‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ trailer features the Rock’s muscles, eyebrow


The official Jumanji trailer for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is here and this time… it’s a video game.

Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson tweeted out the trailer on Thursday morning, which reimagines the 1995 Robin Williams film for a new generation, and drops four high school students into a video game. The Rock, Karen Gillan, Kevin Hart, and Jack Black are the in-game versions of the students, who get sucked into it while in detention. Last September, when Hart previewed a photo on Instagram, there was some conversation about Gillan’s outfit. In the trailer, she addresses it: “Why am I wearing half a shirt and short shorts in the jungle?”

Well, at least they got clearance for “Welcome to the Jungle.” The movie debuts Dec. 20.
