Today’s first screening: “Escape from Planet Earth”

The Weinstein Co., too poor to preview its movies for critics any more, has a pitiful record in animation. “Hoodwinked” was sort of a high water mark.

So why throw good money after bad letting critics see it?

“Escape from Planet Earth” has Sarah Jessica Parker and Brendan Fraser providing voices, and a director who has worked on (not as a director) some decent animated films in recent years.

So maybe this isn’t “Arthur and the Invisibles” or (shudder) “Doogal.” Then again, maybe it is.

We’ll see.
