Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was a surprise hit in 2017, a sequel/soft reboot that actually manages to add to the lore of the original movie, such as changing the Jumanji game from a board game to a video game, while also standing on its own. Jumanji: The Next Level is the inevitable sequel, crassly capitalizing on the lightning strike of Jungle. Full Story

The first trailer for Jungle Cruise, starring Emily Blunt and Dwayne Johnson, has arrived and I do not have time for this half-dressed bullsh-t, do not try to fool me, I know The Mummy (the good one) when I see it. This is just The Mummy (the good one) dressed up for the jungle instead of the desert. Full Story

Hobbs & Shaw is perfectly dumb and so much fun

Breaking away from the main body of the Fast/Furious franchise, Hobbs & Shaw unites the two most likable people from the franchise into a gloriously dumb spin-off meant to curtail further infighting with Vin Diesel. Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham blow off the Fast/Furious popsicle stand and set up their own joint, along with director David Leitch (Atomic Blonde, Deadpool 2), who brings a sense of style not seen since James Wan. Full Story

Fast 9, the latest entry in the most improbable franchise in cinema, is currently filming in the UK. Vin Diesel took to Instagram to drop some casting news, confirming that Charlize Theron and Helen Mirren are returning for this installment. Theron was the villain in F8te of the Furious—still mad that isn’t the actual title—and Mirren plays Magdalene Shaw, mother of Deckard (aka Jason Statham). Full Story

Back during the 2017 holidays, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was a surprise, near-billion-dollar hit. So, naturally, a sequel (three-quel, technically) was immediately rushed into development. That movie, Jumanji: The Next Level, is scheduled for the 2019 holiday season, obviously hoping to repeat the fortunes of its predecessor. Full Story

As previously stated, I am SUPER ON BOARD with Hobbs & Shaw, the Fast/Furious spin-off focused on The Rock and Jason Statham. I am 100% in the tank for this movie, I don’t care if it’s good or bad because those are relative terms that do not apply when The Rock is creating a truck-chain to bring down a helicopter. Full Story

Emily Blunt and John Krasinski showed up to a screening of Fighting With My Family last night in New York. The film is written and directed by Stephen Merchant and produced by Dwayne The Rock Johnson who also plays a small role. As The Rock keeps saying, he doesn’t just work on movies that feature muscles and explosions. Full Story

Dwayne Johnson reteams with his Central Intelligence director, Rawson Marshall Thurber, for a disaster movie set in a very tall building that is equal parts Die Hard and The Towering Inferno. You would think a movie that stars The Rock and is equal parts Die Hard and The Towering Inferno would be, at the very least, dumb fun, but Skyscraper is oddly dull. Full Story
