February is cold, dark, and short; the perfect month to watch a ton of movies without feeling bad about it.

Mary J. Blige Joins Illustrious Group of Golden Globes Double Music-Acting Nominees

Mary J. Blige Joins Illustrious Group of Golden Globes Double Music-Acting Nominees
Perhaps the most surprising double-nomination for this year’s Golden Globes: the twin nods given to Mary J. Blige for best supporting actress and best song — for the film “Mudbound” and its song “Mighty River.” With those, Blige becomes the first performer to be simultaneously nominated in song and acting since John C. Reilly got dual nods for “Walk Hard” 10 years ago. Barbra Streisand, Bjork, Beyonce and Dolly Parton are the other female singer/actors who have scored nominations in both categories in the past, while Reilly and Neil Diamond are the male dual nominees. Only Streisand has won both (for the 1976 film “A Star Is Born”).

Few other surprises popped up in the Globes’ music categories. Other best song contenders include “Remember Me” from “Coco” and “This is Me” from “The Greatest Showman,” both of which are frequently cited as among the frontrunners in the Oscars’ best song contest.

‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ Review: A Robin Williams Relic Is Reborn as a Mildly Amusing Video Game Movie

‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ Review: A Robin Williams Relic Is Reborn as a Mildly Amusing Video Game Movie
A semi-related sequel to a 1996 kids movie that exactly zero human beings have watched since the death of VHS, the mildly amusing “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” is further proof that even the stalest whiff of brand recognition has become preferable to originality. Only part of the blame for that belongs to the studios, but after cannibalizing themselves for much of the last 20 years, Hollywood has clearly eaten their way down to the crumbs.

That’s not to suggest the original “Jumanji” was such an unspeakably terrible thing — Joe Johnston has always known how to serve a fine bowl of popcorn entertainment — but rather to say that no one should ever have to write the words: “The original ‘Jumanji.’” And while it’s nice that this new adventure has virtually nothing to do with the first one, “The Lego Batman Movie” screenwriter Chris McKenna leveraging the franchise’s most basic

Jumanji Welcome To The Jungle review

Firing into cinemas this weekend in UK-wide previews is Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle, the sequel/ slight reboot to the 1990s blockbuster led by the late, great Robin Williams. History, and indeed the former movie, is preserved here adequately in a new, exciting tale from screenwriters Jake Kasdan, Scott Rosenberg, Jeff Pinkner, Erik Sommers, and Chris McKenna who have managed to reflect the joys of the original movie and build a new one, albeit with a slightly meta comedic spin on proceedings.

The game has evolved. The new movie picks up very much where things were left off, in the mid-1990s where the legendary game of Jumanji is discovered,

Adventurous New Trailer and Character Posters For Jumanji 2: Welcome To The Jungle

I've had a change of heart recently when it comes to sequels. After seeing Blade Runner 2049, I really believe sequels can be a good thing when done right. Even when the sequel is decades after the original. And in the spirit of believing, I really believe the new Jumanji movie is going to be great.

The new trailer for Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle doesn't show too much of anything new. It feels mostly like it's focusing on showing off the Rock as much as possible. "Wow, isn't the Rock strong?", "The Rock is so handsome", "The Rock doesn't take anything from anybody". We get it, Dwayne, you are great! Even with all the focus on the Rock, it still is pretty cool. It gives a better idea of how this Jumanji is connected to the first.

Two Fantastically Fun and Adventurous Trailers For Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle Offers Lots of New Footage

Sony Pictures has released new domestic and international trailers for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and they offer lots of fun and adventurous new footage that I think some of you will enjoy. We even get a glimpse at what happens to the board game version of Jumanji from the original film. It looks like maybe the person who finds the board game on the beach ended up being the one to adapt it into a video game.

When I first heard about this movie getting made I was a little leery, but I've really enjoyed what I've seen in the trailers that have been released, especially in these new ones. I'm actually excited to take the fam to go see the movie! Watch the trailer and tell us what you think!

‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’: The Rock Goes Exploring In 2 New Trailers

There’s several ways you can look at “Jumanji,” a reboot of the franchise started in 1995 with Robin Williams, but quickly abandoned. One, the modern version features Dwayne Johnson, arguably the world’s biggest and bankable star, so it has that going for it. It also looks like a cross between “Kong: Skull Island” and “Land Of The Lost.”

But what’s perhaps more interesting to us is the fact the film’s being directed by Jake Kasdan, the comedy filmmaker behind films like “Bad Teacher” “Sex Tape” and Judd Apatow’s “Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story.” And like many filmmakers around him, Kasdan is making the ambitious leap into big-budget filmmaking with “Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle.

Straight Outta Hollywood: how hip-hop saved the biopic

The film biography has a chequered past, but a rash of dramas based on the lives of 90s rap stars such as Tupac and Nwa has juiced the genre

Music biopics have a long and, frankly, embarrassing history. Sure, some are well done (Control and I’m Not There come to mind), but this type of film has never been particularly successful. Until fairly recently only one – Walk the Line, about Johnny Cash – grossed more than $100m (£77.3m) at the box office.

