black adam cast Uli Latukefu

Uli Latukefu, who plays one of the young Rocks on Young Rock, is joining Dwayne Johnson in Black Adam. Latukefu’s Black Adam role remains a mystery for now, but it’s clear he made an impression on the wrestler-turned-actor, as he was hand-picked by Johnson to play one of his younger selves on the sitcom and is now following Johnson into a big superhero blockbuster. Of course, now you have to wonder if the other young Rocks from Young Rock are jealous that they’re not being offered Black Adam roles.

Teddy and the Guardians of the Night

Back in 2013, word arrived that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was going to make a movie based on a single drawing that appeared on DeviantArt. That’s right – not an adaptation of a story, but a drawing – a piece called “Sweet Halloween Dreams” by artist Alex Panagopoulos. The project seemed to vanish as quickly as it was announced, but now it’s back – and headed to Netflix. Johnson will produce the film, now titled Teddy and the Guardians of the Night, with Dany Garcia under their Seven Bucks Productions banner.

Southland Tales prequel

Southland Tales debuted almost 15 years ago at the Cannes Film festival. All of these years later, love it or hate it, the Richard Kelly film remains something movie fans keep talking about. The conversation around the ambitious science fiction film continues as Arrow Films has released a limited edition Blu-Ray, including the infamous “Cannes cut,” which runs longer than the theatrical version. This version remains unfinished, without all the effects work complete, but nonetheless, Kelly’s pop culture-infused surrealist epic gets more breathing room. It’s fuller yet more relaxed compared to the theatrical cut.

Over the past few years, the lunacy and nightmarish imagery of Southland Tales came to mind more than once or twice. We spoke to Kelly about the movie’s mirror of the world, his Cannes experience, and his plans for future stories in the Southland Tales universe.

young rock trailer

Dwayne Johnson has had a pretty amazing life. A wrestler-turned-football-player-turned-actor, the multi-hyphenate is one of the most recognizable (and well-paid) faces in the world. But every famous figure has to come from somewhere, and that’s exactly what Young Rock explores. The NBC sitcom, created by Fresh Off the Boat creators Nanatchka Khan and Jeff Chiang tells the story of, well, the young Rock, stretching back to when he was a boy living in Hawaii, to his young adulthood as an aspiring wrestler. Watch the full Young Rock trailer below.

young rock trailer

Everyone knows the picture: a young Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, looking ripped and sporting a pencil-thin mustache. Surely a picture of the wrestler-turned-actor in his early WWE days, right? Wrong, it’s a 15-year-old Johnson, looking like a full-blown adult who must have terrified the fellow teenagers at his high school. The actor has even joked that his fellow students thought he was an undercover cop. It’s an absurd idea — one that may be absurd enough for a TV show.

And it is. Johnson’s childhood has been turned into an NBC sitcom called Young Rock, a comedy executive produced by Fresh Off the Boat creators Nanatchka Khan and Jeff Chiang, which aims to tell the actor’s origin story. Watch the Young Rock trailer below.

some good news dwayne johnson

In the early days of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, John Krasinski shined a light on the uplifting stories of the world with Some Good News, a charmingly lo-fi web series in which the Quiet Place director gave the spotlight to good deeds amid the overwhelming dread and rising body count of the pandemic. It was a nice little gesture, and one that was even Emmy-qualifying, but Krasinski seemingly appeared to wrap it up months ago to package the idea for a more traditional news outlet. But unexpectedly, Krasinski brought it back for the holidays with the help of Dwayne Johnson — excuse me — “Dwanta Claus.”
