Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle will show audiences a new look at the rainforest presented in the 1995 cult classic with a video game-based premise. Another trailer for the sequel will arrive in the near future, according to a new report.
Trailer-Track is reporting that the next trailer for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle will arrive soon. The trailer was classified today, and runs for 2 minutes and 23 seconds. While this likely means that the trailer will hit sometime soon, it seems like the most natural fit to attach the trailer is The LEGO Ninjago Movie, which comes out a few weeks from now – in the meantime, most of the new releases between then and now are R-rated.
The film’s premise is as follows:
“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; football jock Fridge loses (in his words) “the top two feet of his body” and becomes an Einstein; popular girl Bethany becomes a middle-aged male professor; and wallflower Martha becomes a badass warrior. 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…”
Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle will start its fun and games on December 20, 2017. The film’s cast includes Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Karen Gillan, Nick Jonas, Alex Wolff, Ser’Darius Blain, Madison Iseman, Morgan Turner, Maribeth Monroe, Missi Pyle, Purab Kohli, Rhys Darby, Tim Matheson, Marc Evan Jackson, and Bobby Cannavale. Archive footage of Robin Williams will be used in the film.
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!
