Get out in theatres, watch our movies as safe as possible. But also 'Jungle Cruise' is a unique experience and it gives us a unique opportunity to allow everyone around the world to watch the movie how they want to watch the movie."Taking it to caption, he wrote, "The most important thing with our movie was to ALWAYS take care of families around the world by giving you options to watch it."'Jungle Cruise' movie's story centres around a brother (Jack Whitehall) and sister (Blunt) duo, who hire a boat captain (Johnson) to row them down the Amazon River as they are in pursuit of a tree believed to have healing powers.

Set in the early 20s and shot in some exotic locations, it is to be seen if Blunt, her brother and Johnson make it to the magical tree or not.
Spanish filmmaker Jaume Collet-Serra has directed the film inspired by the famous Disneyland theme park ride.
