The Rock Dungeons and Dragons

Most of the time, press conferences for big blockbuster movies are opportunities for the actors to crack a few jokes, share a fun story or two about making the movie, and that’s about it. It’s rare that anything actually substantial comes out of these Q&A sessions, but the press conference for Rampage, the upcoming film adaptation of the video game, was a little bit different.

During the conference, actor Joe Manganiello (who plays a mercenary in Rampage) revealed that star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was in talks to lead a Dungeons and Dragons movie, and Johnson confirmed it. Read about The Rock Dungeons and Dragons connection, the Rampage movie’s special homage to the video game on which it’s based, and more below.

rampage early buzz

At this point, you know what to expect in a Dwayne Johnson movie. Big explosions, even bigger pecs, and lots of testosterone-fueled male posturing — probably in the jungle, and probably while the Rock is wearing the same khaki shirt he’s dragged across five movie sets.

Johnson has nailed a type, and he’s got an audience willing to pay top dollar to see him to it again. And from the looks of Rampage, it’s very much the same action-packed blockbuster we expect to see from Johnson. But that doesn’t mean it’s not good.

Below, see the Rampage early buzz.

Johnson is currently working on the Fast & Furious spin-off co-starring Jason Statham, but when asked if he might return for Furious 9, Johnson says he’s “not quite sure.”

Rampage release date

It was an earth-shattering event. Last week, Marvel and Disney dropped a surprise announcement, revealing that the release date for Avengers: Infinity War would be bumped up a week. By moving from May 4 to April 27, the superhero tentpole would jumpstart the summer movie season a little early, and dominate any other films that hoped to draw in a few pre-summer crowds.

One of those films is Dwayne Johnson‘s Rampage. The science-fiction action film was set to be released on April 20, 2018, enjoying a few weeks at the top of the box office before Infinity War would swoop in two weeks later. But with Infinity War‘s surprise date change, Rampage and other April movies are scrambling to get out of the way of Earth’s Mightiest box office draws.

Oscars in memoriam

Last night’s 90th Academy Awards was thankfully devoid of any colossal mistakes that rivaled last year’s infamous Moonlight mix-up, but the Academy didn’t wrap up the night completely unscathed. There were a handful of glaring omissions from the “In Memoriam” segment, and we’ll run through a list of names below who should have been honored alongside their fallen peers.

Meanwhile, The Razzies made an “In Memoriam” montage of their own – but instead of featuring people who died, it’s all about men who were accused of sexual misconduct. And speaking of the Razzies, Dwayne Johnson took to social media to graciously accept a trophy on behalf of last year’s high-profile misfire, BaywatchRead More »
