Friday 2nd February
Starring: Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black & Karen Gillan
Approx. running time (inc. adverts): TBC
When four kids dust off an old video game and begin to play ‘Jumanji’, they quickly realise this is not a normal game. It’s a game of survival, where only the winners return to the real world.
For high-school kids Spencer, Fridge, Bethany and Martha, an ordinary day hanging out is about to become extraordinary... And more than just a little bit weird.
Discovering a retro video game console with a mysterious game called 'Jumanji', they decide to dust the machine down and give it a try. That's when things start to go crazy.
No sooner have they fired the console up and chosen their avatars, they are transported into the thick of the games jungle setting. Gaming addict Spencer becomes a beefy adventurer, sports mad Fridge transforms into a diminutive Einstein, cool kid Bethany becomes a middle-aged, male professor and introvert Martha is suddenly a tough, renegade warrior.
It's immediately clear that Jumanji is going to be anything but boring, but they also discover it is a game of real survival and game over really means game over. The only way to beat it is to embark on the adventure of a lifetime, and uncover the secret left by Alan Parrish some 20 years ago.
22 years after family-favourite Jumanji (1995) left audiences spellbound with its unique blend of magic, mystery and humour, the franchise returns for another rollercoaster ride of fun.
