The movie slate for 2009 has some upcoming family-friendly releases that look very promising.
“Inkheart,” based on the book by Cornelia Funke and opening January 23, stars Brendan Fraser as a man who has the power to bring the characters from books to life.
In March we have “Race to Witch Mountain,” not a remake but a sort of semi-sequel to the Disney classics Escape to Witch Mountain and Return from Witch Mountain. Duane “The Rock” Johnson plays a man who has to protect two children with mysterious powers from the bad guys who want to capture them.
I am really looking forward to the April release of the new Hannah Montana movie!
And of course we’re already counting the moments until Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, coming out in July.
