  • Mars Attacks!

    1996. USA. Directed by Tim Burton. Screenplay by Jonathan Gems, based on the Topps! trading-card series. With Jack Nicholson, Glenn Close, Annette Benning, Pierce Brosnan, Danny DeVito, Martin Short, Sarah Jessica Parker, Natalie Portman, Michael J. Fox. Aliens (of the green, bulbous-brained, bug-eyed variety) come to Earth, and they do not come in peace. Burton’s hilarious homage to—and parody of—1950s sci-fi B-movies features an ensemble of A-list actors who gamely inhabit outrageous characters in a series of vignettes that build to an apocalyptic climax. 106 min.
