Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt Sail Down the Amazon in ‘Jungle Cruise’ Trailer (Video)
Friday, 11 October 2019 () The debut trailer for the upcoming Disney adventure flick “Jungle Cruise,” starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt, arrived on Friday morning and shows Johnson at his action-star best.
Playing a wily boat captain ushering a brother and sister (Jack Whitehall and Blunt) down the Amazon River as they look for a tree with extraordinary healing powers, Johnson navigates treacherous waters, athletically swings from tree branches, takes an inadvertent punch from Blunt in stride, and squares up to fight a shady villain.
“Of all the jungle cruises you could take in the Amazon, this one is undoubtedly the cheapest. But also the most thrilling,” Johnson says.
