Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle may be one of the most authentic video gaming movie I’ve ever seen. Match that with a weird Breakfast Club/Indiana Jones vibe and the result is two hours of pure, high energy fun.
The Blu-ray release adds the original Jumanji (and its boatload of features) to th mix.
Before you see Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, check out the Blu-ray™ and/or 4K Ultra HD™ release of the original Jumanji – starring Robin Williams, Kirsten Dunst and Bonnie Hunt – and directed by Joe (Captain America: The First Avenger) Johnson.

The crowd-pleasing (if not critically appreciated) trio of Night at the Museum movies come to a close with Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb. This time, Security guard Larry (Ben Stiller) and his lively assortment of historical figures (Robin Williams, Ben Kingsley, Owen Wilson, et al) must journey to London, England when the magic that brings the museum to life at night appears to be waning.
Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb comes to life on December 19th.
A few years following Larry Daley’s (Ben Stiller) first adventure as night watchman in New York City’s Museum of Natural History, Daley discovers that his friends, the exhibits which come to life, are now being shipped to the Smithsonian museums in Washington, D.C. Upon arrival however, Daley’s old compatriots now find themselves battling against a whole slew of new, evil exhibits bent on conquering the world.
Hollywood has come to Washington D.C., as Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian, the sequel to the 2006 family hit movie debuts in the museum’s backyard. Since most of the action takes place in and around the famed exhibits surrounding the National Mall, the cast and crew decided to come promote the film by holding a press conference in the Smithsonian Castle.
Sitting before me was a star-studded lineup including: Ben Stiller, Amy Adams, Owen Wilson, Robin Williams, Rick Gervais, Hank Azaria, director Shawn Levy and writers Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon.
Stiller started things off by talking a little bit about his character of Larry, and how it felt like the right time to revisit the series. He mentioned how Larry is no longer really happy in his life, and he finds himself needing that bit of adventure back, which is what launches the story.
