When it comes to blockbuster stars they don’t get much bigger than Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt, and now these two dynamic performers join forces for a movie that recalls all the moments of those grand old adventure films in Jungle Cruise.
Watch the action-packed new trailer below:
Here’s the full synopsis:
Set during the early 20th century, a riverboat captain named Frank (Johnson) takes scientist Lily Houghton (Blunt) and her brother on a mission into a jungle to find the Tree of Life which is believed to possess healing powers. All the while, the trio must fight against dangerous wild animals and a competing German expedition.
If you’re looking for adventure then Disney’s Jungle Cruise is exactly the picture you’ve been waiting for with it’s through back to classic adventure films such as Raiders of the Lost Ark and The African Queen, and the production design and world- building on this project looks absolutely amazing.
Director Jaume Collet-Serra takes audiences deep into the hearts of the Amazon as intrepid scientific explorer Lily Houghton (Blunt) hires rough and tumble riverboat guide Frank (Johnson) to help her down the river and there’s sure to be plenty of action that follows.
Jungle Cruise has a great mix of action and comedy on hand, and Dwayne Johnson looks to be having a blast as Frank, a riverboat captain who has a real Bogart flair about him, and when joining forces with Blunt’s Lily Houghton, who jumps headfirst into the action without looking, well, you can bet that this film is going to be a whole lot of fun.
Prepare for a wild time when Jungle Cruise arrives in cinemas next year on July 23, 2020.
