Walt Disney Pictures 2009 Preview

17 December 2008 12:40 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Walt Disney Pictures is the latest studio to drop off some new images and information regarding their 2009 slate of films and fortunately for me they have supplied very little in way of pictures, which makes my job much easier, however for you it means you aren't going to get as many goodies such as no images from G-Force, nothing new for Up and not even a preview image for A Christmas Carol. From what I can tell the most exciting thing is a scruffy pic of Bruse Willis in Surrogates, but how about you be the judge? Over the next three pages are all 14 of Disney's upcoming flicks with cast, director, synopsis and picture gallery links where they apply. Remember, the links open in a new browser window so just close the new window to return to this article and continue the preview. Enjoy! Confessions Of A Shopaholic Feb. 13, 2009 Photo: »

Race To Witch Mountain Trailer

17 November 2008 11:09 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

His Rockness is back, and this time it’s alien. Yes, our favourite ex-wrestler, Dwayne Johnson, is starring in Disney’s kid-friendly sci-fi remake romp, and you can see the first trailer for Race To Witch Mountain here. The story sees Johnson play a Las Vegas cab driver who gets more than he bargained for when he picks up kids Tia (AnnaSophia Robb) and Tony (Alexander Ludwig) – and learns that they’re aliens. Enlisting the help of a UFO expert (Carla Gugino) he tries to get the pair back to their ship in Witch Mountain, only to run into an obstacle in the shape of Ciaran Hinds’ sneering bad guy Burke.  To complicate matters further, an interplanetary invasion threatens if the kids can’t get back to their ship, and an alien bounty hunter is also after the young pair. Thank goodness they’ve got El Rockerino on their side. »

More Sci-Fi - Disney's Race to Witch Mountain Trailer

17 November 2008 2:07 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Today is just chock full of sci-fi left and right, except this is the least exciting debut. In addition to the Star Trek trailer and Moon photos, we've also got the first full official trailer for Race to Witch Mountain staring Dwayne Johnson, AnnaSophia Robb, and Alexander Ludwig. This is a modern day remake of Disney's 1975 film Escape to Witch Mountain about a cab driver who is hired to protect two siblings with paranormal powers from the clutches of an organization that wants to use the kids for their nefarious plans. The one thing I'll say - this is definitely not what you'll be expecting. It looks like a big budget sci-fi remake, but doesn't actually look that good. It may be fun in the end, but that's about it. Take a look for yourself. Watch the first trailer for Race to Witch Mountain: [flv:http://media2.firstshowing.net/firstshowing/race-to-witch-mountain-trailer1.flv http://media2.firstshowing.net/firstshowing/race-to-witch-mountain-trailer1.jpg 598 254] You can also watch »
