Race To Witch Mountain (2009) Movie Script

Object of unknown origin
is at 90k and descending fast.
Give me a visual track now!
Zero match
with anything on our database.
It's manuevering!
We're registering impact!
Get me Henry Burke, now!
Hey, you think this is it?
This is the real deal.
You'll learn.
Squad and equipment
locked and loaded.
I've rerouted
local law and media.
Impact was 8 minutes ago,
how long until we land?
Imperial droid, drive your geonisian
star fighters to planet... Hollywood.
Die! Die!
Scan the perimeter, no one
gets in and nothing gets out.
Planet Hollywood, please.
They've got everything here!
This place is truly like
being on another planet.
With all this to see every night.
You must never get bored.
Welcome to the...
nut job convention.
I understand your reaction, they
certainly aren't helping our cause.
Our cause?
Educating the public on the legitimate
possibility of life on other planets.
As a matter of fact, I'm giving a lecture
on Astro-physical anamoly detection...
at the...
nut job convention.
Feel free to stop by. Close minded
skeptics are always welcome.
Keep the change.
Dr. Alex Friedman.
A classic.
Hey come on!
Knock it off, will ya?
I need to sleep!
Yeah, me too.
I'm Casey Smith and we're back
with a breaking news alert.
An accident research like.
And I'm Church Agee, we're gonna take
you to our reporter live on the scene.
Officials are calling it the worst
chlorine spill in state history.
A five mile security perimeter
has been established.
Highway Patrol Officers have been rerouting
traffic since the early morning hours.
And we're now being told, this section
of Route 95, will be closed indefinitely.
This is Natalie Gann, reporting.
The cast we pulled outta the trench
indicate a distinct pattern...
alternating between the depth
of the impressions, here and here.
Suggesting not one, but two seperate
E.V.E's that were moving fast.
Possibly humanoid form.
Review every data gathering entity within
a 15 mile radius starting upon impact.
Look out for any anomalies.
Hey you guys gotta
move this thing, I gotta go.
Don't return phone calls anymore?
Mr. Wolf thinks you're being rude.
Tell Wolf that when I said
it was the last time, I meant it.
Mr. Wolf decides
when its the last time.
Not you Jack.
He likes you Jackie.
He hates to see you wasting
your god given driving talent...
giving fat tourists cab rides
up and down the strip.
But we're kinda late for that.
It's what I'm late for.
You got a death wish?
I drive a cab in Vegas.
You're dead, Jack!
What're you doing?
Are you insane?
Now move this thing outta the taxi
zone before I give you a ticket!
See you soon, Jackie.
W... Where'd you come from?
Yeah, I figured that part out
on my own.
- How'd you get in the car?
- Through that portal.
I'm Seth, this is my sister Sara.
We require transportation
services immediately.
- Really?
- Well I require...
- Currency transaction.
- Will this amount suffice?
What did you two,
rob a bank?
Is this acceptable, Jack Bruno?
How'd you know my name?
If we have a deal for your services,
we must move forward rapidly.
It's urgent we get to our
destination without delay.
Alright, alright I'm going.
Where to?
I need an address!
We must travel in that direction.
Well I'm gonna need something more
specific than just... that direction.
We must locate latitude 40.54
cross intersecting longitude...
We're just gonna stick with
that direction.
We tracked the two sets of E.V.E's
foot prints on and off for 7.3 miles.
Finally we lose them at a
rest stop just off the highway.
there was a Highway Patrol
incident report filed at...
at the exact same...
rest stop.
A car trunk was burglarized,
no signs of forced entry...
Give me something better
than that Mr. Pope.
Stolen clothing belonging
to a couple of teenagers.
Alright, we're in the game,
people lets roll with this.
Now two kids, don't walk down
the Highway alone at night.
We got a senior citizens bus landing
roughly at the same time, same rest stop.
Fast forward to, when the passengers
are re-entering the vehicle.
Fast forwarding...
Looks like the bus picked up
some extra baggage.
Route schedule indicates
next stop...
Sin City.
I want total access to every single
surveillance camera Vegas has turned on.
Check office buildings, warehouses,
restrooms, department stores...
look in... sewer systems
if you have to.
ATM's... Freeman Street
and Main to be exact.
Bank records indicate...
They withdrew the entire
contents of the machine...
Fifteen thousand dollars,
and also...
they never used a card, they never
even touched the machine, not once.
These EVE's possess
some extraordinary skills.
