While Pixar are a no-show, DreamWorks are going to have a big year in 2014. The studio will release three films: Mr. Peabody & Sherman, How to Train Your Dragon 2, and then Home. Jennifer Lopez and Steve Martin have joined the latter, alongside leads Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory) and Rihanna.
Home (formerly titled Happy Smekday!, based on Adam Rex's book The True Meaning of Smekday) tells the story of an alien race that plan to invade Earth to make it into a new home for them. One young girl (Rihanna) escapes capture by the alien race (called Boovs) and joins up with a banished Boov (Parsons). Lopez will play Rihanna's mum, and Martin will voice a Boov captain called Smerk.
While the title's horribly generic, and I'm not a fan of singers starring in films, Home does sound rather fun.
Tim Johnson (Antz, Over the Hedge) will direct. Home hits cinemas on 26th November, 2014 in the US, and 5th December in the UK.
