Considering how loved the 1995 original starring the late great Robin Williams and a young Kirsten Dunst proved to be, initial talk of a new version was bound to prove divisive.

Nevertheless, Sony Pictures have unleashed a brand-new trailer today for Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle, which certainly ups the ante on its previous teaser in the action stakes.

It also provides a further look at how it intends to incorporate classic video game tropes into the film with the classic strength/weakness breakdown of the characters’s ‘special skills’, along with serving up various comedic exchanges between its ensemble consisting of Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillian.

Directed by Bad Teacher and Walk Hard director Jake Kasdan, Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle arrives in UK cinemas just in time for Christmas (20th December).
