Space Chimps (2008) trailer

"Two NASA chimps are sent to a galaxy far, far away. One chimp has 'The Right Stuff,' and the other, a good natured goofball, has 'The Wrong Stuff.' The two chimps find themselves on a strange, uncharted planet, where they embark on a fantastical journey to save its inhabitants from a tyrannical leader."

Wow. This one actually looks like it might do well. The company, Vanguard, is a flop-maker (Valiant and Happily Never After), so we assumed this would help put them away. But the preview looks very solid. The only problem is, well, they get to space. Then what? Where's the story? Other than the coolness of the animation and space exploration, and the humor of Andy Samberg's jokes, what are they selling here?

Notice that the story in the description isn't even hinted on here. Chimps and aliens? Really? Is that going to work? Why didn't they mention the aliens in the trailer? Do they think that would turn people off? Maybe.

I don't think people are going to buy in and go see it without a story being marketed, but we'll see. =^)
