What does everyone think of the upcoming Race to Witch Mountain? I remember watching the original when I was a kid, so I'm really looking forward to seeing Disney's take on it. I'm loving the trailer - looks like a cool sci-fi action thriller so far!

I saw the extended trailer for this a couple of weeks ago. Looked a lot more interesting than I expected. I already have it penciled in as a go see when it is released...May? I think

A lot earlier actually, March 13th! :) The official website (http://disney.go.com/disneypictures/racetowitchmountain/) actually has a countdown to the race, if you're so inclined to keep track. I am (nerd alert, haha)

The movie's release is getting closer. Did you catch the Super Bowl spot from a few weeks ago?

You can check it out here (http://www.youtube.com/user/RacetoWitchMountain) AND you can enter to win a trip to Vegas where it was filmed. I don't know about you, but I love me the Vegasssss so I'm entering!

I'm looking forward to it too. For some reason, the Rock does no wrong for me when it comes to movies.

I remember enjoying Escape to Witch Mountain a lot. I also remember seeing a book in my library which was probably the basis for the movie. It preceded the mega blockbuster science fiction movies that would soon follow like Star Wars, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and E.T. but now that I think of it I prefer it over the last two.

Hmm this movie might be coming full circle then as it's kind of following in the footsteps of vfx-heavy sci-fi action movies (and the ones you mentioned were pretty family friendly too, now that I think about it). I thought the special fx in the clips that were shown were pretty impressive....with the "pimped out fridge" and all :D

Seak: yeah, I really like the Rock too. He's becoming quite an enjoyable presence on the big screen, with the Rundown, Get Smart, et al. :)

Wow!!! The trailer makes this look good. Now I liked both the earlier movies, but I think I will watch this one also. I, too like The Rock.

Yeah, I was definitely pleasantly surprised with the trailer. It just makes the movie look so cool and...now ;)

Well aside from the Rock, I think the cast of this movie is pretty solid all-around. Carla Gugino is in it and who doesn't love her? She's just so cool. I also remember the little girl, AnnaSophia Robb, from Bridge to Terabethia and she seems like a great child actress.

Here's more about the story and the cast:
