I recently had the opportunity to attend a screening of the upcoming re-imagining of a Disney classic. So just how does this sci-fi action thriller for the Hannah Montana generation stack up? Read the no-holds-barred interview here.
Can you smellllllllllll what the Disney publicity machine is cookin’? The actor formerly known as The Rock, Dwayne Johnson, is working overtime to promote the release of Race to Witch Mountain this Friday. After hosting FOX’s Animation Domination last week, Johnson did double duty this weekend, hosting both Saturday Night Live as well as a Disney marathon of films on Starz Sunday night. And he has not yet begun to promote.
