I'm going to post that new "Wrath Of The Titans" trailer in a few, but it's interesting that this would show up on the same day that Variety breaks the news that Dwayne Johnson is going to star in "Big Duh: The Motion Picture." Wait… sorry… it's "Hercules." That's what he's starring in. That's what he was genetically created to do, truth be told, so it's good that MGM and Brett Ratner are figuring his deal out.
That's a great break for Ratner, and I think he's going to probably be a good collaborator for Johnson, whose "Team Bring It" attitude travels from set to set with him. I've seen him work on what must be four or five films in a row now, and he sets a certain energy that everyone else keys in on. Dwayne Johnson is a major asset to a franchise if the franchise has any juice at all. He is a big part of what went right with "Fast Five," and he's absolutely at the heart of the "G.I. Joe" reboot.
Even "Journey 2" gets what little mileage it gets out of him, because he's always working when he's in a scene, always trying to find something to make it work. He's as dedicated to the little stuff as he is to the big stunt work. He's an old-fashioned movie star who understands his own image, and he's been very canny so far about how he's played with his iconography.
