Twentieth Century Fox are teaming up with The Children’s Society and ebay.co.uk to launch an exclusive Attic Amnesty Auction to raise money for The Children’s Society, the UK’s leading childhood charity, to coincide with the release of Twentieth Century Fox’s new movie Aliens in the Attic, in cinemas this August.

The 10 day auction is set to take place from 6 – 16 August and will involve celebrities across the UK and the US donating items from their attic; names of which will be released shortly. The items will then be auctioned on ebay.co.uk to raise money for The Children’s Society.

ALIENS IN THE ATTIC is a family adventure comedy starring Ashley Tisdale (High School Musical) and Robert Hoffman (Step Up 2: The Streets). When the Pearsons go on holiday, little do they know that their holiday home is soon to be invaded by knee high aliens on a mission to destroy the Earth!

The film starts with the Pearson’s arriving for their summer holiday at a three-story holiday house in the middle of nowhere. Stuart Pearson (Kevin Nealon) and his wife Nina (Gillian Vigman) head a family that includes adorable seven-year-old, Hannah (Ashley Boettcher); 15-year-old Tom (Carter Jenkins), a techno-geek whose grades have gone south; and big sister Bethany (Ashley Tisdale), who’s just returned from a secret outing with boyfriend Ricky Dillman (Robert Hoffman).

Tom takes charge when the kids come to realise that the mind control device that the aliens have implanted in Ricky only works on grownups, giving them a fighting chance against the invaders. But with that comes the extra responsibility to protect the adults by keeping the aliens’ existence a secret.

As the battle continues, the laughs, action and danger escalate. But the kids rise to the occasion, finding new strengths and self-sufficiency. It soon becomes clear that the aliens never stood a chance….

ALIENS IN THE ATTIC will be released in the UK and Ireland on Wednesday 12 August 2009
