This flick has blockbuster written all over it and should open at Number One for its first weekend out. The 3-D effects are right on the money, the story line is funny, easy to follow and the film is child-friendly so the children will get off on it.
The story centers around Susan (Witherspoon) who gets struck by a crashing meteor from outer space on her wedding day. She has some kind of radiation type substance from the meteor that makes her grow to 49 feet, 11 inches. The military rounds her up and confines her to a top-secret military prison compound for strange monsters that the public wouldn’t be able to handle if they knew existed.
After all else fails, the President of the U.S. enlists the help of the monsters in the prison to defend earth from a takeover by a power hungry alien being who wants to destroy Earth.
Knowing; Summit Entertainment presents an Escape Artists Production in association with Mystery Clock Cinema. Starring Nicolas Cage, Rose Byrne and Chandler Canterbury. Directed by Alex Proyas. Story by Ryne Pearson. Screenplay by Ryne Pearson, Juliet Snowden and Stiles White.
This one may freak you out a bit because it could actually happen in real life. Young Caleb Koestler (Canterbury) draws an envelope from a time capsule that was put in the ground at his school 50 years earlier. It had a page that is filled with numbers. His dad, astrophysics professor John Koestler (Cage), becomes intrigued with the numbers and encodes them to discover that they predicted the dates, death tolls and co-ordinates of every major disaster of the past 50 years before they happened.
A series of events happen that draw the professor’s own family into danger according to the numbers. This one will pretty much keep you on the edge of your seat until the end.
