It’s been said many, many times that no one does #TBT as well as The Rock.

Given that the MTV Video Music Awards are this Sunday, we wanted to help Dwyane “The Rock” Johnson with his #TBT photo and suggested this picture from the 2000 VMAs.

The People’s Champion saw our tweet and critiqued his outfit with brutal honesty.

Yes, The Rock even managed to make his co-presenter that evening, Kid Rock, look like a fashion maven

Article: A Deeper Look Into The Samoan Ink of Dwayne Johnson (The Rock Files #11)

the meaning of dj tattoo_00_01_06_09_48the meaning of dj tattoo_00_02_03_06_94

Seeing how WWE has premiered a new show Superstar Ink, which features wrestling’s top superstars sitting down and giving the universe an inside look at their tattoos, we decided to give you an inside glimpse of the story behind Dwayne Johnson’s full Samoan inspired tattoo.

The story behind Dwayne’s tattoo is a very strong and elaborate one. Dwayne went to his tattoo artist and both talked for hours before any work began and even said a prayer. The tattoo was so elaborate that it took 60 hours, three sessions which lasted 20 hours each. The tattoo is a story about his life, his journey. His ancestors and his culture. Dwayne is all about family, as we know he is apart of the Samoan heritage,his mother is Samoan and the African American heritage of his father. He wanted the tattoo to represent him taking care of and protecting his family, the spirit of his ancestors. It also represents great struggle and overcoming that great struggle. Also of how he is appreciative of his success. The spirit also of Puumana (which means spirit of the flower) which in his story means the spirit of the woman. Dwayne says how blessed he has been to have a family of strong women. His whole tattoo means basically three things: family, protecting his family and having a very aggressive warrior spirit. You can’t hold his spirit down, he will keep fighting. This is why the majority of the tattoo is on his heart. It gives him peace. He says that he has enough story to cover his body in tattoos. One thing is for sure the Samoan Dynasty is one strong family. We look forward to the next steps this family takes.

Ratings: ‘Ballers’ Ends First Season as HBO’s Most-Watched Comedy in Six Years
image

Saddled with a soft lead-in and up against the big premiere of AMC’s “Fear the Walking Dead,” HBO’s Dwayne Johnson football comedy “Ballers” wrapped its first season with its smallest same-night tune-in to date, but it still finishes as the network’s most-watched half-hour program in six years.

Sunday’s episode averaged 1.43 million viewers, according to Nielsen “live plus same-day estimates,” below its previous low of 1.57 million set one week earlier. After getting a solid lead-in from “True Detective” for most of its run, “Ballers” has aired behind the lightly watched “Show Me A Hero” for its last two weeks. On Sunday, “Hero” drew just 397,000 for its 9 p.m. airing.

According to the network’s analysis of Nielsen data, “Ballers” averaged a gross weekly multi-platform audience of 8.8 million viewers. That puts it third all-time among HBO comedies, behind “Sex and the City” (10.3 million) and the first season of “Hung” in 2009 (9.3 million).

In “live plus same-day” viewing, “Ballers” bowed in June with 2.16 million viewers, edging out the second-season premiere of “Silicon Valley” (2.13 million) as the network’s most-watched comedy episode since the series finale of “Entourage” in 2011 (2.61 million). Prior to Sunday’s finale, “Ballers” averaged 1.73 million viewers in “live plus same-day” and 2.55 million in “live+3.”

In adults 18-49, a key primetime advertising demo that has relatively little meaning for commercial-free HBO, “Ballers” averaged a series-low 0.71 rating on Sunday. For the season prior to Sunday, it averaged a 0.86 rating in same-day and a 1.31 rating in L+3. It ranks No. 1 among all new scripted cable series for the summer.

HBO’s other new comedy this summer, “The Brink,” quietly performed well and drew 872,000 viewers in “live plus same-day” for its finale. For its season prior to Sunday, the comedy fronted by Jack Black and Tim Robbins averaged 5.5 million viewers to rank seventh among most-watched HBO comedy seasons.

