Not liking Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a crime punishable by sneers and glares. The infinitely charismatic movie star is one of the most watchable men in modern cinema. Even when he boards a stinker (and he’s made his fair share of awful movies), he walks away smelling like roses. He’s unsinkable, a buoyant pile of muscle and enthusiasm powered by lots and lots of cod.
So if there’s anyone who can get us interested in a film version of the Rampage video game series, it’s Johnson, who announced the film’s new screenwriters on his Instagram page. As a bonus, he also revealed the schedule for his next year, which seriously, no joke, sounds like it would kill any other human being.

Universal doesn’t want their Fast & Furious franchise to end anytime soon. Fast & Furious 7 made over $1.5 billion dollars at the box office, and even aside from the money, this series shows no signs of slowing down. Director Justin Lin raised the bar with Fast Five, making these movies more popular than ever before. Understandably, Universal wants to keep the brand going outside of the main franchise, and they may plan on doing that with spinoffs.
A new rumor indicates Monica Fuentes (Eva Mendes) will return for Fast & Furious 8, following her brief post-credits cameo in Fast Five and possibly ahead of her own spinoff film. Learn more about the potential Fast and Furious spinoff after the jump.

Teaming up Kevin Hart with Ice Cube in Ride Along worked for some people, and the movie was enough of a box office hit to warrant a sequel next year. Personally, it just wasn’t what I was looking for as far as quality comedy writing goes. However, as someone who isn’t really a fan of Hart’s comedy, the first trailer for Central Intelligence, teaming him up with Dwayne Johnson, actually looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun. Watch!

Dwayne Johnson may have the physique of an action hero, but underneath all those bulging muscles there’s a comedy star just waiting to break free. Or at least that’s what Dodgeball director Rawson Marshall Thurber is banking on in his new movie. Central Intelligence pairs Johnson with comedy A-lister Kevin Hart — and then has Johnson be the funny one, and Hart act as the straight man. Talk about a plot twist. Check out the first Central Intelligence images after the jump.
