For the first time in 30 years, the Oscars won’t have a host this year. Comedian Kevin Hart was previously slated to act as master of ceremonies, but some controversy arose following some old jokes on Twitter, and he decided to step down. But Kevin Hart wasn’t even the first choice to host the Oscars. Instead, it was one of his Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle co-stars.
The always charismatic Dwayne Johnson recently revealed that he was the first choice to host the Oscars this year. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out. But the door isn’t closed on having The Rock host the ceremony at some point. Read More »

Dwayne Johnson now has a huge blockbuster career, but before that, he was one of the most popular professional wrestlers in the world. Now he’s returning to his roots as himself in the new comedy Fighting with My Family, written and directed by Stephen Merchant, the creator of the UK version of The Office.

And the result is not only the wrestling movie fans have always wanted, but one of the best underdog sports movies ever made about a female athlete. Read More »
When the blockbuster season rolls around, we won’t be getting a full-fledged Fast and Furious movie with the whole crew. Instead, we’ll see Fast and Furious Presents Hobbs and Shaw, a musical spectacular featuring two cars struggling to get by in the big city.
All right, that would be amazing. But in reality, Hobbs and Shaw is the first Fast and Furious spin-off film. Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham take the lead as the two titular characters, and just in case you forgot these two guys are from two very different worlds, the first Hobbs and Shaw teaser poster serves as a good reminder.

Star Dwayne Johnson took to Instagram to reveal that Luke Hobbs’ extended family will play a role in the film. And yes, they’re all beefy, tattooed Samoan gentlemen.
