Freedom grad Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will be back for “Fast & Furious 8,” as the seventh installment of the “Fast & Furious” franchise breaks records. On Friday the film which stars Johnson, along with Vin Diesel and the late Paul Walker, became the fastest movie to gross $1 billion worldwide in just 17 days. Having earned $1.153 billion, it is now the seventh highest-grossing film of all time.

Johnson told MTV News that “Fast & Furious 8” might be set in New York City.
Johnson also signed with Disney to voice the demi-god Maui for the studios next animated musical “Moana.”

In the film, a young woman uses her navigational talents to set sail for a fabled island and is joined by her hero, Maui.
On Facebook, Johnson confirmed he will be singing in the film “Manly and off key of course” he said.
“Moana” is set for a Nov. 26, 2016 release.

Next up on the big screen for Johnson is the 3-D disaster flick “San Andreas” which is coming out May 29 and in which Johnson plays a helicopter pilot who makes a dangerous journey across the state in order to rescue his estranged daughter in the aftermath of a massive earthquake in California.

Johnson, who attended Freedom High School in 11th and 12th grades, was the box office champion at the movies in 2013, according to Forbes magazine, which said his movies generated $1.3 billion in ticket sales.

The seventh installation to The Fast and the Furious has soared to new heights. After making one of the biggest premieres in April alone, it has burst past the $1 Billion record. True there are higher movies like Avatar but the Furious 7 movie has broken a record. For Avatar and the other movies, it took about 20 days to get there. 7 only took 17 days to reach this milestone. Globally ticket sales are over $1.009, $739 million overseas alone. $274 million in North America. I don’ t know if it was the over the top trailers or the fact that people wanted to see how the remaining  cast members would pay tribute to the late Paul Walker, but this movie is on the way to the very top.

I have recently seen the movie and lets just say all of your emotions will be used for this movie. With the success of the first 7 installments, hopefully the saga continues.

The 2015 MTV Movie Awards - Show

Dwayne Johnson has been a busy man. Coming off of huge success with Furious 7, he took on MTV this week to promote his new movie San Andreas which hits theaters on May 29th. Dwayne stopped by the studios to not only take over MTV Takeover with the new movie trailer, but he also made several hilarious videos with interviewers.

He was not done there, Dwayne Johnson also appeared at tonight’s awards to give out Movie of the Year which he also laid some humorous taglines down for each movie. From Selma to Fault Within Our Stars, Johnson made sure to sum up the movies just fine without giving away the whole movie.

The winner of the week in none other than…drum roll please: The Rock. With a record-shattering film, a new show from HBO, and complete domination of karaoke, Dwayne Johnson has won the week. This is yet another achievement for the former WWE star, whose own magnetism nears levels that might throw off the Large-Hadron Collider.

On the other side of the spectrum, in terms of winning, is the perennial loser of the sea – cod. The Rock, in Muscle & Fitness magazine, broke down his diet, which consists of over 36 oz. of cod a day. That’s 821 pounds of cod a year. Good cod that’s a lot of cod!

Expect things to get worse for cod as thousands of Rock-wannabes look for nutrition in the pushover of the seas. It’s going to be a massacre.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is all about making deals and dollars in his newest role.

Johnson premiered a short trailer for his upcoming HBO series Ballers on his Instagram account shortly before HBO posted the full trailer, offering a first look at his role as retired football player Spencer Strassmore.

Ballers focuses on a group of players, both retired and still active, and takes a look at their personal and professional lives. Johnson is joined by a cast that includes Omar Benson Miller, John David Washington, Rob Corddry, and LeToya Luckett.

The show was created by Steve Levinson, who wrote the pilot, which is directed by Peter Berg.

Ballers is only one of many projects for Johnson, who recently announced a partnership with USA Network, is starring in the upcoming San Andreas, and just came off the box office success of Furious 7 and a well-received stint hosting Saturday Night Live. Oh, and he even had time to lip sync to Taylor Swift.

Ballers is set to debut on June 21 alongside True Detective and The Brink.

If there’s anything that can bring two ex-spouses together, it’s a life-or-death situation. And to say that San Andreas is about a life-or-death situation is an understatement.

In the film, Dwayne Johnson and Carla Gugino play the exes, who are brought together by the search to find their daughter after an enormous earthquake hits the west coast. MTV has a new clip from the film, which shows Ray (Johnson) attempting a helicopter rescue of his ex-wife when things take a turn for the worse. Let’s just say it’s hard to rescue someone when the entire world around them is collapsing.

He last saw Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson when the A-lister came Down Under last year to promote Hercules.

But now Beau Ryan has repaid the favour, jetting to Los Angeles to meet up with the 42-year-old actor and wrestler, who’s doing press for Furious 7.

The pair were seen reuniting in a video posted to Instagram on Monday, but it appears Beau got a little too keen during their embrace, with The Rock stepping back and joking ‘you’ve got your arm on my ass.’

But that wasn’t the last joke made at The Footy Show presenter’s expense, as he uploaded his own video to Instagram that saw The Rock call him his ‘uce,’ Samoan for brother, before sighing ‘you need a shower dude.’

‘I’m gonna shower soon man, I’m getting a bit nervous around you,’ Beau, who’s filming a four part Beau Knows Hollywood series, joked.

Last time the pair met was last July, when the former Sharks player had The Rock call Alex McKinnon, who recently suffered a spinal injury, to help lift his spirits.

Last year the former WWE Champion spent several months in the Gold Coast filming San Andreas, a natural disaster flick that will hit cinemas in May.

On Saturday he’ll be hosting iconic sketch show Saturday Night Live for the fourth time, and recently hinted in an interview with Fox’s Chris Van Vliet that he could appear at WWE event WrestleMania 31 on Sunday
