Video: Dwayne Johnson Imagines Himself In Sequels To Hit Movies
The Movie God   |  

Dwayne Johnson As Napoleon Dynamite

One actor who does not have trouble finding work these days is Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. At this very moment, he has 13 different projects in various stages of current status ranging from announced to pre-production to filming to post-production, and finally, completed (his latest movie, Baywatch). With this many projects, it’s safe to assume he’s showered with offers, and a large amount of those offers are not for the most appealing roles.

GQ Magazine, who has Johnson on the cover of their 2017 Comedy Issue, has released a video in which Johnson imagines himself playing some odd roles in sequels to hit movies such as Goodfellas, Home Alone, Napoleon Dynamite, and even a remake of The Revenant.

‘Baywatch’ Red Band Trailer Asks “Who’s Your Daddy Now”

Raunchy summer comedies are becoming more commonplace to give some balance to a season normally chock full of action tentpoles. And with more studios trying to use the same formula that gave way to the success of the Jump Street franchise, you can be sure to see a lot more raunchy takes on TV classics. So Paramount hopes that you’ll come to theaters to watch Baywatch, starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, and Priyanka Chopra.

While previous trailers have skimmed the surface of this R-rated flick, this new red band trailer will make sure you know that this is an R-rated action comedy. It’s definitely NSFW, so it’s probably best to put on some headphones or wait until the coast is clear. Check out the trailer below.

Movie Review: The Fate Of The Furious
eelyajekiM   |  

The Fate of the Furious starring Vin Diesel

The Fate Of The Furious
Director: F. Gary Gray
Screenwriter: Chris Morgan
Cast: Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Kurt Russell, Scott Eastwood, Charlize Theron, Helen Mirren
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 136 Minutes
Release Date: April 14, 2017

With each new installment of the Fast and Furious franchise comes a new definition of fun. That is especially true for The Fate of the Furious. For nearly a decade Dom and his family have gone through the perils of street racing, heists, and avenging a fallen family member. And though it has reinvented itself to stay fresh and contemporary, one thing about the franchise remains true: it’s all about family. But the strength of that bond will be put to the test when an act of betrayal forces Dom to cross everyone he knows and go on a high-stakes crime spree that could put the world in the hands of a dangerous cyber terrorist.

Of course, another constant for the film is the fact that it continually jumps the shark whenever the opportunity presents itself. And seeing how car technology has advanced, The Fate of the Furious shifts jumping the shark into high gear. Check out the full review below.

Dwayne Johnson’s ‘Jungle Cruise’ Finally Heads Off To Production

Dwayne Johnson will star in Jungle Cruise

Sure Disneyland has a wealth of rides inspired by characters and films, but they also have some original ones as well. With the success of the Pirates of the Caribbean films, it was only a matter of time before another ride got the big-screen adaptation treatment. Jungle Cruise is another one of those rides. The film was originally a Tim Allen and Tom Hanks-starring vehicle, but now has turned into something with an action slant now that Dwayne Johnson is the leading star. But with his workload, it was hard to imagine Jungle Cruise would ever happen. Now there is confirmation that the film will start production in 2018. More on the story below.

Baywatch

Paramount Pictures has released the second trailer for Baywatch, from Horrible Bosses director Seth Gordon. The film is based on the hit 90s show that centered on a group of lifeguards who saved lives on the titular beach. Of course, the show was probably best known for their slow-motion runs than anything else. But still, with the success of the Jump Street film franchise, studios are looking at what shows they can revitalize and turn into films.

Check out the full trailer for Baywatch here below.

‘The Fate Of The Furious’ Trailer: It’s Dwayne Johnson vs A Torpedo

Dwayne Johnson in The Fate of the Furious

It’s hard to believe that we’ve only gotten two trailers for The Fate of the Furious so far. Universal has just released the second one today (watch the first here), and if you thought you’ve seen everything in this franchise, well, the new trailer shatters that notion with a torpedo and a few missiles.

Yes, now the family will have to contend with military weaponry. Tanks were one thing, but a submarine is something that they will have to survive if they want to rescue Dom (Vin Diesel). Check out the newest trailer below.

Blu-ray Review: Moana
eelyajekiM   |  

Moana

Moana
Blu-ray l DVD l Collector’s Edition
Director: Ron Clements and John Musker
Screenwriter: Jared Bush
Cast: Auli’i Cravalho, Dwayne Johnson, Alan Tudyk, Temuera Morrison, Nicole Scherzinger, Rachel House, Jemaine Clement
Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG | 113 minutes
Release Date: March 7, 2017

Last year, Disney released two Oscar-nominated animated films: Zootopia and Moana. Choosing a favorite between the two was no easy decision. Both had gorgeous animation and both and beautiful stories to tell. The former had themes of inclusion and welcoming diversity, while the latter focused on a spirited young girl who strived for independence but also wanted to pay respect to her family’s history and culture. In the end, Zootopia came out the winner, but you can make an argument for Moana being the better film.

Now you’ll be able to make a comparison with Moana hitting Blu-ray shelves this week. The film, of course, comes chalk full of bonus feature goodies which include deleted scenes, an animated short, and the Polynesian culture that helped inspire the film in more ways than one. Check out the full review below.
