‘Jungle Cruise’ Official Trailer Released
We were all eagerly looking forward to seeing the official trailer during the D23 Expo in late August. However, Disney didn’t show the official trailer than. All we got was a skewed teaser each from The Rock and Emily Blunt. Dwayne Johnson shared that this movie is all about “heroic men kicking ass and saving the girl.”
“We wanted to make a movie that was big, that was epic, had romance, big comedy, big action, and most importantly … it’s got me,” the Rock said the D23 Expo. Even though Blunt objected to this description, The Rock said, “You have to understand that the last time I was here at D23, I was in a movie where I was literally a demigod called Maui.” So, during their appearance, both actors discussed how big of a responsibility it was to bring ‘Jungle Cruise’ to life.
Walt Disney Studios released the first full-length trailer on October 11 and it’s packed with action. The trailer starts with a scene reminiscent of both Indiana Jones and The Mummy. Blunt’s character Lily takes a mislabeled artifact from a collection in London and escapes onto an open-top bus filled with soldiers. Then, Johnson and Blunt join their forces to discover whether the legend of “a tree in the Amazon that possesses unparalleled healing powers” is true.
The new, action-packed trailer abounds in fistfights, explosions, and boats approaching deadly waterfalls.
The filming of ‘Jungle Cruise’ was wrapped on September 28 and we can’t wait for it to hit theaters next year.
