Check out the Journey 2: The Mysterious Island 3D synopsis:
Josh Hutcherson will reprise his role as young adventurer Sean Anderson in this exciting follow-up to the 2008 worldwide hit Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D, the first live-action film ever to be shot in digital 3D.
Dwayne Johnson stars as Sean’s stepfather, Hank Parsons and Michael Caine as Sean’s grandfather, Alexander Anderson.
Vanessa Hudgens and Luis Guzman will star as a father-daughter tour guide team and Kristin Davis as Sean’s mom, Liz Anderson.
The new journey begins when 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 shockwaves force the island under the sea and bury its treasures forever.
Let us just remind you that the original 1959 version of Journey to the Center of the Earth starred James Mason and Pat Boone and earned Oscar nominations for best art direction, best effects and best sound.
This time, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island
will be shot in 3D, with the targeted release date September 23rd, 2011.