Forbes Article: How Dwayne Johnson Is Trying To Be The Next Will Smith

image

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is apparently starring in the long-gestating movie adaptation of Walt Disney’s The Jungle Cruise. The comedic adventure film, based on one of the older Disneyland/Disney World theme park attractions, was positioned as a Tom Hanks/Tim Allen reunion vehicle of sorts for what feels like decades, but nothing ever came of it. Obviously Disney has been going about turning its theme park attractions into movies for a while now, with some (Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl) working better than others (The Country Bears). The project is one of about 467 films that Johnson has lined up. Moreover, his recent decision making points to a career arc not unlike the one Will Smith attempted back in the mid-90′s that eventually turned him into the biggest movie star in the world for a time. In short, Dwayne Johnson is specifically seeking out explicitly commercial movies that people might actually want to see Dwayne Johnson starring in.

That was Will Smith’s career path as well. From 1995 to around 2012, give or take a few “one for me” projects, Mr. Smith specifically picked outwardly commercial high-concept pictures. At first, the emphasis was on science-fiction action movies, as Smith had (not inaccurately) decided that said movies were the clearest path to box office glory. But even when he expanded into other genres (the romantic comedy Hitch, the economic mobility drama The Pursuit of Happyness, the superhero deconstruction Hancock), the commercial impulse was there. And Smith had an astonishing hit streak from 2002 to 2012, with eight straight $100 million+ domestic blockbusters. Regardless of whether you think any of these films were any good, or irrespective of whether you think Smith is any good in them, Will Smith became one of our biggest blockbuster movie stars partially by explicitly choosing movies with overt blockbuster potential. And that, for better or worse, is what Dwayne Johnson is doing.

And because this is 2015 and not 1995, part of the so-called blockbuster package involves either pre-established properties or, in the absence of that, a paper-thin high concept. So the Dwayne Johnson of 2015 is making a movie based on The Jungle Cruise, a movie based on the Baywatch television show, a movie based on the Rampage video game, and a movie based on the DC Comics/Time Warner Inc. title Shazam, where he will play the villainous Black Adam. These are not going to win any Oscars, and I might argue, based on San Andreas and Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, that they are almost beneath him in terms of acting challenges. But they are wholly commercial films that will not only give The Rock more blockbuster hits under his belt but will make more money because they starred The Rock than if they didn’t.

He has become something of a pro at the newfangled movie star ideal, which as “big star + prepackaged concept.” The reason I tend to write about Dwayne Johnson a lot, and I am aware that I do, is because he is one of the few big movie stars consistently making big movie star vehicles in this day-and-age. That’s not necessarily a “testament to his genius” or any such silliness so much as an acknowledgment that Hollywood doesn’t make many outright star vehicles anymore. In the era of the concept-driven fantasy tentpole, the star, assuming the studios even opt for a real movie star, is so secondary to the concept that the star is almost beside the point. Sure, Ben Affleck as Batman is a big deal, but the idea of Ben Affleck in a superhero movie is secondary to the notion of a Batman movie. And I don’t have to list the bazillion would-be franchises that were launched on the back of barely-known young male actors.

What’s interesting about The Rock’s upcoming choices, along with the $467 million-grossing San Andreas (his biggest solo hit ever by a lot), is that they are big would-be blockbuster movies where the star is arguably as important, if not more so, than the prepackaged concept. And yes, that’s different from Brett Ratner’s underrated Hercules, which was basically a straight Dwayne Johnson sell and thus “only” made $243m on a $100m budget for Paramount/Viacom Inc. In terms of star vehicle movie stars, there is still Tom Cruise. But he came of age in an era when, to a certain extent, making really good movies in the studio system could make you a star without any franchise potential or prepackaged concepts.

