I love movies about aliens.  There is usually adventure and intrigue and very often some great explosions.  But these films also help us to confront the questions about what it means to be human and what exactly it is that sets us apart.  Is there something about us that makes us worth saving?  Those are important questions.  Plus alien movies are just plain fun.  Now you can catch one of the newest and best recent alien movies in high definition today!

Starting this August 4th, now available on Blu-ray Disc from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment comes the remake of a cherished movie that is sure to delight and excite all those who watch it.  Race To Witch Mountain – Blu-ray Disc is ready to come swooping out of your television screen and invade your living room with this exciting children’s movie that the whole family is sure to enjoy.  Bring home this fantastic movie today!

Jack Bruno is a Las Vegas cab driver on the run from a past of crime and struggling mightily to go legit.  Now there are two kids in his taxicab and there are willing to pay large amounts of money to be driven to the middle of nowhere in the desert.  The only problem is that they aren’t kids, they’re aliens who are on a desperate mission to try and save this planet from their own kind.  The government and their own alien military are both after them, making things especially dangerous for Jack Bruno.  With the UFO Convention in town, will he be able to get enough help to get this all figured out and save his planet?  This movie stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Carla Gugino, Ciaran Hinds, Alexander Ludwig, Tom Everett Scott, Christopher Marquette and Annasophia Robb and was directed by Andy Fickman.

As far as special features go, this Blu-ray Disc is completely loaded down.  There is a Blu-ray Disc of the movie, a DVD of the movie and digital copy of the movie for you to put on your portable digital device.  On the Blu-ray Disc, there are a reel of bloopers, a selection of deleted scenes and a great featurette that helps you to discover hidden references to the original movie this film is based off of.

I loved this movie.  This is a kid’s film that the whole family will deeply enjoy.  Dwayne Johnson has made himself into a heartfelt and heartwarming presence in Disney movies and him being in a movie actually makes me want to go and see it.  Carla Gugino is a delectable treat any time she appears in a movie, but the rising star is someone else.  Annasophia Robb is someone who keeps doing better and better in her film roles and she is certainly on the rise, so be sure to look for her in the coming years.  This movie is exciting and moving and there are some great nods to the original film that the astute can catch.  In short, it’s a great movie and the whole family will enjoy it – I guarantee it.

Race to bring home this fantastic film today!

This Blu-ray Disc is available at Amazon.com.
