Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 07/12/1985
"...Dazzling airborne special effects and a poster-perfect leading boy....Charmingly odd..."
Variety - 07/10/1985
"...One of the weirdest and most endearingly offbeat alien pictures to have surfaced in recent years....[The] special effects work is highly accomplished..."
Los Angeles Times - 07/12/1985
"...It glides by gracefully on the charm of its three young heroes and their vividly envisioned adventure in space. It's also a truly gentle film..."

Product Description:

This adventurous space tale stars Ethan Hawke (in his film debut at the age of 14) and young star River Phoenix as misfit best friends whose dreams of space travel become a reality when they create an interplanetary spacecraft in their homemade laboratory. Ben Crandall (Hawke) is a young visionary who dreams of space travel while watching late-night B monster movies, pouring over comic books, and playing Galaga in the confines of his bedroom. But one night he has a vivid dream of flying over a space-like circuit board and shares his visions with his best friend Wolfgang (Phoenix), a young scientific genius who is able to translate his dreams into a complex computer program that actually works. With the help of their new friend (Jason Presson), they create a homemade spacecraft and embark on a secret adventure to another galaxy where they find that things are not always as different as they seem. EXPLORERS features highly imaginative special effects and entertaining space creations from George Lucas' Industrial Light and Magic.

Product Description:

The visionary dreams of three curious and adventuresome young boys become an exciting reality in Explorers, the action-fantasy from acclaimed director Joe Dante (Gremlins), who combines keen humor, warmth and fantasy with unexpected twists. In their makeshift laboratory, the boys use an amazing discovery and their ingenuity to build their own spaceship and launch themselves on a fantastic interplanetary journey. A galaxy of adventure for the whole family, starring young River Phoenix (Stand By Me) and Ethan Hawke (Gattaca). Includes 2 deleted scenes!
