[edit]

Synopsis: After Earth is destroyed by an alien race of pure energy, Humans become the scum of the universe until a young man discovers there may be hope for the species in a gift from his father.


Reaction: Good effects and action but the characterization is, to be honest, rather flat.


Personal Rating: 7/10

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • For a preview screening on 6 June 2000 in Atlanta, this movie was transmitted in digital form from the studio, across the Internet, to the digital projector at the theater. It never once touched film, and was the first major Hollywood film to be publicly previewed that way.
  • When the drifter ship is first shown, it's possible to see a [Star Wars] Death Star attached to it on the lower part of the screen.
  • Because Titan A.E. didn't do well at the box-office, 20th Century Fox closed its animation studios in Arizona after only two feature films, the other one was "Anastasia". Then Fox contacted Blue Sky studios to produce animated films using 3D computer graphics such as Ice Age or Robots.
  • The girl in the drifter colony who shows Cale a photo of her soccer-playing father is reading Robinson Crusoe, another story about being set adrift (though at sea instead of in outer space).
  • When the rebuilt ship in the drifter colony fail to launch Akima asks Cale if she should get out and push. Princess Leia asks the same question to Han Solo in Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back after the Falcon fails to go into lightspeed.
