The website WrestlingInc has an article up about a new movie starring The Rock titled ‘Outrage Over His Pay Vs. Emily Blunt’s Pay’. The movie is a girlie-man Disney movie called Jungle Cruise.
Set in the 1930s during the Great Depression, a riverboat captain named Frank takes a scientist and her brother on a mission into a jungle to find a tree believed to possess healing powers. All the while, the trio must fight against dangerous wild animals, and a competing German expedition.
The Rock plays the captain, Blunt plays the scientist (but of course, yet another Hollywood feminist trope). However The Rock is being paid $22 million, whereas Blunt is being paid $9 million. Gee, I wonder why The Rock is getting paid more than Emily Blunt?
