You know the drill by now: a big star hits up a late night talk show to chat, laugh, maybe play a game, plug their latest project, and show a clip. It's a standard way to do things, but you know who doesn't care about standard ways of doing things? Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. And, really, who are we to argue with him?
Do you remember the Fungo Brothers? That mismatched sibling duo who were hellbent on creating bold, innovative workout techniques that were years ahead of their time? You know them! They invented the Thigh Master before it was, well, the Thigh Master. Not ringing a bell? That's okay, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Jimmy Fallon are here to help.
The new 'Hercules' trailer is upon us and it has everything you'd want from a big summer release starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in that title role. Big battles. Bulging muscles. Mythological beasts. Screaming. Slow motion. You know, the usual.
We've seen tons of pictures of Dwayne Johnson as the legendary hero from director Brett Ratner's 'Hercules,' but now you can see the action star in, well, action! In this new clip from the upcoming film, see Johnson's Hercules in his fabled lion's hood (which does look pretty badass, we gotta say) preparing to take on a whole army of bad guys.
Earlier this year, we saw what Renny Harlin's version of 'Hercules' looked like with 'Twilight' star Kellan Lutz in the title role, but now it's time for the strongman to take center stage. Brett Ratner is at the helm of this new adaptation of the 'Hercules' story with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in the role he was born to play.
Just as we said with HBO's earlier pickups of Jack Black-Tim Robbins comedy 'The Brink' and David Fincher's 'Utopia,' the final seasons of 'True Blood,' 'The Newsroom' and 'Boardwalk Empire,' atop the cancellations of 'Family Tree' and 'Hello Ladies' have left some major holes to fill in the lineup. Cue another series order, this time for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson pro-football comedy 'Ballers,' with such talent attached as Mark Wahlberg, Stephen Levinson and Rob Corddry!
'Batman Vs. Superman' (or as it's officially known, 'The Untitled Zack Snyder Super Hero Film'), is already crowded with superheroes, which makes it feel like Warner Brothers was trying to make the 'Man of Steel' sequel into a 'Justice League' movie. The latest rumor suggests that 'Batman Vs. Superman' won't be a 'Justice League' movie, but will lead directly into one that will co-star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
Earlier today, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson answered questions from fans as part of a free-for-all Twitter Q&A. Although you can check out the rest of the questions and answers by searching for the #RockTalk hashtag, one item should prove particularly interesting to fans of comic book movies. The beloved action star said that he's met with Warner Bros. executives concerning a DC Comics movie of some kind.
Dwayne Johnson's movie stock remains consistently on the rise, but should the 'Fast & Furious' actor decide to make forthcoming HBO pilot 'Ballers' a permanent home, he'll at least be in good company. 'Hot Tub Time Manchine 2' star Rob Corddry has officially signed on to the new Mark Wahlberg-produced sports dramedy, but will it be a permanent position?
