Watch The Jungle Cruise Trailer Starring Dwayne Johnson & Emily Blunt

Walt Disney Pictures has released the official trailer for Jaume Collet-Serra’s upcoming action-adventure film Jungle Cruise.

Disney’s Jungle Cruise is an adventure-filled, Amazon-jungle expedition starring Dwayne Johnson as the charismatic riverboat captain, Frank Wolff and Emily Blunt as a determined explorer on a research mission, Dr. Lily Houghton.

Lily travels from London, England to the Amazon jungle and enlists Frank’s questionable services to guide her downriver on La Quila—his ramshackle-but-charming boat. Lily is determined to uncover an ancient tree with unparalleled healing abilities—possessing the power to change the future of medicine. Thrust on this epic quest together, the unlikely duo encounters innumerable dangers and supernatural forces, all lurking in the deceptive beauty of the lush rainforest. But as the secrets of the lost tree unfold, the stakes reach even higher for Lily and Frank and their fate—and mankind’s—hangs in the balance.

Jaume Collet-Serra (Non-Stop, The Shallows) directed the film from a story by Glenn Ficarra & John Requa and Michael Green with Ficarra and Requa also serving as the screenwriters.

The film will hit theaters on July 24, 2020.

Black Adam Starring Dwayne Johnson To Be Released On December 22, 2021

Dwayne Johnson took to Instagram to share the first concept art poster for his highly-anticipated DC movie Black Adam, giving us our first look at Jonnson as the titular anti-hero. In his post, he has also announced the official release date for the Warner Bros. Pictures film which is set for release on December 22, 2021. The image was created by digital artist Boss Logic and DC Comics artist Jim Lee.

“Like most kids growing up, I dreamed about being a superhero,” Johnson wrote. “Having cool superpowers, fighting for what’s right and always protecting the people. It all changed for me, when I was 10 years old and was first introduced to the greatest superhero of all time – Superman. As a kid, Superman was the hero I always wanted to be. But, a few years into my fantasy, I realized that Superman was the hero, I could never be. I was too rebellious. Too rambunctious. Too resistant to convention and authority. Despite my troubles, I was still a good kid with a good heart – I just liked to do things my way. Now, years later as a man, with the same DNA I had as a kid – my superhero dreams have come true. I’m honored to join the iconic DC Universe and it’s a true pleasure to become, Black Adam. Black Adam is blessed by magic with the powers equal to Superman, but the difference is he doesn’t toe the mark or walk the line. He’s a rebellious, one of a kind superhero, who’ll always do what’s right for the people – but he does it his way. Truth and justice – the Black Adam way. This role is unlike any other I’ve ever played in my career and I’m grateful to the bone we’ll all go on this journey together.”

Dwayne Johnson has been working on Black Adam for 10 years. The character was originally supposed to appear in this year’s Shazam! but decided to save his highly-anticipated debut for a later film in order to let each character get some breathing room. However, despite not appearing in Shazam!, his character was teased with the wizard Shazam, played by Djimon Hounsou (Guardians of the Galaxy), telling his origin story to Billy Batson.

Based on the DC Comics character created by Otto Binder and C.C. Beck, Black Adam will be directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (The Shallows) with Johnson starring as the titular anti-hero. The film will be the second collaboration between Collet-Serra and Johnson, who have also been working together on Disney’s forthcoming adventure film Jungle Cruise.

The film will be produced by Johnson and FlynnPicturesCo’s Beau Flyn along with Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia of Seven Bucks Productions. Scott Sheldon will be overseeing the project for FlynnPictureCo.

Watch The New Rampage Trailer Featuring Dwayne Johnson

As these newly created monsters tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to half a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.

Serving as executive producers are Marcus Viscidi, Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, and Jeff Fierson, with Wendy Jacobson co-producing. The screenplay was penned by Ryan Engle and Adam Sztykiel, and the story is by Ryan Engle.

Dwayne Johnson (The Fate of the Furious, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) calls on the everyday man and woman with athletic ability and ambition for greatness to join him on The Titan Games on NBC where they can prove themselves in epic physical competition.

Dany Garcia, co-founder of Seven Bucks Production alongside Johnson, also said during the announcement, “With ‘The Titan Games,’ we wanted to create a platform that would allow competitors of the highest caliber to be tested on multiple levels, to grow, to battle for success and ultimately be given their moment in the spotlight.” She also said, “We have found the perfect collaborators in NBC, Universal Television Alternative Studio and A. Smith & Co. Productions to bring this all to life.”

The Titan Games is produced by Universal Television Alternative Studio, A. Smith & Co. Productions and Seven Bucks Productions. Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, Hiram Garcia, Brian Gewirtz and Toby Gorman will be the executive producers.
