Mars Needs Moms movie premiere There's life on Mars, and they want their mommies -- or more accurately, they want Earth mommies, like the one voiced by Joan Cusack in the new movie "Mars Needs Moms." And they're willing to steal 'em.

Seth Green, who voices Milo, a boy who comes to the rescue when his mom is abducted by aliens, stole onto the red carpet with wife, Clare Grant, in Hollywood on Sunday for the animated Disney flick's premiere.

Dan Fogler, Elisabeth Harnois, Tom Everett Scott and Seth Robert Dusky were among the cast members on hand at the El Capitan, along with brothers Raymond Ochoa, Robert Ochoa and Ryan Ochoa, who voice Martian hatchlings. Also spotted: actress Bella Thorne and singer Cody Simpson. Click the pics for more photos from the red carpet.

Berkeley Breathed of "Bloom County" comic strip fame, author of the book on which the movie is based, brought wife Jody, son Milo and daughter Sophie. Producer Robert Zemeckis made an appearance also, with wife Leslie. And at the after-party, director and screenwriter Simon Wells was caught smooching his co-screenwriter.

Fortunately, Wendy Wells is also the director's spouse.

"Mars Needs Moms" opens Friday.
