In case you forgot, there were not one, but two 'Journey to the Center of the Earth' movies, and one of them starred Dwayne Johnson. And since everyone likes having their own franchise, Johnson will star in two more of these sequels, which have now hired the writers of 'The Conjuring.' We are now filled with the hope that perhaps these movies will take a dark turn and find Johnson and his young companions battling clapping ghosts.
It was a good idea replacing Brendan Fraser for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in the sequel to 2008's 'Journey to the Center of the Earth'. While Fraser did prove he could sell the first ('Journey 1' pulled in $242 million worldwide on a $60 million budget) and pleased most critics (62% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes), 'Journey 2: The Mysterious Island' has managed to pull in $242 million worldwide and is still selling out internationally. Why? People love The Rock. This is the only actor who can star in a movie called 'Tooth Fairy' and make it a box office success. The Rock will make you see his movie.
