The Fast and Furious series has been a sleeping giant for Universal Pictures, growing from a modestly successful franchise into a cultural juggernaut over the course of a decade. And like other cultural juggernauts owned or licensed by Universal, the increasingly wacky adventures of Dominic Toretto and his family eventually jumped into the theme park realm. Fast and Furious: Supercharged made its debut at Universal Studios Hollywood earlier this year and it was just announced that the ride is heading to the studio’s Florida park. But it’s going to have to be very different and that is what has us interested.

In 50 years, when some great journalist sits down to write the comprehensive biography of Zac Efron, the success of Neighbors will earn a special chapter. After all, that film was where Efron stopped being a fresh-faced, kid-friendly Disney star and started being a genuinely charming screen presence with some fairly serious comic chops. The future beyond that looks cloudy, so we don’t know if his decision to join the Baywatch movie will be viewed by future historians as a mistake or a surprisingly canny decision.

It should hardly come as a surprise that guys like Robert Downey Jr., Will Smith and Tom Cruise are among the highest-paid actors in the world. For his part, Downey Jr. is one of the biggest stars in the biggest movie franchise, while Cruise churns out one blockbuster after another, and the very presence of Smith commands huge box office returns. Predictability aside, there are some surprises on this year’s list of the highest-paid actors in the world.

It’s a big week for Dwayne Johnson’s upcoming projects, as two have now secured directors.

As we reported last month, Dwayne Johnson is set to star in the long-gestating Rampage, reuniting with his San Andreas producer for the adaptation of the classic arcade game. It looks as though that’s not the only San Andreas reunion happening for the project, as New Line has hired director Brad Peyton to helm the film.

Dwayne Johnson hosted the best episode of SNL’s 40th season (this may be debatable in your mind, but not mine), bringing his seemingly effortless blend of comedic timing and charisma to the stage in a series of sketches that were relentlessly funny. SNL had plenty of material to choose from when it came to airtime, so the fact that one of these great sketches went unaired is hardly surprising.

If there’s one thing any TV network worth their salt would realize, it’s not to let go of talent like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, no matter the project. Hence, despite moderate reviews, Johnson will officially return to the Stephen Levinson-adapted Ballers for Season 2 in 2016.

Faster than a speeding bullet, Comic-Con is upon once again. The biggest, nerdiest party in the world kicks off on Wednesday in San Diego and, yes, Team ScreenCrush will be on hand to cover it all. With Marvel, Sony, and Paramount, all sitting out this year’s big geek bash, the clear #1 panel to anticipate is Warner Bros. Saturday morning showcase of their upcoming slate. The presentation will include clips from the new live-action Pan starring Hugh Jackman, and the movie version of the ’60s spy series The Man From U.N.C.L.E. But the star attraction is unquestionably an appearance by Zack Snyder and the stars of next spring’s hotly anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Who doesn’t love Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson? The guy is the embodiment of charisma with his dashing smile, heroic good looks and his excellent comedic timing. From kicking bad guy butt in action films to hosting what was probably the best episode of SNL this past season, Johnson is always captivating to watch. As it turns out, not only are we lowly, average humans big fans of The Rock, but so is Steven Spielberg.
