These days, the Jungle Cruise ride in Disney theme parks is unlike any other ride there. That’s because it isn’t just about the ride itself, it’s about a full experience where “tour guides” joke about the ride while on the ride with silly, PG-rated jokes. It’s so unfunny, it actually becomes funny, and the new movie…
Audiences don’t go see a movie like Rampage for things like “logic.” They go to see big monsters destroy things, and Rampage certainly delivers on that promise. However, speaking about logic, or lack thereof, in a movie like Rampage can often times be just as fun as the mindless spectacle. So let’s have some fun.
When Rampage the movie finally becomes Rampage, the video game it was based on, it really works. Seeing giant mutated animals destroy tall buildings is so ludicrous and stupid it’s hard not to watch it with a smile on your face. It also fits with the rest of the movie, which is equally ludicrous and stupid... and…
When Oscar season rolls around again, it’s doubtful that The Rock’s summer blockbuster Rampage is going to be a contender for best screenplay. And that’s a tragedy because watching a popular ‘80s video game character destroy a modern Dave & Buster’s arcade is some beautiful, heavy-handed poetry.
Video game movie adaptations have had a rocky history—whether or not they adhere to the fiction of the games their inspired by, or do something totally different and just slap the source material’s name on it. But apparently, Rampage director Brad Peyton refused to even sign on if the movie even considered going with…
Warner Bros.’ Rampage, like the video game it’s based on, is about three genetically-modified animals that...go on a rampage and destroy a bunch of stuff. In other words, the story it’s telling isn’t exactly going to be plot driven.
There’s no doubt Dwayne Johnson is physically capable of performing almost any stunt Hollywood asks of him, but when it comes to bashing in the chest of another performer on a motorcycle with a giant log, that’s when his digital stunt double steps in to safely take a swing.
Giant gorillas, mutated alligators, and Dwayne Johnson’s ridiculous collection of guns. Must be a new trailer for Rampage.
Welcome back to the jungle. In an announcement that should surprise no one—considering the fact that Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is closing in on a billion dollars at the box office—there’s a sequel in the works to the comedy reboot starring Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan.
Worried that skyscraper-tall albino gorillas and cruise ship-sized crocodiles wouldn’t be enough of a box office draw, the second trailer for Rampage reveals that Dwayne Johnson will also be battling rage-filled wolves who’ve mutated into some kind of giant flying squirrel.
The formula of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle sounds like it can’t miss. Put some big personalities in a gorgeous setting and have them tell funny jokes and perform a lot of action. When those big personalities are played by stars like Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, and Jack Black, the odds of success are even higher. …
The first trailer for Dwayne Johnson’s non-Jumanji video game venture Rampage is basically what you’d get if Rise of the Planet of the Apes replaced a serum for intelligence with one that makes giant gorillas, and huge wolves run amok for seemingly no reason.
The original Jumanji was pretty straightforward—a boy gets trapped in a jungle board game for 30 years, he and the other players finish the game, and he’s sent back in time once they’re done. But apparently, there’s a whole lot more to this simple tale to be explored in Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle, and we’re trying…
When you’re the biggest star in the world, you can do anything you want. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson wants to do many, many things, one of which is produce a time-travel TV series for YouTube Red called Lifeline and here’s the first trailer.
Director Rick Famuyiwa almost made DC’s Flash movie—but now that he’s no longer part of that project, he’s moving on to a different comic book movie.
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.
