Where Peeta from “The Hunger Games” is still a kid and goes on a wild adventure with his stepfather played by The Rock of wrasslin’ fame. This, of course, is a direct sequel to the 2008 movie “Journey to the Center of the Earth” starring Brendan Fraser, who apparently had other, better things to do (like starring in bad movies with talking animals) than reprise his character in the sequel, so the series has been re-imagined with Hutcherson’s Sean character as the main lead. Plus, The Rock and that girl from “High School Musical” who likes taking nekkid pictures of herself are in it, too.
Young adventurer 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 shock waves force the island under the sea and bury its treasures forever.
Starring Josh Hutcherson, Dwayne Johnson, Michael Caine, Vanessa Hudgens, Luis Guzman, Kristin Davis and directed by Brad Peyton.
