"Journey 2" set visit: Josh Hutcherson & Vanessa Hudgens

Josh Hutcherson's got a good thing going in Hollywood: along stints with compelling dramatic films ("The Kids Are All Right") and a potential blockbuster franchise ahead ("The Hunger Games"), he's also got a shot-in-3D sequel to his hit 2008 film "Journey to the Center of the Earth". For "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island", Vanessa Hudgens is at his side (not to mention Dwayne Johnson and Michael Caine), and ComingSoon joined the young actors in the tropical rainforests of Hawaii to get the scoop on their collaboration.

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.

Were you guys glad to get into the jungle and do the down and dirty stuff?
Hutcherson: 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.

Do you feel a big sense of responsibility to this film now that you're sort of the sole one from the original?
Hutcherson: Not really. I mean, I'm really proud to be the returning one, but the cast that we have now is such a cool hodgepodge of different cultures coming together with Michael Caine, Dwayne and Luis Guzman, this kind of whole weird, like, 'What? He's in it and He's in it?' So, it's this cool mix and I'm really proud of it, for sure.

Luis is a great character actor. How is your relationship with him on and off screen and how did you guys work that?
Hudgens: Luis is unlike anyone I've ever met before. He's just so funny. He's always cracking jokes and is always doing improv, which is a lot of fun. He's just an easy guy to get along with. You talk to him for a few minutes and you can't help but love him.
Hutcherson: He's so funny. Brad [Peyton], our director will give him some direction and he's like, 'I'll think about it. I don't know.' It's so funny.

This is the second really physical film for you in a row. Did "Sucker Punch" and all the training you did for that get you ready for this?
Hudgens: It's completely different. That was like shooting choreographed with all the fight sequences and firing guns. There's definitely no guns in this one...
Hutcherson: Except for The Rock's arms. I love calling him "The Rock."
Hudgens: We're riding bees in this one. So, no, it's different. This is fun. This is just kind of like "funning" around and having a good time. It doesn't hurt as much.
