In "Mars Needs Moms," nine-year-old Milo (Seth Green), who finds out just how much he needs his mom (Joan Cusack) when she's nabbed by Martians who plan to steal her mom-ness for their own young. Produced by the team behind "Monster House" and "The Polar Express," "Mars Needs Moms" showcases Milo's quest to save his mom—a wild adventure in 3D that involves stowing away on a spaceship, navigating an elaborate, multi-level planet and taking on the alien nation and their Supervisor (Mindy Sterling). With the help of a tech-savvy, gadget-happy, '80s-speaking underground earthman named Gribble (Dan Fogler) and a rebel Martian girl called Ki (Elisabeth Harnois), Milo just might find his way back to his mom—in more ways than one.

ImageMovers' "Mars Needs Moms" is directed by Simon Wells ("The Time Machine," "The Prince of Egypt") and also stars Kevin Cahoon as Wingnut and Tom Everett Scott as Dad.
