The first trailer for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has dropped and it doesn’t seem half bad.

It starts off looking like an horrendous knock-off of the Breakfast Club; there’s the jock, the nerd, the princess, and possibly the rebel – jury’s still out on that last one.

They get thrown into a filthy basement in detention, and told to clean it up. Being naughty little sods, they decide to bunk off and play a video game on a dusty old console instead. Next thing you know they’ve been sucked into the game, taking the form of their avatars, and have to play their way through it to get back to the real world.

Could this be the super secret Atari Box we’ve heard whispers of? I doubt it. But it looks like an old Atari that got itself some magic powers.

It sounds super cheesy, but the trailer looks fun. The four avatars are played by Dwayne Johnson (and his eyebrows), Kevin Heart, Jack Black, and Karen Gillian.

The movie is releasing later this year on December 20.
