&flix is set to premiere ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ this Sunday, October 21 at 1PM, under the Flix First Premiere. For the first time ever, this movie will be simulcast across the Zee English network, that includes Zee Café, Zee Café HD and &PrivèHD, alongside &flix and &flix HD. Directed by Jake Kasdan, the film stars an ensemble cast featuring superstars like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, standup comedians Kevin Hart, Jack Black, along with Karen Gillan.
Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle is an updated adaptation of Chris Van Allsburg’s picture book, this time turning the life-altering board game into a video game. The movie opens in the past when a teenager invariably gets pulled into the video game. Cut to present day where four high schoolers: popular girl Bethany (Madison Iseman), stoic Martha (Morgan Turner), nerdy Spencer (Alex Wolff), and football star Fridge (Ser’Darius Blain) are sent to detention to clean the basement.
Fridge and Spencer find the Jumanji game in an old donation box and convince the girls to play. As soon as they start, all of them are thrown into the game world where they turn into the avatars they chose and now have to go through a series of obstacles and have only 3 lives. Spencer is transformed into superhero-sized archeologist Smolder Bravestone (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson), Fridge is Bravestone’s diminutive sidekick zoologist Moose Finbar (Kevin Hart), Martha is vixen Ruby Roundhouse (Karen Gillan), and Bethany is cartographer Professor Shelly Overton (Jack Black). The movie that was named as the fourth most profitable release of 2017, is sure to take you on a thrilling yet funny journey.
