Dwayne Johnson’s ‘The Rock-et’ Stunt Cracks Up Twitter

People Notice There’s Something Wrong With The Rock’s New Movie Poster, And Things Escalate Quickly

Soon after Dwayne Johnson shared a poster on Twitter for his upcoming action-adventure film Skyscraper, Twitterati went berserk! Slated for a summer 2018 release, the ‘original concept’ film (or so The Rock claims) will see his character Will Ford, a former FBI Hostage Rescue Team leader, who now assesses security for skyscrapers. In the poster, Johnson can be seen jumping from one skyscraper to another but that didn’t go well with Twitterati, who have called it ‘The Rock-et’ jump, especially with the geeks, who have gone all out with laws of physics and complex mathematics to mock this stunt.

This is not the first time Johnson has garnered such kind of attention. His previous films too have turned him into a superhero, especially when it comes to his disaster films. Add to that, these films make humongous amounts at the box-office. San Andreas (The Rock versus an earthquake) earned $155 million domestic and $474m worldwide, making it Warner Bros. biggest global grosser in 2015 and the biggest grossing “not based on anything” live-action release of that year. Central Intelligence, which was an action comedy starring Johnson and Kevin Hart, earned $127m domestic and $216m on a $50m, was by default the year’s second-biggest grossing wholly original live-action movie in North America.

Skyscraper is an upcoming American action thriller film directed and written by Rawson M. Thurber. The film stars Dwayne Johnson, Neve Campbell, Chin Han, Roland Møller, Pablo Schreiber, Byron Mann, Hannah Quinlivan, and Noah Taylor. Filming started September 2017 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. It will be released in 3D by Universal Pictures on July 13, 2018. Scroll down to check out if that impossible jump is too big even for The Rock himself and feel free to watch the trailer for the movie below:
