Recording Jackie Chan in China

We’re currently in China and just finished recording the amazing Jackie Chan, who plays Mr. Feng, the little white mouse in The Nut Job 2. It was a whirlwind two-day trip, and we’re flying home in the morning. Looking forward to getting back to the studio!

Press Junket

Today was the Escape From Planet Earth press junket. We took over two floors of the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles, and over 40 news outlets came to interview the stars of Escape. The interviews were fast and furious, happening five at a time. The cast all did a fantastic job talking about the film. These interviews will be released in the next few days leading up to the release. The countdown is on!

Ricky Gervais in Escape!

Ricky Gervais

We’re incredibly excited to announce that Ricky Gervais has joined the cast of Escape From Planet Earth! Ricky plays a sarcastic, talking computer in mission control. As you can imagine, he is hilarious in the role.

We’re HUGE fans of Ricky. He is one of our comedy heroes and it’s fantastic to have him on board!
