The terrifying true story of one man’s 17-day fight for survival in the Amazon rainforest becomes a gripping cinematic event as JUNGLE arrives in cinemas and on demand from 20th October, 2017, courtesy of Signature Entertainment.
Young Israeli Yossi Ghinsberg leaves a safe future behind to chase an improbable dream in the mysterious depths of the Amazon rainforest. When he and two fellow adventurers, Kevin Gale and Marcus Stamm, meet the charismatic Karl Ruchprecter and follow him into the jungle, what begins as the realization of a dream soon turns into a harrowing psychological fight for survival.
Daniel Radcliffe (Happy Potter, Imperium) gives a mesmerising and transformative performance as Ghinsberg, with the physical and mental ravages the star and his real-life counterpart experienced visible for all to see. Radcliffe is joined by Thomas Kretschmann (The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Central Intelligence) as the magnetic yet sinister Ruchprecter, and Greg McLean (Wolf Creek, Rogue) directs, ratcheting up the tension to nightmarish levels as the jungle starts to take a horrifying hold.
Based on Ghinsberg’s own book, ‘Jungle: A Harrowing True Story Of Survival’, JUNGLE delivers a Radcliffe we’ve never seen before and a thriller like no other, not to mention a stark warning as to what lies in the dark depths of the Amazon for anyone planning to go off the beaten path…
