Synopsis

Collection of four adventure movies. In 'Eight Below' (2006), after an Antarctic expedition with Dr. Davis McClaren (Bruce Greenwood), sled dog trainer Jerry Shepherd (Paul Walker) has to leave the polar base with his colleagues due to the proximity of a heavy snow storm. He ties his dogs to be rescued at a later date, but the mission is called off and the dogs are left alone to their own fortune. For six months, Jerry tries to find a sponsor for a rescue mission while his dogs fight for survival. Driven by unwavering bonds of friendship, enormous belief in one another, and tremendous courage, Jerry and the dogs make an incredible journey to reunite. In 'Flubber' (1997) college professor Philip Brainard (Robin Williams) is so absent-minded that he manages to miss his own wedding to colleague Sara Reynolds (Marcia Gay Harden). The reason Philip forgets is his new invention - Flubber (voice of Scott Martin Gershin), a high-energy green substance which can bounce great distances, even enabling Philip to fly his car like an aeroplane. However, Philip and Flubber have their work cut out when they discover that Sara has been sweet-talked by Philip's rival in love, Wilson Croft (Christopher McDonald). Together with Philip's pet robot, Weebo (voice of Jodi Benson), they set about winning Sara back. In 'Race to Witch Mountain' (2009), a remake of the 1975 film 'Escape from Witch Mountain', Dwayne Johnson stars as Jack Bruno, a Las Vegas cab driver who finds himself caught up in a race to save the world when he discovers that Sara and Seth (AnnaSophia Robb and Alexander Ludwig), the brother and sister travelling in his cab, have supernatural powers for which they are being pursued by villainous mobster Henry Burke (Ciarán Hinds). Can the siblings unravel the secrets of the mysterious Witch Mountain in time to save the future of the planet? In 'National Treasure' (2004) Benjamin Franklin Gates (Nicolas Cage) is an archaeologist from the seventh generation of a family of treasure-seekers who have all shared the same quest: to discover the whereabouts of an old war chest full of gold hidden by the founding fathers in the last days of the Revolutionary War. Ben must work against the clock to unravel the clues embedded in the original drafts of two key historical documents - the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence - before his criminal ex-partner Ian Howe (Sean Bean) or the FBI, led by Agent Sadusky (Harvey Keitel), get their mitts on the loot. Helping him in his quest is beautiful archivist Abigail Chase (Diane Kruger).
