It’s tempting to say putting a huge amount of money into a movie based on a theme park ride sounds nuts. But then you think of a little film franchise called “Pirates of the Caribbean” and suddenly it doesn’t sound so crazy. “Jungle Cruise” sees Disney trying to strike gold yet again.
The first trailer for “Jungle Cruise” dropped late last week and I admit to being a little surprised. Right off the bat it gets points for casting Emily Blunt as its lead. She’s such a delightful actress full of energy and personality. And then they team her with someone else known for their energy and personality – Dwayne Johnson. The two look to be having a lot of fun and the jungle adventure angle has a ton of potential.
“Jungle Cruise” is slated for a July 24, 2020 release. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