And there is, of course, a downside to all of this, which is why the early Will Smith years come to mind. Even after being in Hollywood for 20 years and earning two Oscar nominations, Smith still has to fight the (rather absurd) notion that he is a soulless blockbuster machine who isn’t that good of an actor. As someone who was shocked by how genuinely good of an actor Dwayne Johnson was in The Rundown and then amused by his “make it look easy” charisma in films like Be Cool and Get Smart, I don’t necessarily want to see the actor disappear entirely into the prefabricated blockbuster machine. Movies like San Andreas will continue to make him a movie star, but I hope he takes the time to knock out a Pain and Gain or a Snitch now and then as well.

But for the moment it will be interesting to see how these explicitly blockbuster-friendly choices play out, both artistically and commercially. The Jungle Cruise, as a movie, will be an interesting challenge. The appeal of the ride is not its would-be spectacle but rather the snarky, sarcastic, and pun-filled narration offered by the riverboat captain each time out (maybe Weird Al Yankovic will cameo as Skipper Dan). Dwayne Johnson, over the last five years or so, has shown a genuine shrewdness in terms of picking the kinds of projects that would not only garner solid box office but would net him more than a little credit for said successes. The game today is not the mere star vehicle but, when it’s available, the star+concept package sell. As such, he is playing the game in a way that reminds me of a younger Will Smith. But I do hope that Dwayne Johnson the actor doesn’t get swallowed whole by Dwayne Johnson the movie star.

Dwayne Johnson to Star in ‘Jungle Cruise’ Movie for Disney

Disney is moving forward with an untitled film revolving around its “Jungle Cruise” theme park attraction with Dwayne Johnson attached to star.

“Crazy Stupid Love” helmers John Requa and Glenn Ficarra are on board to pen the script. John Davis and John Fox of Davis Entertainment will produce. Kristin Burr is overseeing for Disney.

The studio has been trying to develop a film based around the safari ride for sometime, with Tom Hanks and Tim Allen each attached to star at some point. Plot details are unknown at this time, other than the fact that it will be a period piece.

Following the success of “The Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, Disney has pushed hard to find ways to use its various brand-name theme park attractions as a basis for feature films. A “Haunted Mansion” pic is currently in development with Ryan Gosling attached to star; an earlier “Haunted Mansion” film with Eddie Murphy did not succeed at the box office.

Johnson is coming off a huge summer with his film “San Andreas” and new TV series “Ballers” both faring well. Johnson recently wrapped production on “Central Intelligence,” which bows next summer, and he’s expected to shoot the comedy “Baywatch” at the start of 2016.

He is repped by WME, the Garcia Companies and Gang Tyre. The news was first reported by the Hollywood Reporter.

Article + Video: Boot Camp Graduation Gets Electrifying

Graduates of Miami-Dade Corrections’ boot camp program got quite the treat Monday afternoon when Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson popped up in the audience.

Graduation ceremonies are pretty big in it of themselves but even better is when the Hollywood star is in attendance and it’s all for a documentary that he’s working on that’s near and dear to his heart.

Johnson shook hands with the more than 30 Cadets from the Miami-Dade County Corrections and Rehabilitation Department Boot Camp Program as they marked the culmination of six months of hard work at the Metro Justice Building in Miami.

Their families, drill instructors, judges and city officials were on hand for the big occasion.

The graduating class is made up of young men and women between the ages of 14 and 24 who are currently in custody and were sentenced to the Boot Camp program.

The program’s goal is to give them the tools needed to successfully re-enter the community, with the hopes and likelihood that they will not re-offend in the future.

Johnson talked about why he wanted to show the world what this program is all about.

“Three years ago, I had the opportunity to visit some of the cadets and I spoke to them and the moment I walked into the facility I knew this place was something special. I spoke to them. I gave the cadets my history, my background. When I was 13 or 14, I started getting arrested, doing a lot of things I shouldn’t have been doing, multiple times I was arrested before I got to the University of Miami, not after I got to the University of Miami and I wanted them to know that life does go on and they’re going to have another opportunity. So after I spoke three years ago, I went back home. I went back home to my production team and I said, ‘there’s a very, very special place here and I think that we should create show, some show that can highlight and showcase what they’re doing and the impact that the boot camp is making. We need to show that to the world,” said Johnson.

