The classics of this genre featured danger and destruction on a scale a guy could wrap his head around; a hijacked airplane, a skyscraper on fire, a capsized ocean liner filling with water. But when you live by spectacle, you die by it too. And so the disasters got bigger and bigger, one movie trying to top the next, until it became an arms race of planetary devastation. One movie blows up the White House, the next one washes it away in a tidal wave. Where do you go from there? An exploding tidal wave? At this point, if your disaster movie isn’t eradicating a large portion of the globe, don’t even waste your time.
This is a weird instance of art imitating life imitating art. Universal Studios Orlando’s famous old ‘Earthquake’ ride was recently updated and replaced with a similar attraction called ‘Disaster!’ where guests get to experience movie special effects, and become extras in the “ultimate” disaster movie called ‘Mutha Nature,’ which stars none other than Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. Next summer, Johnson will be seen in ‘San Andreas,’ which is basically ‘Mutha Nature’ brought to life.
Of all the TV shows to be turned into movies, 'The Fall Guy' actually makes sense to translate to the big screen, so color us excited that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is in talks to star in a big screen reboot with McG eyed to direct.
The brand-new 'Snitch' trailer, set to debut during the 2013 Super Bowl this Sunday, has come early. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson stars in this upcoming action flick as a father willing to put his life on the line to clear his son's name, and now you can check out an early look at the new footage.
