Visionary scientist Trevor Anderson (Brendan Fraser - CRASH, THE MUMMY) is a science professor whose untraditional hypotheses have made him the laughing stock of the academic community. During a scientific expedition in Iceland, accompanied by his nephew Sean (Josh Hutcherson) and their beautiful local guide, Hannah (Anita Briem), the trio are unexpectedly trapped in a cave. Unfortunately their only escape leads them deeper and deeper into the depths of the Earth.
Travelling through pristine, uncharted worlds, the trio comes face-to-face with surreal and unimaginable creatures that have never been seen before including man-eating plants, giant flying piranha, glow birds and terrifying dinosaurs from days past. The adventurers soon realize that as volcanic activity increases around them, they must find a way back to the Earth's surface before it is too late.
With spectacular photo-real environments and revolutionary new filmmaking techniques, JOURNEY TO THE CENTRE OF THE EARTH is an epic, family adventure that takes audiences directly into the heart of our heroes' voyage, bringing them along for a wild, visceral ride, as these three explorers plunge deep into a strange new realm beneath the Earth's surface where they embark on an amazing voyage and find awe-inspiring sites amidst grave danger.
JOURNEY TO THE CENTRE OF THE EARTH marks the big screen directorial debut of Academy Award-winning visual effects veteran Eric Brevig (TOTAL RECALL, PEARL HARBOR) from a screenplay by Michael Weiss and Jennifer Flackett & Mark Levin.