Here's the cab company's
security camera.
Keep your eyes
on the back door of the cab.
Right there.
get me a license plate.
They're on transport now.
And no matter what
they appear to look like,
kill 'em...
they're not children.
They're not even human.
Are your parents gonna be okay with
you guys spending all this money?
We have previously agreed
upon our financial deal.
If your concern
is regarding compensation...
My concern is the fact,
that I got a couple of kids...
in the back of my cab
with a big wad of cash,
with a drop off location thats pretty
much in the middle of nowhere.
Now in my book, thats a little
chapter called "running away".
Jack, you better be getting
desert miles on that fare.
And they better be able to pay.
And you better get me an ETA!
I'm losing reception, Dominick.
Jack? Jack?!
Oh, come on!
Jack Bruno, the vehicles behind us
are indicating a pattern of pursuit.
There's no vehicles following.
At your current rate of speed
versus theirs...
they will overtake our vehicle
in less than one minute.
Relax kid!
I'm just gonna let them pass.
Open road people,
it's all yours.
See what'd I tell ya,
nobody is following us.
I'm a king of these roads...
Jack Bruno!
I said I was out and I meant it!
Who is Mr. Wolf, Jack Bruno?
How do you know that...
Get down now!
Hold on.
He is just a cab driver right?
Jack Bruno, it would appear
that we have not eluded them.
I'm so over this.
Stay down, stay down!
Seth, no! It's not a good idea.
- I have to try.
- It's too dangerous.
- Look out!
- Now what?!
Get out, get out!
You two okay?
We are...
We should just keep moving.
Stay here.
What you didn't get the message?
I told Frank and Marty I was out!
You tell Wolf for me that he's
gonna pay for my repairs.
You are in way over your head here.
I want a complete profile of the driver.
You think he's collaborating?
Either way he's a liability.
Get me somebody at transport.
How you two holding up back there?
We're fine.
I'm sorry I dragged you two into all of this.
There's no need for you
to apologize Jack Bruno.
You're not always the one to blame.
But the urgency of our trip has not decreased.
Look don't worry, I'll get you
to where you need to go.
You've earned it.
We're here Jack Bruno.
There's nothing here.
Somebody's expecting you two right?
Doesn't look like anyone's home.
Don't worry Jack Bruno, we'll
soon be reunited with relatives.
But after everything that went down today,
how about I knock off 25%and I also...
- Here
Okay then.
Goodbye to you too.
You guys overpaid!
By a lot!
Everything okay in there?
What just happened?
Jack Bruno you should not have
jeopardized your life by following us.
What sort of trouble are you two in?
I suggest you return back to your vehicle.
Your services are no longer required.
- Seth he's just trying to help.
- We don't need his help.
Somebody's already been here looking for it.
We simply cannot trust any of them.
Just us, Sara.
We appreciate your efforts
to assist us Jack Bruno.
But my brother is right.
We can involve you no further.
Got it! Let's go!
Hey just tell me what's-
Hurry up Sara.
What is that?
Don't go in the pimped out fridge, Jack.
What is this place?
This way.
Hey hey, hey!
Sara, it's here!
What a- What is it?
It is what we came for Jack Bruno!
Is anyone else lookin' for it?
Say, is the person that trashed
everything up stairs?
We think so.
It is very valuable.
Which is why it was vital
that we locate it first.
What makes you so sure that whoever
else wanted it, isn't still looking for it?
Go... go!
Run, run, run!
Jack Bruno!
Go, go go... Sara!
Jack Bruno!
We gotta go!
Keep moving!
Go go!
Sara lets go!
Get in!
Hey how's your brother doing?
- His system has the ability...
- I will be fine.
It is important we gain much
distance from this location.
Well, I'm happy you're feeling better.
Because you're gonna need your
strength when you explain to me,
Just what happened back there!
Alright here's the deal.
The cab doesn't move until you're mouths do.
So start talking.
The information you are seeking is not
within your grasp of understanding.
We are dealing with issues
outside the realm of...
your world.
Hey I'm a cab driver okay?
I have had plenty of worldly experien-
Sara! We have to go!
What is it?
Hang on!
Hold on!
We can't let him destroy it Sara.
Who is 'he'?
And this time I need real answers.
- It's a Siphon.
- A what?
He's an assassin trained to pursue his
target until his mission is completed.
And his mission is...
Is there a safer route, Jack Bruno?
Not unless you know how to fly.
Jack Bruno!
Come on come on, hold it together!
