Even though my children are closer in age to men than boys these days, they are still in love with all things "Space". Paramount invited me and my crew to a sneak peek screening of a new film called Capture the Flag.
The movie is inspired by the 1960's space race and sees a ruthless billionaire bent on exploiting the source of Helium 3, the clean energy of the future. His plan involves rewriting history to excise the feats of the Apollo XI astronauts and the Moon landing. Enter headstrong 12-year-old surfer, Mike Goldwing, who along with his friends, a small lizard with delusions of Godzilla-like grandeur, and his grandfather, travels to the Moon to thwart evil. Jordi Gasull, a co-writer on The Last Explorer, is creator and co-scripter.
My boys, their friends and even some grown ups around here loved the film. With all of the horrible images on the news right now, a few hours at the theatre with some good, clean fun is a great idea. I would highly recommend taking your kids to see it. It is currently in theatres (It was released on December 4th and is rated PG)
Thanks Parmount for the awesome hookup!