Let’s be honest: it is weird seeing an actor playing your favourite musician – said actor undoubtedly lacks the charisma (and sex appeal) – but it’s also a script problem. Hollywood biopics tend to be incredibly formulaic: precocious talent achieves success against the odds, only to be subsumed by druggy excess, followed by downfall and then redemption. The groupies, crying mothers and finding-Jesus vignettes practically write themselves. The

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Trailer Is Here and It's Crazy

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Trailer Is Here and It's Crazy
You're in the jungle baby! And it is pretty cool. More than twenty years later, we are finally getting a sequel to Jumanji and, in a world full of reboots that nobody asked for, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle actually looks pretty awesome so far. Sadly, it won't be able to feature the late Robin Williams, but Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is doing his best to help fill that void and, based on this first sneak peak, it looks like he just may be able to pull it off.

Sony Pictures dropped the first trailer for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle today, as promised, following a couple of brief trailer teases earlier in the week. This movie is going to be able to capitalize on some nostalgia, no doubt, but it is also going to benefit from modern special effects, which is very clear here. Director Joe Johnston did the

Fun First Full Trailer for Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle

The first full trailer has been released for Dwayne Johnson's Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and the movie turned out to look a lot better than I was expecting! It actually looks like it could be a lot of fun! I love the whole avatar concept and how the main actors are really playing teenagers in these adult bodies that they now inhabit. Johnson, Jack Black, Karen Gillan, and Kevin Hart will definitely bring on the laughs. Jack Black just might steal the show as he plays a teenage girl. This is going to be an entertaining comedy adventure!

In a brand new Jumanji adventure, the tables are turned as four teenagers are sucked into Jumanji’s world – pitted against rhinos, black mambas and an endless variety of jungle traps and puzzles.

Judd Apatow on Guilt-Parenting, Panic Attacks and the Tao of Mr. Rogers
Judd Apatow may be the busiest man in show business. The 49-year-old has directed and/or produced a generation's worth of comedy classics, from Freaks and Geeks to Superbad to Girls. His documentary on the Avett Brothers, May It Last, premiered at SXSW in March; the HBO vehicle for Pete Holmes that he oversaw, Crashing, just finished its first season; and the Apatow-produced Sundance sensation The Big Sick, Kumail Nanjiani's semi-autobiographical story about love, sickness and culture clashes, hits theaters on June 23rd.

How 'Logan' Director James Mangold Made the Most Violent Wolverine Movie Yet

How 'Logan' Director James Mangold Made the Most Violent Wolverine Movie Yet
Even the most "serious" and "grounded" superhero movies ultimately offer a warm bath of escapism – but not the fatalistic new twilight-of-Wolverine movie Logan, which feels more like having three metal claws puncture your cranium. This film is many things: the most daring mainstream superhero movie ever; a sharp dystopian vision of a post-Trump future America; a showcase for many, many decapitations and impalements, some of them perpetrated by an 11-year-old girl with a metal skeleton; everything Zack Snyder's Watchmen could have been, had it not been directed by Zack Snyder.

Movie Review: The year’s second Obama origin story, Barry, goes deeper into the president’s past

The name Obama is never once uttered in Barry, Vikram Gandhi’s minor-key presidential origin story. Only in the film’s final few minutes does the title character even call himself Barack—and then only in his head, reading a letter to his absent father. Dramatically announcing that some sprightly figure is actually a famous person before they were famous is an especially hackneyed biopic convention, but Barry doesn’t avoid it just to stay out of Walk Hard’s sphere of parody. It also does so because the young man we’re watching here—a smart, lonely college kid new to New York, and originally from “Hawaii, Indonesia, Kenya—you name it”—is decades and miles removed from the commander-in-chief he’ll one day become. He’s not President Barack Obama yet. For the modest moments chronicled, he’s just Barry.

Jumanji adds new face to its cast

Nick Harley Dec 7, 2016

Tim Matheson joins Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan and Jack Black in the new Jumanji movie...

Jumanji is adding another player to its game, as Deadline has reported that Tim Matheson has joined the cast of Sony’s sequel/reboot.

The Leave It To Beaver, Animal House, Johnny Quest, The West Wing and most recently, Killing Reagan star will be playing Old Man Vreeke (perhaps a villainous role akin to the part Johnathan Hyde played in the original?) in the new film alongside Dwayne Johnson.

Director Jake Kasdan (Orange County, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story) has revealed that the new Jumanji will continue the events from the first film and will pay tribute to Robin Williams’ character. The original Jumanji was an adaptation of the 1981 children's book of the same name by Chris Van Allsburg. It was directed by Joe Johnston and also starred Bonnie Hunt,

In 1995, TriStar Pictures released Joe Johnston’s family adventure film “Jumanji,” starring Robin Williams and Bonnie Hunt, about a board game that comes to life and wreaks havoc until the players have completed it. The film was a box office success and has had a lasting impact on a generation of kids.