Oh come on!
Faster, faster!
It won't go any faster!
Hold on!
Watch out!
Jack Bruno...
In and outta juve and state penns since he
was a kid, grew up poor in Midland, Texas.
Showed promise cutting his teeth driving
demolition derby and dirt track...
Ironically at the age of 16,
his parents died in a car wreck.
At 17 he ran away
from his foster home.
And he headed to Las Vegas in hopes
of going from Stock car to NASCAR.
Instead he found work as a wheel man
for Andrew Wolf, the Vegas crime boss.
His last bust was two years ago,
Grand Theft Auto...
he got out went legit and... uh.
he's been driving a cab ever since.
We spoke to Jack Bruno's boss
at Yellow Cab...
Bruno took a fare of significant
distance outta the city.
Dispatcher claims he's been unable to
obtain radio contact for several hours.
Does the cab
have a tracking device?
Until it stopped
transmitting 20 minutes ago.
For some crazy reason,
last location was on train tracks.
No, we cannot trust him.
I know we can't.
We must.
Couple of kids,
big wad of cash.
What could go wrong!
We know you're frustrated,
Jack Bruno.
No, no more Jack Bruno this,
Jack Bruno that.
- I've been asking for answers...
- You already know the answers, Jack Bruno.
My brother and I,
are indeed not from your planet.
That's it...
So, that's it?
Mystery solved!
You two want me to believe
that you're both aliens?
It is the truth.
Well, you don't look like aliens.
Well, what's an alien
look like, Jack Bruno?
You know what aliens look like!
They look like, little...
like, little green people,
with antennas and laser guns!
And "take me to your leader,
He requires some sort of proof.
He thinks we're insulting
his intelligence.
You think?
You can't just drop the, "we're aliens!"
bomb just like that, on somebody,
Now, I know I've seen some
pretty weird things today...
but you can't expect me
to believe that...
I have the ability to move
objects with my mind.
That's impossible.
No it's quite possible.
On our planet as well as yours.
You don't do it because you haven't
learned to use your full brain capacity.
No, I don't do it
because it's kinda creepy.
And I really
would like you to stop.
Jack Bruno!
Come on!
Come on, come on!
The freight engineer is banged up, but alive.
Last thing he saw in the tunnel was
our taxi, and a set of flying lights.
He figured it must've been a small plane.
Small plane?
Whoa, whoa, whoa... you guys think that
there's a chance that there is a second ship?
You have the ability to fly at the speed
of light, yet you used a beat up cab?
I don't think so.
Secure the site.
Catalog every piece of debris.
I want to know what's train,
what's cab, and what's left.
Anyone here?
We're closed!
Oh, there you are.
Yeah, I know you're closed, but, uh, we've
experienced a little bit of car trouble...
- so, I was hoping that maybe...
- We're still closed.
You should've experienced you
car trouble when we were open.
Well, I'll work on that
next time.
- This time, I really need you to...
- Jack Bruno...
The only thing that will convince
Eddie Cortez to reopen for business...
would be a significant
amount of money.
Wait a minute.
Do I know you?
No, absolutely not, you don't
know them from anywhere.
I'll pay you double your rate.
- Why not triple?
- Done!
What'd you get in a fight
with a Rhinocerus?
Poor Rhino.
Poor Rhino, I know!
I don't even know where
to start with this baby.
Well, where you can start is replacing
the front shocks, and the tie rods,
and patch up the radiator fix the
exhaust and if you have 4 tires,
I'll take those too...
you got one hour.
Over here...
come on, sit, sit.
Sit down.
I hope you do not act upon your
thought of making a fast break...
out of the back door of Ray's,
escaping the Stoney Creek.
Never to look back at us again.
H... how...
how do you know that?
My sister also has
the gift of telepathy.
She can read the minds
of those nearest to her.
Really? Well, you tell
your sister that here on Earth,
reading minds?
Very rude.
Don't do that.
Welcome to Ray's!
My name is Tina
and I'm gonna be your server.
Wow, look at the two of you.
Ah... what'd you mean
look at the two of them?
They look like just two regular,
innocent.. uh, all American kids.
Well, it looked like they just
rolled around in a pig pen...
right before dinner, that's all.
- Evening, Tina!
- Sheriff Anthony!
Your tables waitin' for you.
I'm gonna send you
a round of freedom pies huh?
- Sounds good.
- Thank you.
Now, why don't the 2 of you come with me
and we'll get you all cleaned up, huh?
