New Trailer: Disney’s “Jungle Cruise”

Originally published on Dark Horizons by Garth Franklin

Walt Disney Pictures has unveiled the third and most effects-fueled trailer for the Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt-led film adaptation of their popular Disneyland theme park ride “Jungle Cruise”.

The adventure-filled, Amazon-jungle expedition film – which takes heavy inspiration from the cinematic classic “The African Queen” though also seems to be channelling 1999’s “The Mummy” and Disney’s own “Pirates of the Caribbean” – has Johnson as a charismatic riverboat captain and Blunt as a determined explorer on a research mission.

Jack Whitehall, Jesse Plemons, Paul Giamatti and Edgar Ramírez co-star in the film with the first two finally getting some screen time in this new clip. The movie opens July 30th both in cinemas and on Disney+ via Premier Access.
