Martian Child will be available on DVD February 12th from New Line Home Entertainment. The film stars John Cusack, Amanda Peet, and Joan Cusack. Comedy/drama. Rated PG.
FILM SYNOPSIS: A recently widowed science fiction writer forms an unlikely family with a close friend and a young boy he adopts who claims to be from Mars.
PREVIEW REVIEW: The concept and realization of that concept are charming. It’s about two disconnected souls connecting, and contains witty dialogue, nice performances by both the star and little Bobby Coleman, and a leisurely pacing by director Menno Meyjes, which allows us to sit back and view a grownup movie.
The DVD extras include:
Audio commentary with producers Corey Sienega and David Kirschner as well as writers Seth Bass and Jonathan Tolins
“Handle With Care: Working with The Martian Child” documentary
“The Real Martian Child” featurette
16x9 widescreen (2.35) version of the film
