Mars Attacks!" Not only did Tim Burton made Ed Wood, he also remade Plan 9 of sorts with this big-budget B 1996 dark comedy based on the bubble gum cards. The Martians are an unsavory lot who bleed green andwhose language consists of barks. Jack Nicholson, Glenn Close, Annette Bening and Pierce Brosnan are among the earthlings.
