So Emily Blunt‘s Lily Houghton is basically Indiana Jones — a smart-assed, two-fisted, kick-boxing Jackie Chan-like scientist searching for a tree’s magical cure a la Medicine Man. And Dwayne Johnson‘s Frank is a smirking, Hawaiian-born body builder who has tried and failed to model himself on Humphrey Bogart‘s Charlie Allnut.
For what it’s worth, Dwayne’s river boat is much cooler than Allnut’s African Queen. Jungle Cruise opens on 7.24.20. Director Jaume Collet-Serra is shameless, but then you knew that.
