Spy Kids: All the Time in the World - Exclusive Character Guide
It's been eight years since Spy Kids 3-D, and despite that film's subheader, for Robert Rodriguez and co., it's definitely not Game Over. Sporting a sexy spy mom and two new stepchildren, the latest entry lifts off in full 4D 'Aroma-Scope.' To prime viewers for Spy Kids: All the Time in the World (courtesy of Dimension Films), here is a character guide including never-before-seen Spy Kids pics.
Spy Mom Marissa Wilson-Cortez (Jessica Alba) must come out of retirement at OSS to protect the free world against a villain who is literally stealing the world's time while juggling a newborn baby, two stepkids and a husband. Battling thugs while caring for a newborn brings new meaning to balancing work and family. The demands of motherhood hilariously conflict with keeping her spy identity secret from the family.
One half of the new spy kids duo, Rebecca (Rowan Blanchard) is a prankster whose favorite target is her step-mom. Rebecca must utilize her trickster ways to help save the world after learning her step-mom's true identity as an OSS spy.
The other half of the new spy kids duo, Cecil (Mason Cook) is the problem solver. He uses his love of puzzles and anagrams to solve the mystery of the Timekeeper, a super villain bent on stopping the world's time.
Marissa's husband Wilbur (Joel McHale) is the host of Spy Hunter, a new reality show that seeks to uncover the identities of the world's biggest spies. Little does he know he has an ex-spy for a wife.
Argonaut (voiced by Ricky Gervais) is the family dog. And he's also a sleeper robotic spy agent. Entrusted to silently watch over the family by former OSS agent & retired mom Marissa (Jessica Alba), Argonaut reveals his true colors as a talking super dog when danger arises. Warning, do not switch him to attack mode until you have a clear distance.
The most evil super villain in the Spy Kids series yet, the Timekeeper (Jeremy Piven) enacts a plan to steal all of the world's time. He's angry at the world for squandering time and he wants to take it back so he can go back in time to make better use of it.
Carmen & Juni
Carmen & Juni Cortez, the original spy kids, return to pass the mantle to Rebecca and Cecil. Actors Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara literally grew up on screen with the Spy Kids films.
A staple of the Spy Kids series are the gadgets that could only come from the mind of Robert Rodriguez. For the fourth installment, Rodriguez gave the kids some fantastical, yet always practical, spy gear. One of the cool gadgets are the "Hammer Hands" -- these gloves give Cecil super-strength, allowing him to punch a hole through the wall the size of a car.
