18 July 2016 12:05 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The DC Comics universe is about to add a double-dose of funny next spring with the arrival of NBC's Powerless! Earlier today, star Vanessa Hudgens (Grease: Live), who portrays the lead Emily Locke, released the show's official Comic-Con poster featuring her alongside her core cast, consisting of Danny Pudi (Community), Alan Tudyk (Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story), Christina Kirk (A to Z), and the newly added Ron Funches (Undateable). Speaking of Funches, Entertainment Weekly has learned that he's joined the main cast as Ron, an It guy who works with Emily at RetCon Insurance Co.

Central Intelligence review – amiable odd-couple caper

30 June 2016 2:45 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A by-the-numbers plot doesn’t stop the central duo of Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart from hitting all the right notes in this good-humoured action comedy

Some films get very lucky with topical gags hitting the mark more effectively than the writers could have realised. The one about Taylor Swift here got a very big laugh when I saw it. This is a likable odd-couple action comedy from director and co-writer Rawson Marshall Thurber, who gave us Dodgeball. I suspect he has been influenced by Ivan Reitman’s Twins from 1988, with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito. (I even wondered if he had seen Dominik Moll’s black-comic classic Harry, Un Ami Qui Vous Veut Du Bien, from 2000.) It starts with that sine qua non of the modern studio comedy: the “anti-nostalgia prelude” sequence set in high school when the protagonists were hilariously naff. It’s wish fulfilment for comedy writers, »

Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart look to strike comedy gold in Central Intelligence. Spoiler: they don't.

Personally, I’m amazed that Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson have time to sneeze, yet alone fit in a movie together, such is the prolific workrate of the pair of them. Two of the most industrious actors in Hollywood have thus now come together for an R-rated comedy from Dodgeball and We’re The Millers director Rawson Marshall Thurber. They;re popping off to remake Jumanji next.

The conceit of this one though owes just a little to the Arnold Schwarzenegger comedies of the late 80s and 90s, in that it’s Johnson who’s playing against type. We first meet his and Hart’s character in their high school days, with Hart the popular, loved by everybody Calvin Joyner, and Johnson the overweight, bullied kid. Fast forward 20 years, and Calvin »

Review: Dwayne Johnson gets weird in surprisingly enjoyable 'Central Intelligence'

17 June 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Buddy comedies are a Hollywood staple at this point, and they’re fairly easy to execute at a baseline level of competence. Sometimes it’s a script that distinguishes one, sometimes it’s the easy chemistry between the stars, and sometimes it’s a director who elevates things. In the case of Central Intelligence, several things work better than I would have suspected, and as a result, I genuinely enjoyed the movie. Color me shocked. First and foremost, The Rock has become one of the most reliable brands in modern movies, and, yes, I am aware that I just called him a brand. I think he’s more than “just” a movie star. He’s an overall force of personality that exists to just shine positivity and humor and good energy into the world via movies, TV, wrestling, and social media. If The Rock didn’t exist, we’d have to invent him. »

Central Intelligence – The Review

16 June 2016 4:50 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The pairing of Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson creates nice chemistry in Central Intelligence. It’s too bad that they’re adrift in a lackluster buddy comedy that starts out well but is a distinct let-down for those expecting more.

Central Intelligence opens with a High School prologue set in 1996 with Johnson as Bob Weirdick, a bullied fat kid dragged out of the shower and thrown onto the gym floor during an assembly. Class president Calvin “The Golden Jet” Joyner (Hart) takes pity and hands Bob his letter jacket to cover his nakedness. Jump to 20 years later and Bob (who has changed his last name to Stone) is now a muscular CIA agent returning home for his high school reunion. He connects with Calvin, now a married but childless accountant, on Facebook and recruits him to hack into some security codes. Calvin soon finds himself in the middle of a wacky world of espionage, »

Review: Rawson Thurber's 'Central Intelligence' is Seriously Funny

16 June 2016 10:03 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Dwayne Johnson (formerly known as wrestler "The Rock") has solidified himself as a global box-office powerhouse, with numerous box office hits over these last few years. In 2001, he starred in The Mummy Returns, which grossed more than $400 million worldwide. Universal Pictures immediately planned a spin-off based on his character, The Scorpion King, which broke a few box office records in 2002. Since then, Johnson has starred in dozens of movies, including the enormously successful Fast and the Furious franchise, San Andreas, Pain & Gain, and Hercules. With this year's buddy comedy Central Intelligence, however, Johnson has found the perfect vehicle to flex his comedic muscles, as well as his ass-kicking ones. Directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (of We're the Millers, Dodgeball previously), Central Intelligence stars Johnson as Robbie Weirdicht, an uncool kid who grows up to be a badass CIA operative. We are introduced to "Fat Robbie" in a flashback where, after »

‘Central Intelligence’ Review: Dwayne Johnson Wrestles Some Big Laughs From A Weak Buddy Comedy

16 June 2016 8:53 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Nearly (but not quite) redeemed by its good nature and the megaton charisma of its two stars, “Central Intelligence” is a dopey blockbuster diversion that will surely keep United Airlines passengers entertained during the dog days of summer. Directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (“Dodgeball,” “We’re the Millers”) and shot with the safety on at all times, this unambitious buddy comedy has all the biting wit and visual flair of a movie that already seems resigned to its final resting place on the tiny airplane screens where it will be interred. And yet, “Central Intelligence” knows something that audiences will be delighted to learn — or, more likely, rediscover — for themselves: Dwayne Johnson is a fucking national treasure.

