Well, that’s a picture wrap on Dwayne Johnson @therock for our movie @disneysjunglecruise. I know I’ve overused the word “magical” during this almost six month shoot, but this has been a truly magical ✨ experience. I was raised in Florida and went to Disney World at least twice a year until I went to college. It sincerely was my favorite place on earth. 🌎🌍🌏 I rode the Jungle Cruise endlessly and still ride it today with my daughters. To have the great honor of adapting this ride into a major feature film with my brilliant partners @hhgarcia41@danygarciaco of @sevenbucksprod , @scotify of FlynnPicCo, #Davis Entertainment and of course the legendary @disneystudios is a dream come true. And I owe boundless thanks to this incredible person, on my right @therock for the opportunity, as he is personally responsible for me producing this movie and being a part of this magical ride. For that I’m eternally grateful. The iconic Walt Disney imagined, created and designed the Jungle Cruise ride 🌴🌺🚢 and he was even the first skipper!👨✈️Therefore we had to approach this film with the great responsibility of continuing his legacy when bringing it to the big screen for audiences to enjoy around the globe. 🌎 Dwayne created a memorable, iconic, salty, funny and soulful character in FRANK WOLFF, and I can’t wait for the audience to see his performance. It’s awe-inspiring to watch how Dwayne can consistently adapt and change keys at a moment’s notice. Speaking of keys 🎹 this multi-talent may, just may, even sing in the movie! 🎶🤞🏻 As Dwayne tips his hat often to Walt, I now tip my hat to Dwayne. Thank you my brother and dear friend for all your support, positivity, great energy, selflessness, sharp sense of humor and endless talent. You continually inspire us and everyone around you. You make us all better. 🙏🏻 It’s a joy to arrive at work daily and collaborate together. Let’s continue this adventure of a lifetime on Jungle Cruise and for as long as possible in our careers. Makes all the hard work very worth it. Cheers! 🥃 The fine tequila is on me. 🤟🏼 @disneysjunglecruise#ProfessorOfMana#CheersToForever#TwoSkippersWaltAndDwayne#StandingOnMyTipToes
Thank you @disneysjunglecruise from bottom of our hearts 💕 From top to bottom, every crew member on this movie 🎥 is truly the best at what they do. A+ talent 💯 We are honored and privileged to be surrounded by Oscar 🥇 winners, nominees and hands down the most dedicated, hard working department heads— achieving career defining work. We are in awe of their talent, creativity and all of the wonderful things they have accomplished on this film. It’s always bittersweet to wrap a movie, but we take solace knowing we will see them all again down the road. And a huge special thank you to @therock , #EmilyBlunt and @jcolletserra for being our gutsy skippers... guiding us so seamlessly through this incredible shoot! 🙌🏼 @therock#EmilyBlunt@edgarramirez25@jackwhitehall#JessePlemons#PaulGiamatti@realveronicafalcon@jcolletserra@michaelseanbailey@hhgarcia41@danygarciaco@scotify@sevenbucksprod#DavisEntertainment@disneystudios#Repost@therock ・・・ Walt Disney, this one’s for you buddy 💫 It’s very bittersweet to have something so uniquely special come to an end — but myself and my one and only virtuoso, Emily Blunt proudly say, that’s an official wrap of our epic DISNEY’S JUNGLE CRUISE. From deep in my bones, THANK YOU TO EVERYONE who invested their time and talents into making this movie a dream come true. The JUNGLE CRUISE ride was Walt Disney’s proud creation and has gone on to impact generations and bring pure joy and fun to families worldwide. We hope to deliver and make his spirit proud. Until then, I raise a glass of fine tequila 🥃 to my lady, Em aka “Pants” and our entire production crew, brilliant filmmakers and Disney family... cheers to the adventure of a lifetime. Cheers, to JUNGLE CRUISE. #ALittleDittyBoutFrankAndLily🚢🌴🗺❤️🥃
