Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s charismatic charm and insane physique are part of what’s made it so easy for him to cross over from the land of wrestling into the world of big-budget superhero franchises. In this weekend’s SNL “Scorpio” sketch, though, he reveals the one thing you really need to be a hero: the ability to…
Dwayne Johnson hosted his fifth episode of Saturday Night Live over the weekend, helming this year’s season finale with a mix of the weird, the political, and the OMIGOD hide your children and your wives from this guy.
For two years, Disney has had a deal in place with Dwayne Johnson to make a movie based on its iconic theme park ride, Jungle Cruise. Just when it was starting to seem like it would never happen, he’s now officially signed on—and production will begin in 2018.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (the actual new title) won’t open until Christmas, but exhibitors got a first look at footage from the film at CinemaCon 2017. It revealed the not-so-secret premise, a connection to Robin Williams and, frankly, a lot of fun, family-friendly action.
It makes sense that the guy who wrestled as the People’s Champion—with the backstory of butting heads with powers-that-be—would look at DC Comics continuity and come away with this reading of the character.
DC’s proposed Shazam movie doesn’t have a director, star, or even a finished script. What it does have is a villain, Black Adam, played by Dwayne Johnson, and that means he’s getting his own movie.
Every once in a while, Dwayne Johnson takes a break from his eleventy-hundred different projects to remind us that, ostensibly, at some point, there will be a Shazam movie. But every time he does, the future Black Adam makes me wonder a little more if he realizes he’s chosen to play the villain of the movie.
Normally when reviewing a movie, you come up with a healthy mix of positive and negative things to say about it. In the case of Disney’s Moana, though, I’m really struggling to come up with the latter. It’s just that wonderful.
Today, as in most days, we wish we were the Rock. I don’t know why exactly, but this image speaks to me. At the very least I feel better for having seen it.
As Jumanji has started to wrap up production, Dwayne Johnson’s continued to bless us with his Instagram. While we’re still on the fence about the movie itself, Johnson’s on-set pranks against co-star Kevin Hart are a sight to behold. He always looks like he’s having way more fun than anyone else.
After Karen Gillan’s skimpy jungle wear showed up in the Jumanji set photo last week, there were constant promises that it would make sense once you saw the film. These new plot rumors actually do explain the outfit, but there’s only one way they might manage to justify it.
After the first real image from Jumanji was released yesterday, we were understandably a bit confused by the various outfits on display. And, in the case of Karen Gillan’s half an outfit, a little bit nervous. Today, Gillan herself gives a clue as to why her character’s clothes are so small.
Kevin Hart put the first photo of most of the cast (admittedly, a Jonas brother is missing) up on Instagram. And, well, he, Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, and Jack Black all look exactly like the the most basic caricature of “jungle explorers” you could imagine.
Of course, Moana’s actual meeting with the demigod Maui is a bit more frustrating than it normally is in most mythic adventures. But holy crap, Auli’i Cravalho and Dwayne Johnson have such good chemistry as these characters.
G.I. Joe 3 is apparently stuck in production hell because Dwayne Johnson doesn’t have enough time to film it. But the bigger question is: Do any of us even care about a third G.I. Joe movie?
An adventurous young girl sets out with a demi-god to solve the mystery of her people in Moana, the upcoming film from Disney Animation. It sounds like a simple story, but as directors Ron Clements and John Musker can tell you, putting it on-screen is anything but simple.
We’ve been a bit cautious for the past several months about the new Jumanji flick. After all, the original is well beloved (at least for 90s kids), and it seems weird to remake the semi-serious kids movie as an outright buddy comedy. Well, Jumanji star Dwayne Johnson is putting our fears to rest (kind of).
The best things come to those who wait—especially those who wait in line. Giving up their precious time to stand in a line for hours (or days) to do or see something cool has always been a badge of honor for fans. I have many such badges, because I’ve waited in a lot of lines for a lot of things. And I have very few…
These days, you can’t go three clicks on the internet without finding cat pictures, pornography, or a new project for Dwayne Johnson. Now, a new one has been added to the overflowing mountain of movies. It’s called Son of Shaolin, based on a yet-to-be-published graphic novel.
Dwayne Johnson took to Instagram to announce he has officially joined Shane Black’s tale of “the world’s first superhero,” Doc Savage. The post, which you can read below, notes the actor’s excitement at playing “A F*CKING HILARIOUS WEIRDO!” Stoked for you, guy. But we have to ask: when does the Rock sleep?
