In case you had any worries that indie darling Josh Hutcherson won’t be action hero-ready in time for March’s The Hunger Games, look no farther than Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. Reprising his character Sean Anderson from 2008’s Journey to the Center of the Earth, Hutcherson enlists Dwayne Johnson to play his mother’s boyfriend, who helps Sean search for his missing grandfather (Michael Caine). They crash land on a mythical, Avatar-meets-Jurassic Park-style island populated by terrifyingly disproportionate animals, fearless adventurers, and a whole lot of goop. Action Hero 101 from The Rock? Not too shabby. See the full, pec-popping trailer after the jump.
Joining Hutcherson, Johnson, and Caine in the eclectic cast are Vanessa Hudgens, Luis Guzmán, and Kristin Davis. The Journey resumes Feb. 10, 2012.
