How the 'Jumanji' Sequel Leveled Up Its Marketing

How the 'Jumanji' Sequel Leveled Up Its Marketing
The $962 million worldwide box office for 2017’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was, if not surprising, at least more than seemed to be expected ahead of release. Now Sony is hoping lightning strikes twice as it puts Jumanji: The Next Level in theaters.

Like the first movie, the sequel’s story features individuals being sucked into a video game, taking on the looks and abilities of the game’s characters. This time around, Spencer (Alex Wolff) has gone missing in the game, leading his friends, Bethany (Madison Iseman), Martha (Morgan Turner) and Anthony (Ser'Darius Blain), to go find him....

Jumanji: The Next Level – Review

So what’s a favorite gift that’s usually under the Christmas tree, usually straight from the North Pole? Aside from the dolls (and action figures), craft sets, and sports equipment. a staple would be a game, more specifically a board game. That was the thinking of the celebrated author of children’s’ books, Chris Van Allsburg, when he came up with the beloved “kid lit’ classic that was made into an even more beloved 1995 fantasy adventure flick, Jumanji. Twenty-two years later “reboot fever'”struck Sony/Columbia Studios (along with most of Hollywood), so they decided to do an upgrade. First, they tossed out the dice, spinners, and all the board game fixtures and opted to go high tech (somewhat) and make it a video game. Mind you, it was somewhat “old school” with a cartridge, console, and joysticks, rather than the computer and internet systems. Oh, and instead of things escaping from the game,

Jumanji 4 Reportedly In The Works, First Plot Details Revealed

1995’s Jumanji is one of the late Robin Williams’ most beloved films, so it was a tall ask to reboot the franchise. Against all the odds, though, 2017’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle totally succeeded, with this weekend seeing the release of a third film in the series, The Next Level. We’ve yet to see how it’ll go down, of course, but Sony apparently has enough faith in it to already start work on a fourth movie.

That’s right, according to our sources – the same ones who said Ace Ventura 3 is in development, which has since been corroborated, and that a new Scream movie is happening, which has now been confirmed – the studio is planning on making Jumanji 4, with a plot already mapped out for it. As with The Next Level, director Jake Kasdan and stars Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, Jack Black, Kevin Hart and Nick Jonas

No sense putting the knock on this sequel to 2017’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which blew the cobwebs off the 1995 version starring Robin Williams. The reboot cast, again headed by Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan and the devilish Jack Black, are still fun company — The attitude of The Next Level, spearheaded by returning director Jake Kasdan and screenwriters Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg, is that if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

Jumanji: The Next Level Review: Avatar Hijinks Abound in Hilarious Sequel
Jumanji: The Next Level shakes up its premise with an avatar palooza. Every character from Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle returns, but with a fairly humorous twist. They unexpectedly switch bodies in the video game world. It's a successful gimmick that adds just enough creativity to the deluge of CGI animals and mammoth action sequences. New cast members spice up the recycled plot. Making Jumanji: The Next Level an enjoyable, though unremarkable, popcorn flick.

The film begins with Spencer (Alex Wolff) having a difficult freshman year at college in New York City. He struggles while Fridge (Ser'Darius Blain), Bethany (Madison Iseman), and ex-girlfriend Martha (Morgan Turner) have eagerly adapted to post high school life. When Bethany arranges a reunion dinner over winter break, Spencer ignores the group's texts. But his misery increases at home. Spencer's grumpy Grandpa Eddie (Danny DeVito) is recovering from hip surgery, in his room.

‘Jumanji: The Next Level’ Review

Stars: Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Karen Gillan, Nick Jonas, Alex Wolff, Morgan Turner, Ser’Darius Blain, Madison Iseman, Awkwafina, Danny Glover, and Danny DeVito | Written by Jake Kasdan, Jeff Pinkner, Scott Rosenberg | Directed by Jake Kasdan

Back in 2017 audiences, I’m sure, didn’t expect much of a Jumanji sequel-come-reboot but that film turned out to be something of a mega-hit, hitting all the right notes while not retreading the same ground as the original 1995 film. Skip forward to 2019 and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle gets its own sequel and one that could have been a complete retread of events of the prior film but thankfully throws in enough curve balls to the story to make this both familiar, in terms of plotting, characterisation, etc. yet different enough to be another beguilingly brilliant entry in the franchise. One that not only focuses on laughs but also on emotion.. The

‘Jumanji: The Next Level’ Review: Dwayne Johnson’s Unlikely Reboot Hit Gets Funnier, Messier Sequel

‘Jumanji: The Next Level’ Review: Dwayne Johnson’s Unlikely Reboot Hit Gets Funnier, Messier Sequel
It’s a concept as strange as it was inevitable: a big-budget reboot of a beloved kids’ film that centered on the lo-fi charms (and unexpected terror) of a whimsical board game with a mind of its own. When Sony opted to craft a new take on Joe Johnston’s creative adaptation of Chris Van Allsburg’s book “Jumanji” back in 2017, it seemed like another silly remake destined for the cinematic scrap heap. Taking the ruminative and often freaky Robin Williams-starring fantasy and turning in into a video game movie starring Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, Nick Jonas, and Jack Black? It sounded like Hollywood’s reboot machine was on the fritz, kicking out random ideas on a whim.

And yet Jake Kasdan’s late December release “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” subverted those expectations, offering up a funny and self-reflective spin on both reboots and video game movies,

‘Jumanji: The Next Level’ Film Review: Second Go-Round Offers Some Familiar Fun

‘Jumanji: The Next Level’ Film Review: Second Go-Round Offers Some Familiar Fun
Jake Kasdan’s action-comedy “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” was an unexpected smash in 2016, and with good cause. The film was a smart, exciting blockbuster that used video-game mechanics to tell an uplifting power fantasy.

After all, “Jumanji” asked, what are most video games if not a transportive experience, in which the player takes on powers and abilities beyond their own? And if that experience was literal, instead of merely simulated, how incredible would that be?

Kasdan’s sequel, “Jumanji: The Next Level” adds an all-new question to the franchise, and it’s surprisingly bleak: What happens after you come back from that empowering fantasy world and return to a humdrum life filled with all your old depressions and anxieties? “The Next Level” posits that life might have been hard before, but it can be borderline unlivable if you know there’s a better one waiting for you in a
