Are you excited to venture into the world of Jumanji? Sound off in the comments below.
In the brand new adventure Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, the tables are turned as four teenagers are sucked into the world of Jumanji.
When four high-school kids discover an old video game console with a game they’ve never heard of – Jumanji – they are immediately drawn into the game’s jungle setting, literally becoming the avatars they chose: gamer Spencer becomes a brawny adventurer (Dwayne Johnson); football jock Fridge loses (in his words) “the top two feet of his body” and becomes an Einstein (Kevin Hart); popular girl Bethany becomes a middle-aged male professor (Jack Black); and wallflower Martha becomes a badass warrior (Karen Gillan). What they discover is that you don’t just play Jumanji – you must survive it. To beat the game and return to the real world, they’ll have to go on the most dangerous adventure of their lives, discover what Alan Parrish left 20 years ago, and change the way they think about themselves – or they’ll be stuck in the game forever…
Directed by Jake Kasdan, the film stars Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, Jack Black, Rhys Darby, Morgan Turner, Tom Matheson, Bobby Cannavale and Nick Jonas.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle will be released in theaters on December 20, 2017.
10 Saturday Morning Cartoons That Could Make Successful Movies
If the Smurfs or Transformers movies have taught us anything, old Saturday morning cartoons are the new grade-A meat for the movie studios. Cartoons can be turned into animated movies, just look at the success of the Spongebob Squarepants movies, but they can also make successful live-action adaptations. Well, with Power Rangers coming out soon, an idea so silly it might as well have been a Saturday morning cartoon it’s time for studio execs to take a look at some of these hidden classics. There’s clearly a lot of money to be made adapting beloved children franchises.
I want to point out a key word to all of you guys in case you get mad at my list. I don’t necessarily know if all of these cartoons could make good movies, but I’m pretty sure they could turn a profit and be considered successful. Some of these can be enjoyable and they’re ones you might not necessarily expect. If I forgot about your favorite Saturday morning cartoon, head to the comment section and let me know!
