Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 12/20/1996
"...[A] giddily satiric epic....Escalates into full Burtonian madness..." -- Rating: B+
Variety - 12/02/1996
"...[A] continually inventive, parodistic sendup of alien invasion movies....The technically brilliant picture possesses a quirkily, somewhat facetious insider tone..."
USA Today - 06/28/2005
"[A] visually witty, Tim Burton's apparent takeoff on 1956's EARTH VS. THE FLYING SAUCERS stars everyone from Jack Nicholson to Tom Jones to Jim Brown."

Plot Synopsis:

Tim Burton's MARS ATTACKS! is an all-star, high-tech (and subversive) spoof of those science-fiction films of the 1950s, such as THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL and THE WAR OF THE WORLDS.

Production Notes:

  • Theatrical release: December 13, 1996.
  • The film was inspired by now-rare Topps trading cards, originally sold in the early 1960s.
  • Tim Burton's wife, actress Lisa Marie, is the voice of, and the model for, the main animated Martian girl. Lisa Marie's likeness also appeared in THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS (1993) as Sally, the mad scientist's ghoulish but sexy creation.
  • Sarah Jessica Parker, who plays Nathalie Lake, appeared in Burton's previous film ED WOOD, as schlock sci-fi movie director Ed Wood's girlfriend Dolores.
  • Additional cast: Brandon Hammond (Neville); Janice Rivera (Cindy) and Timi Prulhiere (Tour Guide).
  • Additional credits: Mark S. Miller (associate producer); James Mitchell and David Andrews (visual effects supervisors).
