During filming Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, ComingSoon.net had a chance to talk with Josh and his co-star Vanessa Hudgens about their new project. Read the interview below and tell me what you think! ;-)
Q: Is it true that both you’ve been injured on set all ready?
Josh Hutcherson: Slightly. Not injured. Hurt, I’d say. Injury I think is a long term thing. We were doing a scene at this place called Eternity Beach which is a beautiful location and there’s this little cave that we kind of go in and check out. We got into the cave and did that scene and cut and coming back out they were like, ‘Watch your heads?’ I was like, ‘Oh, I’m not that tall. I’m not going to hit on anything,’ but I stepped on a little bump, I guess and then I hit the top of my head so hard I fell straight to the ground. I didn’t remember the fall and stuff. I just remember hitting my head and then being on the ground. Then Dwayne was like, ‘Oh, my God, are you okay?’
Vanessa Hudgens: I was a few feet away and heard a massive thump. That’s never a good thing! Then we were shooting a scene down on the same beach and there are just lava rocks everywhere. I was walking backwards. Very smart. Before I knew I was on the floor. I got up and brushed it off like nothing happened and then later on someone pointed at my leg and said, ‘Is that real blood or fake blood?’ Now I have a beautiful scar to show for it. We’ll always remember this movie. It’ll always be a part of me.
Q: Were you guys glad to get into the jungle and do the down and dirty stuff?
Josh: Totally. It’s really fun. We’ve been covered in mud now for most of the entire movie, which sounds like fun at the beginning, but then after about day thirty of being in mud it’s like, ‘I’m sort of over it.’ But we’ve been all these beautiful places and it’s usually really nice out. For me, I’m personally a huge fan of rainy weather. So I’m loving this right now.
Not long after the first trailer for Journey 2: The Mysterious Island hit the web, Warner Bros. has released a new featurette for the sequel to Journey to the Center of the Earth. Watch the video below to know what they prepared for us! ;-)
Plot: In this follow-up to the 2008 worldwide hit “Journey to the Center of the Earth,” the new 3D family adventure “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island” begins when young Sean Anderson (Josh Hutcherson, reprising his role from the first film) receives a coded distress signal from a mysterious island where no island should exist. It’s 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.
Journey 2: The Mysterious Island hits theaters on February 10th.
Today, MTV posted another part of their interview with Josh. Josh answers three questions, that are obviously related to currently the biggest project, The Hunger Games. Read this part below, and if you live in USA, you can watch the video with the interview. Are you excited? ;-)
MTV: What can you tell us about that costume in the arena?
Josh Hutcherson: The costumes in the arena are very practical, which they had to be, not only for the purpose of the characters but also for us as actors because sometimes it was 95 degrees in the forest, and you’re running around and you want to make sure you’re wearing the right clothes and the appropriate attire and the right kind of shoes and everything. So we made it very real.
MTV: What about the one that is on fire?
Hutcherson: The one that’s on fire, I don’t want to say anything about that yet, you’ll have to wait for it. It’s very cool, I promise you. It’s very cool.
MTV: Have you been following any of the fan fervor surrounding the film?
Hutcherson: Obviously the fans are crazy about it, which I’m really excited for them to see it. But for me, I stay away from a lot of that stuff, just because I don’t really look at it all that much. But I hear some things people are saying, and it’s pretty cool. It’s exciting to hear people are that interested in something you’re doing, so it’s a little nerve-racking, but I’m onboard. The fans for “The Hunger Games,” they’re die-hard. They’re the best fans in the world so I’m really excited for them to see the movie.
Finally! Examiner.com website has posted HD video with today’s interview with Josh on ‘Good Morning America’! For all of you who wasn’t able to watch it via livestream today morning, here it is:
I see that Josh had a lot of fun! Anyway, All these screaming fans! Awwwwwww!!!! Hahahaha, great video.
I’ve also added 19 medium quality pictures of Josh from today. He signed autographs and posed with fans before making an appearance on ‘Good Morning America’! Check the pictures out in photo gallery!
TV Appearances: Good Morning America, November 14th (19MQ)
I’ve been thinking about updating photo gallery with screen captures of The Hunger Games trailer, because I know that you would like to make icons, twitter backgrounds, pictures for your tumblr, etc. so high quality will be perfect to use. So, I’ve just added only 13 high quality screen captures to the photo gallery. Enjoy! ;-)
