    BE THE FIRST TO WATCH! “JUMANJI: THE NEXT LEVEL” ARRIVES IN PHILIPPINE CINEMAS DEC 4

     

    December is going to be truly next level when the latest installment of the Jumanji action-adventure franchise hits the big screen on December 4 in the Philippines.



    Jumanji: The Next Level reunites the four teenagers who survived the trials of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle as they return home to Brantford, New Hampshire from their respective colleges for the holiday break. Now college students, they’re trying to navigate the next level in their individual lives. After Spencer is compelled to go back into the game, Martha, Fridge and Bethany must team up and re-enter the world of Jumanji on a daring rescue mission to bring Spencer home.

    The game is broken. Everything they know about Jumanji is about to change, as they discover that there’s more to it than just a jungle; it’s bigger, more dangerous, and has more thrilling obstacles to overcome. This means that anything can happen, so in addition to big action, incredible visual effects, and epic locations, you should also expect the unexpected.

    Also back in play are the avatar team of Dwayne Johnson as Dr. Smolder Bravestone, Jack Black as Dr. Shelly Oberon, Kevin Hart as Mouse Finbar, Karen Gillan as Ruby Roundhouse, and Nick Jonas as Seaplane, plus new players Danny Glover as Milo, Danny DeVito as Grandpa Eddie, and Awkwafina as a new avatar, Ming. However, things aren’t always what they appear to be, and they must rely on their strengths to navigate the changes to the game to get out alive and bring Spencer home safely before it’s game over for them all.

    “The opportunity to come back to this idea, to these characters, both the kids in the real world and their avatars in the game, was irresistible to me,” says director Jake Kasdan. “But the great gift of this story is that we could bring everybody back, get the team back together, but also change what everyone was doing. And that makes it all new again. It allowed us to reapply the big idea, but in a really different way.”

    According to the film’s star and producer, Dwayne Johnson, they knew how high expectations were from the outset: “This film is bringing things to the next level, to coin the phrase of our title, in a lot of ways. We go to the next level with our action sequences that are just really spectacular action sequences, our set pieces. What we've established is that there are multiple Jumanji universes, so we are going to the snow-capped mountains. We are in the desert dunes. We are back in the jungle. We are really all over the place in the best way. 

    “If you're lucky enough to have a movie as successful as the first Jumanji, you've got to raise the bar,” adds Johnson. “You've got to raise your game. You've got to level up. So, I think we did - and not only that, but we also introduced new characters in the movie which I think audiences will really respond to this time around.”

    STARS OF “JUMANJI: THE NEXT LEVEL” JOHNSON, DeVITO CRASH A WEDDING!

    NICK JONAS, AWKWAFINA INJECT “JUMANJI” SEQUEL WITH YOUTHFUL VIBE

     

    Nick Jonas (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, TV’s Kingdom) and Awkwafina (Crazy Rich Asians, Ocean’s 8) lend a hip, youthful vibe to Columbia Pictures’ epic action-adventure Jumanji: The Next Level (in Philippine cinemas December 4).





    Back in play are the avatar team of Dwayne Johnson as Dr. Smolder Bravestone, Jack Black as Dr. Shelly Oberon, Kevin Hart as Mouse Finbar, Karen Gillan as Ruby Roundhouse.  Also returning is Nick Jonas as Seaplane, while Awkwafina stars as a new avatar, Ming.

    Jefferson “Seaplane” McDonough is the dashing pilot who helped the team on their previous quest as an avatar for Alex, a young man who had been stuck in Jumanji since 1996 before escaping with the teens in the previous film.

    "The first film, we were able to get lightning in a bottle, and I feel like we have got a similar situation the second time around,” says Jonas. “[Diretor] Jake Kasdan just has this way of bringing out the best performance in everybody. It's so great to be back."

    The newest avatar is the mysterious Ming, played by Awkwafina. While her weakness is pollen, her strengths are nothing to sneeze at; they include cat burglary, pick-pocketing, and safe cracking, which may prove useful in the series of challenges she’ll face as the world of Jumanji proves to be bigger and more dangerous than ever.

