It's our last show of the year as we review Jumanji - Welcome to the Jungle and look back at 2017's year in films!

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is a 2017 American action adventure comedy film directed by Jake Kasdan and written by Kasdan, Chris McKenna, Erik Sommers, Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner, from a story by McKenna. A standalone sequel to Jumanji (1995), the film stars Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, Nick Jonas and Bobby Cannavale. The film's plot set twenty-one years after the first film, follows four teenagers who are transported into the video game world of Jumanji, and, playing as the characters they chose, must beat the game in order to return to the real world. It is also a tribute to Robin Williams, star of the original film, who died in 2014.

Principal photography began in Hawaii in September 2016. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle premiered at the Grand Rex in Paris on December 5, 2017 and was released in the United States in 3D on December 20, 2017. The film received generally positive reviews from critics, who called it a "pleasant surprise" and praised the cast, and has grossed $121 million worldwide.
