THEY SAY

While searching for his little brother in the woods, 12-year-old David Freeman (Joey Cramer) falls down a ravine and is knocked unconscious.

After what seems like minutes, he returns home, only to discover that eight years have passed since he was declared missing and presumed dead. Even more mystifying is that David hasn't aged, nor can he account for the time lapse. Meanwhile, NASA officials stumble upon a futuristic spacecraft and are determined to assess what David knows about it by locking him in a top-secret lab for scanning and testing.

His only chance of escape is in the spacecraft manned by Max, a wisecracking robot.

WE SAY

Yet another remake, this time of a 1986 Disney movie that didn’t even do particularly well at the box office. It only made $17 million back then, but went on to become a cult hit on VHS.

Today the movie is fondly remembered by those who saw it as kids back then.

Wild Hogs writer Brad Copeland is writing the screenplay and John Hyde who executive produced the original movie will do so again for this remake.

Disgruntled twenty- and thirtysomethingers across the Internet are already grumbling “they are raping my childhood” over this one, but the point is that this is a Disney kiddies movie and they simply aren’t the film’s intended audience. See the worry in Disney’s eyes . . .