The boot camp program is credited for helping nearly 90 percent of all graduates turn their lives around thanks to the training and mentoring they receive.

There is no word of when exactly the documentary will air but one thing that’s for sure is that “The Rock” sure is a busy man.

Johnson said in November, he’s going to be taping his show “Ballers” which airs on HBO and also he’s getting ready for the movie “Baywatch.”

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson makes surprise appearance for Disney’s ‘Moana’: ‘This is my heritage’
imagesRRQZBPNS

Disney brought its upcoming animated adventure Moana to Friday’s D23 Expo in Anaheim with the help of surprise guest Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

The film, set in the ancient South Pacific world of Oceania, follows spirited teenager Moana, who longs to be a “wayfinder,” or navigator. She takes to the seas to find the long-lost island that can connect her to her ancestors, along the way teaming up with Maui (Johnson).

“This is my heritage,” an emotional Johnson told the audience at the Disney fan expo. “I am proudly half-Samoan and half-black.”

In the film, Moana and Maui battle monsters of the deep and explore an underworld where the ocean is the ceiling above them. There, they encounter the ancient ones, but they also cross paths with a vengeful island spirit made of molten lava, the Guardian of Tefiti.

The D23 presentation featured two clips from the film, one of which showed the heroine as a bay, interacting with the ocean, which is essentially its own character in the film. The water parts so she can collect shells, exposing a turtle swimming by and other sea life, plays with her hair, and eventually pushes her back to shore when her dad calls for her.

Another clip gave fans a better look at Johnson’s Maui, a large man with long, black, curly hair who is covered in tattoos (which themselves are animated to move) and wears a shell necklace as well as bottoms made out of plants. A self-professed demigod, Maui also wielded a giant fishhook in what seemed like an attempt to show off to Moana. “What does a demigod have to do?” he asks, when it’s clear that she’s not impressed.

Johnson said that his character was born human but was raised by gods, so he never quite fit in one way or the other — and that Moana could be the person to help him find his true self.

The presentation also featured a song from the movie, performed live by South Pacific fusion band Te Vaka, which uses traditional island instruments. Moana will feature music from Te Vaka artist Opetaia Foa’I, a New Zealand guitarist; Mark Mancina, the composer behind Con Air, Speed, Tarzan, and Planes; and Lin-Manuel Miranda, who won a Tony and an Emmy for In the Heights. Miranda is the mastermind behind the new Broadway show Hamilton, a hip-hop version of the life of Alexander Hamilton.

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson could appear at WWE SummerSlam
image

CLEVELAND, Ohio — With WWE’s SummerSlam less than two weeks away and lacking a bit of star power, one of WWE’s biggest superstars of all time may be coming to the rescue.

Rumor has it Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson could make an appearance at the Aug. 23 summer extravaganza, which WWE has pushed from three, to four hours long.

The rumors stem from a recent interview WWE star Roman Reigns gave to Fox Sports, in which he was asked if The Rock could be at SummerSlam.

“I wanna tell you, but I don’t want to give anything away,” Reigns said. “It’s The Rock, Dwayne Johnson, biggest superstar on Earth, possibly. If he wants to show up to Brooklyn, he’s going to show up to Brooklyn. It wouldn’t be the first time and it probably won’t be the last time. It’s WWE. Anything can happen.”

Having The Rock appear at SummerSlam makes sense. So far, WWE has announced eight matches for the pay-per-view. But only The Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar match has much buzz.

WCW legend Sting was initially rumored to appear at the pay-per-view. But that suggestion has since been batted down.

The Rock could be just what the doctor ordered in justifying WWE’s claim that SummerSlam will be as big as WrestleMania. The only issue is that the finale of The Rock’s HBO series “Ballers” is set to air the same night.

SummerSlam will take place in Brooklyn and will include the Ultimate SummerSlam Experience, featuring several panels with superstars/Hall of Famers like Shawn Michaels, Reigns, Triple H and Kevin Nash.

The last time The Rock showed up in Brooklyn he laid the smack down on Rusev in epic fashion.
