Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle trailer arrives

June 29th, 2017 by Dave Bowling Comments

Sony’s Jumanji sequel/reboot has an official trailer at last.

And here it is. Fresh off the presses today, we get to see Karen Gillan in arse-kicking glory to the accompaniment of Guns n Roses:

Well, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t disappointed. Okay, Rock “The Dwayne” Johnson as a teenager trying not to have a breakdown is kinda amusing, but the rest? Hmm…

Anyway, let us know what you guys think. Leave us a comment below. Do you think it’ll live up the original, or is this just another needless sequel?

In the brand new adventure Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, the tables are turned as four teenagers in detention are sucked into the world of Jumanji. When they discover an old video game console with a game they’ve never heard of, they are immediately thrust into the game’s jungle setting, into the bodies of their avatars, played by Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan. What they discover is that you don’t just play Jumanji -Jumanji plays you. They’ll have to go on the most dangerous adventure of their lives, or they’ll be stuck in the game forever…

Dave was born at an early age to parents of both sexes. He has been a self-confessed geek for as long as he can remember, having been raised through the 80s on a steady diet of Doctor Who, Star Trek, Red Dwarf and (sigh) Knight Rider. Throw the usual assortment of Saturday morning cartoons into the mix and we have something quite exceptional: someone with an encyclopaedic knowledge of utter tosh; a love of giant robots and spaceships fighting; and the strange desire to leap tall buildings in a single bound while wearing his underpants over his trousers. The death ray is currently in the works and one day you shall all bow to him, his giant space station and fleet of funky orange space shuttles...
