Jungle Cruise: Dwayne Johnson y Emily Blunt juegan a Indiana Jones


They are together for the interview with Clarion, via Zoom. They have not given individual marks, and it shows during the 10 minutes allotted to Clarion that Dwayne Johnson (49) and Emily Blunt (38) get along as well in everyday life as seen in Jungle Cruise, the action comedy that premieres on Thursday the 29th in theaters and on Friday the 30th on Disney + (plus additional cost).

The film adapts the popular attraction that is in Adventureland, in the Disney theme parks. Inaugurated on July 17, 1955 (it has just been reorganized), it consists of a ride in a small boat and lasts 8 minutes.

Well, the film is something else, another story and it has other dimensions.

Blunt, born in London, seen in The Devil Wears Prada, The return of Mary Poppins and in the current A place in silence Part II, was the girlfriend of Michael Bublé, today, husband of Luisana Lopilato, from 2005 to 2008. For Emily, Bublé wrote the hit Everything. Well, in the fiction of Jungle Cruise Emily is the doctor Lily Houghton, who leaves with her brother to the Amazon, at the beginning of the last century. You want to find a mythical tree with healing properties, which would imply a breakthrough in medicine.

Dwayne Douglas Johnson, known as The Rock, with a Canadian father and black, with a Samoan mother, was an American football player and later specialized in wrestling. In 2001 he took a break to participate as the Scorpion king in The mummy returns, and since then it has received millions (US $ 20 million per Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw, and for the first Jumanji). He is also a producer of Jungle Cruise, where he plays Frank, a tour guide on whose boat he will take Lily, where they will face supernatural forces.

-Hi both, how are you? What do you know about Argentina?

Emily Blunt: -Do you know what I want to learn one day? The Argentine tango. I am desperate to learn that dance. It’s the sexiest dance I’ve ever seen. And if I learn, I’ll show you later. Now, I wouldn’t know how to tango if my life depended on it.

Dwayne Johnson: -I should have let you do it.

-What is your favorite attraction at Disney theme parks?

Dwayne: “Here we go then!” At Disney, yeah yeah …

Emily:Tea cups.

Dwayne: -Yes, Tea cups… I would say, well, it sounds remany, but it was always Jungle Cruise. And I love it Space Mountain.

Emily: -Yes, I like them The haunted mansion, Tower of terrorPirates of the Caribbean.

Dwayne:Pirates of the Caribbean, That was going to say. It’s a great ride. It was always fun, you know, to see that final band of Pirates of the Caribbean, and when you see the character of Johnny Depp, almost at the end …

Emily: -Yes Yes. It’s great.

-The movie is not exactly in the action / adventure genre, and without spoiling, it has a lot of twists and turns. How is it different in itself from the action genre?

Emily: -Well, I think our goal was to bring audiences to this nostalgic and exciting action adventure film. You know, in the spirit of Indiana Jones and in the spirit of After the lost emerald. But at the same time I think we want to bring you into this era that we are in now. And so this tends to contour, it is an adventure film, very multi-layered action. You want something light, you want humor, but you have to have something deeper, which has to be rooted in the human. And yet, you want how to kidnap the viewers and take them to some exotic place. So we were very careful to give a story of love, and blood, and sweat and tears to make sure that every layer was there, present. And then we hit you with all this experience.

Dwayne: -Yes, we are also very aware that we were making a movie that was like a real adventure. In today’s cinema, and we both make entertainment movies, you really needed a nostalgic adventure movie that had a DNA of a Raiders of the lost ark. And as she was saying, of After the lost emerald.

Emily: -What question.

Dwayne: -Emily.

Emily: -He drives the boat …

Dwayne: -Emily (laughs).

Emily: -He’s more Indiana Jones.

Dwayne: -But by the way, again, that’s the cool part. One of the cool things about the elements in our film is that you take what is typical in the movies and you flip it, you turn it. And when you think, oh, it’s inspired by Indiana Jones, maybe that means I’m the character from Indiana Jones, when actually she’s Indiana. Jones’ character in the movie is seen through her eyes and meets my character, who has a unique skill set, who knows the Amazon better than anyone, who might also help her unlock the keys to these legends and these curses as we see them. So we both bring courage to each other in this, as she said, roaring adventure.

