Enjoy a 3-day Eid Special from 24 to 26 May, featuring the best Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson movies. Two movies, back-to-back, starting at 20:00 KSA on OSN Movies.
Here's your #TBT
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is no stranger to Hollywood, the big screen, the small screen – in fact, it’s safe to assume that almost everyone knows this man. The Rock is THE highest paid actor in Hollywood at the moment (according to a report by Forbes for the year 2018-2019).
2018-2019 was a particularly successful year for this man, with Hobbs & Shaw, Skyscraper and Fighting with my Family all hitting the cinemas almost simultaneously. And that’s not all, Dwayne also starred in HBO’s Ballers, a weekly sports-comedy TV series and makes sporadic appearances on WWE Smackdown!
The Rock has featured in A LOT of movies since his debut, and is a phenomenal superstar today. But life wasn’t always this glamorous for the most electrifying man in sports entertainment! This Samoan superstar was born and raised in California, and started his career as a street performing wrestler. He was then spotted by WWE (WWF, then) and finally grew into the high-profile wrestlers we know and love today.
His move to Hollywood in 2001 (The Mummy Returns) was met with a lot of criticism and doubt; fast forward to 2020, and every single critic would eat their words now. Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has transformed into so much more than just a Hollywood actor, and everyone loves him for it. His sense of ‘Mana’ – meaning spirit – is embodied in all his movies and all his characters.
So this Eid, gather the family to watch some of the coolest Dwayne Johnson movies, exclusively on OSN. We have put together a playlist of the biggest blockbusters and some great classics featuring ‘The Rock’.
Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw
Man of law, Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) partners up with the enigmatic Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) in a buddy cop, action-packed movie that came right out of the Fast and Furious universe. Together, they must save the world from a genetically enhanced super soldier called Brixton (played by Idris Elba). If this star cast isn’t enough to convince you, then maybe the fast cars and over-the-top (in a good way), heart-pumping action sequences will!
An action-disaster movie from 2018 starring none other than the man of the moment, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. Set in China, our star man plays the character of Will Sawyer who is a security consultant for skyscrapers. When the safest building in the world is set ablaze, Will must prove his innocence and save his family from the towering inferno.
An action-comedy from 2017 – Baywatch embodies everything cool from the classic TV series with the same name. Dwayne Johnson stars with fellow lifeguards Zac Efron, Priyanka Chopra and Alexandra Daddario in the sunny shores of South Florida. When the lifeguard team, led by Mitch Buchannon (Dwayne Johnson) discovers highly illegal activity on their beach, it’s up to these lifeguards to save as many lives as they can and bring a criminal mastermind to justice.
Fighting With My Family
Based on the true story of WWE superstar Paige – Fighting with my Family is a sports-comedy film about a young Paige, who was born into a wrestling family. Her brother Zak and her get a once-in-a-lifetime chance to audition for WWE. Live her journey as she leaves her family behind to master an art loved by millions, and how she worked her way up to become the phenomenon she is today!
Race to Witch Mountain
An adventure movie coming from Disney, Dwayne Johnson plays the role of Jack – your average taxi driver, who finds himself caught up in numerous misadventures with 2 aliens who have taken the form of human children. Are aliens here to save us, or is something more sinister at play?
A sci-fi/horror flick from 2005, Doom is based on a video game with the same name. Dwayne Johnson plays Sarge, the leader of the Rapid Response Tactical Squad who are sent into a facility in Mars after an alleged security breach. Deep dive into the cinematic universe of mid-2000s sci-fi and action/horror with our hero for an action-packed that’s out of this world!
