The Rock must be especially pissed over this. He hates that candy-ass! Fast and Furious franchise star (and ham & cheese sculpture muse) Vin Diesel is 2017’s top grossing actor. The global take on his movies was $1.6 BILLION. 2017 must have been as awful a year as believed, because people worldwide obviously needed the distractions. We’re not talking Streep or Day-Lewis here. His best role is Groot, and Groot’s got one line and he’s CGI. Continue reading
More than 30 women in Hollywood are reportedly planning on showing up to the 2018 Golden Globes in black as a silent protest against the industry’s history of rampant sexual harassment and assault. Rose McGowan wasn’t feeling that protest, so I can only imagine how she feels about this latest act of red carpet bravery. According to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and celebrity stylist Ilaria Urbinanti, several men will be joining in on the all-black silent protest too.
During those first heady days of The Trump Presidency I made a joke on twitter that read:
Ready for a buddy movie starring @terrycrews & @TheRock as POTUS and VPOTUS that turns out to be real life when you walk out of the theater
That joke was dated November 20th, 2016. And it was, well a JOKE. Turns out the universe is very interested in my Twitter feed (but refuses to follow me despite repeated requests) because it has conspired to make my joke a reality. The Rock has talked about running for president, and has even made some moves . And he talked about it again on Ellen.
I’ll give em’ one thing, that’s a rad poster. San Diego Comic-Con happened. It should actually be called “San Diego Blockbuster Movie Tentpole Franchise Preview-Con” because it looks like actual comic books gave movie studios a whole bunch of material to work with and then left the building awhile ago. Do they even HAVE actual comics at SDCC? DC announced a whole mess of superhero movies coming down the pike (via Digital Spy). We’re talking YEARS of super-hero movies. And yet, still no Wonder Twins flick. For shame! Here’s the round-up. (For those of you who don’t care, I’m sure we’ll eventually have a non-geek post soon.) Continue reading
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson hosted the Saturday Night Live season finale last night and announced he was running for president, as he threatened in GQ. He also brought out America’s Dad Tom Hanks and announced him as his running mate. I’m on board.
Right now, I’d stump for a facecloth, or a teacup poodle or an impacted molar for POTUS at this point. Literally, ANYTHING would be better than the “berzerker child” option with which America went. Check out The Rock’s monologue, below.
SNL also revisited their post-election cold open. This time, instead of Kate McKinnon covering Hillary Clinton covering Leonard Cohen, it was Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump and the rest of the cast as his administration and family (with a surprise cameo from Scarlett Johansson as Ivanka “Complicit” Trump). Here it is:
Wait, SNL’s done for the season? Where am I going to get my news? Will Anderson Cooper keep insulting the president’s lackeys on CNN? Can we get confirmation on that? That could be my sole news source now if he keeps being a shady lady to stupids.
Back in June, The Washington Post published a piece about how Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson could win if he ran for President of the United States. The Rock let it be known he was flattered and that the thought of being President was “alluring,” but that it was kind of a far-away idea. Well, the allure of laying the smack down in the White House is apparently growing for The Rock.
