jumanji welcome to the jungle early buzz

Nostalgia-infused remakes are a dime a dozen, but successful ones are another story. Surprisingly, it seems like Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is the latter.

It’s a huge burden to live up to a Robin Williams performance, and one that is beloved by every ’90s kid at that. (Yes, I hold his Jumanji performance to be up there with his heartfelt comedic turn in Mrs. Doubtfire. Fight me.) But it seems like Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan are up to the task, delivering the laughs and the love toward Williams’ character in Jake Kasdan‘s sorta-sequel to the 1995 Jumanji movie.

Below, check out some of the Jumanji Welcome to the Jungle early buzz.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Featurette

You might not expect a movie like Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle to fit in with the spirit of other holiday movies that usually get released around Christmas time, but that’s exactly what Dwayne Johnson hoped to accomplish.

Go behind the scenes to see how they tried to accomplish that by checking out the featurette below. Read More »

Knight Rider Movie - John Cena & Kevin Hart

Hot on the heels of Knight Rider star David Hasselhoff hoping that Robert Rodriguez could direct him in a Logan-esque film adaptation of the beloved 1980s TV series featuring the Baywatch star as an aged Michael Knight, we have news on the development of a Knight Rider movie, but it’s not going to make David Hasselhoff happy at all.

The Weinstein Company is reportedly taking a crack at making a Knight Rider movie, but rather than taking a more serious approach, the project will follow in the footsteps of 21 Jump Street by making it an action comedy. Furthermore, they want to put John Cena behind the steering wheel as Michael Knight and they’re considering Kevin Hart to provide the voice of the talking car called KITT. Read More »

How do you go about updating Jumanji for 2017? By transforming that magical (and dangerous) board game of the title into a video game, of course. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is a sort-of sequel to Joe Johnston’s 1995 film, with Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, and Karen Gillan stepping in for Robin Williams. Since that film has its fair share of nostalgic fans, the first trailer for this sequel/reboot is surely going to undergo some scrutiny.

So let’s get the scrutinizing started.

Kevin Hart - The Great Outdoors Remake

John Hughes was a beloved, respected filmmaker known for writing and directing classics such as Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Pretty in Pink, The Breakfast Club and more. But there are plenty of movies that he scripted, only to have someone else direct them. Movies such as Mr. Mom, Home Alone and more had scripts from John Hughes, and now one of those scripts is getting the remake treatment.

The Great Outdoors from 1988 followed Chet and Connie Ripley (John Candy and Stephanie Faracy) and their two kids who were looking forward to a nice, relaxing weekend at a Wisconsin cabin away from the hustle and bustle of Chicago, but find their vacation interrupted by the arrival of Connie’s obnoxious brother-in-law Roman (Dan Aykroyd), his wife Kate (Annette Bening) and their two daughters. Now Universal has set Kevin Hart to start in a remake of the comedy.

Dying Laughing Trailer - Chris Rock

Following the trailer for the Showtime series I’m Dying Up Here, we have a look at another fascinating glimpse into the world of stand-up comedy, this time one from the real world.

Dying Laughing is a new documentary that feels like it should have been called I’m Dying Up Here, because it features one-on-one interviews with stand-up comedians like Jerry Seinfeld, Kevin Hart, Amy Schumer, Cedric The Entertainer, Russell Peters, the late Garry Shandling and more, all talking about their worst experiences on stage. These are the times when the bombed, died, crashed and all the other words which describe the worst thing that can happen to a comedian on stage: not getting laughs.

CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS

If you’re an adult, your most highly anticipated superhero movies of 2017 probably include the hard-R Logan, the grim and gritty Justice League, maybe the playful Spider-Man: Homecoming if you’re feeling young at heart. But if you’re a small child, that list might be topped by Captain Underpants, an animated feature based on the long-running book series by Dav Pilkey.

Normally, it’d seem a bad sign for the film’s own director to describe his leading man as “sheer stupidity,” but in this case it’s a positive — we are, after all, talking about a superhero famous for running around in his underpants. A Captain Underpants first look photo has just been revealed, and you can click on through to check it out.  Read More »
