Paul Walker: Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson remembers his friend and costar

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson shared the screen with Paul Walker on 2011’s Fast Five and 2013’s Fast & Furious 6. In honor of Walker, who passed away Nov. 30, Johnson called EW to reflect on his friend and costar.

Entertainment Weekly: It seems like Paul didn’t relish the media spotlight, so we don’t actually know all that much about him off-screen. What would you like people to know?
Dwayne Johnson: That was one of the interesting things about Paul: his reservations about being in the spotlight and being a star, whatever the definition of that may be.  READ FULL STORY

Director James Wan talks 'The Conjuring' and 'Insidious 2' and confirms we'll be seeing more of [spoiler] in 'Fast & Furious 7'

Director James Wan is currently publicizing his upcoming paranormal horror movie The Conjuring (out July 19) as well as his other paranormal horror movie Insidious: Chapter 2 (out September 13) and he’s currently prepping the seventh entry in the Fast & Furious franchise. So, how much sleep is getting at the moment? “Seriously? Not a lot,” says Wan. “I will be lucky if I’m averaging five hours each night.” Actually, that doesn’t sound so bad. “No, it’s not too bad, except I’m one of these people that need at least eight hours. I’m always very groggy first thing in the morning.”

Did you know The Rock has had a top ten movie for 15 straight weekends?

How’s your year going? Probably not as well as the Rock’s.

The wrestling star (and host of TNT’s The Hero, which premieres tomorrow night) is in the midst of an amazing box-office streak. He’s starred in four movies so far in 2013 — Snitch (Feb. 22), G.I. Joe: Retaliation (March 28), Pain and Gain (April 26), and Fast & Furious 6 (May 24) — and while they haven’t all been massive hits, three of them opened at No. 1. All together they’ve grossed over $937 million worldwide, giving the Rock (a.k.a. Dwayne Johnson) some major box-office bragging rights.

“As you know, I’ve been around for some time now,” Johnson told EW recently. “This is my 12th and 13th year in the business. Building an empire was the goal.” And built an empire he has!

In fact, for the past 15 weekends — yes, since Feb. 22 — the Rock has had at least one movie in the Top 10 at the U.S. box office. And considering audiences’ enduring love of the Fast franchise, he’s got a few more weekends left before that streak ends, too. Here’s how it’s all worked out: READ FULL STORY

Michael Bay's 'Pain & Gain' trailer shows off Hulk-like Mark Wahlberg, The Rock, strippers, guns -- VIDEO

To say the first trailer for Michael Bay’s bodybuilders-gone-bad action comedy, Pain & Gain, starring Hulk-sized Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, is over-the-top is an understatement. It EMBODIES over-the-top.

Muscles galore, strippers, guns, Rebel Wilson making saucy reference to certain male anatomy. Check out the trailer, below, which debuted Wednesday on Bay’s website. Wahlberg shouts out “I’m hot! I’m big!!!” while working out, before jumping muscle-bound head first into a world of extortion, kidnapping and crime with Johnson.

'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' trailer: The sequel is back, now with 20% more Channing Tatum

G.I. Joe: Retaliation was famously slated to hit theaters in June, a release date that would have made it the fifth movie starring emergent superstar Channing Tatum. Just one problem: as the early trailers for Retaliation implied, Tatum wasn’t in the movie very much. That, along with the apparent thirst for some of that sweet 3-D cash, led Paramount to push the toy-soldier sequel into 2013. A new trailer for the movie has just arrived, and curiously, it’s not all that different from the Retaliation trailer that appeared almost exactly a year ago. It does feature a new scene with Channing Tatum, a joke about North Korea, and notably less dubstep. So it’s got that going for it. Which is nice. Watch the new trailer: READ FULL STORY

New 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' trailer: Everything you'd seen before, but kinda different! -- VIDEO

The newest trailer for G.I. Joe: Retaliation isn’t all that much different from the previous trailers. We still get a brief glimpse of Channing Tatum before he seems to be blown to smithereens. We still witness a winky Bruce Wills as the original G.I. Joe cracking wise about his cholesterol. We still see the city of London go kablooey. And we still have the the pleasure of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson showcasing his terrifying-yet-transfixing biceps. But since the movie was abruptly bumped from its summer 2012 release to March 29, 2013 for a conversion to 3-D, a reshuffled refresher of why you were jazzed to see the film in the first place is in order. Check it out below:  READ FULL STORY

CinemaCon 2012: London gets bad news in 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' -- NEW TRAILER

TheRock-GIJoe

In England during the 1980s, the American armed-forces cartoon G.I. Joe was renamed Action Force, to help internationalize the characters.

Based on what happens to London in the new trailer for the sequel, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, they won’t be calling it anything there anymore. After the first movie, 2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, pulverized Paris and toppled the Eiffel Tower, the second film in the series turns the U.K.’s capital into the world’s biggest bowl of mushy peas, courtesy of a giant space weapon being controlled by a ruthless terrorist organization.
