Disney has dropped the first trailer for their latest attempt at turning one of their theme park rides into a movie franchise - this time with the adventure movie JUNGLE CRUISE starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt. The first trailer pairs Blunt's optimistic explorer with Johnson's charming, con-man boat captain as she hires him to take her across the river as she hunts down a legendary tree. It's just like AFRICAN QUEEN with Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn, but with more CGI snakes and a greater chance of Captain Marvel flying by.

The first trailer recalls the early days of Disney's PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN franchise, sporting an old-school adventure movie feel with some charismatic lead performers and a sense of pure excitement. We're mostly getting an intro to the characters and the story here, but there are glimpses at the kind of action anyone should expect from both a Disney movie and a Johnson vehicle. That means an expensive-looking set piece and a big fight scene where Johnson throws a thug through some sort of barrier. So, if you're the kind of person who has itches for both Disney and Johnson action, this movie seems like it will scratch them both. And then you have the charm of Blunt to elevate it all even more, so really, it's win-win-win.

Jaume Collet-Serra (THE SHALLOWS) directs with Edgar Ramirez, Jack Whitehall, Jesse Plemons, and Paul Giamatti co-starring.

Könnte der erste Film sein, den ich mir aufgrund seiner geradezu Brechreiz verursachenden Farbfilterung nicht ansehen werde.

ZitatMetallica to compose special music for Disney's Jungle Cruise

If the boat in Disney's JUNGLE CRUISE is a-rockin' it's likely due to the fact that Metallica has come a-knockin'.

The legendary heavy metal band Metallica are set to raise their horns while composing music for Disney's JUNGLE CRUISE, which is based on the popular Disney Parks ride and stars Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt. It's recently been revealed that Metallica will create an orchestral version of their 1991 hit "Nothing Else Matters" with composer James Newton Howard, specifically for the upcoming film. Previously, the band had presented fans with an orchestral version of the song for their live 1991 album S&M (an abbreviation of Symphony and Metallica).

"It really goes back to [Disney production president] Sean Bailey, who is a lifelong rock fan," Metallic drummer Lars Ulrich recently explained to Collider, "and is just all-around one of the greatest, most friendly, generous, warm, and embracing people you'll find in the music business."

As it turns out, Metallica became a part of the Jungle Cruise score at Bailey's request.

"We've gotten to know each other well," said Ulrich. "My wife and I are big Disney fans, so there's a great friendship there, and he's always looked for the right match where there was a way that Metallica could contribute to some project of theirs. This was the right fit, with Sean leading the calvary, and with James Newton Howard and his track record, and what he's done."
