A new group of teens has to experience the threatening world of Jumanji only now, it’s not a board game anymore. Only 30+ year olds play those things, right? The game magically transforms itself into a video game instead and quite honestly, you’ll be glad it did. Once sucked into the game, the teens find themselves transformed into different people: Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan, and they have to figure out their strengths and weaknesses to survive the game’s perils, as well as the mustache-twirling villainy of Bobby Cannavale. But will teens as different as they all are figure out how to relate to each other? Basically, if The Breakfast Club got sucked through a wormhole into an alternate universe and became badasses (well, some of them), you’ll be VERY surprised to hear what Chris, Michael, JC, and Lara have to say about this movie.
