Step into a world where a child holds the power to alter the future of all mankind as the magical family adventure, The Last Mimzy, arrives on rental DVD on the 6th August 2007, and retail DVD on the 20th August courtesy of Entertainment In Video. Released in the wake of its £1 million UK box office gross and based on the acclaimed short story Mimsy Were the Borogroves by Lewis Padgett, this enchanting film follows the adventures of two young children who are sent on a crucial mission that will change the future of all humanity.

The Last Mimzy features a brilliant ensemble cast that includes Academy Award®-winner Timothy Hutton (Ordinary People, The Good Shepherd), Joely Richardson (The Patriot, Nip/Tuck), Rainn Wilson (The Office, My Super Ex-Girlfriend), Michael Clarke Duncan (Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, The Green Mile) and talented newcomers Rhiannon Leigh Wryn (Hulk) and Chris O'Neil.

Directed by Bob Shaye (whose executive producer credits include Hairspray and The Lord of the Rings trilogy), the film is written by Academy Award®-winner Bruce Joel Rubin (Deep Impact, Ghost) and Toby Emmerich (Frequency).

As an average student with a gifted younger sister, 10-year-old Noah Wilder (Chris O'Neil) concludes, "life sucks." He and his parents (Timothy Hutton and Joely Richardson) have succumbed to the trappings of today's material world. Only his 5-year-old sister, Emma (Rhiannon Leigh Wryn), resists them.

Then one day Noah and Emma discover a mysterious box that contains some strange objects together with a beat-up stuffed rabbit that seems to whisper in Emma's ear, "Mimzy".

As the children play with these "toys", they begin to display higher and higher intelligence levels. Their teacher tells their parents that they seem to have grown beyond genius. Their parents, too, realise something extraordinary is happening.

Things begin to spin wildly out of control however when a blackout shuts down the city and the government traces the source of the power surge to the family's house - and in particular to the children's "toys". When a scientific scan on the bizarre objects reveals a technology more advanced than anything in existence, everyone realises that they are involved in something incredible. But exactly what?
