In this follow-up to the 2008 worldwide hit “Journey to the Center of the Earth,” the new 3D family adventure “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island” begins when young Sean Anderson (Josh Hutcherson, reprising his role from the first film) receives a coded distress signal from a mysterious island where no island should exist.  It’s 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, Hank (Dwayne Johnson), joins the quest.  Together with a helicopter pilot (Luis Guzmán) and his beautiful, strong-willed daughter (Vanessa Hudgens), 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.

“Journey 2: The Mysterious Island,” is directed by Brad Peyton (“Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore”).  It also stars Michael Caine as Sean’s grandfather, Alexander Anderson, and Kristin Davis as Sean’s mom, Liz Anderson.

The film is produced by Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson, and Charlotte Huggins, from a screenplay by Brian Gunn & Mark Gunn, story by Richard Outten and Brian Gunn & Mark Gunn.  Serving as executive producers are Richard Brener, Michael Disco, Samuel J. Brown, Marcus Viscidi, Michael Bostick and Evan Turner.  David Tattersall (“Gulliver’s Travels”) is the director of photography; Bill Boes (“Fantastic Four”), the production designer; David Rennie (“National Treasure: Book of Secrets”), the editor; Denise Wingate (“Wedding Crashers”), the costume designer; and Academy Award© nominee Boyd Shermis (“Poseidon”), the visual effects supervisor.  Music is composed by Andrew Lockington.

“Journey 2: The Mysterious Island” is a New Line Cinema presentation of a Contrafilm production and will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

  1. My kids and I have been eagerly awaiting a sequel to Journey to the Center of the Earth!! My kids are 5 and they love "The Trevor & Josh" movie! We're bummed that Brendan Fraser won't be in it, but we love Dwayne Johnson too from some of our other favorite movies (Scorpion King & Game Plan)! Never saw Journey in 3D, so we're very excited to see this one in 3D!!!
