Headline : AnnaSophia Robb Talks Race to Witch Mountain
By : Seventeen Magazine
Get ready to experience the craziest cab drive of your life — well, on DVD! On Tuesday, August 4, Race to Witch Mountain will be available on Blu-ray and DVD. The movie is about a tough-guy cab driver from Las Vegas named Jack (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson) who agrees to drive two teen siblings Sara (AnnaSophia Robb) and Seth (Alexander Ludwig) into the desert to Witch Mountain. But Jack soon finds out that they’re not just ordinary teenagers — they have superpowers! Needless to say, as they all join forces to stop a global disaster, it’s the most exciting cab ride we’ve ever seen. The movie is also jam-packed with lots of cool special effects and nonstop action!
We got a chance to catch up with the very cool AnnaSophia Robb, who gave us the dirt on all the pranks from the set, and what really went on with the aliens!
17: What would you do if you were really telekinetic?
AnnaSophia Robb: I think it’d be nice to move objects with my mind because then I could get dressed in the morning more quickly. Maybe I could move myself around so I could fly. A world of possibilities…
17: What was it like on set? Did you all become friends?
AR: Oh yes, we all definitely became such close friends. Except for Alexander and I. I’m just kidding!
17: Did anything funny happen on set?
AR: I remember the first day of filming, it was April Fool’s. Alexander and I TP-ed Andy’s trailer and saran-wrapped the doorway to his bathroom so he couldn’t get in. That was fun.
17: Was the alien CGI?
AR: No, the alien was real! The guys who did Alien vs. Predator, they made the Siphon suit and there was a stunt guy inside of it. It was like a huge foam and rubber suit. It was really cool! It was nice because when we were on set the presence of the Siphon was there. And it was a little scary, definitely, to look into that tinted helmet.
17: So, you’re going to be a sophomore in high school. How do you balance school and acting?
AR: It’s hard, especially in high school now. Because school is like 100% and it takes up so much time, but I have a tutor that comes with me. And I have to do at least 3 hours of school on set. So we work it out. And then I do school on the weekends too because I want to stay up to beat. I have very good grades!
