It happens with nice regularity. When a big Hollywood blockbuster comes out, Asylum has a mockbuster to match. In the past, this was primarily aimed at fools. In the age of video stores, the hope was that unsuspecting customers would think, when they looked at the display: «I just saw a TV ad for — now it’s already on DVD?!» and grabbed it. Even today, one will certainly still reckon that one or the other is subject to this error when scrolling through the streaming offer from Amazon Prime Video, iTunes and Co. But the mockbusters have long had their own fan base, which helps to make the projects very profitable for Asylum.
When the Disney adventure Jungle Cruise was released in 2021, Asylum also released Jungle Run at the same time . The adventure, subtitled “The Secret of the Jungle God” in Germany, will be shown on TELE 5 this Tuesday, April 3, from 10 p.m. If you miss it or don’t want any commercial breaks, you can rent or buy the film from Amazon Prime Video and then stream it directly.

But let’s be honest: Unless you’re really in the mood for a beery trash evening, we can’t recommend «Jungle Run» to you. Better watch the trailer then. The preview is only a good 90 seconds, but it has everything you need to catch the trash and have a little fun.
