Of all the jungle boats sailing down the Amazon, Frank’s (Dwayne Johnson) river cruise is undoubtedly the cheapest – but also famously the most thrilling. Guiding his passengers over the murky waters, he evades what he says is the dangerous wildlife and attacks from tricky local marauders.
Meanwhile, ambitious scientist Lily (Emily Blunt) has been hunting for a fabled key that unlocks the legendary healing powers of an ancient Amazonian tree. Finally discovering the historic artefact, she makes her way to the jungle in search of the mythical tree.
Despite his regular jungle cruises, Frank is struggling to balance the books. So, when the skipper meets Lily, he jumps at the chance of earning a small fortune by taking the determined explorer and her brother (Jack Whitehall) on the risky crossing upriver.
But the cursed jungle has many hidden perils lurking in the shadows, and they’re not the only ones seeking to benefit from the sacred tree…
Based on the popular Disney theme park ride of the same name, this family adventure set in the early 20th century is directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (The Shallows, Non-Stop, Unknown).
Jungle Cruise co-producer Dwayne Johnson (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Baywatch, Moana) also stars alongside Emily Blunt (Mary Poppins Returns, Into the Woods, The Devil Wears Prada) and Jack Whitehall (The Bad Education Movie, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, Fresh Meat).
