Space Chimps poster

As is now the standard, the summer season brings a new group of computer-animated creatures that, sadly, don't come from Pixar. Will SPACE CHIMPS be a breakout, or just another innocuous, moderately amusing but otherwise unremarkable entry to throw on the pile with OPEN SEASON, THE WILD, BEE MOVIE, OVER THE HEDGE, BARNYARD, etc.? I don't know, but it's certainly facing stiff competition at theaters, opening the same day as THE DARK KNIGHT...

Here's the official synopsis and the new poster for the flick, which features the voices of Andy Samberg, Cheryl Hines, Kenan Thompson, Stanley Tucci, Kristin Chenoweth and (naturally) Patrick Warburton.

SPACE CHIMPS is an intergalactic comedy that highlights the antics of astronaut chimps with the “wrong stuff." Ham III (Samberg), the slacker grandson of the first chimp blasted into space before manned spaceflight, joins two other astronaut chimps for a dangerous mission through a black hole to an inhabited planet. When they're stranded there, the chimps must help the inhabitants rid themselves of a tyrannical leader, and then figure out how to get back to Earth.
