The latest adaptation of Chris Allsburg’s 1981 book is playing in theatres right now and it’s as entertaining as the previous one. Just like ‘Welcome To The Jungle’, Jake Kasdan’s ‘Jumanji: The Next Level’ is keeping up with its billion-dollar reputation. The reunion of Dr. Smolder Bravestone (Dwayne Johnson) and Franklin “Mouse” Finbar (Kevin Hart) is a treat to watch.
How is Jumanji: The Next Level doing in the Opening Week?
Star-studded Jake Kasdan film is well on its way to breaking the previous records. In comparison to Welcome to the Jungle’s $45 million, Jumanji: The Next Level is at a record-breaking $65 Million in the opening weekend.
Kevin Hart and Dwayne “The Rock’ Johnson starer adventure film rakes in an impressive $4 million in India alone during the first three days. Jumanji: The Next Level is at the top spot in the American market after dethroning Frozen 2. Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, and Jack Black starring movie is well on its way to becoming a billion-dollar movie.
What is Jake Kasdan’s movie about?
The storyline of Jumanji: The Next Level sees Spencer (Alex Wolff) venturing into the almost familiar territory once again. In hopes of becoming Dwayne Johnson’s Dr. Smolder Bravestone, Eddie’s grandson is stuck in the animal kingdom. His decision to jump back in drags Eddie and Milo in the game as well.
Rory McCann’s Jurgen the Brutal makes things even more challenging in Jumanji: The Next Level. The mission to save a friend turns into something much greater. Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Nick Jonas, and the team has to save the kingdom form Jurgen’s influence. A jewel in Brutal’s possession needs to be freed and exposed to the sun to save the territory from permanent drought and darkness.
Jumanji: The Next Level gets comically confusing during the body-swap scenes. The change in the avatar identities lets Danny DeVito enjoy Dwayne Johnson’s big biceps and flexible hips. Similarly, Jumanji: The Next Level also sees Kevin Hart’s Franklin “Mouse” Finbar give us some laughter fits. The character swap paves way for some funny dialogue delivery.
Did I just kill Eddie by talking too slow – like he always said I would?
I think Jake Kasdan’s latest collaboration with Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart is even better than the previous film and it will cross the billion-dollar mark in no time. Dankanator will keep you updated.
