After finding some of his brothers books about a volcanic island, Trevor (Brendan Fraser) and his nephew (Josh Hutcher) embark on a journey to the ends of the earth, where they realize that there's more the world than anyone has ever seen.

With no road map or directions, it's insatiable curiosity that drives these two on their voyage, with the help of Hannah, a guide that shows them the secrets of far-off places. The three embark on a fun and risky adventure filled with gripping 3D special effects bound to reel in audiences.

Directed by Eric Breving the story somersaults into the realm of action and adventure, but leaves room for romance, and takes the viewer into the belly of a volcano, where the bold cinematography matches the fine acting to create a marvelous world.

So, if you're tired of the hustle and bustle of city life, busy streets, and urban jungles, treat yourself to a trip that'll take you to the center of the earth. What awaits you are giant flying fish, dinosaurs, and a myriad of wild creatures that will make you feel like you're part of a whole new world.
