Tired of watching Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson suck it up in one boring family comedy after another? Did you, like me, finally write him off following the atrocity that was The Tooth Fairy? Are you still kind of itching to see this former wrestler get back to using those giant muscles to beat up bad guys instead of lift children's spirits? Well guess what – The Rock is back, baby!
USA Today has premiered the first image from Johnson's next film, Faster, where he'll play an ex-con who's out to avenge his brother's murder. And if you're not convinced at how badass this film is gonna be based on that image of a ripped Dwayne Johnson, then know that the man also gets shot in the head at some point during the film. Billy Bob Thornton and Carla Gugino also star as a couple of cops trying to stop Johnson before he knocks off too many people.
Says Thornton, "Some movies you do for money, some movies you do because they mean something to you personally. And some movies, like this one, you do for fun. Who doesn't want to be chasing and shooting at The Rock?" Um, well, when he looks like that, I think I'd rather watch him being chased from the comfort of my own home.
What say you? Do you like The Rock better when he's in action films or family comedies?
The Rock, Faster, Billy Bob Thornton, Carla Gugino
it was cute watching him in all those family movies... but that's really not what he's meant for.
Great news! I've been waiting for him to come back to action. I loved Walking Tall, and The Rundown. It's where he belongs.
finally!!!!! .. he looks like a BEAST in this pic. def excited for him now.
wow, finally he's back to kick a** movies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I loved him in The Rundown!! comedy/action are his best, but the strictly fam/comedy not so much...
Can't wait to see the Rock promote his movie when he is the next guest host on Monday Night Raw....that would be insane!!!!!
FINALLY, the Rock has come back to ACTION!
Love The Rock kicking *** and taking names, can't wait to see Faster but as a mother of 5 gotta love the kids stuff too! I admire him for the diversity of comedy and action!
I agree with SUICYDEKINGE statement because i would LOVE to see how a GOD OF WAR movie would come out. & the picks he made for the main character would be great.
I agree less comedy & more action for him, pull a Will Smith. I hope he gets asked for the role as Kratoes in God Of War. If not him then Vin Diesel, I'm just saying, Help a big fan of both the game & these guys get that ball rolling!
finally hes back im tired of those kids movies
Definitely like the action.
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
