Stu­dio: Blue Sky Stu­dios Di­rec­tor: Chris Wedge Dis­trib­u­tor: 20th Cen­tury Fox Re­lease Date: May 24 Box Of­fice: $230 mil­lion [$107.5 mil­lion] Rot­ten Toma­toes Rat­ing: 64% Synop­sis: A teenage girl (Amanda Seyfried) finds her­self caught up in a bat­tle be­tween good and evil af­ter mov­ing in with her ec­cen­tric sci­en­tist fa­ther, shrink­ing down to the size of the minis­cule Leaf­men eco-war­riors and aid­ing them in their fight against the evil Bog­gans at the be­hest of their queen (Bey­oncé Knowles). The Odds: Loosely based on a book by Wil­liam Joyce ( Ro­bots), Fox spared no ex­pense with the voice tal­ent (Ja­son Sudeikis, Christoph Waltz, Josh Hutch­er­son, Colin Far­rell and more celebs star), nor on the lush CG-an­i­mated for­est worlds of the film. While crit­ics mar­veled at the scenery, some felt the eco theme seemed a bit fa­mil­iar.
