The world has a lot of strange and interesting islands. New Zealand, for instance, is a pretty mysterious island. Japan is also fairly mysterious. And don't even get us started about Staten Island.
But when you have an island that features mountains of gold, bees the size of Volkswagens and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's steel-hard pecs -- not to mention "The Hunger Games" star Josh Hutcherson -- then you have to agree that "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" may just top them all.
"Journey 2," of course, implies that there was a "Journey 1," and in this case it's referring not to the legendary rock band (sorry, Randy Jackson) but instead to the family-friendly 2008 3-D adventure "Journey to the Center of the Earth." This time around, they aren't going anywhere near the center of the Earth, with the destination instead being a completely different Jules Verne story, "The Mysterious Island."
Said island contains a bunch of amazing and weird things, but one thing it does not have is the star of the first movie, Brandon Fraser. Instead, we are treated to The Rock, Selena Gomez and Michael Caine, as well as returning young stud Hutcherson.
So is that a net gain? Take a look at the new trailer for "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island," courtesy of Yahoo! Trailers, and judge for yourself:
