UPDATE, 1:30 PM: Warner Bros.-New Line/Village Roadshow’s San Andreas is looking pretty sturdy. Early industry estimates show an estimated $15M Friday with an opening weekend of $39M-$41M. That’s right above the vicinity of Dwayne Johnson’s solo openers, i.e. The Scorpion King ($36.1M) and Hercules ($29.8M), and on par with the actor’s franchise sequel G.I. Joe: Retaliation ($40.5M). Fueling the friction on San Andreas‘ plates are 3,200 3D engagements out of its 3,777 total and Imax showtimes, which the Brad Peyton-helmed film is splitting with Walt Disney’s Tomorrowland.

Hercules posted a first Friday of $11.05M last July. Scorpion King which bowed 13 years ago in late April, minted $12.6M. According to tracking this morning, San Andreas was the most popular with men over 25 with a 91% total awareness and 16% first choice.

While Sony’s Aloha could take second tonight with an estimated $4.5M at 2,815 venues, it looks to wind up with a weekend of $12.3M which could put it fourth for the weekend behind Tomorrowland in second and Universal’s Pitch Perfect 2 in third. Aloha in tracking is hitting women over 25 at 71%, but with a low first choice for the demo at 6%.

Whoa San Andreas is start to finish so much better than it has any right to be….
PREVIOUS, 7:13 AM: San Andreas shook $3.1M out of moviegoers’ pockets last night. Sony’s Cameron Crowe romantic comedy Aloha also started hula-dancing with $500K at 2,275 theaters.

The Warner Bros.-New Line/Village Roadshow title is hoping for a $40M launch for the Brad Peyton film, which marks the director’s second outing with star Dwayne Johnson after Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. San Andreas will be sending seismic shocks into 3,777 theaters today, 85% of which are in 3D. Titles in the Roland Emmerich canon, i.e. 2012 and The Day After Tomorrrow, are the high points with the disaster film at the B.O., repping the genre’s heyday. 2012 posted a first Friday of $23.4M before raking in a $65.2M weekend, while TDAT, a Memorial Day release, also earned a first Friday of $23.5M followed by a $68.7M FSS.

San AndreasPer Fandango, San Andreas is far and away the weekend’s top ticket seller. San Andreas is outselling Johnson’s previous actioners Hercules and Journey 2 at the same point in the Fandango sales cycle. Last night’s ticket sales are, of course, rolled into Friday’s results.

On social, Dwayne Johnson, who is quite active, has a reach of 72.8M folks across Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. While the San Andreas Facebook page only has 526K followers according to RelishMix, the page’s videos are driving impressions very well with 65.2M Facebook total views and the top San Andreas trailer from March at 44M views. YouTube views are building well over the last week up to 29M with top daily views on the 70k per day range. Reposting is also strong at an earned, owned ration of 24 to 1.

Other good news for Warner Bros.: Their Mad Max: Fury Road crossed the $100M mark on Wednesday with its current cume at $102.3M.

While this weekend will obviously be down from the holiday frame a week ago, it is certain to be off from the $166.5M ticket sales that the frame rang up a year ago. That’s when Walt Disney’s Angelina Jolie Sleeping Beauty spinoff Maleficent worked its magic at the B.O. with a $69.4M opening.

Aloha is the second widest opener today in 2,815 venues. Crowe’s previous outing, the PG-rated We Bought a Zoo, was quite the Christmas sleeper in 2011 when it bowed to $9.4M and generated a crazy 8x multiple for a final domestic cume of $75.6M. While Aloha is expected to only make $8M-$10M this weekend, the hope is that the star-filled film (with Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone and Rachel McAdams) will stick around as counter-programming throughout the summer.

Last year he spent two months in Queensland, Australia filming disaster flick San Andreas.

And it certainly seems like Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson picked up some of the local culture during that time.

The 43-year-old made a special appearance on Nine’s coverage of Wednesday’s NRL State Of Origin, introducing the first of up to three New South Wales vs. Queensland clashes.

‘Origin,’ Johnson began. ‘It’s who you are. Where you’re from. Your ancestry. Blood, bone and meat. It’s parentage. Kin and race. Pedigree, dissent, stock.’

‘New South Wales versus Queensland. Played as only these superman can. Lighting up their birthplaces…this is where only the excellent excel.’

The A-list actor and former college football player paid tribute to some of the NRL’s greats, praising Allan ‘Alfie’ Langer, who has a medal named after him, all-time great Andrew ‘Joey’ Johns and current star player Greg Inglis.

Last April Johnson spent two months in Queensland, which at the time he called his ‘home away from home’ – so it’s not hard to guess what team he’s rooting for.

The annual State Of Origin is a best-of-three rugby series that pits the best players from New South Wales clubs against the best from Queensland – with each game selling out 50,000 and 80,000 seat stadiums.

