“Jumanji Welcome to the Jungle”, Sony Pictures has just released the first and awaited for 'Jumanji: Welcome to the jungle', sequel to the acclaimed film that starred Robin Williams in 1995. On this occasion the characters of the film, which stars Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart and Karen Gillan, are transported to the mysterious and wild jungle that is inside the magical board game.
22 years after the successful film starring Robin Williams, is almost here his sequel, 'Jumanji: Welcome to the jungle'. In this occasion, the protagonists are Dwayne Johnson, Black Jack, Kevin Hart and Karen Gillan and they change the traditional board game by a videojuego.
Sony has published the first trailer and, as social networks have shown, it seems that it has not had as much support as expected. Jack Black himself announced that they had made "a new 'Jumanji', very different from the original" and undoubtedly some netizens have seen the small advance too different.
To Dwayne Johnson we will see him become the avatar of a video game in 'Jumanji: Welcome to the jungle', his next movie, which just released the first advance.
The film, which hits theaters on December 22, will be directed by Jake Kasdan and has four screenwriters, namely Chris McKenna, Erik Sommers, Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg.
#4 A great release date: December 20, 2017
In the new adventure, four new players begin a new game that will transport them to the world of Jumanji. The meek Spencer becomes a valiant explorer (Johnson); the burly Fridge becomes a little genius (Kevin Hart); the popular Bethany happens to be a wise teacher (Jack Black), and the sportswoman Martha happens to be an Amazonian warrior (Karen Gillan). From there they will not be able to leave until the game finishes. While they will have to face the animals and other traps of the forest. In 1995, actor Robin Williams and director Joe Johnston triumphed with a fantastic film called "Jumanji", which became one of the most representative works of cinema in the 90s.
With a budget of 65 million dollars, the tape shot its collection until the 263 million dollars. Reason that has now encouraged Hollywood to release the second part of the film, 22 years later.
The new film is a radical change from the original, in which the world in which they moved Robin Williams, Bonnie Hunt and Kirsten Dunst suffered incredible alterations as they played the game "damn".
Now it adapts to new technologies, at least in part. Four very different students meet by chance an old console and are set to play a strange video game called "Jumanji". When each one chooses their characters, they really immerse themselves in the jungle of the game and become Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, Jack Black, Kevin Hart.
From what can be seen in this first trailer, the new film introduces much more humor, and there are doses of action remarkably more spectacular than its predecessor 22 years ago, also thanks to the best technical means.
