Walt Disney Pictures has unveiled the first trailer and poster for Jungle Cruise. Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt star in the adaptation of the popular Disney theme park ride.
There was another movie based on a Disney ride that kick-started this entire sequence – Pirates Of The Caribbean. Squint, and remember it’s not Jumanji either, and you can see it in the DNA. A touch of the Brendan Fraser Mummy movies too?
The Amazon-jungle expedition film is said to take inspiration from the cinematic classic The African Queen. It looks fun enough. Will it reach the Jumanji level of being way, way better than it has any right to be?
Jack Whitehall, Jesse Plemons, Paul Giamatti, and Èdgar Ramírez co-star in the film which opens July 24th next year.
