Jumanji’s Second Trailer Spoils Everything

It’s a common thing for trailers to show too much these days, especially with action movies like Jumanji. I come to expect it at this point. Still, I’m disappointed to walk away from this trailer feeling like I saw the best parts of the movie condensed to two minutes.

The sequel to the Robin Williams starring meme classic, Jumanji 2: Welcome to the Jungle trades in the board game for a video game. Four high school students warp inside and become the characters they chose to play as. Predictably, the geek becomes Dwayne Johnson, the popular girl becomes Jack Black, the athlete becomes Kevin Hart, and the nerdy girl becomes Karen Gillan in skimpy clothes.

Because of course. It’s a tale as old as time. Pretty sure one of the Amendments to the U.S. Constitution covers this.

It all looks fun enough. The action looks cool, the jokes mostly work for me, and the cast is one I’ll find entertaining, at least. You know where the movie will go from a mile away. Sometimes that’s okay. Just throw a fun cast and some decent action in a movie, and I’ll have a good time.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle releases on December 20 and is directed by Jake Kasdan, whose previous work includes the fantastic Walk Hard.