Hurry back.
It's Jack!
I've been trying you all night!
Where are you?
Drop that fare yet?
No, not yet, it's... it's really,
real complicated right now.
Un-complicate it.
I want my cab back.
- Spotless.
- Yeah, I... yeah...
Dominick, I gotta go.
Ja... Jack!
Got 'em, Stony Creek.
Okay, get us a transport. I want
a clean extraction in 20 minutes.
You know, I think it would be...
Best for everyone if Seth
and I found another ride?
you gotta stop doing that.
Jack Bruno, it is understandable
that you are scared...
and confused considering all
that has occurred today.
I'm not scared.
Just... a little confused.
But... but the bottom line is,
you guys need someone from...
from... from NASA, or...
or the Air Force, not me.
If you abandon us now, our mission
will be in serious jeopardy.
Hey look, I'm just trying
to be honest here, okay?
I'm the wrong guy.
A wise human once said,
"You are what you think you are".
Yeah, well, why don't you
find that guy and ask him.
It was the Buddha.
He's unavailable.
How is it, that beings
on your planet...
can be so large in form...
yet feel so small inside.
Maybe you need help too,
Jack Bruno.
Dominick I told you...
Are they safe Jack?
Who is this?
My name is Henry Burke.
I work within
the Department of Defense.
I handle their more
sensitive cases.
What'd you mean sensitive?
I suspect we both know
the answer to that question.
Look they're just kids.
They don't want
any trouble and neither do I.
Good, then we're all
on the same page.
Trouble is the last thing
I want as well.
But what I do want, and I'm
counting on you to help me here...
are your two passengers.
What're you gonna do with them?
Do you care this much about
everyone that get's into your cab?
You're a convincted felon, Jack.
Spent most of the day breaking
one law after another, for what?
For them?
What do you want me to do?
Don't make a scene.
You walked them into Ray's...
you can walk them out.
I'll take it from there.
And to show my appreciation for your
trouble, I'll wipe your slate clean.
Just walk away huh?
No harm, no foul?
That's right just walk away.
You've got 5 minutes Jack,
then it's all over.
See ya then.
I don't trust him.
Cover all the exits.
They're here for us, aren't they?
Yeah, they are.
I knew we couldn't trust him Sara.
Excuse me Sheriff?
- It's too late, we have to run.
I was just wondering what your town's
policy is regarding concealed firearms?
Excuse me?
There's a whole lotta guns
coming in right now.
You're making a big mistake Sheriff.
I'll take my chances.
Dude I told you I should have a gun.
Now might not be the best time
to bring that up... dude.
This is not good.
Follow me.
Up there.
Thank you.
Good luck.
You have no idea
who you're dealing with.
There's a lock on the outside,
we gotta find another...
Hey! Hey!
Or we could do that.
Whatever that is.
My brother has the ability
to control his molecular density.
Which allows him to phase
through solid objects...
or withstand
greatest of impacts.
That's neat, real neat.
Well, you got some mighty big friends,
in some mighty big places.
You check out.
Hi, little fella!
We appreciate
your understanding.
Let's go.
Got an open hatch
leadin' to the roof.
We're on our way.
Hey times up we gotta go.
Go? Mister I still got
a lotta work to do.
Next time we're in town,
we'll make an appointment.
Want my card?
- No
Taxi is on the move, I want every
possible escape route locked down.
I want that cab,
and everyone in it!
There's too many of them to outrun!
Whatever you're doing,
keep doing it.
Say goodbye to Stony Creek.
No no no no!
Not now, not now come on!
Sara... Sara!
Are you doing this?
Sara, I said-
Oh absolutely not!
This Junkyard,
is not going with us!
I am done picking up
stray passengers!
Those guys who were chasing us, were
the same ones from the highway right?
It is vital that you take us
to their base of operation.
You want me to take you to the
guys who are trying to kill you?
Let me explain to you how we
do things here, on Earth.
People who want you dead,
you avoid.
That way you...
...stay alive.
Make sense?
No one on your planet will stay alive,
if we do not return to our planet.
In order to return,
we need our ship.
Those men who are trying to kill us,
have stolen our ship.
Make sense?
Where do you suggest
we begin our search?
I don't suggest
we begin searching at all.
I do suggest we head back to Vegas, and
drop you off right where you got on.
You too.
It's just as I thought.
No human is going to help us, Sara.
Especially not, this human.
Hey! Easy on the human bashing, okay?
