Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Trailer


Although Baywatch was a rare misfire for Dwayne Johnson, he is returning later this year with what will likely be one of the biggest hits of the holiday season (aside from Star Wars: The Last Jedi, of course). I’m talking about the upcoming Jumanji reboot / sequel, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which also finds him reteaming with his Central Intelligence co-star Kevin Hart. The movie co-stars Karen Gillan and Jack Black and it seems to be going out of its way to set itself apart from the original 1995 film, revolving around a video game instead of a board game with the added twist that a group of teenagers are stepping into avatars that are nothing like themselves. Directed by Jake Kasdan (Sex Tape, Bad Teacher), Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle hits theatres on Dec. 20th. Check out the first trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.

    So the cast in the above picture aren’t actually adults, but just teenagers in adult avatars? I’m sure this is going to make for some great jokes /s

  • Todd S. Gallows

    I’m sure it’ll do well. Can’t see myself contributing to its financial success, though.

  • Kasper

    With the visionary director behind such quality films as Sex Tape and Bad Teacher, how can this be anything but a masterpiece?

    Frank’s already dry heaving from that eyebrow raise by the Rock

  • Matt the Kiwi

    The Rock and Jack Black will kiss in this movie. And the censors that banned ‘Beauty and the Beast’ for it’s gay moment (Russia, Indonesia, etc) will have their heads explode because…is it really gay if Jack Black is actually a hot teenage girl!?

    Which sex tape, Kim K or Paris?

  • Sundial83

    Ah, so you caught on to this too, huh. Yeah, gonna be loads of controversy just in time for Christmas.

    Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel.

    issa joke

  • Flo Lieb

    So, Jumanji is a videogame now? I though this movie would reference Robin Wiliams’ character. So there are generation spawning gateways to Jumanji according to the respective technological development? Who’s designing those?

  • Lance

    it’s weird too because this looks like it is played differently altogether. They seemingly just turn on the game, pick an avatar and then they are sucked in. Robin Williams only got sucked in because he had a bad roll of the dice. He could have potentially played the game and never got sucked in.
