I feel like a bad reporter for admitting this, but when I heard Alexander Payne -- the director of movies like Election, About Schmidt, Sideways, Nebraska and The Descendants -- was making a new film, I just assumed Gizmodo wouldn't cover it. I didn't even look into it. I knew I'd see it, probably love it, and it would probably be nominated for a bunch of awards. But I had no idea what it was actually about.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (the actual new title) won't open until Christmas in the US, but exhibitors got a first look at footage from the film at CinemaCon 2017. It revealed the not-so-secret premise; a connection to Robin Williams; and, frankly, a lot of fun, family-friendly action.
