In Columbia Pictures' heart-racing sci-fi adventure Zathura, two squabbling brothers are propelled into deepest, darkest space while playing a mysterious game they discovered in the basement of their old house. On their fantastic journey, they are joined by a stranded astronaut and must survive meteor showers, hostile lizard-like aliens, a rocket-propelled robot run amok and an intergalactic spaceship battle. Unless they finish the game and reach the planet Zathura, they could be trapped in outer space forever.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Zathura can be enjoyed solely as a sci-fi adventure. But it also sneaks in a couple of messages for those receptive to them.
Fresh: Zathura, Jon Favreau's adaptation of Chris Van Allsburg's kid-lit adventure of the same name, more than fills the bill -- though it's unlikely to draw anyone over the age of 11 (not counting baby-sitters).
Rotten: Zathura is basically Jumanji in outer space -- and even without Robin Williams, this is still a singularly loud, charmless and overbearing family movie that could use a hit or two of Ritalin.
Fresh: Zathura salutes the low-tech magic that lurks inside a board game -- that hidden ability to bring people together.
Just thought you'd like to know, Kristen Stewart's name is spelled wrong. It's "Stewart" not Stuart. But anyways, the movie is very cool, and it's a very fun action/comedy for the whole family. I'd recommend it.
THis movie is amazing and it is really fun to watch
Come on put Jumanji on too.
