A laser gun was left behind in the California desert by aliens after they killed one of their own.

Sidney Preston (Tom Bosley) is dining at the Apache Acres Motel and Diner when he suffers a heart attack and, gasping for his last breath, tells fellow travelers at the diner that he has stolen $4 million. He gives them clues of four locations where he has stashed the money, and all who hear him take off in search of the money. As a promotion for the film, sponsors offered $1 million to the first person to correctly spot where the money is located. There were over 300,000 entrants, and 15-year-old Alesia Jones won the prize.
|The Polar Express 2004 G, 92' min.|

Director: Robert Zemeckis
Cast: Tom Hanks, Leslie Zemeckis, Eddie Deezen, Hayden McFarland, Peter Scolari, Michael Jeter, Steven Tyler, Phil Fondacaro, Debbie Lee Carrington, Ed Gale, Jimmy "Jax" Pinchak, Nona Gaye, Chris Coppola, Charles Fleischer, Isabella Peregrina
Late on Christmas Eve, Billy (Hayden McFarland) is lying in bed hoping to hear Santa's sleigh, which will relieve his doubts about Santa. Instead of the jingle of the sleigh, a magic train, driven by a kind conductor (Tom Hanks), appears, and Billy climbs aboard for a trip to the North Pole. Billy and the other kids on board arrive at Santa's workshop where Santa gives Billy a sleigh bell. The next morning, on Christmas Day, Billy wakes up at home and finds the sleigh bell under his Christmas tree. Animation in "The Polar Express" reflects the drawings in Chris Van Allsburg's 1986 Caldecott Medal winning book and uses motion capture (using a computer to develop a virtual 3-D image of the actor) to enhance the story. Visually stunning. The film received three Academy Award nominations.

They believe that Chanticleer's crowing will chase away the clouds and bring back the sun. When they do arrive in the city, the group discovers that because Chanticleer has become a rock star, it is almost impossible to get near him. Never fear, by story's end, Chanticleer is back on the farm, and happiness reigns.
