There is a two in the title for this new movie. Yes, it is cleverly placed but the film is also a sequel. Huh? A sequel? To what?
It’s a sequel to the Brendan Fraser film Journey to the Center of the Earth which game out in 2008. Beyond being based on another Jules Verne novel, the film also brings back Josh Hutcherson as the lead kid, Sean Anderson.
This time Sean’s grandfather is lost and he believes that his grandpa (Michael Caine) has found Verne’s Mysterious Island. He teams up with his mom’s boyfriend to hunt down Caine. The boyfriend is played by Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. They also hook up with Luis Guzman and Vanessa Hudgens. There’s also a pug named Ruby.
Journey 2: The Mysterious Island is due out on February 10, 2012.
