WRITTEN BY Joe Stillman
DIRECTED BY Jorge Blanco

Hey, Justin Long, star of He’s Just Not That Into You and Drag Me to Hell, tell us about your new animated sci-fi comedy, Planet 51! ”It’s basically about a planet of aliens. They would be aliens to us, obviously not to themselves. Dwayne Johnson — is it Dwayne the Rock? Mr. Rock? — he voices the human from Earth who lands on the planet. I voice an alien — but, again, I hate using that word because I’m in no way alien to myself. They’re just a race of people on this planet, Planet 51, and a lot of the comedy comes from how alien they consider this human, who is obviously out of his element. It’s a fish-out-of-water tale — a human-out-of-Earth tale!” Thanks, Justin! We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
