New Space Chimps Trailer Launches
by Alex Billington
April 10, 2008
Yet another classic case of a non-Pixar animated movie looking unimpressive. This will play well with kids, I get that, but that's where it fails - it doesn't play well with everyone, no matter their age. Space Chimps is a new animated movie hitting theaters this summer being developed by a new company called Vanguard Animation. The story is about Ham, the grandson of the first chimp astronaut, who gets blasted off into space in order to rid a far-away planet of its nefarious leader. It may be worth your time to check out this trailer - at the least, you will appreciate Wall-E and Kung Fu Panda a lot more.
Watch the trailer for Space Chimps:
Space Chimps is directed and co-written by Kirk De Micco, who wrote Racing Stripes and Quest for Camelot and is making his directorial debut. Shrek producer John H. Williams and Enchanted producer Barry Sonnenfeld are both producing this film. Space Chimps will arrive in theaters on July 18th this summer.

Doesn't look funny at all. At least, not to me.

I have grown to the point where any computer animated movie NOT associated with PIXAR just upsets me.

ehh. Looks ok. A lot of contemporary-reference jokes, which a lot of non-Pixar movies seem to rely on these days.
Alfredo on Apr 11, 2008

If Your old enough to figure out how to comment on here this movie isnt intended for your enjoyment. My Nieces and nephews will think its hilarious, talking monkeys in space, come on kids think farting is the funniest thing in the world.

Actually looks pretty good, and I have to disagree about the audience age target: this movie looks like its intended for anyone looking for a fun movie to watch, regardless of their age group. Though I don't doubt that some of the jokes will go right over some of the kids' heads.

How cruel is it to send monkeys in space! With that said, unlike the editor of this page, this movie does look funny and I DO look forward to seeing this. Just for the shear pleasure of launching monkeys into space! 🙂
