STARRING Seth Green, Joan Cusack and Dan Fogler
DIRECTED BY Simon Wells

Apparently, men really are from Mars — and they have no qualms with abducting women from Earth. There’s a shortage of maternal love and care on the red planet, which leads the Martians to begin mom-napping. When Milo’s mum (Joan Cusack) is snatched, the kid (Seth Green) decides to travel all the way to outer space to get her back. The 3D, performance-capture animated caper was directed by Simon Wells, who previously helmed movies including The Prince of Egypt and An American Tail: Fievel Goes West.
