After Seven ‘Fast & Furious’ Movies, A ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ Spinoff? Yes! (Trailer)

The fate of the world depends on Hobbs and Shaw working together? A second time? They really, REALLY must be out of their rabid rabbit azz MINDS!! Then again, looking at the trailer, this whole flick is an ‘Are you out of your #$%! mind???’ experience. And we are here for it!

After eight films that have amassed almost $5 billion worldwide, the Fast & Furious franchise now features its first stand-alone vehicle as Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham reprise their roles as Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw in Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw.

Ever since hulking lawman Hobbs (Johnson), a loyal agent of America’s Diplomatic Security Service, and lawless outcast Shaw (Statham), a former British military elite operative, first faced off in 2015’s Furious 7, the duo have swapped smack talk and body blows as they’ve tried to take each other down.

But when cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist Brixton (Idris Elba) gains control of an insidious bio-threat that could alter humanity forever — and bests a brilliant and fearless rogue MI6 agent (The Crown’s Vanessa Kirby), who just happens to be Shaw’s sister — these two sworn enemies will have to partner up to bring down the only guy who might be badder than themselves.

Hobbs & Shaw blasts open a new door in the Fast universe as it hurtles action across the globe, from Los Angeles to London and from the toxic wasteland of Chernobyl to the lush beauty of Samoa.

They got Idris running down the side of a skyscraper like it was flat land! Wow. Just wow. Do we even need fast cars at this point? Hahaaa!

I will admit to being really biased here (huge ‘rasslin fan), but this looks like a really great movie! Based on the life of WWE Superstar Paige. That, this trailer and the casting pulled me right in!

Based on a true story, FIGHTING WITH MY FAMILY follows reformed gangster Ricky, wife Julia, daughter Paige and son Zak as they make a living, wrestling together in tiny venues. When Paige and Zak get the opportunity to try out for WWE, the family grabs a once-in-a-lifetime chance to turn their wildest dreams into a dazzling future. However, brother and sister quickly discover that to become superstars, both their talent and their relationship will be put to the test.

FIGHTING WITH MY FAMILY is a heartwarming and smart comedy that proves everything is worth fighting for when it comes to family.

“Welcome To The Jungle” Baby! It’s The Next “Jumanji” Movie (Trailer)

Kevin Hart makes your comedy team! There, I said it, and it’s out there as FACT! Whether it’s him and Ice Cube, or again here with him and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson… HILARIOUS! Credit due though, this Jumanji installment features an ensemble cast that makes good on the fun adventure feel at the heart of the franchise. Check out the trailer above for “Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle.”

In the brand new adventure Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, the tables are turned as four teenagers in detention are sucked into the world of Jumanji. When they discover an old video game console with a game they’ve never heard of, they are immediately thrust into the game’s jungle setting, into the bodies of their avatars, played by Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan. What they discover is that you don’t just play Jumanji – Jumanji plays you. They’ll have to go on the most dangerous adventure of their lives, or they’ll be stuck in the game forever…
– Sony Pictures Entertainment

Confession: I hollered laughing when Johnson did the Don’t Cry part AND when Hart flipped out about the backpack holding him back. Them stoopit! Bwaaahahaa!

Ballers (Season 2 Teaser Trailer)

Are you Vin Diesel?
Nooo… I’m bigger and better looking.

Another reason it’s not just TV. HBO original series “Ballers” (starring Dewayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson) is coming back like it left the heist money! More highly-paid, frequently laid, off-field antics ahead this Summer to be certain. Looks like the fellas are still not going to act right. More money, more problems. And why not throw Andy Garcia into the mix for added Maybach-level mayhem? Check out the Season 2 teaser above.

San Andreas (Teaser Trailer)

“Where will you be, who will you be with, when everything falls apart?”

Coming this summer is the brand new disaster earthquake film “San Andreas” starring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. What should make this epic film frightening for many on the West Coast is the very real likelihood a disaster of this magnitude will take place because the San Andreas fault line runs underneath much of California. I’ve even heard & watched seismic experts say it’s not a question of “if”, but it’s a question of ‘When’ it will happen. Hopefully it doesn’t occur before the movie hits theaters on May 29, 2015.

“After the infamous San Andreas Fault finally gives, triggering a magnitude 9 earthquake in California, a search and rescue helicopter pilot (Dwayne Johnson) and his estranged wife make their way together from Los Angeles to San Francisco to save their only daughter.

But their treacherous journey north is only the beginning. And when they think the worst may be over…it’s just getting started.” – San Andreas Movie

Dewayne Johnson Stars in ‘Snitch’ (Movie Trailer)

This new movie “Snitch” – starring Dewayne “The Rock” Johnson – looks very interesting. But I am not sure if the premise is realistic. Although it says the movie is inspired by true events. Just saying… can you “switch snitch” for your son who won’t… and if you could would you? I dunno. But it’ll be action-packed regardless. I’m in!

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson on ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’ (Video)

WWE wrestler & movie star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night to speak on his family’s history in wrestling, upcoming projects & more.  I chuckled out loud at The Roots choice of theme music for the ‘The Rock’ to walk out to in their use of The Whispers classic 80s R&B record “Rock Steady”
