Journey 2: The Mysterious Island (2012) Poster

Trivia

Sir Michael Caine in this movie searches for the home base of Captain Nemo, a character played by Caine in a previous adaptation of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1997).
The original Jules Verne story "A Journey to the Centre of the Earth" (1864), on which the preceding movie Journey to the Center of the Earth (2008) is loosely based, never had a sequel. However, another Jules Verne story "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" (1870), did have a sequel, called "The Mysterious Island", which was released in 1874 and followed five American men stranded on an island in the South Pacific, which is similar to a plot point in this movie.
There is another Jules Verne novel entitled "The Golden Volcano", which - although is set in the Canadian Arctic during the gold rush - spews gold nuggets when it erupts. This is likely where the mountains of gold came from for this movie.

Brendan Fraser, who starred in the first film in this series Journey to the Center of the Earth (2008), also starred in The Mummy Returns (2001) opposite Dwayne Johnson, who here takes over the position of Sean's father-figure.
Despite this film being a sequel to Journey to the Center of the Earth (2008), Josh Hutcherson is the only actor to return from that film.
