Family action double bill. In 'Sky High' (2005), the son of legendary heroes, Commander (Kurt Russell) and Jetstream (Kelly Preston), young Will Stronghold (Michael Angarano) carries huge expectations as he enters a high-tech high school, known for moulding the heroes of tomorrow. With no apparent superpowers of his own, however, Will seems destined to grow up a mere sidekick. But as he discovers his true strengths, he also learns that it takes loyalty and teamwork to truly become a hero. 'Haunted Mansion' (2003) is another screen adaptation of a Disney theme park ride (the other being 'Pirates of the Caribbean'). Real-estate agent Jim Evers (Eddie Murphy) is given the task of shifting Gracey Manor, a delapidated old house in New Orleans, and decides to visit it with his family. When they arrive, however, they come face-to-face with 999 grim, grinning ghosts who are not too keen on sharing their space with mortals. With the help of supernatural psychic Madame Leota (Jennifer Tilly), the family must battle to break the mansion's curse before the clock strikes 13.