One of the great joys of being on the road during production is exploring new cities 🌃 ... primarily through our stomachs. We love getting to know a new city through it’s food, it’s restaurants and the people behind them. Atlanta is on the culinary cutting edge and has virtually become a second home for me; @justinanthony10 (on the far left) is paving the way in the restaurant scene and has become my Atlanta brother from another South African mother. He and his spectacular wife Kelly @wolfdesigngroup own the delicious, stylish (Kelly also designed) and welcoming Yebo Beach Haus among other fantastic restaurants and bars in the ATL area (Cape Dutch, 10 Degrees South, Biltong Bar and more to come). He tries to keep me all to himself 😜 but I’m grateful he finally introduced me to the incredibly talented @chefpano— co-owner and head chef of @kyma, arguably one of the best Greek Restaurants in the country. The best grilled octopus you will ever try— flown in fresh daily from Greece. And don’t miss the Lobster Morsels— dare you to just eat one. Chef Pano is also about to launch his first cookbook 📚 on * Wed Sep12 * so keep an 👁 out for #ModernGreekCooking coming soon to a home kitchen 🥘 near you. Check it out on Amazon! #FoodPictureCo#FoodFilmFamily#OurFavoriteThreePassions#TheATLCulinaryScene#Cuzzie@email@example.com@scotify
Having a front row seat to @therock’s incredible career trajectory as well as his personal growth over the past eight years has been one of the truly great privileges of my lifetime. We shot our first movie together, JOURNEY 2: THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND in Hawaii. It was extremely apparent to me that he had an abundance of respect for the Hawaiian culture, heritage and people there, and how the place where he was raised held such a special place in his heart and spirituality. His entire life he has dreamt of playing the role of King #Kamehameha, the first king, destined by prophecy, to unite the warring Hawaiian islands. Now it’s time for Dwayne to fulfill his destiny. For us, getting to work with the best & most talented partners in the biz @therock, @danygarciaco, @hhgarcia41@bslater on seven movies and gratefully counting is a sincere gift. And to add this already stellar team, Academy Award-winning director Robert Zemeckis, who’s had an absolutely legendary career and been the mastermind behind so many classic and iconic films, as well as Randall Wallace, Academy Award-nominated writer of one of our favorite movies of all time-- BRAVEHEART, is honestly a dream come true. We are so thrilled for this once in a lifetime opportunity and can’t wait to see @therock shine in the role he was born to play. #AKingShallRise#Mana#HawaiiTheBeautiful@firstname.lastname@example.org@wbpics@newlinecinema@rbpix@carblackwood@blairrich#Repost@therock ・・・ KA LA HIKI OLA. Dawning of a new day with hope and promise. Humbled & grateful to begin this once in a lifetime journey. KING KAMEHAMEHA - the legendary King was the first to unite the warring Hawaiian islands — fulfilling the prophecy that surrounded his fabled life since birth and creating the powerful & spiritual 50th state as we know it today. Academy Award winning director, #Robert Zemeckis (FORREST GUMP) will direct. Academy Award nominated writer, Randall Wallace (BRAVEHEART) will write. From the day I began my Hollywood career (2001), my dream was to bring this legacy to life. In Polynesian culture we have a belief, that something isn’t done when it’s ready...it’s done when it’s right. The time is right.
Greetings 👋🏼 from the set of @disneysjunglecruise! @therock absolutely nailed it. Jungle Cruise 🌴🚢 was one of the first attractions that guests had the opportunity to experience when Disneyland opened its gates in 1955. 63 years later, now operating across four parks around the globe 🌎 it continues to take families on the adventure of a lifetime. Our visionary🔮✨director @jcolletserra⚡️and brilliant 💫 production designer @jeanvincentpuzos have imagined and constructed one of the most visually arresting film sets in recent memory. 🌟 Bringing the ride to life 🎥 starts here in Kauai with these immersive, fully realized and practical sets. 🏝🌄 Welcome to the first ever set visit of JUNGLE CRUISE! Buckle your seatbelts... #ItsAJungleOutThere 🌴🌸🐆🐠🦀🕷🐝🦅🚤 @therock#EmilyBlunt@edgarramirez25@jackwhitehall#JessePlemons#PaulGiamatti@hhgarcia41@danygarciaco@scotify@sevenbucksprod#DavisEntertainment@disneystudios#Repost@therock ・・・ *watch ‘til the end and see one of the most awe inspiring & massive sets every built from scratch..👀 Walt Disney, this one’s for you buddy! 🧢 🤙🏾💫 Officially kicked off our @DisneysJungleCruise start of production with great respect, love, energy & mana. How cool is it that in 1955 when Disneyland first opened, Walt Disney himself, imagined and designed the first ever JUNGLE CRUISE ride. And he was the ride’s first skipper as well! A role that now I have the honor of bringing to life along with my incomparable co-star Emily Blunt ❤️ Heartfelt MAHALO to my home state of HAWAII for once again being a beautiful and exotic backdrop for one of my films. And for welcoming me and a big production back to the islands to help boost some economics and help our hard working locals and businesses. Honestly, this role is a dream come true and my gratitude & motivation to deliver something great is boundless. And now I need a drink 🤯🥃. Welcome to the adventure of a lifetime. #JUNGLECRUISE 🚢 🗺🌴❤️
