Animation Wednesday: Second Full Length Planet 51 Trailer
Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs opens today and that means all the other studios (mainly Sony Pictures) are putting out there new trailers for their upcoming animated movies. First up we have the second full length trailer for Planet 51 on Yahoo. Featuring the voice talents of Dwayne Johnson, Seann William Scott, Jessica Biel, Justin Long, Gary Oldman, and John Cleese. The story is a complete spin on the normal sci-fi tale in that an astronaut lands on a planet and discovers a new civilization, except to them, he is the alien. This looks quirky and fun, like any other animated movie. Nice touch with The Killer's "Spaceman", too.