Our story, eerily similar to that of Adam Sandler’s recent Netflix disaster, “The Do-Over,” begins all the way back in a magical time known as 1996. An obese teenager named Robbie Weirdicht (Johnson, his face plastered on to the body of an obese teenager as the result of the sophisticated uglification technology that allowed Brad Pitt to be an elderly dwarf in “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”), stands alone in his high school’s locker room showers, butt-naked and belting out his very own version of En Vogue’s 1992 pop masterpiece, “My Lovin’ (You’re Never Gonna Get It),” which was definitely picked for its cultural specificity and extraordinary comedic value and not because it was the first thing that Thurber received clearance to use.

Meanwhile, in the packed gymnasium outside the locker room, prom king Calvin Joyner (Kevin Hart) is enjoying the last of his glory days at the head of a pep rally for the graduating class. Alas, his “follow your dreams” speech interrupted by a pack of sniveling bullies who heave Robbie’s naked body onto the hardwood basketball court floor for the entire school to see. Sure, that’s probably a serious criminal misdemeanor in the eyes of “the law” or whatever, but boys will be boys. Calvin, a mensch to the core, rushes to help cover him up.

Cut to 20 years later: Calvin is a mid-level accountant who’s disappointed with his life, while Robbie — now going by the name Bob Stone — has evolved into a rippling half-Samoan demi-god who’s strong enough to carry an entire movie on his back. And yet, despite undergoing the most ridiculous physical transformation this side of Captain America, Bob is still a total doofus. Reuniting with Calvin at a local bar on the eve of their class reunion, Bob shows up rocking a fanny pack and a skin-tight t-shirt with a unicorn emblazoned across the chest. Viewers familiar with “Pain & Gain” know that Johnson is at his best (and most infectiously self-amused) when playing against type, and he seems to be having the time of his life as he belittles his co-star into playing the straight man.

Of course, there’s more to this story — the artist formerly known as “The Rock” wouldn’t just be a run-of-the-mill dweeb. We’re talking about Hercules. We’re talking about the Scorpion King. We’re talking about a guy who fought an earthquake in last summer’s “San Andreas,” and made that motherfucker apologize for every inch of its fault line. In other words, Calvin is the only one who’s even the least bit surprised when it turns out that Bob is a rogue, possibly psychotic C.I.A. agent who’s on the run from his boss (a thankless Amy Ryan) with a MacGuffin. “You’re Jason Bourne in jorts!,” yelps Hart, in one of his few memorable lines.

Calvin is the only guy Bob trusts (the movie is sweet like that), and the two get wrapped up in an explosively stupid adventure that — thanks to a tight $50 million budget and the fact that Thurber directs with all the visual panache of a McDonald’s commercial — often feels less like Jason Bourne than it does Agent Cody Banks. Fortunately, Thurber seems to have embraced his various limitations, and “Central Intelligence” doesn’t strain towards being a full-throated action-comedy. In fact, its few shootouts and car crashes are so half-assed that the movie occasionally feels like a deliberate throwback to the middle-brow studio fare of the ’80s and ’90s, which feels somewhat appropriate given that Hard and Johnson’s archetype-based chemistry is pretty much just “Twins” all over again.

The laughs are often just as limp, particularly because Hart doesn’t appear to be super comfortable with the idea that he’s there to tee-up jokes for his co-star. In the “Ride Along” movies, he and Ice Cube were a united front of unfunniness; here, Hart is just nipping at Johnson’s heels. Calvin’s default mode is “scared shitless,” and while the character serves a necessary function, he could pretty much be played by anyone (brilliant cameos from the likes of Jason Bateman and Kumail Nanjiani further emphasize how few of the one-liners land when Hart is left to deliver them).

Perhaps the problem is that Hart no longer needs to be anyone’s foil — he’s excellently empathetic in the more dramatic moments when he’s struggling to become the hero of his own story, and the film leaves us with reason to believe that Johnson isn’t the only one who should continue to subvert his image. And Johnson, good as he is, should only go further around the bend from here. For all the fun he’s having, he’s only truly electric in the moments when Thurber entertains the possibility that Bob might be a delusional psychopath who’s just flown over the cuckoo’s nest.

With a tepid studio offering like this, in which themes include such bold ideas as “bullies are bad,” “guns are fun,” and “all those haters from high school would worship you if you weren’t so fat,” there’s no hope that Johnson might dive off the deep end and create something special. And yet, between “Central Intelligence” and “Pain & Gain,” there’s reason to believe that he’ll get there, one day — it’s still too soon to smell what the Rock is cooking, but you can feel him firing up the grill.

