"Audience first ☝🏾" Johnson added. "Let's own our 2021 comeback as we get back into the swing of life — ALL ABOARD!!"

In Jungle Cruise, Blunt, 38, plays Lily Houghton, a researcher aiming to find Lagrimas de Cristal who hires Johnson's character, Frank, a river guide tasked with guiding her to it.

"There is a legend in the jungles of the Amazon of a tree that heals all," Lily tells Frank, as shown in a trailer released last March. "It could change the world, but if it gets into the wrong hands it could awaken a great evil."

"But you've never had the key," she responds, holding a rock-like pendant in her hand.

The pair embark on a great adventure, traversing the jungle in search of the tree. Along the way, they encounter various dangers and obstacles — hissing snakes, leopards on the attack and a human-manned submarine that seems intent on getting in their way.

"I've been looking for this tree longer than anybody. I've tracked the legend of every village, every island. Nothing," Frank says. "You're searching for something that can't be found."

"I am not afraid," Blunt's Lily says, as a leopard comes her way.

The film, based on the Jungle Cruise attraction at the Disneyland Resort, also stars Édgar Ramírez, Jack Whitehall, Jesse Plemons and Paul Giamatti.
