Trailers – Not sure how this remake is going to turn out. It has possibilities. This time, instead of a board game, four High School students trying to play Jumangi get sucked into a video game as their chosen avatars. The synopsis of the movie is:
In a brand new Jumanji adventure, four high school kids discover an old video game console and are drawn into the game’s jungle setting, literally becoming the adult avatars they chose. 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.
It may well be successful just based upon the actors involved. The film is scheduled to premier in December 2017.
