This Jumanji remake seems to really subscribe to the “rule” that if you have a female character in your ensemble lineup, she’s going to be overly sexualized.
It’s hard to not call this one out, especially given the way in which Johnson announced Gillan’s casting back in August.
Between those comments and this costume, it’s really hard to offer the benefit of the doubt to the movie.
In his Instagram photo, he shared the names of each of the characters, and in addition to Gillan’s character’s name (which is Ruby Roundhouse, by the way), he wrote, “Her jungle wardrobe will make sense when you know the plot.
The one hope to hold onto that might redeem this movie is that maybe Jumanji intends to be more of a parody, which wouldn’t be too far-fetched, considering the character names.
