Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle sequel to start production in January

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle enjoyed an enormously successful box office run across the last holiday season and into this year, going toe-to-toe with Star Wars: The Last Jedi on its way to $962 million in global box office receipts.

With those figures making it Sony’s second-biggest release of all time behind Skyfall ($1.1 billion), it came as no surprise whatsoever that the studio decided to fast track a third instalment in the Jumanji franchise for release at Christmas 2019.

Well, it seems the production dates have now been set, as Omega Underground is reporting that the as-yet-untitled film will shoot in Atlanta and Hawaii between January 21st and April 26th 2019.

The film will reunite Welcome to the Jungle director Jake Kasdan and stars Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, and Jack Black.

Having wrapped Disney’s Jungle Cruise last month, The Rock is currently in production on the Fast & Furious

Tamra Davis to Direct Paul Feig Comedy ‘Turned On’ for Fox
Veteran director Tamra Davis will helm Fox’s female engineer comedy “Turned On.”

Paul Feig and Jessie Henderson are producing for Feigco Entertainment, where 20th Century Fox has been developing the script for the past two years. The studio bought the script in 2016 from Charlie Kesslering, an assistant to “The Late Late Show” host James Corden, about a socially awkward engineer who creates an android to fill in for her. The scheme backfires when robot becomes self-actualized.

Davis broke into show business in 1986 as the director of music videos for N.W.A, Sonic Youth, the Beastie Boys and Black Flag. She began directing feature films with 1992’s “Guncrazy,” followed by “Billy Madison,” “Half Baked,” and “Crossroads.” Davis also has multiple TV credits including “Still the King,” “Younger,” “My Name Is Earl,” and “Everybody Hates Chris.”

Feig’s directing credits include “Unaccompanied Minors,” “Bridesmaids,” “Spy,” “The Heat,” and the upcoming crime thriller “A Simple Favor.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle director gives an update on Jumanji 3

Last month, Dwayne Johnson officially confirmed that Jake Kasdan will be back in the director’s chair for next year’s sequel to the smash hit action adventure Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, and now the filmmaker has provided an update on the as-yet-untitled Jumanji 3 during an interview with Collider.

“The idea is to make the movie in the beginning of the year if we can get it all worked out,” said Kasdan. “We have not started figuring out the locations yet. Hawaii was a big part of Welcome to the Jungle and we love Hawaii, so it would be great to go back there. I think we’re getting very close to cracking the script. It’s a complicated little puzzle, but I think we got some good stuff cooking.”

Dwayne Johnson thanks fans as Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle becomes Sony’s biggest ever domestic release

Despite coming under fire when it was first announced that a reboot of the beloved 1995 Robin Williams movie was in development, Sony scored a huge success with December’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, with the film proving a hit with audiences and critics alike.

Holding its own at the box office despite competition from Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Welcome to the Jungle has now reached a new milestone, overtaking Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man to become Sony’s highest grossing domestic release ever.

In North America, the film has grossed $404 million, topping the $403.7 million record set by Spider-Man back in 2002. Globally, it is Sony’s second biggest release of all time behind Skyfall ($1.1 billion), having pulled in an impressive $951 million.

As you’d expect, Sony has already announced a sequel which is being fast-tracked for release around Christmas 2019, and actor Dwayne Johnson has shared a brief update on his Instagram,

Karen Gillan discusses Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’s box office success

Sony Pictures scored a major hit with its recent reboot Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, with the film holding its own against Star Wars: The Last Jedi and pulling in a hefty $931 million at the worldwide box office.

Speaking to Screen Rant, actress Karen Gillan has been chatting about the success of the movie, which is Sony’s second-biggest domestic release behind 2002’s Spider-Man, and the studio’s second-biggest worldwide hit after 2012’s Skyfall.

“I think we all had confidence in it, but it was still a ballsy move to release up against Star Wars because that’s just, yeah, that’s like a crazy thing to do, I think,” said Gillan. “We all felt like it was a really strong film, but I don’t think any of us anticipated quite this level of success. I mean, it’s turned into a bit of a phenomenon. I mean, we

Review – Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Blu-ray Bonus Features

Tai Freligh reviews the bonus features on the Blu-ray release of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

I thoroughly enjoyed Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, so when the opportunity came up to review the home video bonus features ahead of the film’s release, I jumped at the chance. I was curious as to how they would address the original film with Robin Williams (hint: there’s a featurette for that!) and I wanted to see the gag reel because having seen a few movies now with Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, I knew it should be comedy gold (it wasn’t).

