you to go watch it! The movie Battle for Terra will hit theaters on May 1, 2009. :)
Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions have acquired U.S. rights to the sci-fi animated movie Terra. The movie, which seems to be retitled Battle for Terra, will be released on May 1.
Despite many awards the film took time to get a theatrical release: it’s probably because most distribution companies were too lazy to try to find an original way to market Battle for Terra. It’s an animated movie, but real issues are raised, and in Battle for Terra the world isn’t black or white: it’s a mix of both like in real life.
Plot – Synopsis: “Mala (Evan Rachel Wood) is a precocious girl living on the beautiful planet Terra, a place where peace and tolerance are celebrated. However, the last inhabitants of Earth have exhausted the resources of their planet and are now searching for a new home. This Earthforce has discovered that the use of a Terraformer will make Terra habitable for humans but poisonous for Terrians. When the Earthlings embark on a hostile invasion of Terra, Mala’s father, Roven (Dennis Quaid), is kidnapped. Hoping to save her father, Mala captures and hides a crashed human pilot named Jim (Luke Wilson). While Mala nurses Jim back to health, the two forge a friendship and a plan that could save both the human race and the planet of Terra.”
I hope that the movie Battle for Terra will get a wide release! :)
