Who in their right mind would upset The Rock? On Monday, Dwayne Johnson took to Instagram to call out several unnamed male Fast 8 co-stars in a shocking post.
After praising his “always amazing” female co-stars, who include original franchise stars Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster and newcomers Charlize Theron, Helen Mirren, and Eva Mendes, The Rock had plenty to say about certain male co-stars from the upcoming action flick.
“My male co-stars however are a different story. Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don’t,” the former professional wrestler wrote. “The ones that don’t are too chicken s**t to do anything about it anyway. Candy a**es.” Continue reading
Central Intelligence, the other big release of the weekend, snagged a $13.005 million Friday, including $1.835m in Thursday previews. The Dwayne Johnson/Kevin Hart action comedy is a Warner Bros./Time Warner TWX -1.43% Inc. release in the states, although Universal/Comcast CMCSA -1.16% Corp. is distributing the $50m New Line Cinemas production overseas. The picture is banking on old-school star power, with two of the few “face in the trailer” movie stars around teaming up for what could be a new franchise.
The film stars Hart as a “peaked in high school” accountant who discovers that the class outcast has grown up into, well, someone who looks like The Rock and works for the CIA. It earned somewhat decent reviews. Heck, I might even argue that Warner Bros. erred by not letting the embargo drop sooner. The “wait until the last minute” embargo had us all thinking the worst.

Fans are thrilled over the news that one of the world’s biggest action stars, Dwayne Johnson, will be taking on the role of the world’s first superhero, Doc Savage. The actor made the announcement via Instagram, expressing his excitement by saying: “But here’s the No. 1 reason I’m excited to become Doc Savage. HE’S A F*CKING HILARIOUS WEIRDO!” He added: “Can’t wait to sink my teeth into this one-of-a-kind character.”
Few people realize that Superman was largely based on Doc Savage, who was trained from infancy to be the perfect human specimen. In many ways his father and the team of scientists who developed his physical and mental abilities succeeded. With his genius level IQ, the character became a brilliant scientist. He had heightened senses and amazing strength, but he lacked Superman’s charm. One of the most endearing things about Savage was his lack of social graces. He had a tendency to be shockingly direct, not unlike a version of The Big Bang Theory’s Sheldon Cooper, with super powers.
Before he even set foot on a film set, Dwayne Johnson was creating great characters in the wrestling ring, perhaps none better than the eyebrow-raising, People’s Elbowing “The Rock.” He was so naturally likable that the cocky villain quickly turned into a beloved antihero. Everybody smelled what The Rock was cooking.
Johnson carried that never-ending charisma to the big screen and it’s in full gear in his new Central Intelligence (in theaters Friday). Amid an anti-bullying message and “Be the hero of your own story” theme, the buff actor plays a former chubby kid turned rogue CIA agent who disrupts the life of a former classmate (Kevin Hart) on the eve of their 20-year high school reunion.
How does he rate in the definitive ranking of best and worst Johnson movie roles? Let’s break it down. (No uncredited cameos, straight-to-video releases or animated parts are counted. But we still love you, Planet 51.)
21. Sarge (Doom, 2005)
An action-packed video-game adaptation may have seemed like a good idea at the time. We’re giving The Rock a mulligan for this one.
20. Derek Thompson (Tooth Fairy, 2010)
Goonish hockey enforcer doesn’t believe in the tooth fairy, gets wings as his punishment and receives a stern talking-to from Julie Andrews.
19. Hank (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, 2012)
The mission: To break some codes and save an old man on a wondrous island. What actually ensues along the way: battles with killer eels, campfire songs and Johnson bouncing berries off his flexing pectorals.
18. Mathayus (The Scorpion King, 2002)
On their first day shooting “Central Intelligence,” their new spy-themed action comedy, Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart were given an extremely difficult scene.
Difficult, meaning it was impossible not to break up laughing and ruin the shot. They were playing doctor and patient in a therapist’s office, and they were staring at each other, real close, trying not to blink or speak. For Hart especially, this was very hard to do.
“Kevin could just not keep a straight face,” says director Rawson Marshall Thurber. “We had 12 minutes of him laughing, and I was like, ‘Oh man, I don’t know if we’re ever going to finish anything!’ Kevin is an assassin; he WILL make you laugh. Dwayne was a good sport, he held it together, but there’s only so much a dam can hold before it breaks.” Continue reading
Predator 4’s filming will begin during autumn this year in Vancouver, Canada, writer-director Shane Black has said.
