The cast and crew of Jumanji seem to be having a good time in the jungle, posting pictures and videos to social media. Dwayne Johnson is as ever, the social media darling, the guy just gets it. Jack Black isn’t one to take a back seat so he’s upped his game by simply eating lunch. Check out both videos below. (more…)
Apparently there has been a little Internet controversy going on about what Karen Gillan is wearing in the on set Jumanji picture that Kevin Hart posted a few days ago. While her co-stars Hart, Dwayne Johnson, and Jack Black are appropriately clothed for a jungle expedition, many had issues with Gillan’s more skin than clothing attire. Enough it seems to warrant a response from Gillan. (more…)
Fans are still a little apprehensive about the Jumanji sequel starring Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart and it’s hard not to blame them for those feelings. Would Johnson and Hart turn a much beloved movie into something that didn’t honor the original? Hart posted the first on set image to Instagram late last night. Take a look at Kevin Hart, Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, and Jack Black in Jumanji jungle costume. (more…)
A remake of the 1995 classic Jumanji was first announced by Sony in the summer time of 2015, due for release at the end of the next years. At the time, the news was not met well. Perhaps the online backlash was fuelled by the then very recent death of Robin Williams just a year before. Perhaps people just liked the original movie so much that they genuinely believed it couldn’t be improved upon by a remake. (more…)
Hollywood has done it again – bringing back the old folks and pitting them against each other in a fight to the finish! Yes, folks, it’s another continuation in the rise of the action geriatrics and this time involves Sylvester Stallone and Robert de Niro working together on a boxing movie called Grudge Match.
It’s not going to be all badly performed stunts and catch-phrases, however. This movie is a comedy about boxing, not a straight-up throw-down. The Raging Bull and Rocky will play two old, retired boxers who happen to hate the piss out of each other. Nearly 50 years after their last title fight, some fight promoter convinces them that it’s a good idea to go head-to-head once more.
Grudge Match is being put together by Warner Bros., directed by Peter Segal (Get Smart) and is being written by Doug Ellin (Entourage). The newest addition to cast and crew is Kevin Hart, who recently signed on to play the promoter that wants the two to get in the ring and break some hips.
And while I’m not impressed with the production crew, I can see getting some laughs from the two old classic boxing actors, especially considering that the script lets them play elderly folks instead of trying to make them 30-something again. You never know, I may even spend money to see this in the theaters, unless the trailer confirms my worst fears…
What do you folks sitting lazily at home on the couch think? Is de Niro a comedy nightmare? Will it be worth it just to see these two in a film together one more time?
