New adventures of “Jumanji” get wild with trailer music from The Hit House.

Columbia Pictures created a second installment in the Jumanji film franchise with Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which picks up 21 years from where the original film left off. Based off of the 1981 eponymous children’s book by Chris Van Allsburg, Jumani: Welcome to the Jungle opened on December 20, 2017 & has crushed box office records with $822M worldwide, making it the 9th highest-grossing film in 2017. Looking to add a certain “je ne sais quoi” spirit of adventure to this French TV spot, The Hit House’s track “Incandescence,” by William August Hunt, from our “KINETIC RE:ACTION” trailer music album, plays from 0:10-20.

Directed by Jake Kasdan, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, tells the tale of 4 teenagers whose world is literally sucked inside-out as during detention at school they literally become trapped in the world of Jumanji. After finding an old video game console at their high school they unexpectedly discover themselves in the jungle setting of the video game with the bodies of avatars played by Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, & Karen Gillan. As they progress in the most dangerous adventure of their lives, they find themselves not so much playing the game, as the game playing them, with the stakes being a loss meaning they’ll be stuck in the game forever!

Next time your campaign is in the tall grass, surrounded by predators & without a way out, look to The Hit House. We’ll light the beacon, sound the clarion call, deliver the music & make sure we all safely get out of the weeds & together make your trailer a winning one for everyone!
