Journey 2: The Mysterious Island Trailer: One of These Things Is Not Like the Other
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson joking about the Titanic. Luiz Guzman flying a helicopter while wearing a mini guitar. Future Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson and Vanessa Hudgens riding a giant flying bumblebee. Michael Caine. If you chose "Michael Caine" as the thing that does not make sense in the trailer for Brad Peyton's 3-D Journey to the Center of the Earth sequel, you would be correct. Ahead though, to over-sized vomiting insects, over-serious line readings and Oscar winner Michael Caine!
For those of you who didn't see 2008's Journey to the Center of the Earth, Hutcherson starred as a 13-year-old who spends a week searching for his missing father with his volcanologist uncle (Brendan Fraser) -- a mission that takes them to the, you guessed it, center of the Earth. This time around though, Hutcherson's character Sean is on a different mission -- to track down his missing grandfather (Caine) with the help of his new stepfather (Dwayne Johnson), a cute love interest (Vanessa Hudgens) and Luis Guzman -- a mission that takes him to, you guessed it again, a mysterious island. Two words, Sean's family: microchip implants!
Journey 2 arrives in theaters February 10.
VERDICT: To paraphrase Luis Guzman's character, if Journey 2: The Mysterious Island is heaven, I'll wait outside.
