Dwayne Johnson was revealed to be the highest paid actor in Hollywood today, making $64.5 million a year. However, more people are still interested in the feud that was revealed to be taking place between Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel on the set of Fast 8.
For those who don’t know, not long before production wrapped on the sequel, Dwayne Johnson took to Instagram to call some of his male co-stars “candy-asses” who don’t conduct themselves professionally. Not long after, it was revealed that Vin Diesel was the more specific subject of this post because he was delaying shooting just so he could chill out in his trailer. Since then, details about the tension on set having to be regulated by Universal executive vice president Mark Sourian have made this feud quite a fascinating topic of conversation.
However, it turns out that this feud may all just be some kind of promotional stunt leading to an eventual confrontation at WrestleMania 33 next spring, which happens just before Fast 8 hits theaters. Find out more after the jump. Read More »

Over the course of seven (and soon to be eight) movies, the Fast and Furious series has built one of the strangest and most likable ensembles in Hollywood history. Once everyone settled into their roles (and it took some of them a few movies to get there), these movies stopped being all about wacky car action and started being about these characters bouncing off each other, trading barbs and blows, but also stares of deep, brotherly affection and whatnot.
At this point, it’s hard to imagine the series without Dwayne Johnson, whose permanently sweaty Luke Hobbs has become provides the crew with a macho moral compass. That means it’s awfully hard to imagine that the role was originally written for Tommy Lee Jones.

Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart have been confirmed to star in a new take on Jumanji at Sony Pictures for a little while now. Also, the Central Intelligence duo will be joined by Jack Black, as well as Nick Jonas supposedly continuing to broaden his acting career with a role as well. Now as the film moves closer to starting production, a new detail has emerged that changes our perspective of the movie a little bit.
According to a recent social media update by Dwayne Johnson, the new Jumanji isn’t a reboot, and it might be more of a legacy-quel instead. Get the details below. Read More »
While Fast 8 has been in production over the past few months, we’ve been treated to plenty of cool glimpses behind the scenes featuring director F. Gary Gray and the ensemble cast hard at work, not to mention some of the awesome vehicles we’ll see racing around. However, all those updates will soon be far less abundant as production is close to finishing.
This past Friday was the last #FastFriday post from the official Facebook page for the Fast and Furious franchise. Surely that will disappoint some fans, but the good news is they delivered that new photo of the cast up top, and they told us when we can expect to see the first Fast 8 trailer arrive. Unfortunately, it’s going to be a while. Find out when you’ll get your tease of the 2017 sequel after the jump. Read More »

Two of the most beloved men in showbiz, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Hamilton‘s Lin-Manuel Miranda, are teaming up this fall for what will hopefully be Disney Animation’s next smash hit. But before we get to Moana, the pair took a moment to pay homage to an old Disney animated classic. In an incredibly charming video below, you can see the pair doing a duet of “Gaston,” from 1991’s Beauty and the Beast. You can probably guess which one played Gaston.

Since all eyes are on the Olympics, you can expect plenty of new teasers for forthcoming movies to arrive on television so studios an reach the biggest possible audience. There’s a new trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story coming this week, and this weekend also brings a new glimpse of Walt Disney Animations Studios’ latest adventure, Moana.
Just a couple weeks ago, we met almost all of the key characters of Moana voiced by Auli‘i Cravalho, Dwayne Johnson, Jemaine Clement, Rachel House, Temuera Morrison, Alan Tudyk and Nicole Scherzinger. Now we get to meet a character we’ve only seen in concept art, and it’s fiery lava monster, who appears to be some kind of witch that gives our titular character and her new demigod friend Maui some trouble on the sea.

The original Disney princess characters were crafted in a traditional fairy tale mold. They were damsels in distress, beautiful young women who are terrorized by villains for 90 minutes before getting rescued by a bland but resourceful hero. That has started to slowly change over the years, but even tougher-than-usual Disney heroines like Jasmine still needed an Aladdin to rescue them from certain doom.
If recent Disney animated movies have started to bend the princess mold, it certainly sounds like Moana is going to try to shatter it. Directors John Musker and Ron Clements, who previously helmed The Little Mermaid and The Princess and Frog, have revealed that that the titular princess in their movie won’t have a love interest at all.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Dwayne Johnson‘s busy schedule has made room for USA. The actor — who’s already attached to the Jumanji remake, Doc Savage, and Rampage — is producing a new television drama, Muscle Beach. The show is set in the 1980s and takes place at Venice Beach’s famous workout spot. Johnson says the story follows “lost souls” that “struggle to reinvent themselves by bench-pressing their way to a bigger, better American dream, no matter what the cost.” Thematically, it doesn’t sound very different from Pain & Gain.

In June we shared with you the first trailer for Walt Disney Animation’s next film Moana, which mostly focused on Dwayne Johnson‘s character, demigod Maui. A new international trailer hit the web last night, showing a completely different sequence from early in the film.
