So what’s the deal with this film? They’ve had trouble getting it into theaters for the past 2-3 years which makes me a little apprehensive. It’s either a great movie that has had trouble finding a market or it’s a bad movie that someone has finally decided to take on, knowing that they’ll make back their expenditures in DVD sales. So let’s look at what this film has going for it.
The film has been screened at the Toronto Film Festival, the Tribeca Film Festival, Fantastic Fest, and many other festivals over the past two years, and has won three awards along the way including one for Best Feature and another for Beat Animated Feature. It was originally titled Terra but has now been named Battle for Terra. Perhaps that will help it sell? And if nothing else it has a really impressive cast with voices by Evan Rachel Wood, Brian Cox, Luke Wilson, David Cross, Justin Long, Amanda Peet, Dennis Quaid, Chris Evans and more.
Sounds pretty good until you hear that the writer also wrote The Nutty Professor. Scary.
