Seen From Space: Planet 51
Thanksgiving? Pretty long lead time, especially given all of the scenes in the trailer. A couple of the shots here remind me of the Dubai development video we saw a couple months back, with all of the satellite shots and sacred geometry. "Planet 51" is obviously a nod to Area 51 of UFO lore (and, of course, 51=3x17). Interesting that they would depict aliens living an idyllic suburban existence as our own dissolves before our eyes. Maybe this Planet 51 is meant to somehow symbolize Dubai.
And guess who does the voice for the astronaut? Yes, you guessed it, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Hollywood's second-favorite Obama resonator (here's the first). Bonus Southland Tales resonance with Seann William Scott thrown in.
