Here's a movie you might have forgotten was coming out since not much has been said about it. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is coming out this summer and we now know that the first trailer is set to debut tomorrow. The official twitter account gave us a sneak peak of the trailer though and it looks pretty bonkers.

It looks pretty similar to the original movie if much more over the top. The animals look pretty fake though as far as CGI monsters are concerned which isn't promising for a movie that should be well into post production by now. It's also yet another movie that Dwayne Johnson is in and we have to wonder if we've hit our peak of him. He couldn't get people out to see Baywatch and how much of a draw is he personally to the Fast and Furious franchise?
Star Jack Black has already confirmed that the presence of the late Robin Willaims will be felt in this upcoming sequel. He's also clarified that the reason this movie will be different in that they will be "exploring this jungle and trying to conquer the game; it's life or death." Williams will be felt in the sense that the characters will find evidence of when he was trapped in the game.
In a brand new Jumanji adventure, the tables are turned as four teenagers are sucked into Jumanji's world – pitted against rhinos, black mambas and an endless variety of jungle traps and puzzles. To survive, they'll play as characters from the game: meek Spencer becomes a brave explorer (Dwayne Johnson); hulky jock Fridge becomes a tiny genius (Kevin Hart); It-girl Bethany becomes a bookworm professor (Jack Black); and unathletic Martha becomes an amazonian warrior (Karen Gillan). To beat the game and return to the real world with their lives, they'll have to start seeing things in an entirely different way.
Jumanji: Welcome to The Jungle will be released on December 22.
