I might ask “why has Jean Claude Van Damme never done a comedy?” and someone could scoff “dude, didn’t you see Cyborg? Or Double Impact? Or Street Fight—” and I’d say “shut up, why hasn’t he made a movie that was billed as a comedy?” That conversation can go around and around, but the truth remains: there really isn’t a JCVD movie that is obviously designed for laughs more than anything else.
Enter Welcome to the Jungle, in which the Muscles from Brussels plays a boot camp instructor at a team-building retreat where, naturally, things go very wrong. Check out the trailer below.
Welcome to the Jungle hits some theaters and VOD on February 7, 2014.
