‘Jumanji: The Next Level’ Trailer: Kevin Hart and The Rock Return For Another Wild Ride

‘Jumanji: The Next Level’ Trailer: Kevin Hart and The Rock Return For Another Wild Ride
Kevin Hart, Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, and Jack Black are thrown into another crazy adventure in the first trailer for Sony Pictures’ “Jumanji: The Next Level.” The film is the sequel to 2017’s “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” a surprise Christmas smash hit that went on to earn $404 million in the U.S. and a huge $964 million worldwide. The film set a domestic record for Sony and passed “Spider-Man” to become the studio’s highest-grossing U.S. release (unadjusted for inflation), which means the pressure is on for “The Next Level” to deliver the box office goods this upcoming holiday season.

In “The Next Level,” Hart, Johnson, Gillan, and Black return as their video game avatars while Ser’Darius Blain, Alex Wolff, Morgan Turner, and Madison Iseman once again play their original real-world counterparts. Nick Jonas and Colin Hanks are back as well, while new additions to the “Jumanji” franchise include Awkwafina,

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle enjoyed an enormously successful box office run across the last holiday season and into this year, going toe-to-toe with Star Wars: The Last Jedi on its way to $962 million in global box office receipts.

With those figures making it Sony’s second-biggest release of all time behind Skyfall ($1.1 billion), it came as no surprise whatsoever that the studio decided to fast track a third instalment in the Jumanji franchise for release at Christmas 2019.

Well, it seems the production dates have now been set, as Omega Underground is reporting that the as-yet-untitled film will shoot in Atlanta and Hawaii between January 21st and April 26th 2019.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle director gives an update on Jumanji 3

Last month, Dwayne Johnson officially confirmed that Jake Kasdan will be back in the director’s chair for next year’s sequel to the smash hit action adventure Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, and now the filmmaker has provided an update on the as-yet-untitled Jumanji 3 during an interview with Collider.

“The idea is to make the movie in the beginning of the year if we can get it all worked out,” said Kasdan. “We have not started figuring out the locations yet. Hawaii was a big part of Welcome to the Jungle and we love Hawaii, so it would be great to go back there. I think we’re getting very close to cracking the script. It’s a complicated little puzzle, but I think we got some good stuff cooking.”

'Incredibles 2' Delivers Record-Shattering $180 Million Opening Weekend

'Incredibles 2' Delivers Record-Shattering $180 Million Opening Weekend
Disney and Pixar's Incredibles 2 delivered a massive opening weekend debut, not only shattering the previous opening weekend record for an animated film, but finishing with one of the top ten openings of all-time for a film of any genre. Additionally, Warner Bros.'s R-rated comedy Tag debuted in third position while Sony's Superfly fell short of expectations. With an estimated $180 million, Disney and Pixar's Incredibles 2 topped the previous opening weekend for an animated film set two years ago by Finding Dory with $135 million. On top of that, the film's opening weekend is the eighth largest all-time, topping the $179.1 million opening for 2016's Captain America: Civil War, which went on to gross over $500 million at the domestic box office. As for Incredibles 2's domestic future, an "A+" CinemaScore and an opening of this size seems to suggest a $500+ million domestic performance is in the offing, which

Cannes 2018: ‘Sextape’ Review: Dir. Antoine Desrosières (2018)

Sextape review (À Genoux Les Gars): Antoine Desrosières brings this perplexing drama/ tragi-comedy revolving around sexual awakening and consent to the screen, a film screening under the Un Certain Regard sidebar here at Cannes.

Sextape review by Paul Heath, May 2018.

Sextape review

Antoine Desrosières aims his co-written script and lens at a group of young people within the French-Arabic community of France. It’s a film with some very important things to say – horrific revenge porn, homophobia and the misogynistic ‘youth of today’ are all contained within – but its tone all seems to have been lost in translation for this Anglo-cinema watcher looking on.

The story revolves around two sisters, Yasmina (Souad Arsane) and Rim (Inas Chanti), both of whom have ostensibly been brought up in a strict household – they sleep in the same bed, and it’s clear from the outset that as well as siblings, are also the best of friends,

Jumanji 3 Just Got a 2019 Release Date

Jumanji 3 Just Got a 2019 Release Date
Jumanji 3, a sequel to last year's Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, has been announced by Sony Pictures with a Christmas-time 2019 release date.

One of the most surprisingly entertaining movies of last year was Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which ended up being a fun and heartwarming sequel / soft reboot to the original Jumanji from 1995. Rather than being a board game like the original, the new Jumanji took the form of a 90s video game, which added a clever new twist to the movie. Welcome to the Jungle certainly managed to stand out from the original, making itself into its own movie rather than serving as a rehash to the Robin Williams-led classic.

The announcement of a sequel doesn't come as too big of a surprise, considering the massive success Welcome to the Jungle had. The Jumanji sequel earned itself over $950 million globally, which was over triple the box office success of the first Jumanji.

The Secret Life of the Zoo review – basically Big Brother for the animal world

The series kicks off with procreation – orangutans sneak off to have babies, while tiny baby vampire crabs appear – but it’s a shame the camera fails to record the main event

Channel 4 has many of the key life events covered in its factual TV output. Birth (One Born Every Minute), childhood and school (The Secret Life of 4-year-olds; Educating Yorkshire), dating (First Dates) and work (The Job Interview). It looks like Sex Tape – expected some time this year – will cover the revenge-porn side of things. All it needs is a good death show then that’s it: everything important will be seen to.

