"Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World" is hitting movie theaters in less than a month, and we can’t wait to see spy mom Marissa (played by Jessica Alba) join forces with her step-kids, Rebecca and Cecil, to battle to evil Timekeeper (Jeremy Piven).
Another thing that’s exciting about this film is the brand new Aromascope technology that will let the audience experience the movie through the sense of smell.
