When you think “movies” and “Super Bowl commercials,” in recent years that meant one thing: The Fast and the Furious. The sixth film had a huge Super Bowl spot in 2013 and in 2015, the gang is back.
The Furious 7 Super Bowl commercial is now online. And it’s EPIC. Directed by James Wan, the film stars Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Elsa Pataky, Lucase Black and Jason Statham. It opens April 3. Read More »

They say you always hurt the one you love, and movie studios love to destroy the town in which they reside. San Andreas is the latest film in which a studio throws huge money at an opportunity to demolish Los Angeles. Did that one restaurant’s valet scratch your Bentley? Reduce it to (virtual) rubble! Did that Starbucks mess up your latte again? Drop it into a chasm! Here, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a search and rescue pilot who has to put in overtime when the Big One finally rocks California to its foundations. The film looks like disaster porn in the grand old mode; check out the San Andreas trailer below. Read More »

Californians have been waiting decades for the Big One, the massive earthquake expected to rock the San Andreas fault at a magnitude of 7.0 or greater on the Richter scale. As of now, there’s no telling when the event might hit — at least in real life. In the movies, we already know there’s a catastrophe due to land next summer.
Dwayne Johnson leads Brad Peyton‘s San Andreas as Ray, a helicopter rescue pilot who’s in the air when the Big One arrives. He tries to track down his daughter Blake (Alexandra Daddario) along with his ex-wife Emma (Carla Gugino), as destruction rains down around them. See the new San Andreas images after the jump.

These days, there’s frankly not much Dwayne Johnson isn’t doing. Revitalizing franchises like Fast and Furious, Journey or G.I. Joe? Check. Headlining a big summer action movie? Check. Spy movie? Check. Big buddy action comedy? Check. Tongue in cheek remake? Check. Hell, Johnson is even going to be a super villain pretty soon. Really the only thing Johnson hasn’t done is a big Disney movie and, well, that’s next.
Johnson is in talks to provide a voice in Moana, one of Disney Animation’s big 2016 releases set in the South Pacific which “follows the title navigator as she sets sail in search of a fabled island.” Read more about the Dwayne Johnson Moana casting below. Read More »

In a story that’s worthy of April 1st, Dwayne Johnson is “loosely attached” to Paramount’s long-gestating big-screen take on Baywatch. The adaptation of the hit TV show has been in development for years and is now once again picking up steam with a new writer and director team. Comedy writer Justin Malen is rewriting the script (which was most recently penned by Reno 911 co-creator Robert Ben Garant) for Sean Anders and John Morris, the team behind We’re the Millers and Horrible Bosses 2, who are directing.
UPDATE: The Rock has confirmed his involvement.
