Vanessa Hudgens, Josh Hutcherson, Dwayne Johnson & Luis Guzman’s Official ‘Journey 2 the Mysterious Island’ Video Interviews

1, 2012 11:15am

Hitting theaters next week, Journey 2 the Mysterious Island stars Dwayne Johnson, Josh Hutcherson, Vanessa Hudgens, Luis Guzman and the epically epic Michael Caine.

A continuation of the “Journey” series that initially starred Brendan Fraser, “Hunger Games” star Hutcherson provides the link to the previous, commercially successful, installment. While the first “Journey” was a pioneer in the 3D cinema roll-out, this new film enters theaters in a much more 3D friendly environment. Shot in 3D with a storyline planned out for maximum effect, the visuals of this film should be GORGEOUS. The fact that the Mysterious Island is one on which our natural laws are reversed (bees the size of helicopters, flowers the size of trees), will also provide an entertaining eyeful.

Check out the official studios with four of the film’s lead actors below. Shooting in Hawaii must have been tough. Acccchhh, poor things.

Tom Colicchio (Chef/Restaurateur/Star of “Top Chef”) appears in and executive-produced the documentary film “Finding North” by co-directors Lori Silverbush and Kristi Jacobson. The team behind the film stopped by the Studio at Sundance the morning after their world premiere in Park City.

“Finding North” tackles the issue of food insecurity in the US, bringing awareness to the fact that, for 1 in 6 people in this country, putting a meal on the table is a challenge. That food should be a human right, a basic necessity, in a country as wealthy as the U.S. is a given, but the government needs to be reminded of their responsibilities.

Oscar-nominated actors William H. Macy (“Fargo,” “Shameless”) and John Hawkes (“Winter’s Bone,” “Deadwood”) stopped into the Studio at Sundance to talk about their film “The Surrogate,” a film already getting acclaim and already being talked about for the Best Actor race for John Hawkes for 2013!

This real-life story of Mark O’Brien, trapped in an iron lung with the ability to move just three muscles, engages a surrogate to help him lose his virginity before he dies.

Also starring Helen Hunt, Moon Bloodgood and Rhea Perlman, the film was bought by indie superstar outfit Fox Searchlight, so will definitely be coming to screens in 2012.
