Watchmen star Carla Gugino talks about her new sci-fi flick Race to Witch Mountain A re-imagining of the 1975 classic Escape to Witch Mountain, Race to Witch Mountain will introduce a new generation of kids to Disney’s young alien franchise. Like the original, two children with extraordinary powers seek to save Earth and their own planet from evil forces. They waste no time jumping into a hapless Las Vegas taxi driver’s cab ordering him to put the pedal to the metal. It soon becomes clear the secret to their quest lies somewhere in Witch Mountain, a place where top-secret government activity has been going on for years. Playing the part of the astrophysicist is Carla Gugino. Fresh from the success of her latest film “Watchmen”, the actress met up with Paul Byrne to discuss the film, aliens and her time in Ireland: Race to Witch Mountain is in Irish cinemas April 10th.
