Plot Outline:

Two squabbling brothers and their indifferent sister find themselves hurled into space after starting an old, mechanical game called Zathura.

The effects are real enough to imply danger, but logic is not a function of children's games, so it does not matter that oxygen, gravity and warmth still exist in the house, even as it is blasted apart by va...
