This February WWE wrestler turned action-movie star Dwayne Johnson is looking to pull you out of the winter blahs (or maybe even Oscar blahs) with his latest adventure, the family-friendly Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. In this sequel to the box office hit Journey to the Center of the Earth, Johnson usurps Brendan Fraser as the requisite goofy, rough and tumble hero.
While the first Journey followed Trevor and Sean Anderson, an uncle and nephew team played by Fraser and Josh Hutcherson, on a wild rescue mission through the wild lost worlds hidden deep within the Earth, Journey 2 has the adventure-prone Sean on a similar but different mission. This time it's an uncharted island, a missing grandfather (Michael Caine), and his mom's boyfriend (Johnson) who is along for the ride. High School Musical's Vanessa Hudgens co-stars as a convenient and cute love-interest while Luis Guzman brings some additional comic relief as a boisterous, Hawaiian shirt-sporting helicopter pilot.
The first trailer boasted big adventure, giddy humor, and pecs poppin' in 3D, and the second played up the intrigue and danger of this Mysterious Island as well as the Lost City of Atlantis. Now the latest clip from Yahoo offers us a more playful side of Journey 2, with a closer look at its cuddlier residents.
Behold: butterflies with a wingspan broader than Guzman's performance! And an elephant that can conveniently fit into a chic handbag! On a serious note, can scientists please get on genetically engineering teacup elephants? They'd be a perfect fit for apartment-dwelling animal lovers.
Journey 2: The Mysterious Island opens nationwide February 10th in 2D, 3D and Imax 3D.
