The Jumanji 3 has just changed up the game with the arrival of two new players in the form of…Danny DeVito and Danny Glover? The septuagenarians don’t seem like people who would get anywhere near video games, but they get pulled into the magical jungle world of Jumanji regardless in Jumanji: The Next Level, the highly anticipated sequel to Sony’s 2017 mega-hit Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.
This time, DeVito and Glover’s characters — two cranky grandpas who happen to be in the same house when the Jumanji game malfunctions — are swapped into the bodies of Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart.

This past weekend, Shazam! bolted into theaters as the next chapter in the ever-changing landscape of the DC Extended Universe, and it sounds like audiences were very pleased with what they got from the superhero played by Zachary Levi.

So it should come as no surprise that the Shazam box office haul took the movie to the #1 spot on the charts, and executive producer Dwayne Johnson couldn’t be more thrilled, especially since this paves the way for him to arrive in the DCEU as Shazam villain Black Adam.