Some of my best friends
just happen to be human.
And even if I were to help you
I wouldn't even know where to begin.
I don't know anything about,
about UFO's or aliens...
Who is Dr. Alex Friedman?
She's actually somebody
who can help.
And for the record,
she happens to be human.
No sign of the taxi from anyone yet.
Extend the search.
They're out there.
He would appreciate you pulling over
so that he can relieve himself.
Well we don't have time for that.
He should've went
before we left Stony Creek.
He isn't pleased with your attitude.
Really? Is that the way he feels?
Well you remind him,
that I'm a man... and he's a dog!
And I'm not about to have this,
or any conversation with a dog.
So my answer is still, no.
Junkyard says thank you.
Did he now?
Is there anything else he wants?
He said he would love a bone,
or a meaty treat?
Top of my to-do list,
just get in.
I need you to keep the cab close
and get the dog some water.
Give him a meaty treat.
Okay, stay close to me
and don't talk to anyone.
Nice and normal.
I'm tellin' you
he walked right past me.
Bad move.
This was captured by a far imaging
telescope at the University of Bahn.
Less than 48 hours ago.
What I want to direct
your attention to, is this.
That looks like a smudge!
Yes it does!
Was it a space ship?
- Did they abduct you?
- Excuse me?
The aliens that abducted you,
were they the Grays?
Or the lizard people.
What? No,
I wasn't abducted by anyone.
How do you know?
Dr. Harlan's last book was all about
how the aliens could erase your memory.
With probes.
Donald Harlan's book?
You may have been probed.
It's pure science fiction.
People I am talking about
science fact, here.
Hard, hard data,
not crop circles.
Hey, you ever actually
been inside a crop circle?
I have!
It was huge!
It's where the mothership landed,
where they took me on board...
where I was married
to an alien woman.
That's it, I will not answer
anymore questions... uh, about...
alien abductions, crop circles,
or Dr. Harlan, is that clear?
If we could just get back
to the matter at hand.
People! Hello?
I promise it'll be worth it,
the blue nebula!
We got a hit on Bruno's
license plate.
They're back in Vegas.
The cattle mutilation lecture
doesn't start for another hour...
but... grab a seat,
it's supposed to be packed.
It always is.
We're hear to see you, actually.
Jack Bruno, we met earlier.
We did?
Airport to hotel?
Oh, the non believer.
What are the odds.
Hey is there some place
we can talk?
The crowds in here
making you uncomfortable?
Even more private than this.
Look, no offense
but I'm pretty...
She's doubting her thesis
on Gliese 581...
and Alcubierre's Warp Drive.
How did you know that?
Oh, it gets a lot better.
Trust me.
Are you insane?
I just thought you of all people
would understand and wanna help!
Why, because I'm the nut job
speaking at the UFO convention?
Don't answer that.
- I know it sounds really crazy.
- You think?
Hey, please don't touch that.
You captured an image of our ship.
The smudge?
You're telling me you think
the smudge is your space ship.
No, we don't think
it's our space ship.
We know it is our space ship.
That's it, I'm out.
Now if you'll excuse me,
I'll just grab my laptop and...
Oh, they can also do,
all this stuff too.
Who are you?
Show her.
This is huge!
I have some questions!
Even though you are the answers
here standing right in front of me.
I'm sorry.
Very excited.
But where are you from?
Our planet is located some
But space travel
of such sizable distance...
is possible using a paradoxical
passage in the unbound...
That's it!
My presentation at City
National convention was right!
Interstellar travel is possible using
worm holes as a shortcut through space!
That was my first guess
as well, the... wormholes.
Continue doctor.
Why did you come to Earth?
Our planet is dying.
Milennia of neglect has rendered
our atmosphere unbreathable.
That sounds familiar.
Our parents are scientists who have
studied Earth's changing climates...
in hopes of finding a solution
for our planet's future.
As our people's fears began
to rise and then our parent's...
discovered something our leaders
were very interested in.
Your planet makes a suitable
living environment for our kind.
It would be simplest to abandon
our dying planet and occupy yours.
Okay so wait, I'm helping
you conquer my own planet?
Most of the people on our planet
are fiercely opposed to this plan.
But fear of extinction
triumphed among our people.
But then our parent's
discovered a solution.
An experiment at an outpost here was
successful in regenerating life...
into all previous
dying plants and trees.
Which would enable the re-oxygenating
of your poisoned atmosphere.
Alright, so...
what's the problem?
