Are you ready for "The Next Chapter" of "Jumanji," and a new group of MIB?
Collider just shared some of the posters showing at the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas. Sony is promoting early posters for the sequel to "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle," and the spinoff to "Men in Black."
The 2017 "Jumanji" -- starring Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, and Jack Black -- was a sequel itself, to the 1995 Robin Williams movie. "Welcome to the Jungle" turned out to be Sony's highest-grossing domestic release of all time. So it wasn't too shocking when The Rock posted that they were working on a follow-up.
Meanwhile, the "Men in Black" movie is said to be an ensemble spinoff with new characters -- led by "Thor: Ragnarok" stars Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson -- and directed by F. Gary Gray ("The Fate of the Furious"). Liam Neeson was just announced to join in a role that will reportedly help start the film.
Here are the promo posters:
It's not clear yet whether the official title of "Jumanji 2" will be "Jumanji: The Next Chapter," but it has a decent ring to it.
More posters are sure to come closer to the release dates, probably emphasizing the cast members.
