Filming has begun on Jumanji, the next movie in the fantasy adventure series starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, and Jack Black.
To mark the occasion, The Rock has shared the first image from the movie, with the cast in full costume standing in the jungle. Johnson has said that the movie is more of a continuation of the story told in the original 1995 movie starring Robin Williams than a remake, and judging by the image it looks like at least part of the movie will be taking us to the other side of the mysterious board game.
The sequel to, or continuation of, the 1995 adventure film Jumanji has found its female lead.
The film, which currently stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, and Nick Jonas, has now added Guardians of the Galaxy star Karen Gillan, who will reportedly play a key role. More on the story below.

Weird Loners premiered last week on FOX and did provide us with some giggles. After a brief recap of last week’s episode, you will get a review of tonight’s.
It’s a comedy – there’s not much in the way of spoilers.
Last week on Weird Loners 1.1 “Pilot,” we were introduced to the foursome who are more than weird, they are incredibly eccentric. Originally, Eric (Nate Torrence) and Caryn (Becki Newton) are neighbors. He lives with his dad, and she has a much younger roommate. But his dad dies and her roommate has one too many naked guys running out of the house, so they find themselves alone. But not for long. Eric’s cousin Stosh (Zachary Knighton) finds himself out of a job (for sleeping with everybody’s wives and girlfriends), therefore out of the company apartment, so “generously” offers to stay with Eric so he’s not so alone. Zara (Meera Rohit Kumbhani) escorts Eric home after buying art, and since she walked out on her fiance and apartment, finds Caryn a willing landlord. Caryn almosts decides to marry a boring guy to not be alone, but sparks do fly between her and Stosh. It was a funny episode.

One of my favorite things about being a TV reviewer is trying out pilots, because it’s filled with possibilities. Is this going to be the new breakout show? Is the lead actor going to be my next crush? Will it scare me? Will I laugh out loud?
Pilots also come with lower expectations because sometimes there’s a big backstory to tell, and sometimes it’s just that you haven’t connected with the characters yet. You need a little more time. And if it’s only a half hour (approximately 23 minutes without commercials), well… that’s just the cherry on top of the Mike TeaVee cake.