Our military.
They prefer the solution
of invasion over science.
Which is why we had to hurry
and retrieve the experiment.
All proof that our planet can be saved
and your planet spared is in here.
Where are your parents again?
They were arrested
for their opposition.
We agreed to complete
the task for them.
And what about the assassin?
What assassin?
The Siphon warrior series Duranian
They're bred to hunt?
They're bred to kill...
If we don't return back home in
time, the invasion will proceed.
We seriously need to find
your space ship.
So, how well
do you know this guy?
Oh, we've done a few panels and
debates together on opposite sides.
No one knows the shadow world of UFO
government conspiracies better than Harlan.
Not now Whitley.
Well hello, Dr. Friedman.
So, you finally decided to accept my offer
of a romantic Benihana dinner for two.
Three... three years ago.
A screening of the cooper footage?
You were in the 4th row
Sorry I keep my work and social life
seperate, I don't date... colleagues.
Colleagues! Indeed...
Listen, we need to see
Harlan right away.
Doctor Harlan is presently
unavailable for consultations.
We're more than qualified
to answer any...
There is no time for that,
it's a matter of life and death...
that we see Harlan, now!
Life and death, ooh!
Ooh, what... scary drama queen...
Yeah, the 411, sitch...
You're currently alive.
Unless you take us to Harlan,
you'll be dead.
- Okay, yeah... together if you want...
- Yeah let's go... together right now!
Go away!
The book signing's not 'till 4:30,
read the brochure!
Harlan, it's Alex Friedman.
Dr. Alex Friedman.
We have to speak with you immediately
it is incredibly important.
So, you're saying the three of you
witnessed this reported UFO crash.
That's right.
We were wondering if there were any
intel out there amongst your sources.
I hate lying.
I really don't like lying.
I can tell when people
are lying to me.
But thankfully your story checks out
with all the reports...
I got from SEDI
and NORAD and NASA.
We have reason to believe a team
of government sponsored...
covert operatives
recovered the space craft.
Okay, back up a little,
this is not space camp.
Let the experts do their work.
You know, you're very lucky
you two, that you didn't come...
face to face with the aliens
who were in that craft.
They're like deadly praying
mantis's they eat your flesh.
Oh, oh yes, we are indeed lucky kids,
not to have had our flesh eaten,
by the aliens.
You got that right,
okay let's go to work here,
I got an email from a source
that sent me this SAT grab...
Where would they take
the space ship?
Wright-Patterson? Vandenburg?
Well, from the size and scope of the crash,
I would say there is only one possibility.
- Witch Mountain!
- Witch Mountain!...
What are we...
a singing group here?
- Let me talk, and you guys nod!
- I apologize, I'm sorry.
Witch Mountain, let's take
a look here we go California.
About 50 miles
from the border of Nevada.
And its one of our...
top secret facilities.
They got a schematic
here some place.
You know if you're planning
on visiting, don't.
When I say this place is fortified up the
ying yang, I'm making an understatement.
Here's the schematic.
- And, do you have the book?
- Yes, I do.
Alright then,
here's an aerial view.
Thank you, Harlan.
For everything.
Whatever trouble you're in.
Trust no one.
Thank you.
Both of you.
Seth and I understand that you
don't have to go forward with us.
And yet you choose to.
You're welcome.
And don't worry,
we're gonna get you home.
I'm gonna go grab my stuff,
let's meet upstairs...
in the convention at my booth,
then we get your cab.
Alex... huh, listen...
I can't let you come with us.
If 1/2 of what Harlan says is true,
it's way too dangerous.
They got in my cab,
they're my problem.
Um... no!
I have spent my entire life
preparing for this moment...
and now when I have two
actual aliens in need of my help,
you want me to walk away?
It's not gonna happen.
Man up, soldier, I'm in!
Just lay low,
'till we meet up.
Sure! Lay low.
Easy, how hard could that be.
She thinks you're very handsome.
And smarter than you think you are.
So she was thinking about me huh?
At least as much as you
were thinking about her.
So, she didn't happen to mention
in her thoughts that I was a...
It's showtime everybody!
Space Echo No. 9
it's upstairs come on!
Should we go upstairs now?
Yeah, yeah... let's go upstairs.
Hey, do you think
she was thinkin' about?...
Tried to warn you Jack.
Mr. Wolf doesn't
take rejection well.
This is so not a good time.
You're out of time Jack.
Well well well, if it isn't the
rebel alliance cab driver scum!
