Enjoyed the original and this looks like it'll be a fun family film, so will check it out. Kevin Hart is shit and hopefully won't bring the film down with his same-humor-in-everything tomfoolery

Do wonder if they're working on another Zathura with his new 'in game' format.

Disappointing trailer, tbh. I mean, I'm sure the cast will all do their jobs well, and the Rock seems to regularly play the "doesn't act like he looks" kind of character, but...

The original Jumanji had a kind of horror vibe to it at times. It wasn't just a normal jungle, it was a living nightmare. Alan in the original was a broken man due to what had happened to him there, but this just looks like a somewhat generic jungle, imo.

Robtard
It's not a direct remake, it's more of a modern re-envisioning with it being a video game and players emerging themselves (literally here) into the game.

But sure, I can see where this is definitely more of a generic tongue-in-cheek family flick while the original did have that 'scary' aspect, from the Great White Hunter trying to get Alan's head for a trophy, to the creepy giant blood sucking mosquitos.

edit: Was it just me, or did anyone else feel back then that the kid who played young Alan had a very punchable face?

The fact that they are referencing a Guns & Roses song for the title of the film isn't a good sign to me.

I haven't even watched the trailer yet.

Looks like fun.

making them video game characters is a good twist, but still... fck this.

the best part about Jumanji was the "game" coming into the real world. This takes all the stakes away.


I'd rather have a sequel that we never got.

shit, I'd take just another movie like Zathura.

marwash22
goddamnit. one of the related videos to that trailer was a remake of 'Flatliners'.

sigh.

Agreed.
I found nothing to complain about, or even shit on.

Kazenji
Looks like it could be good



i remember the movie getting some flack over, Karen Gillen's outfit..... erm

she's no different to the character of Lara Croft yet a game character gets a free pass.

I seriously cannot stand Kevin Hart or Jack Black.

They're neither comedians nor actors to me.

Remember The Rundown with Dwayne Jonson & Sean William Scott?

That was retitled, Welcome To The Jungle & possibly had the same theme song as well.

Kazenji
That one was retitled as "Welcome To The Jungle" for Australia and few other places.

Kevin Hart can be funny given the right situation (Secret Life of Pets was a good role for him, for example), but he seems a little out of place here, yes. The whole movie is sort of an annoying gimmick, though. And sure enough, I watched the trailer and Guns & Roses is full on in the trailer. Good lord..

I don't remember the marketing too well for that film and I don't even remember if the song was in the film.

Ah! Agree on it being nonsense.
The point of the outfit is pretty clear.

Agreed. Planning on seeing it. Laughed during the trailer a lot.

Think it looks fun

Dr Will Hatch
Yeah, this looks pretty fun. I love the original, and have no problems with this.

how old are you, Kaz?

Kazenji
What's my age got to do with anything?

The way some people behave on these forums, Feels like they're more younger then that.

Could not be age...maybe pop culture knowledge, or lack of, in regards to Lara?

Kazenji
***** please, I've been playing those games since the first game was released back in 1996

so i doubt its lack of pop culture knowledge in regards to that game character.

riv6672
So much for my being reasonable.
Guess you just suck at making any kind of coherent point on this subject.

Moving on. Enjoy the thread.

???

i already made my point back on page 1, I'm confused by what Marwash is exactly getting at with his one.

Patient_Leech
You guys are all about as much fun and reasonable as a bag of dicks.

Kazenji
Well if some folks aren't going to elaborate what they're trying to say, Screw em.

marwash22
you made the claim that Lara Croft got a free pass, which is completely false.

I asked how old you are because if you're under 25 it would make sense why you didn't know about the backlash the original games got for the way Lara was dressed.

apparently someone asking your age is a trigger 'cause you spazzed tf out and started calling me an SJW, which made no sense at all... hence my confusion.

This looks like horseshit

A generic action comedy with two of the most unfunny people on the planet. No thanks.

I'm glad someone finally said what I was thinking. It looks like pretty generic corporate comedy to me.

Esau Cairn
This definitely lacks the fun childhood fantasy of the 1st.

The animals, the house turning into a jungle, waterfall down the stairs...all a shame they couldn't catch that fantasy aspect in this one.

Waiting to see the all new Jumanji. Very excited
