I don't always include a movie in this report simply on account of an LDS production designer... but this movie has a LOT of production design, and Bro. Blake also has a cameo in the film. Plus, the original Jules Verne novel that is the basis features two chapters entirely about the Church, Brigham Young, LDS missionaries, etc. I have not yet seen the movie, and so I don't know if these chapters have been included, but from everything I've read... they're not.
