This morning brings an all new trailer (and poster) for Disney’s Jungle Cruise, featuring a load of action, whimsy, and more details on the overall story.
The first trailer for Jungle Cruise certainly piqued my interest, but today’s all new trailer has me completely sold and ready to watch:
I like getting some more clarification on the overall story and the action looks like a lot of fun, with some great banter between Emily Blunt and Dwayne Johnson. It really feels like a blend of The Mummy (the good one with Brendan Fraser), Indiana Jones, and Pirates of the Caribbean and I’m very excited to see if they can pull it off.
I’m also digging this old-school styled poster with it’s Romancing the Stone vibes:
Join fan favorites Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt for the adventure of a lifetime on Disney’s “Jungle Cruise,” a rollicking thrill-ride down the Amazon with wisecracking skipper Frank Wolff and intrepid researcher Dr. Lily Houghton. Lily travels from London, England to the Amazon jungle and enlists Frank’s questionable services to guide her downriver on La Quila—his ramshackle-but-charming boat. Lily is determined to uncover an ancient tree with unparalleled healing abilities—possessing the power to change the future of medicine. Thrust on this epic quest together, the unlikely duo encounters innumerable dangers and supernatural forces, all lurking in the deceptive beauty of the lush rainforest. But as the secrets of the lost tree unfold, the stakes reach even higher for Lily and Frank and their fate—and mankind’s—hangs in the balance.
Jungle Cruise hits theaters on July 24, 2020.
