Jumanji Welcome to the Jungle Trailer

The first trailer for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle introduced the core concept that is driving this combination of reboot and sequel. Yes, there is still a mystical game that puts children in harm’s way by plunging them into jungle-centric adventures. But while the original movie (and the original storybook) were based around a magical board game, the new film updates it to a video game…and goes a little Big on us by dropping the kids into adult-sized avatars shaped like Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, and Karen Gillan.

If you’re 12 years old, that probably sounds pretty rad. If you’re not…well, let’s watch the new Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle trailer before we say anything else.

Sony is reorganizing its release calendar, and that means a few big titles are getting shifted around. First off, The Dark Tower has been postponed from February 2017 to summer 2017, as we reported earlier today… and it’s taking over Jumanji‘s slot, which means Jumanji is now getting pushed to Christmas 2017.

Meanwhile, Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver has gone from being a spring movie to being a summer movie, and The Equalizer 2 — the first sequel of Denzel Washington’s entire career — is getting delayed one year to fall 2018. Get full details on the Jumanji release date and more below.  Read More »

Jumanji Sequel Plot

The primary cast of the Jumanji sequel from Sony Pictures has already been confirmed with Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillan taking the lead roles. In addition, a photo from the set recently showed us how they’ll all look in the jungles of the infamous board game. However, it turns out that this new take on Jumanji has been given a contemporary twist.

As news of four new young cast members hit the web this weekend, so did rumored details of what the Jumanji sequel is about. Rather than focusing on a board game, this time a group of kids get sucked into a video game version of Jumanji. So how do our previously announced cast members come into play? Find out about the Jumanji sequel plot details and the young new cast members after the jump. Read More »

Jumanji 2 Set Video

Production on the new Jumanji is underway over in the jungles of Hawaii. Kevin Hart just recently posted a first look at our main characters played by himself, Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan and Jack Black. Now it’s Hart’s Central Intelligence co-star’s turn to share a behind-the-scenes look at the movie that was initially thought to be reboot, but is actually a sequel. In fact, it sounds like it’s more of a legacy-quel since the movie will pay tribute to Robin Williams’ character in some capacity.

In addition, Jumanji 2 has added some new cast members, including Flight of the Conchords and What We Do In The Shadows star Rhys Darby, and Karen Gillan revealed a tease about why her character is so scantily clad in the dangerous jungle. See all that and Dwayne Johnson’s Jumanji 2 set video after the jump. Read More »
