The trailer for “Journey 2 : The Mysterious Island”, Disney’s sequel to Brendan Fraser 3D effort “Journey to the Center of the Earth”, has premiered at Yahoo! Movies.
Fraser cops out of this one, but the equally enthusiastic Dwayne Johnson has stepped in. Josh Hutcherson, Vanessa Hudgens, Michael Caine and Kristin Davis make-up the Dolly centerfold support cast (wait, maybe Michael Caine doesn’t fall into that category; can’t imagine young girls would want a Harry Brown spread on their wall!? Then, I could be wrong..) and ol ‘Dawson’s Creek’ locale Wilmington, North Carolina and Hawaii play the backdrop.
Josh Hutcherson will reprise his role as young adventurer Sean Anderson in this follow-up to the 2008 worldwide hit Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D, the first live-action film ever to be shot in digital 3D. Dwayne Johnson stars as Sean’s stepfather, Hank Parsons; Michael Caine as Sean’s grandfather, Alexander Anderson; Vanessa Hudgens and Luis Guzman as a father-daughter tour guide team; and Kristin Davis as Sean’s mom, Liz Anderson.
The new journey begins when Sean receives a coded distress signal from a mysterious island where no island should exist — a place of strange life forms, mountains of gold, deadly volcanoes, and more than one astonishing secret. Unable to stop him from going, Sean’s new stepfather joins the quest. Together with a helicopter pilot and his beautiful, strong-willed daughter, they set out to find the island, rescue its lone inhabitant and escape before seismic shockwaves force the island under the sea and bury its treasures forever.
