With only one day until the release of Disney’s Race To Witch Mountain remake, the studios have released 6 exclusive clips, which we have for you to see. Race To Witch Mountain is directed by Andy Flickman and stars Dwayne Johnson, AnnaSophia Robb, Carla Gugino, Ciaran Hinds, Alexander Ludwig, Tom Everett Scott, Christopher Marquette and Cheech Marin and Garry Marshall.
Fans of the original should already be excited about the updated movie’s release, but now even more because these clips actually make the movie seem even more promising than before.
In this scene Jack Bruno (Dwayne Johnson) drops Dr. Alex Friedman (Carla Gugino) off at a sci-fi convention in Las Vegas where she is an expert on extra terrestrial life. Before she exits the cab she gives him her card in case he decides to check out her panel.
In this next clip, Dr. Donald Harlan (Gary Marshall) talks about how vicious aliens are to the alien children before explaining to them where the government might have taken their spaceship.
Here, Jack, Seth (Alexander Ludwig) and Sara (Annasophia Robb) narrowly escape the clutches of government officials while being chased in a casino.
Then Seth and Sara tell Jack that they do not want to involve him in their quest anymore as it could prove to endanger him, but Jack relents and goes inside the fridge anyways.
In this one Jack uselessly tells Sara to use her telepathy and explain to their four legged passenger that he does not want to make a bathroom stop.
And the final clip is one that’s in the trailer and we’ve all probably seen at this point. Jack is being chased by government vehicles while Seth blends through the taxi and uses his body as a human shield to take out one of the SUVs chasing them.
I wasn’t really a fan of the first movie. Somehow I never really cared for it in my childhood and never got back to becoming interested in it in my adulthood. However this remake actually looks really interesting. Don’t gag, but I have to admit that I am sort of charmed by “The Rock” or whatever his name is these days, and after watching these clips I would give this film a fair chance in a theater.
Of course if it turns out to be terrible I’ll totally destroy it cause I’m an equal opportunity critic. :-P