-Emily, what does it mean to play a brave and tough woman at the moment in which the film is taking place, so ahead of her time?

Dwayne: -It’s a real stretch for her …

Emily: – (laughs) It was exciting, she had a great character. He noticed it when he jumped from page to page when reading the script. She was funny and reckless and she had this bluntness to her, and a bluntness that was like… (looks at Dwayne) Really? Are you preparing a joke for me?

Dwayne: -No, no, no … (laughs)

Emily: -Because I have to let him know… OK. Stay still. But I love that it was ahead of its time. I think it is important for every girl, to dream big. And that’s why I want that character to be like that, that girls can look up, and think that it is good to be rebellious sometimes.

-What was it like to act with a moving capture of a jaguar?

Dwayne: -It was fun. That’s one of the challenges, I think, of a movie like this. I preferred to work with a real jaguar. He had told our director (the Spaniard Jaume Collet-Serra, the same from The orphan And who Dwayne just filmed with Black Adam, spin-off de Shazam!) … Sorry, why are you both laughing so much?

Emily: -You wouldn’t last … 10 seconds.

Dwayne: -I preferred it, and Emily wasn’t there, but we actually had a real jaguar on set. And, you know …

Emily: -It is not true. We had a very nice man named Ben, and he was dressed in a suit, to do the motion captures. And he had very pretty eyes. And he was so handsome …

Is the sequel coming?

-Do you think “Jungle Cruise” can be a franchise? Are there plans?

Emily: -A sequel? Yes, we really hope so. Conversations are increasing, Disney has been very supportive of the film. We would love. It would be great for me to see the next chapter for everyone.

Dwayne: -Of course, it all depends on the audience, and viewers dictate if something becomes a franchise or if you are lucky enough to get a sequel. But in this case with Jungle CruiseWhat has been good is that people have been starting to see the film, journalists like you, and viewers in general, as we are testing the film around the world. And thankfully, everyone really, really likes the movie. They love the movie, they love the movie, they love me in the movie.

Emily: -I knew you were preparing something …

-Are you going to work together again on “Ball and Chain”, based on “Le Boulet”, the 2002 French film?

Emily: -We do not know.

Dwayne:Ball and Chain. Possibly.

Emily: –Everything is a possibility.

Dwayne: -However, we have other things. We are also cooking other matters, including Jungle Cruise

The US economy returned to the pre-pandemic level

The US economy returned to the pre-pandemic level


Despite this recovery, growth between April and June was below expectations. The increase in GDP was 6.5% in annual projection, that is, the growth that the economy would have in twelve months if the conditions of the previous quarter were maintained.

The rate is higher than the 6.3% per year projected in the previous quarter, but much lower than the 8.5% expected by analysts.

“The United States is back on track, and the new GDP figures are bringing our economy back to pre-pandemic levels,” President Joe Biden said on Twitter. “Make no mistake: this growth is not accidental. It is the direct result of our efforts to provide financial assistance to families, small businesses and communities across the country, ”he added.


The reopening of the economy thanks to vaccination and the billions of dollars distributed to families since the beginning of the year stimulated consumption.

Meanwhile, prices continued to rise to 6.4% year-on-year in the second quarter, according to the PCE index, against 3.8% measured in the previous quarter.

If volatile food and energy prices are excluded, core inflation is at its highest level since 1975, at 6.1%.


Uruguay will apply a third dose of Pfizer to those already immunized with the Coronavac vaccine

Uruguay will apply a third dose of Pfizer to those already immunized with the Coronavac vaccine


Uruguay approved this Wednesday the application of a third dose of the American Pfizer vaccine to those who already have two doses of the Coronavac vaccine, developed by the Chinese laboratory Sinovac.