    “Awkwafina’s a powerful performer. Rap artist, comedienne, actress…she’s a multi-hyphenate, so I was very excited when I found out that we had snagged her to be in the movie. I knew that she was gonna take it to another level, and she has,” exclaims co-star Jack Black. “She fit just like a glove on this project. She’s got sass and style and zest – the girl’s got magic! We all just jelled right out of the gate and doing scenes with her has been special.”

    “I think that the message of Jumanji and the fun of it appeals to people of every age. When we look at superhero movies we see someone who obviously is flawed but has just some kind of insane power. Whereas everyone in Jumanji, they are normal people who become heroes in the game, and I think that resonates with anyone, across any culture. Bravery, courage, facing and understanding your flaws. Those are universal concepts and so old or young, I think that you really feel something when you see these characters,” says Awkwafina.

    Jumanji: The Next Level reunites the four teenagers who survived the trials of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle as they return home to Brantford, New Hampshire from their respective colleges for the holiday break. Now college students, they’re trying to navigate the next level in their individual lives. After Spencer is compelled to go back into the game, Martha, Fridge and Bethany must team up and re-enter the world of Jumanji on a daring rescue mission to bring Spencer home.

    But the game is broken, and is fighting back. Everything they know about Jumanji is about to change, as they discover that there’s more to it than just a jungle; it’s bigger, more dangerous, and has more thrilling obstacles to overcome. This means that anything can happen, so in addition to big action, incredible visual effects, and epic locations, you should also expect the unexpected.

    DWAYNE JOHNSON, KEVIN HART BICKER TO “THE NEXT LEVEL” IN “JUMANJI” SEQUEL

     

    Today’s funniest screen tandem Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart are back as in-game avatars Dr. Smolder Bravestone and Mouse Finbar, respectively, in Columbia Pictures’ epic action-adventure Jumanji: The Next Level (in Philippine cinemas December 4).

    But there are twists! Because the game was smashed at the end of the previous film, it’s not functioning normally, which means anything can happen.  

    Watch the film’s new character featurettes below:




    Dr. Smolder Bravestone (Johnson), the intrepid archeological adventurer and muscle-bound action hero is back in the game, complete with his laundry list of strengths: fearlessness, climbing, speed, boomerang, and his trademark smoldering intensity. However, this time, he serves as the avatar for Eddie (Danny DeVito), Spencer’s grandfather. In the previous film, he got to play a neurotic teenager, and now he gets to play the opposite end of the spectrum. The juxtaposition of Bravestone’s heroic abilities, and Dwayne Johnson’s physicality inhabited by a cantankerous elderly man recovering from hip surgery, results in a slew of comedic moments. Especially hilarious is seeing Bravestone inhabited by an irritable guy from Asbury Park, New Jersey.

    “Capturing the essence and nuances of Danny DeVito was the best time as an actor. I had a chance to study him, going back and watching a lot of his old movies and TV shows, all the way back to Taxi. His work is just so brilliant,” says Dwayne Johnson. “There's just a wit and a way about him. I was able to spend time with Danny and embody him as best I could. And he was very gracious. It was a blast becoming Danny DeVito.”

    Meanwhile, diminutive zoologist and weapons valet, Mouse Finbar (Hart) is back sporting his trademark red bandana and huge backpack of weapons. In this level of the game, his new skill of linguistics proves especially helpful in getting the gang over some serious humps. Finbar’s weaknesses include a lack of speed, inferior strength, and a penchant for cake. This time, he becomes an avatar for Eddie’s estranged friend and former business partner, Milo (Danny Glover).

    Kevin Hart’s trademark rapid-fire style of comedic delivery is replaced by the meandering, lackadaisical narrative style of Milo, resulting in major laughs as he embodies Danny Glover’s mannerisms and speech cadence. His zoological explanations of various animals provide comedic footnotes throughout the story, even if he is constantly bewildered as to how he knows this information. He doesn’t grasp that he’s been dropped into a video game, prompting him to continually ask questions, such (“Did I die and turn into a small, muscular Boy Scout?”) and is constantly misunderstanding the circumstances of their predicament.