The Secret Life of the Zoo attempts to do pretty much all of the above, except with captive animals. Not as interesting as proper in-the-wild natural history, because it’s basically Big Brother, rather than the real world. But it’s easier – and much cheaper – to make.

Dwayne Johnson thanks fans as Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle becomes Sony’s biggest ever domestic release

Despite coming under fire when it was first announced that a reboot of the beloved 1995 Robin Williams movie was in development, Sony scored a huge success with December’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, with the film proving a hit with audiences and critics alike.

As you’d expect, Sony has already announced a sequel which is being fast-tracked for release around Christmas 2019, and actor Dwayne Johnson has shared a brief update on his Instagram,

Karen Gillan discusses Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’s box office success

Sony Pictures scored a major hit with its recent reboot Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, with the film holding its own against Star Wars: The Last Jedi and pulling in a hefty $931 million at the worldwide box office.

Speaking to Screen Rant, actress Karen Gillan has been chatting about the success of the movie, which is Sony’s second-biggest domestic release behind 2002’s Spider-Man, and the studio’s second-biggest worldwide hit after 2012’s Skyfall.

“I think we all had confidence in it, but it was still a ballsy move to release up against Star Wars because that’s just, yeah, that’s like a crazy thing to do, I think,” said Gillan. “We all felt like it was a really strong film, but I don’t think any of us anticipated quite this level of success.

Review – Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Blu-ray Bonus Features

Tai Freligh reviews the bonus features on the Blu-ray release of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

I thoroughly enjoyed Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, so when the opportunity came up to review the home video bonus features ahead of the film’s release, I jumped at the chance. I was curious as to how they would address the original film with Robin Williams (hint: there’s a featurette for that!) and I wanted to see the gag reel because having seen a few movies now with Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, I knew it should be comedy gold (it wasn’t).

Like any home video release with more than just a trailer included on the DVD, the bonus features for Jumanji were hit and miss. There were several throwaway features, but what saved the whole lot was two features in particular.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle tops $900 million, now Sony’s second biggest movie of all time

Despite competition for tickets ramping up with the release of Marvel’s Black Panther, Sony’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has hit another box office milestone this weekend as the film passed the $900 million mark worldwide.

Domestically, the Jumanji sequel has now earned $377.6 million, making it Sony’s second-biggest North American release of all time behind 2002’s Spider-Man. Internationally, it has amassed $527 million, for a global haul of $904.6 million. Again, that is second only to Skyfall, which Sony distributed in 2012, with the Bond film earning $1.109 billion worldwide.

Welcome to the Jungle has certainly exceeded all expectations, particularly as it has found itself competing with Star Wars: The Last Jedi throughout its run, and Sony will be hoping for a repeat performance with the sequel, which the studio is fast-tracking for release in 2019.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle sequel finds its screenwriters

Given that it’s become Sony’s biggest ever non-Spider-Man hit, not to mention the highest-grossing domestic release of Dwayne Johnson’s career, it’s little surprise that the studio is looking to fast track a sequel to the blockbuster adventure comedy Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.

It was announced that month that Sony is planning on getting a sequel into cinemas in 2019, and now Deadline is reporting that Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner have signed on to pen the script, having developed the story with director Jake Kasdan. The duo both contributed to the screenplay for Welcome to the Jungle, and have also worked on another Sony project, the Spider-Man spinoff Venom.

Although Kasdan is yet to sign on to direct the sequel, he is expected to return for the follow-up, which will reunite stars Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillan.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle set to become Dwayne Johnson’s biggest ever domestic hit

Although it came in for a lot of flak when the project was first announced, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has proven to be a firm favourite both with critics and audiences alike.

This past weekend it topped the U.S. box office, becoming the first December release to hit #1 in February since James Cameron’s Titanic, and now the film finds itself just $300,000 shy of Furious 7’s $353 million North American haul, meaning it is close to become Dwayne Johnson’s biggest ever domestic hit.

Worldwide, Welcome to the Jungle has pulled in $855.7 million, so it will still trail both The Fate of the Furious ($1.236 billion) and Furious 7 ($1.516 billion) globally. Nevertheless, it’s still proven to be a very welcome hit for Sony, with the studio already announcing that it is in development on a sequel.

Why Was ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ So Successful?

There have been more than 20 years since the release of the original ‘Jumanji’ (1995) starring the iconic Robin Williams. Even though the movie was heavily panned by the critics (it has a score of 39 out of 100 from Metacritic.com and 51 out of 100 from Rotten Tomatoes) the audience loved it and it is considered as an all-time classic. Moreover, it made a massive amount of money in the worldwide box-office by earning an estimated $262,797,249 with a budget of $50 000 000. That is why it’s always a risky business to touch on such an insanely revered movie, adored by millions of fans around the world. When the idea of remaking ‘Jumanji’ was initially put on the table, there were tons of negative comments under Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s posts on the social media. Most of the folks out there were afraid that the WWE star turned actor and his ‘Seven Bucks Productions’ company
