From wrestling to acting, it only makes sense that the movies in the wildlife are the most fitting for The Rock, Dwayne Johnson.
From his appearance in The Rundown in 2003 to Jumanji in 2017 and now Jungle Cruise, if you’ve been following Dwayne Johnson’s movie career, it would be impossible not to catch the jungle fever.
On July 28, 2021, the wait will finally be over. The Rock fans will be able to catch a glimpse of the adaptation of Disney’s theme park ride, which features travelers making their way through a jungle that is filled with wild and dangerous animals. With a mix of magic, comedy, paranormal, and action, Disney's upcoming film, Jungle Cruise, is a full package for viewers.
Spoiler alert: Dwayne Johnson plays the role of the riverboat captain Frank Hoff with a guitar in his hand. He looks like an old chap who doesn’t believe all the supernatural beliefs that Emily Blunt holds.
The actress plays the role of Dr. Lily Houghton, an ambitious researcher, and explorer hoping to discover the jungle's mysteries. Her quest has led her to seek the help of the boatman, Frank Hoff, in making her journey into the jungle and finding a legendary tree that is rumored to exist at the heart of it.
Frank Hoff knows the Amazon very well, and the tale presented by this scientist Lily Houghton is actually one he has known of long before now. In his own attempts to find the tree over many years, he had failed and given up on the reality of the legend, but perhaps it is Dr. Lily Houghton who possesses the key to unlocking all the hidden mysteries.
The tree they seek is said to have magical properties that could heal all kinds of ailments and change the face of medicine forever. If it falls into the wrong hands, however, it could unleash a great evil.
The encounter between Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt is dramatic, funny, and extremely dangerous in this jungle which is home to several creatures hell-bent on killing them. Dr. Lily is certainly not afraid of anything as she bravely fights alongside Hoff to ward off threats.
Apart from the fact they have to worry about the jungle animals, there’s a German party with a warlike submarine attempting to get a hold of the same tree that gives life, and they are not taking kindly to the competition from our jungle crew. The boatman, the doctor, and her brother must fight their way and overcome many hurdles to reach their goals.
For Dr. Houghton, it’s the tree that would save humanity that she seeks. She wants to be able to save as many lives as possible. Frank Hoff's more interested in the money he will be paid for this expedition, his cat, and his liquor, according to Dwayne Johnson's Instagram post about the movie.
