Jessica Alba, Sarah Jessica Parker join 'Escape from Planet Earth'

Jessica Alba and Sarah Jessica Parker are among an all-star cast joining the new animated film Escape from Planet Earth. In a release issued today, The Weinstein Company announced the actors who’ll lend their voices to the film include Alba, Parker, Brendan Fraser, James Gandolfini, Rob Corddry, and Craig Robinson. “We’re excited to have such a talented group of actors bringing this action-packed comedic tale to life,” said Donna Gigliotti, TWC’s President of Production.

This latest 3D adventure from Cal Brunker, director of Despicable Me, takes place on the fictional planet Baab. Heroic astronaut Scorch Supernova (Fraser) takes off to save a dangerous planet in peril, despite the warnings of his straitlaced brother Gary (Corddry). When Scorch is trapped by the villainous Shanker (Gandolfini), nerdy Gary is left to defend Baab on his own. Alba plays the Supernova brothers’ boss, and Parker plays Gary’s wife, Kira. Escape from Planet Earth is currently in production and will hit theaters next year.

'I Don't Know How She Does It' trailer: Are you ready for Carrie Bradshaw with kids?

It’s tough to hear a Sarah Jessica Parker voiceover and not immediately think, “Sex and the City? Where??” But SJP’s latest project isn’t a third big-screen Sex outing — it’s an adaptation of Allison Pearson’s best-selling novel, I Don’t Know How She Does It, which follows a woman who simultaneously manages a hedge fund and her two young children.

The movie looks like it’ll hit the same chick flick sweet spot as other “work vs. personal life” films like The Devil Wears Prada — and, as a bonus, it co-stars Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks, who should probably be in every movie. (Hopefully, though, she has more to do in the final cut than she does in this trailer.) I Don’t Know is set to be released this September. Check out the clip below the cut.

EW has confirmed that Sarah Jessica Parker has joined, and Halle Berry and Zac Efron are in talks to join, the sprawling ensemble cast of the 2011 romantic comedy New Year’s Eve, director Garry Marshall’s follow-up (though not a sequel) to this year’s Valentine’s Day. (The Hollywood Reporter first reported the casting.) Parker will play the mother of Abigail Breslin; Berry would play a caterer, and Efron a bike messenger. The movie, which will likely begin principal photography in February, also stars Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfieffer, Hilary Swank, Ashton Kutcher, Jessica Biel, Lea Michele, and Sofia Vergara.

Should there be a 'Sex and the City 3' movie?

I’d read Lisa’s funny and elegant pan, and she, of course, wasn’t alone: This is one of those cases in which the nation’s critics spoke more or less with one voice — and what they said amounted to a big collective snarky raspberry. If you believed the reviews, then the whole Sex and the City kingdom, in a word, was over. Embarrassingly past its prime. These ladies were stuck in the late ’90s, and maybe they should have stayed there. The movie was Abu Dhabi doo-doo!

So when I tell you that I actually liked Sex and the City 2, please do me two favors. One, don’t ridicule me mercilessly (“Anyone who thinks this is a good movie simply isn’t qualified to be a critic, blah blah blah…”). And two, don’t say that I liked it merely because everyone else didn’t — that I’m so transparent and that I just had to be different, had to be an attention-getting maverick. Disagree with me, if you will, but do accept that I honestly dug Sex and the City 2. READ FULL STORY
