Action/Adventure: A woman hires a WWI era riverboat captain to transport her and her brother up the Amazon in search of a tree with legendary healing properties.

It's 1916 London and Lily Houghton (EMILY BLUNT) wants to get her hands on a museum artifact that she believes will lead her to the Tears of the Moon, a legendary tree long rumored to have supernatural healing powers. But since few women are taken seriously, she has her high society brother, MacGregor (JACK WHITEHALL), make her presentation for her. When that doesn't go well, she decides to steal the ancient arrowhead herself, something German military man Prince Joachim (JESSE PLEMONS) likewise desires, although he intends to use it to win WWI.

With the artifact in hand, Lily and MacGregor travel to the Amazon in search of Nilo (PAUL GIAMATTI) who can provide her a boat to travel upriver, following in the footsteps of 16th-century conquistador Aguirre (EDGAR RAMIREZ) who was in search of the same tree. Instead, Lily meets tourist boat captain Frank Wolff (DWAYNE JOHNSON) who cons his way into convincing her that he's the right man for the job, and brings his pet jaguar Proxima along for the trip.

With Joachim on their tails, Frank, Lily, and MacGregor head up the Amazon, clashing as they do so, unsure if they'll find the tree or are instead just on a wild goose chase.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
