Jungle Cruise tells the story of steamboat captain Frank Wolff (Dwayne Johnson), who becomes the reluctant river guide to Dr. Lily Houghton (Emily Blunt) and her younger brother McGregor (Jack Whitehall) on their quest to find the legendary “Tree of Life.” Houghton’s ultimate hope is to harness the healing powers of the Tree to usher in a medical revolution that will benefit all of mankind.

But the trio is not alone on the Amazon: Also searching for the Tree is Aguirre (Edgar Ramirez), a cunning mercenary who has been hired to guide a rival expedition, and Prince Joachim (Jesse Plemons), who is leading an Imperial German military expedition to find the Tree and claim it as his own. And even greater dangers, both natural and supernatural, await the adventurers as well.

If you want to watch Jungle Cruise (and you’re not planning to head out to theaters soon), then you can sign up for Disney+ and grab the movie with Disney Premier Access. Disney+ costs $8 per month or $80 per year, and you can order Jungle Cruise on Disney Premier Access for $30. This lets you stream the film as many times as you like until it is added to the Disney+ library on November 12.

Your Disney+ subscription also gets you access to the entire library of Disney, Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars productions, among other content. If you want a bigger streaming package, then you should also definitely consider upgrading to the Disney Bundle. For $14 per month, you get Disney+, ESPN+, and basic ad-supported Hulu.

Watch the free Brazilian GP live stream
The Brazilian Grand Prix is being aired for free in Austria and Luxembourg. This is great news for those in the countries, but devastating for residents traveling abroad who want to watch the action unfold live in their local language -- especially when it's free-to-watch at home. It's only natural that an Austrian currently in the United States would want to watch the race in Austrian and not English, right? This is completely safe and legal to do with a VPN like NordVPN. Just install it, choose to the location you wish to connect to, then fire up broadcast. The free streams are ORF in Austria or RTL Zwee in Luxembourg.

Unfortunately, there isn't a free Brazilian GP live stream for residents of other countries. Elsewhere, folks will need to tune in through a local broadcast partner. The race is available on ESPN in the United States, and the best way to tune in is through fuboTV, which offers a one-week free trial to new customers In the United Kingdom, it's available on Sky Sports F1, and over in Canada it's being broadcast in English through TNS and in French through RDS. There are some other options available as well -- below we'll talk you through the different ways you can tune in locally in the United States in more detail.
