Former WWE Superstar and current sexiest man alive Dwayne Johnson recently appeared in a pair of new trailers. Both clips celebrate his status as the top leading man in Hollywood and the king of ludicrous movies. Both trailers are wonderfully absurd vertical slices of (what should be) wonderfully preposterous movies. Check ’em out below.
Let’s start with the first trailer for The Fate of the Furious, the movie formerly known as Fast 8. Like the previous Fast and the Furious movies, this one appears to have crazy race scenes, impossible action, a dangerous amount of testosterone, enjoyably bad acting, and overuse of the word “family.” The Fate of the Furious ups the ante by cleverly using a tank, a submarine, and a gorgeous South African woman (Charlize Theron).
Many of you know that I’m a fan of this franchise and that Paul Walker was my favorite crappy actor of all time. To honor Walker’s memory and to support a WWE alumnus, I am morally obligated to watch The Fate of the Furious in theaters.
Dwayne Johnson’s ridiculousness hits the beach with Baywatch. The filmic version of the cheesy ’90s action show that featured buoyant bosoms, Johnson plays the straight man to Zac Efron’s rebel. Casting The Rock as a lifeguard that takes his duties way too seriously is perfect. The role will show off his body, action chops, and comedic timing. Like the TV show, Baywatch the movie will be full of ridiculously beautiful people saving the day in a ridiculous manner. It looks completely stupid, but America loves things that are completely stupid.
When you have a chance, kindly check out the trailers for The Fate of the Furious and Baywatch. After you’re done digesting these visual masterpieces, kindly share your thoughts in the comments section. Hopefully you all come to the logical conclusion that it’s Dwayne Johnson’s world and we’re just living in it.