Not such a tough guy out of
your ship are you, swamp rat?
You're in our house now!
Hi! I'm Sunday!
Welcome to Planet Hollywood!
Are you gentlemen here
for the UFO space expo?
Wouldn't miss it.
Costume's great man!
I sure hope we have enough fuelage
to get back to planet Earth comrade!
Fear not Celeste!
We must get to the ship!
My leg!
Oh no!
Look at that beast
from another galaxy!
Didn't I tell you two
to stay by my side?
Is this re-enactment an important
piece of Earth's history?
No, come on.
Let's go, we gotta go.
Jack Bruno!
Let's go!
Best convention ever!
Other way...
Sara, you listening
to what I'm thinking?
Gotta go!
What happened to laying low?
Who lays low in Vegas?
We got em!
Our suspects,
no one else interferes!
Do not move!
DO NOT move!
Greetings Earthlings!
I didn't even imagine they'd actually
look human, much less like kids.
They're lucky you joined us Doctor.
We're lucky... you joined us.
Luck has nothing to do with it.
It's pure science.
Chaos theory?
The underlying order,
inapparently random data.
So more like fate?
Think about it.
What are the odds, that they would crash
near Vegas, during a UFO convention?
I got in your cab...
And they got in your cab.
And now we're all
in Harlan's mobile home...
loaded with HIS intel
on where their ship is!
That is not luck.
That is a predetermined order of
how things work in the universe.
Have you always been this positive?
I've always been
a "searcher" for answers.
Though my folks would say
I was merely a day dreamer.
How about you?
Me? I'm a...
Much easier book to read.
All my life my answers
have been, yes or no.
Zero gray areas.
Where's the mustang fall?
A yes or a no.
That's not just any mustang.
That's a 1968
Ford Mustang GT390 Fastback.
Steve McQueen's car in Bullet.
Never seen Bullet?
It's currently a no.
But one day I'm gonna
earn that car the honest way.
Then it will be my yes.
What's up pal?
Are we there yet?
"Are we there yet...?"
Good in any universe apparently.
Well, Alex?
Well, the maps are 30 years old
but they're the best intel we got.
Looks to be about 5 miles
from here to the entrance.
Let's rock and roll.
There's gotta be another entrance.
If the map is right.
There are several service
tunnels running outward.
Worth lookin' for right?
Let's go.
Mr. Bruno!
And I believe Dr. Friedman.
What'd you do to them?
Consider yourself lucky.
I could've had you both shot
on sight for trespassing.
In violation
of U.S. government property.
With all do respect,
you have to listen to me.
They came in peace, we cannot
respond with violence.
The future of Earth depends on it.
It is absolutely vital
that they get home.
They are home, Dr. Friedman.
They are now in my custody.
You can't expect to keep them
prisoner and get away with it?
They have rights!
They're illegal aliens on U.S.
soil without so much as a passport.
Patriot Act enables me to detain
them for as long as is necessary.
You can't keep this quiet.
The world has a right to know
that they exist.
And you're gonna be the one
to blow the whistle, Doctor?
A failed astro physicist...
fired by three universities
for obsessing over UFO's?
Teamed up with an ex-con...
and declaring the government has
captured two normal looking kids...
and is holding them hostage inside
a mountain... that doesn't exist.
It'd be so much easier
to let you speak,
then to deal with all the paper
work involved with killing you.
Someone will believe us.
From behind bars?
Let me remind you Mr. Bruno, as a
convicted felon you're looking...
at 20 years just for standing
on this mountain talking to me.
Shall I go on?
No, I get the message.
Smart man.
Give them a lift back now.
That's it, it's over?
I'm sorry.
I will not go back to prison.
Thankfully Seth and Sara didn't have
to witness how quickly you gave up.
I told them from the beginning
it was a suicide mission.
And I wasn't wrong.
They trusted you, I trusted you.
Well join the club with everybody
else in my life who I've disappointed.
People dissect them like frogs in a
high school biology class you know that!
It's not my problem,
and it never will...
By the way that slap?
Very realistic.
When did you know?
Haven't bailed on the kids yet,
why start now.
How soon until the subjects are prepped.
They're heavily sedated.
Minimal main task proceeding
within 48 to 72 hours.
Commence the procedure.
We don't know enough
about their systems.
Any sudden change
could terminate the subjects.
You can't just kill them.
Mr. Pope... you would do well,
not to forget what our mission is.
Our orders come from Washington.