    “You see Mouse Finbar take on the persona of an older gentleman, with me being Danny Glover,” shares Hart. “The older version of Danny Glover in movies just makes me laugh because he’s so calm. Everything he says is just happy. I thought that could be a very funny place to play with. Like that older man that’s a little more at ease, because I’m very ‘Aahhh!’ all the time!”

    JACK BLACK, KAREN GILLAN LIFT UP THEIR GAME FOR “JUMANJI: THE NEXT LEVEL”

     

    Jack Black and Karen Gillan return as in-game avatars Dr. Shelby Oberon and Ruby Roundhouse respectively, in Columbia Pictures’ epic action-adventure Jumanji: The Next Level (now playing in Philippine cinemas).

    Watch the film’s new character featurettes below:




    In Jumanji: The Next Level, the gang is back but the game has changed. As they return to Jumanji to rescue one of their own, they discover that nothing is as they expect. The players will have to brave parts unknown and unexplored, from the arid deserts to the snowy mountains, in order to escape the world’s most dangerous game.

    DR. SHELDON “SHELLY” OBERON

    Jack Black returns to deliver more comic relief as Dr. Sheldon “Shelly” Oberon, the “curvy genius” whose strengths lay in cartography, archeology, and paleontology. While his weaknesses — poor endurance, and aversions to heat, sun, and sand — make for serious laughs, especially in the desert sequences, his newly acquired strength of geometry proves critical to the equation in a key moment.

    In the previous film, he was an avatar for Bethany, which made for hilarity as image-conscious teen queen found herself inhabiting the body of, as she put it, “an overweight, middle-aged man.” This time, Dr. Oberon serves as the avatar for Fridge, which brings fresh laughs, as the hulking athlete inhabits a body with considerably more physical limitations than he is used to. Fridge’s frustration with being put into the Oberon avatar and his constant outbursts lead to serious laughs, as Black brings his comedy A-Game, regardless of the environment he’s in, or who he’s inhabited by.

    Black was excited to return for another round in the game. “I was excited to get the gang back together,” says Black. “You know, it’s chemistry. That’s one of the biggest parts of a film, and Jake has an eye for chemistry. He knew to put all of us together and add this person and that person and mix it in, and it’s just fun, man. When it’s the right chemistry, you can feel it, you know? And I definitely feel it on the set. I’m looking around going, ‘oh *****, we are a team. We are gonna bring it!’”

    RUBY ROUNDHOUSE

    Once again, badass bombshell and martial arts master Ruby Roundhouse (Karen Gillan) is Martha’s avatar. Her existing strengths include karate, t’ai chi, and aikido, as well as her impressive dance fighting skills. This time around, she adds nunchucks to her strengths list, while retaining her sole weakness: venom.

    This athletic “Killer of Men” finds herself taking on a more significant role within the group of switched up avatar pairings. In the previous film, Ruby helped Martha discover her inner strength and power. “Martha’s come a long way since the last movie. She’s incredibly intelligent, but still very bookish and quiet and socially awkward. Now, she’s in the avatar that she knows how to use, and quite quickly, she realizes that she’s the most capable of everyone and she becomes the leader of the gang, helping them through the game,” explains Gillan.

    “I think that this film is largely wish fulfillment for everybody who watches it,” says Gillan. “I think we’ve all experienced wanting to be in someone else’s existence and to know what that feels like. I think being in the body of somebody else, you discover a little about yourself. You also have this license to kind of do all of these crazy adventurous things that you would never normally do. I’m so excited for audiences to see all of these actors play completely different characters. I’m so fond of Martha and to play the awkward teenage girl is something that comes a little too naturally to me.“

    Welcome to the Jungle is funnier but this one is still fun. The characters were nice to watch (Dwayne Johnson as Danny DeVito and Kevin Hart as Danny Glover are some highlights) and the mid-credits scene was...wow, did not see that coming. 8/10
