Planet 51

Release date: November 20
Stars: Dwayne Johnson, Justin Long, Jessica Biel Seann William Scott, Gary Oldman, John Cleese
SheKnows movie fact: SheKnows caught a first look of Planet 51 at Comic Con 2009 and came away astoundingly impressed.
What it's about: A twist on the aliens invading story where the visitors are earthlings and the celestial body being visited by a previously unseen is not Earth, it is Planet 51.

Long is one of the aliens and Johnson, The Rock – whatever he's calling himself these days -- is the earthly visitor. The comedy in Planet 51 arises out the delightful comic field day that arises from the title of alien and who the title is given to depending on where you reside.

SheKnows first look:
