Dwayne Johnson is a mega star, whose charisma alone can elevate an otherwise mediocre action film (his bulk and toughness don’t hurt, either). The wrestler-turned-actor is currently promoting San Andreas, which looks to be another so-so movie that will draw and entertain audiences based on his star power alone. While doing press for that film, Johnson gave a couple of quick updates on a franchise we’re all a bit more interested in: Fast and Furious.

Dwayne Johnson is one of our most bankable and lovable action stars — whatever he does, you’ll be there. And his next project definitely sounds like something we want to see without even knowing the plot: Alpha Squad Seven, which is described as a sci-fi action comedy, was recently involved in a bidding war between studios, with DreamWorks ultimately scoring the rights.

I know San Andreas is a dark, serious disaster movie about a massive earthquake that decimates most of the West Coast, but c’mon; shouldn’t they have called it That Fault’s A’Rocking? It stars The Rock! It’s the San Andreas fault! It’s rocking! Because the earthquake and he’s Dwayne “The Rock” Johnsyou know what nevermind, let’s just move on.

If you go see Furious 7, there’s a lot to enjoy. From cars parachuting out of airplanes to Vin Diesel and Jason Statham fighting to The Rock walking down a city street shooting a helicopter out of the sky with a giant gatling gun. But, there are some smaller moments you might want to keep your eye out for too. Namely, some fun Furious 7 easter eggs for fans of the franchise and The Rock.

Last weekend, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson hosted SNL and did an amazing job. So, this guy can walk down a street with a giant gatling gun in Furious 7 and also be hilarious? It's almost not fair. But, The Rock's range doesn't stop there. Last night, he appeared on the debut episode of Lip Sync Battle, a spinoff of sorts from the popular segment on Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show, and of course he won. By lip syncing Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off”. This you gotta see.

Furious 7 almost certainly won’t be the last Fast & Furious movie. But at times it feels like a series finale. There are numerous callbacks and homages to the franchise’s entire 15-year history. The setpieces are bigger and crazier than ever; it’s hard to imagine anyone topping them. And before the chases really get rolling, the mood is often downright mournful. Two different scenes are set in graveyards, and characters talk about taking “one last ride” together.

SNL returns with an all-new episode, bringing Dwayne Johnson back to, uh, rock the stage for the fourth time as guest host. Johnson has charisma almost as big as his formidable biceps, and it’s always a treat to see him flex his comedic muscles. Okay, enough with the brawny puns. Johnson really delivers on his promise in this week’s episode, which is, aside from a couple of hiccups, almost entirely perfect. Read on for your weekly SNL sketch rankings.

As a former pro wrestler, Dwayne Johnson has plenty of experience cutting promos where he lays the verbal smackdown on his opponents. But what if he took things a little too far? That’s the premise of this delightful SNL sketch, which finds The Rock cutting the promo that crosses the line early on and never strops running.
