Hard to believe Josh Hutcherson is playing essentially a kid in “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island”, while he’ll be running from killer mutated dogs and other killin’ things (and people) in Gary Ross’ “The Hunger Games”. But hey, that’s why they call it acting, right? Anyways, take a look behind-the-scenes of “Journey 2″ with Hutcherson, The Rock, and the rest of the cast in this new behind-the-scenes featurette for “The Mysterious Island”, which, I’m guessing, takes place on some sort of island. That’s mysterious. Call it a hunch.
The follow-up to the 2008 hit Journey To The Center Of The Earth, JOURNEY 2: THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND begins when young adventurer Sean (Josh Hutcherson) 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 (Dwayne Johnson) joins the quest. Together with a helicopter pilot (Luis Guzman) 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.
Starring Josh Hutcherson, Dwayne Johnson, Michael Caine, Vanessa Hudgens, Luis Guzmán, Kristin Davis and directed by Brad Peyton.
Your journey begins January 27, 2012.