This was announced by the Uruguayan Public Health Ministry (MSP) in a statement and said that the decision -which had been under study for several weeks- was taken after the recommendation of the National Vaccine Advisory Commission and the group created “ad hoc “.


This third dose will be administered “in a staggered way“and the inoculates must have had a minimum period of 90 days between the second dose of Coronavac and the new one from Pfizer.

“Due to the verification of the lower immune response in this population to the primary vaccination schedule, after one month of the second dose, those who have been administered the Pfizer or AstraZeneca vaccine will be able to receive a third Pfizer dose, while those who have received the complete vaccination schedule with CoronaVac, will be able to receive the complete vaccination schedule with Pfizer (two doses) “, reported from the Ministry.

Although the health portfolio affirmed that the interested parties themselves will have to schedule themselves to request their vaccination day and time, it is not yet confirmed when this term will begin.


According to the CoronavirusUy application, developed by the MSP, at noon this Wednesday, 372,950 people were inoculated with only the first dose, while 2,179,510 (61.52% of the population) have two doses from the Chinese pharmaceutical companies Sinovac, the Anglo-Swedish AstraZeneca or the American Pfizer.

Of this total, the largest number of people have Coronavac and, so far, there are 1,558,770 people who have received the two doses of the vaccine developed by the Asian giant.

Uruguay takes several weeks with a decrease in positives and deaths by covid-19, despite the fact that April, May and June were the worst months of the pandemic.

Currently there are 380,793 cases of covid-19 since the beginning of the health emergency, which was declared in Uruguay on March 13, 2020, of which 2,404 are people who are suffering from the disease, 77 of these admitted to intensive treatment centers (CTI) and 5,941 deceased.

How is Viejos, with Gael García Bernal: Other than the beautiful island

How is Viejos, with Gael García Bernal: Other than the beautiful island


With M. Night Shyamalan I have mixed feelings. I love them and I defend Sixth Sense, The protégé, Fragmented Y The guestsI don’t understand how he did The end of the ages Y After Earth.

When i read that Old he had produced it himself, I was deluded. I remember that The guestss, with a very low budget (5 million dollars!), he made it after blockbusters and in which he only bet on the ingenuity of the plot, without a super cast or disproportionate costs, it was almost round.

I wouldn’t say that I rubbed my hands, but I set out to see Old, yes, with desire.

Good.

I do not understand why the poster already reveals something important in the plot, so when you enter the cinema there will no longer be such a surprise. Nor that the graphic novel on which it is based was super popular.

Like any Shyamalan movie, it has a way of hooking us and towards the end there is like a lady’s gambit. There he explains what seemed inexplicable. Or almost.

The plot

Gael Garcia Bernal is he father of the family arriving at an island resort that his wife (Vicky Krieps, from The phantom thread) hired online. They are with their two children, young Trent (Nolan River), 6 years old, and Maddox (Alexa Swinton), 11. The couple is not having a good time, the breakup is more than an exit, although they get along, It shows that there was love and the holiday weekend will serve, without the children knowing it, as a farewell.

The hotel manager has a surprise in store for you. There is a beach, a bit far from the resort, on the other side of the island, which is like a paradise, he tells them. He also tells them that he only invites them to spend the day there, because they fell in love with him, and that a driver will take them there. The one in charge is M. Night Shyamalan, who always reserves a cameo or something else in the films he directs. He does not do it to save a cachet.

No.

But, and there is always a but, another family (a couple, a little girl and the grandmother) joins the family in the minibus. With some excuse, the driver does not accompany them to the beach itself, where they arrive, laden with food, crossing a sort of rock cave. Arriving at the beach, spectacular, there is another man. And then another couple will join.

And, little by little, things will start to get out of hand.

I am not going to reveal here what happens on the beach of the pretty island.

Except that some unfortunate events occur, which question all logically, physically and anatomically speaking, and that, apparently, none of them can leave the beach.

Shyamalan only spent money on the visual effects, since the hotel where he shot in the Dominican Republic exists, and the beach, too.

