Jumanji Sequel To Square Off Against Star Wars Episode IX

The end of Star Wars’ current trilogy has long been pencilled in for a December 2019 release — an immovable object in the blockbuster landscape. But J.J. Abrams’ return to the galaxy far, far away is about to face some unexpected competition in the form of an unstoppable force: Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.

Following the huge success of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which currently sits at a box office total of just under $1 billion worldwide, it looks like a third Jumanji film will be coming to the big screen in — you guessed it — December 2019. Speaking at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, Sony Pictures chairman Tom Rothman said: "I'd bet on seeing Dwayne Johnson in theaters again in December 2019. Don't rush to give all those screens to Star Wars.”

Despite an opening weekend of $36 million in the US, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle went on to gross $404 million in the States alone. Of course, the Star Wars team won’t be too worried — even with Jumanji and The Greatest Showman proving robust competitors in December, and despite that fan backlash, The Last Jedi still went on to score $1.3 billion worldwide. And expect anticipation to be even higher for Episode IX, what with it being the closing chapter of the current Skywalker trilogy.

Outrageously fun and deeply affecting, Swiss Army Man is a gonzo buddy comedy that is the feature film debut of acclaimed music video directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (collectively known as DANIELS, and responsible for the visionary “Turn Down For What” video, among many others). Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.

Hank (Paul Dano) is stranded on a deserted island, having given up all hope of ever making it home again. But one day everything changes when a corpse named Manny (Daniel Radcliffe) washes up on shore; the two become fast friends…
