Jumanji gets a 21st century reboot

HOT on the heels of his turn in Baywatch, Dwayne Johnson is rebooting another '90s favourite.

The athlete-turned-actor stars opposite comedy heavyweights Jack Black and Kevin Hart in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.

In the first trailer released today, four teenagers are sucked into the world of Jumanji when they discover an old video game console.

They are thrust into the game's jungle setting and into the bodies of their avatars played by Johnson, Black, Hart and Karen Gillan.

Nick Jonas, Bobby Cannavale and Rhys Darby also star in the reboot.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle opens in cinemas on Boxing Day.