Following The Rock’s introduction, Australian actor Ben Mingay, representing Queensland, had a musical clash with Shannon Noll, who wore NSW colours.

Johnson was last seen at the Los Angeles premiere of blockbuster disaster flick San Andreas on Tuesday.

The eight-time WWE Champion made a grand entrance, hanging off the side of a fire truck, before posing with mother Ata and daughter Simone.

He surely hopes to recapture the success of his last silver screen appearance, which was on Furious 7 – which is currently the fourth highest grossing film of all time.

Who cares if the movie is good? The promo efforts have already been worth it.

San Andreas may wind up being a gloomy, dreadful disaster movie, the kind of pessimistic apocalypse porn that this weekend’s would-be blockbuster Tomorrowland specifically called out for ruining, well, everything. But no matter what the movie itself holds, it’s hard to imagine any film this summer being promoted with the kind of cheerful, anything-for-a-headline verve that The Rock has been bringing these last few weeks.

A wrestler turned movie star who can make virtually anything seem like a good time, The Rock has jumped into promotional duties for San Andreas with the kind of energy that might seem exhausting, or grating, from anyone else. He teamed up with a YouTube video interview series to conduct a surprise wedding (and got licensed by the State of California to make it legal and everything):

He’s fended off marriage proposals of his own:

He’s doomed the dreams of the class of 2015:

He’s set a Guinness World Record—certified and everything!—for the most selfies taken within a three-minute period.

Sure, some of this is just your typical works of promotion in the social-media age—why do a regular talk-show appearance when you can do a sketch that goes viral? Why have an Instagram if not to stroke the egos of your fervent fans? (#FromMyHeart). But The Rock, who has basically been ever present since the Furious 7 promotional duties started up in March, is just better at it than everyone else. No one else deserves the Guinness World Record for selfies because no one else would seem to enjoy it as much as this guy does. No one else deserves to have become a star thanks to a lot of ridiculous movies because no one else could make it seem like a wonderful reward after a lot of hard work. San Andreas may not do the world any good as a movie, but The Rock is enough of a gift to humanity to make up for it.

As you know Dwayne The Rock Johnson has been a very busy man the last year. He was on overload at one time filming two movies and a tv show. (Yes, you read correctly) He even had time to revisit his roots and attend WrestleMania 31, where he cut a promo with UFC star Ronda Rousey. Not to mention that same weekend, the day before to be exact, Dwayne hosted Saturday Night Live for the 4th time.

The following weekend, The Rock saw a movie franchise he helped take to new heights break open the box office. That’s right, the seventh movie installment of The Fast and The Furious, Furious 7 became the #1 movie. It not only took the record of highest opening in April, it remained #1 for a number of weeks.

Now next weekend May 29th, the earth shattering, mega disaster movie San Andreas will show its epicness. This movie is the story of Ray Gaines and how far he will go to save not only his family but the whole city.

If you think I was done, I’m not. During the filming of the TV show and movies, Dwayne broke the news that he will play Black Adam in Shazam. He also made known that he will have a role in the animated tale Moana. Last but I’m sure not the end, The Rock Goes to Baywatch.

As we all know about the devastation that happened in Nepal, not once but twice. Having disaster strike in a moments notice can leave devastation and little to no means of survival. The times can be hard and help can be scarce. Dwayne Johnson sat down with People Magazine to reflect on what happened in Nepal.

Here is the full article:

The timing couldn’t be eerier for the release of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s San Andreas.

The premiere of the earthquake disaster flick – which details the destruction of San Francisco – comes just a month after the real-life devastation stemming from the 7.8-magnitude quake that rocked Nepal on April 25.

During a press conference for the film in Los Angeles on Saturday, Johnson spoke of the impact the Nepalese disaster had on the cast and crew of San Andreas.

“I think that we made the movie knowing and understanding the content of it and what we were making,” Johnson acknowledged. “The world we live in and the life we have today, these things happen. It?s so unfortunate, incredibly unfortunate. Prayers and thoughts continue to go out to everybody in Nepal and everybody who was affected by that.”

He added, “The truth is, you go into a project like this with everything you’ve got, your heart and your soul, and you just want to make a good movie.”

If there’s a silver lining to be found in disaster, Johnson says it would be “the ideology of family and strength coming together through a tragedy,” which he asserts is a strong theme throughout the movie.

The Furious 7 star also says he has some very personal experience enduring the violence of Mother Nature.

“I?ve been through natural disasters,” Johnson says, explaining that he was living in Miami when the category-five Hurricane Andrew hit in 1992.

“There were members of my family who thought they were going to die,” he says. “Everybody was in the bathtub. It was a tough, tough thing. So I think the idea of coming together, like we’re showcasing in our story, resonates with people.”

Johnson spent time training with first responders in L.A. and Australia to prepare for the role, an experience he tells PEOPLE allowed him to fully appreciate “just how special and unique they are, and it’s why so few are able to do it.”

