Like most Hollywood productions, the Netflix action heist comedy Red Notice temporarily shut down back in March when the pandemic began to present itself as the global threat we now know it to be. Producer and star Dwayne Johnson announced in a March 14 Instagram post that the film would be pulling the plug for at least two weeks, and included the following phrase in his seemingly inspirational caption: “Our country will do its job, as the rest of the world will do theirs.” Oh, how young and naive we all were then.
But we finally have some much-needed good news: Red Notice, which resumed production under strict safety protocols in early September, has finally finished shooting – and there are some new photos from the movie, too. Check out the photos, which feature Johnson and co-stars Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds in action.

Dwayne Johnson hasn’t appeared in a movie since last year’s Jumanji: The Next Level. That’s through no fault of his own, of course – the pandemic has pushed back a couple of his projects which, ideally, would have been released by now. But that means that we’ve gone many months without seeing a new Rock vehicle, and diehard fans are probably wondering when they’ll be able to see his next project.
Today, Johnson shared a new pitch video for his upcoming NBC series Young Rock, which is based on three different time periods in his own early life. Does the whole video end with an extremely obvious ad for his tequila company? You bet your ass it does. But you’ve already come this far, so what are you going to do – not watch it? Check out the Young Rock pitch video below. Read More »

The movie starring Dwayne Johnson has been in the works for a long time now, but now production is imminent, even if it’s been delayed by the coronaivrus pandemic.

Sandberg, it’s time for Black Adam to finally rise to power, and the Black Adam DC FanDome panel gave us an exciting first look, including a glimpse at the Justice Society of America members who will be entering the fray with him.
