Regal Cinema Melton: Film guide January 11 to 18 - Melton Times

Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle (12A) Jake Kasdan reimagines the classical ‘Jumanji’ board game when four badly behaved high school kids find a retro video game amongst some old junk they are clearing out for a detention. As they play, the teenagers are transformed into avatars they themselves created and whisked into the dense jungle on screen, with completion of the game the only escape. Dwayne Johnson leads the star-studded cast as gaming nerd Spencer in the character of Dr Smolder Bravestone, who accepts the challenge of decoding the game. Karen Gillian, Kevin Hart and Jack Black become the imaginary figures who must unite in their differences to take on the perilous trials of ‘Jumanji.’ High action intensity combines with vibrantly sleek special FX to transgress the boundaries between reality and the game. Friday and Thursday at 8.30pm, Saturday, Monday and Wednesday at 6pm, Sunday at 7.30pm.
