Jumanji’s Official Trailer Throws a Good Cast Into the Jungle

In the “sequel I’m not sure anyone asked for” department, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle looks to re-imagine the 1995 Robin Williams movie using a modern take. After four high school kids find an old video game console while cleaning their school’s basement, the game sucks them inside the console where they become the avatars they chose when starting the game. Naturally this involves exploring a dangerous jungle.

And I’m sitting here waiting for good VR gaming.

Watch the trailer here, and tell us what you think in the comments below.

It looks like fun. Nothing particularly interesting, but you don’t need to work too hard to get people in a theater for this cast. Jack Black and Dwayne Johnson have a talent for making terrible movies highly watchable. And I suppose the jokes work alright. Little hint though, for aspiring writers and directors; just because you point out the silliness of something like Karen Gillan’s skimpy outfit doesn’t erase that it exists. Just saying.

If you’re looking for an amusing enough action-comedy romp, you can probably do much worse than Jumanji. Not every movie has to be Moonlight.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle hits theaters on December 20. If you’re looking for reasons to watch, a cast including Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Karen Gillan, Kevin Hart, Nick Jonas, and Maribeth Monroe should do the trick. Director Jake Kasdan also has a pretty nice track record as well. Consider dragging the family along for Christmas.