There are movies in which some elements may be silly to some viewers. Some of Shyamalan have them – none of the four I mentioned at the beginning – and Old try to balance, balancing explanatory phrases with achieved effects.

Anyway, Old Men will continue to separate those who love and hate the director. And others will gladly leave us little, but always trusting that a better one will come. And every so often, he gets one.

“Old”

“Danger of contagion”: why in Mexico having HIV or coronavirus can lead to jail

“Danger of contagion”: why in Mexico having HIV or coronavirus can lead to jail


In June, while Mexico City flagged in the colors of the rainbow to celebrate sexual diversity and inclusion, a man was imprisoned for “danger of contagion”, crime adapted to the AIDS pandemic and that recovered strength with that of covid-19.

The image of Juan “N”, as identified by the Mexican capital’s prosecutor’s office, was released in a photo and video. His crime: not having informed a former partner that he was a carrier of HIV.


The criminal type is called “danger of contagion” and can carry up to five years in prison to whom, knowing that he has a venereal or serious disease, infects more people “by sexual intercourse” or “other means”.

“What the crime does is criminalize people who live with any health condition, be it HIV or any other,” explains Geraldina González de la Vega, president of the Council to Prevent and Eliminate Discrimination (Copred) of the government of the City of Mexico.

The complaints, the only means to prosecute the crime, escalated in the midst of the covid-19 pandemic.


In 2020, the capital’s prosecutor’s office opened 78 investigations for “danger of contagion” and there are already 52 this year, according to official data that do not specify what disease caused the complaints.

But compared to the nine complaints in 2018 and the 12 in 2019, the impact of the coronavirus is evident.

Although there are no reports of new incarcerations, the head of the Copred considers it “stigmatizing” to investigate a covid-19 patient.

With 2.7 million confirmed cases and 239,079 deaths, Mexico is the fourth country hardest hit by the pandemic in absolute numbers.

Old moralisms and a new pandemic

The “danger of contagion”, present for decades in the federal penal code, responds to old Catholic moralisms such as punishing “licentious” behavior, according to academic studies.

In the 1990s, the advance of AIDS led to the toughening of the norm in the nascent penal code of the then Federal District.

“The crime of injuries can penalize a person who fraudulently goes and infects another. And if he intends to do so and does not succeed, we have attempted injuries”, remarks González de la Vega.

Discrimination?

The figure thus contradicts the constitutional principles of human dignity and non-discrimination by health condition.

In the case of Juan “N”, the prosecution irreversibly exposed him by spreading the accusation, his face and personal data.

“It’s illegal,” says Jaime Morales, director of sexual diversity for the capital government, who today works to train and sensitize the personnel who disclosed the information.

Juan’s confinement, which lasted a week, was due to the complaint of his ex-partner, whose lawyers allege that she was deceived and put at risk. The prosecution argues that he was arrested for failing to respond to subpoenas.

The judge finally determined that he could continue the trial at liberty. The AFP agency contacted the accused and his defender, but they abstained from making a statement so as not to affect the process.

More protection against HIV

The criminal type is also anachronistic from a medical perspective.

For two decades, antiretroviral drugs have reduced HIV until it is undetectable and therefore non-communicable. There are also preventive methods that protect up to 99% from possible sexual infections.

“A person who is totally in control (treatment) does not transmit the virus to their partners,” says Sergio Montalvo, a doctor at the Condesa public clinic, specializing in HIV-AIDS.

The treatment is also free in any public health service in Mexico.

Montalvo stresses that HIV-positive people have the power to share or not their diagnosis.

Proposals for changes to the law

Although Juan’s case marks a painful milestone, it also opens the door for the repeal of the crime.

Temístocles Villanueva, a deputy for the ruling Morena party in the capital’s Congress, will present an initiative in August.

“It is an intervention of the State on the private life of the people, on their sexual relations”, underlines Villanueva, for whom criminalization does not reduce contagion.

“What it does cause is that people hide their state of health so as not to risk being accused,” he adds.

During 2020, 342 new cases of HIV were diagnosed in Mexico City and 9,220 throughout the country, according to official figures.
