Waiting for minimum critic reviews


The Robinson family is blasting off again, in an all-new version of the immortal SF classic starring Gary Oldman, William Hurt, Matt LeBlanc, Mimi Rogers and Heather Graham. The world they are fleeing has changed dramatically, and so has their deep space mission.

The Robinsons lift off from a dying Earth, sickened by pollution and overpopulation. They pilot a hyperdrive spaceship through quantum wormholes and across relativistic reefs in search of a new Eden, Alpha Primean unspoiled planet light-years away, where humankind will get its second and last chance. And they face enemies more awesome, more devious and more lethal than anything they ever faced before.
