New Welcome To The Jungle Trailer Lands
Van Damme prepares for jungle impact

26 November 2013  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen  |  Source: YouTube

It's like the '80s never went away. Anything Arnold Schwarnegger can do*, Jean-Claude Van Damme can do, well, too. Seeing Arnie's latest get a promo, JCVD has launched his riposte, Welcome To The Jungle, into the world. Here's the film's new trailer to check out.



The premise, one that William Golding will be kicking himself for not coming up with, sees teambuilding coach Van Damme lead a group of white-collar types when their wilderness seminar gets a whole lot more wildernessy that they'd planned for. The good news? JCVD is also a shit-kicking ex-soldier. The bad? He was a Marine, not a Foreign Legionnaire. We'd have preferred him to be a Foreign Legionnaire. Oh well.

Among the imperilled deskbound types are Adam Brody, Rob Huebel, Kristen Schaal and Megan Boone, with Dennis Haysbert also popping up. In the midst of this Lord Of The Flies-like scenario it soon falls to office schleb Chris (Brody) to stand up and be counted, presumably while Van Damme is off kicking the hell out of some trees.

There's no UK release for Welcome To The Jungle as yet, but US readers can catch it in cinemas and on VOD from February 7.

*And lest we forget, the big man cameoed in The Rock film of the same name in 2003

Is it bad that I still get excited whenever JCVD gets a shot at the cinema?
Please let this be as funny as the trailer looks:) More