The time he spent with the real-life heroes was a “life-changing experience.”

Earlier this week, we all saw the Instagram post where Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, was all smiles reading something. Well that something came from Steven Spielberg. Spielberg wrote Johnson a letter to congratulate him of all his success and of encouragement.

Johnson appeared at a press conference for the San Andreas Movie and was asked about the letter. Johnson became speechless, when the producer of San Andreas Beau Flynn spoke up and said “The letter was written as a fan. Dwayne added a little more by stating “he (Spielberg) helped me get away from reality and feel high on life through his movies. Johnson, producer Flynn and director Peyton all agreed that San Andreas has many elements of a Spielberg film and his work served as inspiration while making San Andreas.

Here is the caption from the Instagram post:

Grinnin’ now like a big ass kid… When I was 8yrs old I sat front row to see a sold out INDIANA JONES in its opening weekend in Charlotte, North Carolina. I walked out of that theater excited and wanted to be “Indy”.. cool, funny, charming with the ladies and kickin’ ass w/ a smile. But at 8yrs old I was also perfectly content playing w/ my Star Wars figures and sneaking off listening to Richard Pryor concerts. Throughout the years I’ve credited this man and his movies as being my greatest inspiration in becoming an actor and wanting to always make “his kind” of movies – entertaining, quality and above all else.. heart. Just receiving this personal letter from him and its not only made me incredibly humbled and grateful, but it’s also brought me back to being that 8yr old boy again who not only loves movies, but I now get to make the movies I love and enjoy the impact they have on others. THANK YOU STEVEN SPIELBERG for these inspiring and motivating words in your letter and cheers to making sure I’m always listening to that little voice in my gut. #CoolestGiftEver #BigAss8yrOldKid #SpielbergInspired

Being a mother is not the only job. A mother is a nurse who heals your pain, a housekeeper who cooks and cleans for you. A teacher who teaches you the fundamentals of life. A therapist who listens to all your problems. A driver who takes you where you need to go. Oh and don’t forget mom owns the bank where she gives you money. Being a mother takes strength and passion to keep a family together. Your pure determination to hold your family together is the unsung song no one ever cares to learn. Your warrior instincts do whatever it takes to make sure your family is together. You do whatever it takes when times get tough to see your family through. The moment you learned it was a boy, you knew he was destined for greatness. You loved him, you kept him safe and you showed him how to be a great person. The things he didn’t learn right away, you stilled loved him unconditionally because you knew that he wasn’t perfect but he was perfect for you. That is what motherhood is all about. You showed him that you would always be there no matter what and that family is everything. You know what your reward for that is mama Ata? A 6 foot 3 inches tall handsome man who loves you no matter what and would drop everything to see you taken care of. You gave him the strength and wisdom to be the amazing father he is today to Simone. Your special gift is your son. A son who became who he is today because of you. So for me personally, I would like to thank you for having the strength to raise an amazing son.

His entire fanbase (Team Bring It) thanks you for allowing him to become who he is today. A man who takes time out to greet fans whether in person or on social media. A man who is leading by example and helping men, women, and children find their wake up call. An inspiration for those who can’t seem to find their way to their destiny. His motivation to strive gives all of us the inspiration to succeed. He inspires us because you inspired him.

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

For this Sci Fi movie, Dwayne is using a producer he has worked with recently during the filming of San Andreas Beau Flynn. Jeremiah Friedman and Nick Palmer are behind the pitch which has Beau Flynn producing via his FlynnPictureCo. banner along with Johnson, who will produce through his 7 Bucks Productions.

The plot details are being kept on the dark side of the moon but the project is described as four-quadrant action-comedy adventure set in space. Independence Day, Armageddon and Guardians of the Galaxy are some of the watchwords.

The project is meant to act as a two-hander as well as launch a potential franchise.

The writers, who have several projects, mostly comedies, set up at studios ranging from Columbia to Universal, got the ball going less than two weeks ago over a dinner with Flynn and his exec Wendy Jacobson with only a one-line idea.

Sensing something out of this world, the quartet approached Johnson and his production company 7 Bucks, which fast-tracked development of the idea. (Flynn and Johnson have a long-standing relationship that dates back to 2012’s Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. The two worked together on last summer’s Hercules and have San Andreas opening May 29.

The project hit the town mid-week and had several studios bidding. It came down to DreamWorks and Paramount with DreamWorks acting aggressively to nab it.

Dany Garcia of the Garcia Companies will executive produce and Hiram Garcia will associate produce through 7 Bucks Productions.

Jacobson will oversee for FlynnPictureCo.

Johnson, who is prepping to shoot New Line’s comedy Cenral Intelligence with Kevin Hart, is repped by WME and Gang Tyre. He is also starring in Ballers which premieres on HBO June 21.

Friedman and Palmer are repped by UTA, Mosaic and Sloane Offer.
