Dwyane "The Rock" Johnson laid the smack down on the Hollywood box office once again, with his new Disney film "Race to Witch Mountain" opening at number one. The PG-rated sci-fi movie raked in $25 million for the weekend, surprassing expectations and knocking "The Watchmen" out of the top spot. Mark Zoradi, president of Disney's motion-picture group, said analysts had predicted that "Race to Witch Mountain," director Andy Fickman's remake of the 1975 film "Escape to Witch Mountain," would fly away with $20 million or less. Now he expects this "Witch Mountain" to do big numbers with kids on spring break. "I think audiences this weekend were really drawn to the action adventure of 'Race to Witch Mountain,'" said Zoradi. "There was also this element of parents over 30 who remembered the original and were drawn to this one, so I think that combination is what helped us exceed what folks in the industry thought this movie was going to do."
