Right then we’re in full swing of April and what is still, technically, a new month. In addition to many other things including a much welcome flood of holidays, the month of April signals a new DVD line up from our friends at Ster Kinekor Entertainment. An impressive list it is, this month’s line up is headlined by the likes of Jumanji, Amityville The Awakening, Brad’s Status, The Exception, Wind River, Molly’s Game, Wonder Wheel and many more. Check out the full list below:
In a brand-new Jumanji adventure, four high school kids discover an old video game console and are drawn into the game’s jungle setting, literally becoming the adult avatars, they chose. What they discover is that you don’t just play Jumanji – you must survive it. To beat the game and return to the real world, they’ll have to go on the most dangerous adventure of their lives, discover what Alan Parrish left 20 years ago, and change the way they think about themselves – or they’ll be stuck in the game forever, to be played by others without break.
