This week the Wardrobe Recommends…
Explore space through the eyes of two troublesome brothers in Zathura, directed by Jon Favreau. This spinoff of the widely popular movie, Jumanji, takes a completely different turn into uncharted places and into the unknown.
Danny (Jonah Bobo) is the younger brother who just wants attention from his older brother, Walter (Josh Hutcherson), but as most older brothers are, Walter wants nothing to do with Danny. Then there’s Lisa (Kristen Stewart), the older sister who shuts herself away from the family.
When their world is literally thrown into space by a magical board game, Walter and Danny must overcome a defective robot, heat-seeking Zorgons, and numerous explosions. With an ally astronaut and an exclusive older sister, Walter and Danny must fight off the Zorgons long enough to finish the game once and for all. On their journey they come across breath-taking views, terrifying creatures, and catastrophic battles by the powers of this magical game.
Being able to explore space is any young boy’s dream, but is too much for these brothers? When the game gets tough Walter and Danny are tested as brothers and whether or not they could stop fighting before things got worse. This movie is about the imagination, creativity, and dangers lurking in space as well as the brotherhood between very different brothers. Zathura takes the two dueling brothers and changes their lives forever.
