Pairing Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt together for a family adventure is a no-brainer. They’re a winning pair that will make you hop on board Jungle Cruise. The legend of the Tears of the Moon tree has mystified explorers for centuries. It’s been said that one pink petal from the tree will cure any ailment. It’s the early 1900s and Emily Blunt plays Dr. Lily Houghton who sets out from England to the Amazon with her brother McGregor, played by Jack Whitehall, to find the Tears of the Moon. There she meets Frank Wolf, played by Dwayne Johnson, who owns a boat and knows his way around the river better than anyone else. She hires him to be their skipper despite a bumpy start to their relationship. She’s not the only one who wants the mythical tree. Jesse Plemons stars as the film’s main villain, German Prince Joachim who will stop at nothing to get his hands on Tears of the Moon.
