In the children's science fiction movie Zathura, two squabbling brothers are propelled into space while playing a game they discover in the basement of their house. Yes, it's Jumanji sequel time.

On their journey, they are joined by a stranded astronaut and must survive meteor showers, lizard-like aliens, a rocket-propelled robot run amok and a starship battle. Unless they finish the game and reach the planet Zathura, they are doomed to be trapped in outer space forever.

Zathura is based on the novel by the children's writer Chris Van Allsburg (The Polar Express, Jumanji). The movie stars Tim Robbins, Josh Hutcherson, Jonah Bobo, and Dax Shepard. The film is directed by Jon Favreau (Elf) and produced by Bill Teitler and Michael DeLuca.
