6 December 2008, Saturday /
‘A.R.O.G.’In this follow-up to the 2004 sci-fi comedy "G.O.R.A.," Ceku (Özge Özberk), the extraterrestrial wife of Arif (Cem Yılmaz), is pregnant with the couple's first baby.

But doctors, after detecting in ultrasound screenings that the offspring is not a human being but an "alien," say this birth should never take place. However, Arif and Ceku want the baby, no matter what. So the day of the birth comes. Arif, seeing the creepy monster that his wife just delivered, starts screaming and … wakes up from this nightmare. But this is the start of a long journey back in time as Commander Logar (Yılmaz), who hates Arif, sends him 1 million years back in time, to an earth dominated by Stone Age creatures of all kinds -- early humans, dinosaurs and prehistoric birds.