Pretty cool to support the future of the industry through internship programs. A belated celebration of all interns for #NationalInternDay!! #Repost@ms.wendyjane ・・・ A day late for #NationalInternDay, but here I am with the awesome @flynnpictureco Summer 2018 #Flynnterns. Today was special as we just had our annual Flynntern lunch! We share a meal, spend some quality time together and each intern gets the opportunity to practice (and get feedback) on the ever important skill of the “Hollywood pitch.” So impressed by this summer’s crop!! So proud of everyone’s work today, and amazed by how many original ideas we had in the room. Internships are so important in our industry— to get your foot in the door and dip your toe in real Hollywood water. My fellow FPC exec @scotify and I actually met at my first ever internship @villageroadshow over 10 years ago! We were friends for years before he started working at @flynnpictureco. That’s one small example of never knowing where your internships will take you! We always support our interns when they are looking for jobs and nothing makes us prouder than seeing our Flynnterns go on to be very successful throughout the industry. Excited to celebrate National Intern Day! Today we salute you #Flynnterns and thank you for all of your great work! 🇺🇸
So thoughtfully and intelligently articulated @therock! Big thank you to Jim Amos and @forbes for the thoughtful and insightful reporting. Our domestic audience is incredibly important to us. However, we live and work in a global economy, so it’s important for us to make films that travel around the world. Especially as different cultural ideals travel across borders so easily now. We’ve been focusing on building a brand of global entertainment for over 10 years now. It’s our greatest honor to make to make films for the global audience! As the world and the film business continues to change, it’s important we disrupt old divided thinking and start thinking of the audience as one.✌🏻One World 🌎 🌏🌍#Repost@therock ・・・ Surprise! Thank you fans for making SKYSCRAPER a global box office hit 👏🏾🤙🏾👊🏾 Thanks Jim Amos & Forbes for the smart and refreshing journalism. It’s astounding to me, my team and all my studio partners (and parent companies) how many Hollywood press “experts” refuse to recognize our industry is a global business and our domestic market is now just one of many worldwide territories. Within a week or so, SKYSCRAPER will cross a quarter of a billion dollars at the box office with almost an incredible 75% of those earnings coming from overseas. The movie will profit - bottom line. This is the reality. Global economy. My friends in the press (not all, but some) be expansive with your thoughts when you report our business and don’t get pulled into the sludge of our clickbait era and don’t be afraid to disrupt your old school mentality. Forward thinking always wins the game. #GlobalMarket #AudienceFirst #1MovieInTheWorld #SKYSCRAPER
So grateful to reach this rare and awesome achievement! 🙏🏻🙏🏻 Thank you so much to all the fans for making #SKYSCRAPER the #1 movie in the world. 🌏🌍🌎 We appreciate the love so much and we will continue making movies to entertain you for as long as you will let us!! 🤗🌇🔥#Repost@therock ・・・ #1 worldwide baby! C’mon 👊🏾 Like many of you, I live AND LOVE to compete. Last weekend, SKYSCRAPER came up a little short here in the US by $5M - tracking had us opening at $30M but we stumbled out of the gate with a $25M opening. Many “experts” wrote me off and said Skyscraper was a flop. But wait experts, I’m a chess player and still have a whole game left to play 👀💁🏾♂️ This past weekend, SKYSCRAPER got back up, licked its wounds, came out swinging and became the #1 MOVIE IN THE WORLD. And was awarded by Chinese audiences the #1 MOVIE IN CHINA with a huge almost $50M opening weekend. Our film will cross $200M this coming weekend and eventually become profitable for all investors - and that’s all that matters in the end game. Sorry MAMA MIA 2 and EQUALIZER 2, thank you both for the fight, but there can only be one #1. Now of course, I’m preparing to take a right cross KO to face this weekend by Tom’s Mission Impossible 😂😂 but hey, BRING IT ON, because I live and love to compete. THANK YOU FANS WORLDWIDE for making us #1. #AudienceFirst#1MovieInTheWorld#SKYSCRAPER🔥
