Journey 3-D Trailer Online
Brendan Fraser heads to the Earth's core

A new trailer for Journey To The Centre of the Earth: 3D has gone online at Cineplex. You can see it here.

You will notice that this clip features rather a lot of shots of things flying toward the camera or looking down into deep gorges. That'll be because they're intended to leap out at you when you see this first 3D action movie with dorky glasses on – though we're not sure how we feel about experiencing Brendan Fraser spitting on us in three dimensions.

The film tells of a man who teaches his son about Jules Verne's book Journey To The Centre of the Earth and then takes him on a trip to discover that it is all true and our planet's core is full of dinosaurs and glowing birds, not just molten rock and temperatures too hot for anything but the most basic elements to avoid destruction.

This still has that manic quality shared by most Imax films, even though this is intended as a narrative experience and not just a gimmick. And the script is extremely cheesy ("Shut your trap!"). But we're always suckers for a 3D dinosaur, so it's really only fair to judge this once you're wearing '80s-looking spectacles.

Journey to the centre of the mirth
Saw the trailer in 3D before Beowulf, Brendan Frazer is the cheese beast. Quality, I love 3D, the 21st century fucking rocks man! More

Filled with popcorn movie logic. Cellphone reception in the centre of the Earth? And I'm pretty certain a fall like that would kill you, even if you land in water! Could be fun, though! More

Hmm, Don't Know Yet.
Okay, so it's got a lot of action and known stars in it and also it's 3-d but I still don't know if I like it or not. Sure it might be fun for kids and adults alike when it comes out for the summer hoildays but I won't be rushing to see it though. It might be good, it might be crap. I'm not sure but when it comes out, I will finally know. More

80's-looking? Surely you mean 50's-looking spectacles? More

Cheesy one liners? 3D dinosaurs? Brendan Frasier? Im fucking there! Seriously that looks pretty good, fine the story isnt original but neither is anything these days, and the previous journey to the centre of the earth books haven't been that good or original AS ITS BASED ON A FUCKING BOOK! Of course it isnt original. but nothing is! More

Story wise it will no doubt be the lowest of the low but visually, and lets be honest thats what you go to the IMAX to see, it will probably be mouth wateringly glorious. More

I like it!
It's massively cheesey, but this could be a decent evening's entertainment, with the big goofy glasses and all. More
