Your Daily Nerd Thing: Jumanji welcome to the jungle

Welcome to Your Daily Nerd Thing where every weekday we bring you a different nerdy thing we found on the internet.  Today we bring you a movie trailer that dropped this week for Jumanji: Welcome to the jungle.

There is still a cursed game with a jungle setting but no other direct links to the previous film.  I did not think much about this film when I first heard it was being made.  I liked the original Jumanji but was not really interested in a sequel.  To be honest the first thing that made me at all interested in this movie was the cast photo revealing Karen Gillan in a belly shirt.  They are acknowledging the double standard of her outfit right away and explaining it away with the video game angle.  But does acknowledging a sexist trope really do anything to alleviate it when you still went out of you way to use it?  That is still a matter for debate.  I just know the idea of Karen Gillan as a sexy jungle adventure character kicking ass appeals to me even if I still feel indifferent towards everything else about the movie.