Like any home video release with more than just a trailer included on the DVD, the bonus features for Jumanji were hit and miss. There were several throwaway features, but what saved the whole lot was two features in particular.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle tops $900 million, now Sony’s second biggest movie of all time

Despite competition for tickets ramping up with the release of Marvel’s Black Panther, Sony’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has hit another box office milestone this weekend as the film passed the $900 million mark worldwide.

Domestically, the Jumanji sequel has now earned $377.6 million, making it Sony’s second-biggest North American release of all time behind 2002’s Spider-Man. Internationally, it has amassed $527 million, for a global haul of $904.6 million. Again, that is second only to Skyfall, which Sony distributed in 2012, with the Bond film earning $1.109 billion worldwide.

Welcome to the Jungle has certainly exceeded all expectations, particularly as it has found itself competing with Star Wars: The Last Jedi throughout its run, and Sony will be hoping for a repeat performance with the sequel, which the studio is fast-tracking for release in 2019.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle set to become Dwayne Johnson’s biggest ever domestic hit

Although it came in for a lot of flak when the project was first announced, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has proven to be a firm favourite both with critics and audiences alike.

This past weekend it topped the U.S. box office, becoming the first December release to hit #1 in February since James Cameron’s Titanic, and now the film finds itself just $300,000 shy of Furious 7’s $353 million North American haul, meaning it is close to become Dwayne Johnson’s biggest ever domestic hit.

Worldwide, Welcome to the Jungle has pulled in $855.7 million, so it will still trail both The Fate of the Furious ($1.236 billion) and Furious 7 ($1.516 billion) globally. Nevertheless, it’s still proven to be a very welcome hit for Sony, with the studio already announcing that it is in development on a sequel.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is getting a sequel

The success of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was one of the most welcome surprises of the past few months, with the film currently standing at just under $800 million at the worldwide box office. What should come as no surprise at all is that Sony are already looking at fast-tracking a sequel.

Details are sketchy at the moment, but The Wall Street Journal reports that studio head, Tim Rothman is hoping to get the follow-up in cinemas by the end of 2019.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle passes $750 million worldwide

Audiences may have been sceptical when the project was first announced, but Sony’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has proven to be a runaway success at the box office, with the film pushing its worldwide haul to $767.8 million and counting.

Domestically, Jumanji held on to top spot for the third weekend in a row with $20 million, fending off competition from war drama 12 Strong ($16.5 million) and crime thriller Den of Thieves ($15.3 million), to pus its North American haul at $317 million. That’s the fifth highest of any Sony release, bettered only by the original Spider-Man films and Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Welcome to the Jungle is also demonstrating impressive staying power internationally, pushing its haul to $450 million from the international markets and holding on to top spot for the fourth consecutive weekend.

After finishing runner up to Star Wars: The Last Jedi at the North American box office for the past three weekends, the action-adventure film Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has dethroned Episode VIII at the fourth time of asking, and in doing so has also passed the half billion dollar mark worldwide.

The Jake Kasdan-directed film, a sequel/reboot to 1995’s Robin Williams-headlined Jumanji, has pulled in $244.4 million domestically, along with a further $275 million from international markets. Its worldwide haul currently stands at $519.4 million, from a $90 million production budget.

Jumanji beats The Greatest Showman on its opening day but succumbs to Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has opened ahead of The Greatest Showman on its opening day at the box office.

Bringing in an estimated $7.2 million on Wednesday from 3,765 theatres, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has made a decent bow at the start of the Christmas movie season rush.

It finished considerably ahead of Hugh Jackman’s The Greatest Showman, which opened to $2.5 million from 3,005 locations.

Neither film could of course get anywhere near Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which added to its already titanic haul with $16.9 million on Wednesday, bringing its six day total to $278.8 million.

The Last Jedi will also stay on top over the Christmas period, and is expected to bring in as much as $120 million between Wednesday and Monday, well ahead of the $48 million or so expected from Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle receives positive first reactions

In this climate of remakes, reboots, and exhaustive franchises, there was one film that appeared to be about as welcome as a lump of coal at Christmas, and that was the follow-up to 1995 Robin Williams family flick Jumanji. Only this time it would transfer the board game to the video screen, and star the omni-present Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, rather than the late, great Williams.

Well, it seems we needed to pack our cynicism away, because from initial early screening reactions, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle appears to be a winner.

Was expecting the worst but have to admit the new #Jumanji movie is a lot of fun. I’d even say it is one of the best “video game movies” ever made, maybe under only King of Kong, Scott Pilgrim, Edge of Tomorrow & Wreck It Ralph (none of which are adaptations).
