'Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle' starring Kevin Hart, Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan and Jack Black opens at cinemas nationwide on Dec 21.

The 1995 Jumanji starring Robin Williams and Kirsten Dunst revolved around a magical board game, called Jumanji. Once someone starts playing, the elements of the game (such as a horde of animals) come to life.

There sure is a lot of standing around in this game, eh?

Some 22 years later, there is a new movie where Jumanji is now a vintage video game. Here, however, when players start the game, they are transported to a jungle-like environment – not as themselves, but – as their chosen avatars.

Worry not. Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle has more than enough action sequences.

Four teenagers discover the game in a basement and decide to play the game instead of cleaning up the place like they’re supposed to. Gamer Spencer’s avatar is – surprise, surprise – a brawny adventurer (Dwayne Johnson); football jock Fridge turns into, erm, Kevin Hart; popular girl Bethany becomes a middle-aged male professor (Jack Black); and wallflower Martha is now a sexy and badass warrior (Karen Gillan).

We thought it was a bad idea to revive Jumanji until we saw the extended trailer, which is just hilarious. Check it out below.