And Washington wants answers
to some very complex questions.
Our goal is
to provide those answers.
Now, if you...
are doubting your ability...
Very good then.
Commence the test, Mr. Matheson.
Right away sir,
initiating tests.
After you.
I'm right behind you.
- Back up!
- What?
Move back a second.
It's gonna be okay, I'm
gonna be here the whole time.
Be right below you the whole time.
What's that?
Oh no, Jack.
Exhaust furnace!
This way!
There's another tunnel right here.
You okay?
Let's go.
What now?
Find the kids,
don't get caught.
Good plan.
We're very close to determining
the source of their powers.
Yes sir, containment is at 100%
We recovered the 2 targets
and the space craft.
I understand.
Thank you sir.
And thank you for sticking
by me and the project,
I know it's taken a long time to
get here but I think we both agree,
it's been worth our previous failures.
All vitals appear to be stabilized.
Deadly force authorized.
Project Moondust troops,
meet me in sector 2.
Bravo team, follow me.
Fall back!
Hi! Can I borrow that pen?
I have three older brothers.
Sir, this area has been compromised.
Make sure the blast door is sealed.
Seal it off!
We got an Alpha Level 1
breach in the main hall brooks!
All units respond.
Isolate it, lock down and
secure your sector now.
Lost communication with sector 5.
We're under attack.
Repeat, all levels
have been compromised.
We're under attack.
What is that?
No idea.
It's cuttin' down our troops.
Driving a path straight to us.
Head for the lab, let's go!
What is it?
Some sort of anasthetic.
Fix it?
I don't know but I can try.
Locks are too strong.
Gotta hurry, gotta hurry!
Can't get em open.
Seth, it's okay.
It's okay.
I'm gonna get you out of here.
Guys, its over there.
Oh my...
We have to hurry.
Well, tell them that.
Good idea.
Excuse me!
Do you not hear the alarms?
Work in this sector
is to cease immediately.
We have off the chart readings of
sodium hydrochloride, zenon, hydrazine,
and you don't even want to know
how bad the gamma radiation is.
You're going to have to do some serious
and I mean serious scrubbing down.
Who are you?
Who... who am I?
Who am I?!
I'll tell you who I am.
I am your worst nightmare
and Court Marshall soldier!
Now you either do
as you're told, or I can go...
tell Henry Burke, you disobeyed
his direct orders.
Your call.
Choose wisely.
I am pleased to inform you...
all personnel have evacuated
the ship's hangar.
What're you talking about?
Under whose authority?
- Sir?
- Get outta my way.
Thank you!
We were having a hard time
figuring that part out.
A brave but empty gesture,
Mr. Bruno.
They're just kids.
Hold your fire! Hold your fire!
Go go run run run!
Get after them!
Alpha break left, Bravo on me!
You gotta get this thing
up in the air, let's go!
Dude, I could really
use a gun right now.
Oh thank you,
this is a really big gun.
Come on!
Activating shields!
Powers at 25% and increasing.
No, no no no!
You do know how to fly
this thing, right?
How do you think we got here?
Well, you crashed, remember?
Hold on!
Got them!
Watch out!
Follow the tunnels!
Here we go.
Do not let them out!
Watch out!
Just shut it down!
We did it!
We did it, we did it!
What was that?
Air lock is jammed I need to
manually override the system.
You two fly,
just tell me what to do.
It takes two to pilot the ship!
I need you to take the controls.
Are you insane?
You look better
with the mask on!
Yes, he's here.
Sir, its Washington, they
have some questions for you.
You both must hurry.
It's only a matter of
time before they get here.
Don't worry about us.
Sara and I want you to have this.
As long as its in your possession
we'll always be able to find you.
Your parents would be very
proud of what you've done here.
Thank you Alex.
I once said that we could never
count on humans to help us.
Especially you, I was wrong.
And for that I'm sorry.
You take care of yourself.
And your sister too.
Do you understand?
You guys remember that,
me and Alex...
we're only a...
a wormhole away!
Alright, okay,
I want you
to promise me something.
Take care of Junkyard for me.
Anything you want.
It's time.
You're a good man Jack.
If everything that you wrote about
in your book is true,
why risk coming out
in the public at all?
Why haven't you been
arrested yet, or worse?
We decided right away, that the
more public we went with the story...
than the less likely
we were to... disappear.
And so far clearly,
we've been right.
Thank you all so much
for listening.
Thank you.
Technically I planned
the whole mission.
