VIDEO: Emily Blunt Punches Dwayne Johnson Right in the Nose in New ‘Jungle Cruise’ Trailer
Paul Giamatti, Edgar Ramírez, and a villainous Jesse Plemons also co-star in the Disney adventure flickMay 28, 2021
Just as moviegoers are getting used to seeing Emily Blunt stay silent in “A Quiet Place Part II,” the Stern Show guest’s next film “Jungle Cruise” is serving up a cacophony of crashes, clangs, and a quick jab to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s nose in a new trailer released Thursday. Blunt’s adventure begins as her character, Dr. Lily Houghton, steps off a steam-engine train and onto a riverboat that will hopefully take her to a magical tree she’s anxious to find.
“It will change medicine forever,” she says of the tree’s supposed healing powers.
While Blunt’s boat captain Frank (Johnson) is all-in on the mission, a German-accented bad guy played by Jesse Plemons will stop at nothing to stop her from completing her mission. And he has a submarine, two machine guns, and torpedoes to do just that.
When Emily talked to Howard earlier this month, she had nothing but nice things to say about her time on set with “The Rock,” going so far as to call him “the most polite man I have ever met.” She also doled out praise for her “Devil Wears Prada” co-star Meryl Streep, her real-life friend Benicio del Toro, and her own husband, John Krasinski, who returned to direct Emily in “A Quiet Place Part II.” She opened up about working with him and how many people thought the horror film would lead to the couple getting a divorce. Check out the clip (below).
“Jungle Cruise” splashes into theaters and Disney+ on July 24.
