Warner Home Video has announced DVD, Blu-ray/DVD Combo and 3D/2D Blu-ray/DVD Combo releases of Journey 2: The Mysterious Island for June 5th. Extra material on the DVD release includes deleted scenes and a gag reel. The Blu-ray releases will also include an Are You Strong Enough To Survive Mysterious Island feature, and an UltraViolet digital copy of the film.
Journey 2: The Mysterious Island is the follow-up to the 2008 hit. The new journey begins when young adventurer Sean (Josh Hutcherson) 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 Hank (Dwayne Johnson) joins the quest. Together with a helicopter pilot (Luis Guzman) and his beautiful, strong-willed daughter (Vanessa Hudgens), 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.
Hank, in an attempt to bond with his stepson, solves the code which tells them to look for Treasure Island, Gulliver’s Travels, and Verne’s Mysterious Island and Sean suggest that they were all based on the same island. Hank then tears out each page with a map in each book and shines a light through them to make one map that reveals the islands co-ordinates. Sean believes that his long lost grandfather was the one behind the transmission, and that he has discovered the island. Sean and Hank immediately set out for the island of Palau. Both Hank and his wife, Liz, don’t believe anything that Sean is convinced of, such as the fact that the Mysterious Island could exist and that his grandfather discovered it, but after Hank considers that this trip could help bring him closer to his usually anti-social step son, the couple decide it would be ideal.
Journey 2 is simply another escape filled fantasy that’s fun for the family. Dwayne Johnson does a great job and gets to act with the talented Michael Caine and Kristin Davis. Look for this film starting June 5, 2012.
