More images surface from Dwayne Johnson and the cast of new ‘Jumanji’ movie

more jumanji images jumanji01
As if in an attempt to ward off those who see a new Jumanji film as a travesty, more happy-go-lucky images and video from the set of the film have been released by various cast members. They show the stars having a whale of a time in beautiful locations, posing with stunt doubles and preparing for the next shots.

Titled simply, Jumanji, the new film in the Parrish Shoes universe will not be a reboot, or reimagining, but somewhat of a spiritual sequel to the original. Dwayne Johnson previously stated that it would homage Robin Williams’ character, even suggesting that he would be somewhat of a legend in the film’s lore.

Whether you’re happy with that or not, the cast and crew seem to be having a great time. In his latest posting, Johnson put up a picture of three of the main actors: himself, Kevin Hart, and Jack Black, all relaxing between shots. Apparently, they all have a few different habits to help them pass the time.

Johnson has been posting images of the cast, set and crew for a while now, but he’s not the only one who finds time between takes to let us in on what it’s like working on the film. Fellow Jumanji actor Karen Gillan has also been posting snaps and videos with her costars and stunt doubles. Often making fun of the tiresome process of filmmaking as a major star at the same time.

Being an actress is hard…

Indeed, being an actress is hard, but it’s certainly much easier when you have a few people to help you out when stunts are required.

Jumanji also stars Nick Jonas, Ser’Darius Blain, Madison Iseman, Alex Wolff, and Morgan Turner, with Johnson, Hart, Black and Gillan playing their “avatars” within the world of Jumanji (as per ComingSoon). That sounds an awful lot like Jumanji may have migrated from board game to video game, though that’s not been confirmed as of yet.

Jumanji is set for release at the end of July 2017.

The upcoming Jumanji movie -- which is apparently not a remake or reboot, according to star Dwayne Johnson -- has added another familiar face to its already impressive cast, with Doctor Who and Guardians of the Galaxy actress Karen Gillan joining the project.

Sony Pictures confirmed Gillan's involvement in the film, which already features Johnson in a lead role, along with Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Nick Jonas. The film is expected to begin production next month.

The Fast and Furious franchise may be hotter than ever, but parts of the Fast 8 set have literally been cold as ice lately. Low temperatures don't seem to be slowing Dwayne Johnson down, though. The actor recently showed off two new photos from the set and referred to himself as "The Iceman."

The most recent photo, posted on social media Tuesday, shows Johnson as his Fast 8 character, Luke Hobbs. In the image, he is standing outside a building with a massive gun. There is snow on the ground, but he doesn't even seem to notice it, even though he's wearing just a T-shirt, pants, and fingerless gloves, in spite of the chill.

Baywatch is getting a fresh look thanks to its upcoming movie reboot, but luckily, we don't have to wait till it hits theaters in 2017 to get an idea of what to expect. Star and producer Dwayne Johnson has made a habit of providing project updates on social media, and today he revealed the first photo of the Baywatch movie cast.

The photo features Johnson and co-stars Zac Efron (Neighbors, Dirty Grandpa), Alexandra Daddario (San Andreas), model-slash-actress Kelly Rohrbach, Ilfenesh Hadera (HBO's Show Me a Hero), and Jon Bass (Big Time in Hollywood, FL). As you'd expect, the group is shown strutting around the beach in their lifeguard garb. Their uniforms have gotten an update, though; while the series' iconic red is incorporated into their swimwear, there's a lot more blue than we remember seeing before.