Grade: C+

Central Intelligence” opens in theaters on Friday.

Win Passes To The Advance Screening Of Central Intelligence In St. Louis

7 June 2016 8:40 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart star in the action comedy Central Intelligence, for New Line Cinema and Universal Pictures.

The story follows a one-time bullied geek, Bob (Johnson), who grew up to be a lethal CIA agent, coming home for his high school reunion. Claiming to be on a top-secret case, Bob enlists the help of former “big man on campus,” Calvin (Hart), now an accountant who misses his glory days. But before the staid numbers-cruncher realizes what he’s getting into, it’s too late to get out, as his increasingly unpredictable new friend drags him through a world of shoot-outs, double-crosses and espionage that could get them both killed in more ways than Calvin can count.

Central Intelligence also stars Oscar nominee Amy Ryan (“Gone Baby Gone”), Aaron Paul (TV’s “Breaking Bad”), and Danielle Nicolet (TV’s “The Game”).

Press Conference: Talking with the Cast & Crew of 'Central Intelligence'

7 June 2016 5:49 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The upcoming comedy Central Intelligence, starring Kevin Hart and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, focuses on two friends who reconnect on the eve of their 20th high school reunion, and how much things have changed for them since their teenage years.

At a press conference we had an opportunity to speak to the movies two stars, as well as the director Rawson Marshall Thurber (“Dodgeball,” “We’re The Millers”) and screenwriters Ike Barinholtz (“The Mindy Project”) and David Stassen.  The project, we were told, was born when the screenwriters saw on Facebook a photo of a former classmate with a machine gun, and joked about how funny it would be if the guy had turned into Jason Bourne.

Legendary Wins Bidding War for Dwayne Johnson’s ‘Skyscraper’

26 May 2016 6:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Legendary has won a bidding war for rights to the China-set action movie “Skyscraper” with Dwayne Johnson attached to star.

Rawson Marshall Thurber is directing from his own script. Beau Flynn is producing through his FlynnPictureCo. with Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions. Thurber will also produce.

Universal, Sony and Paramount also made bids for the project, which takes place in a massive skyscraper in China, with Legendary paying about $3 million. Details of the logline are being kept under wraps.

Universal will handle distribution of “Skyscraper” worldwide. Legendary was acquired four months ago by Chinese conglomerate Dalian Wanda for $3.5 billion.

Johnson and Flynn teamed on New Line’s “San Andreas,” which grossed more than $470 million worldwide, and on the two “Journey to the Center of the Earth” films.

Johnson will be seen next month with Kevin Hart in action-comedy “Central Intelligence,” which Thurber directed for New Line. Johnson recently wrapped shooting on “Baywatch” for Paramount. »

Dwayne Johnson To Reteam With Central Intelligence Director For “Die Hard In China”

26 May 2016 10:03 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Central Intelligence may still be waiting in the wings ahead of its deployment on June 17, but Deadline is reporting today that Dwayne Johnson is keen to reteam with the movie’s director Rawson Marshall Thurber for an actioner pitched as “Die Hard in China.”

Written and directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber – whose credits include Dodgeball and We’re The Millers – Deadline notes that the hot project has already sparked a bidding war between leading studios, with a handful of seven-figure deals already being tabled from Legendary, Universal, Sony and Paramount.

That’s hardly surprising, of course; buoyed by a roster of compelling supporting roles before firing San Andreas to box office glory at New Line, Dwayne Johnson is fast becoming one of the most bankable stars in all of Hollywood and clearly, Hollywood’s suits are standing up and taking notice. You don’t get the nickname “franchise viagra” for nothing, »

Central Intelligence Clip And TV Spot Champion Dwayne Johnson And Kevin Hart As The CIA’s Power Couple

23 May 2016 11:55 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Move over Riggs and Murtaugh; there’s a new power couple in town, and they’re gunning for the buddy cop crown. That’s Kevin Hart and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who will soon be headlining Rawson Marshall Thurber’s larger-than-life action comedy, Central Intelligence.

As the creative mind behind both Dodgeball and We’re The Millers, moviegoers ought to have a good sense of where Marshall Thurber’s latest venture places on the comedy spectrum, and a new TV spot and clip for Central Intelligence today drive home the point that, yes, this is a movie that revels in the ridiculous.

Placing Dwayne Johnson in the role of chubby-geek-turned-lethal-cia-agent Bob Stone, the upcoming summer comedy plays to each actor’s bankable strengths, particularly when it comes to Kevin Hart channeling the same frenetic energy that fired Ride Along 2 to a relatively healthy box office earlier in the year. »

STX Partners with Ben Stiller for ‘Alex Strangelove’ Comedy

9 May 2016 1:49 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

STX Entertainment is developing teen comedy “Alex Strangelove” with Craig Johnson (“The Skeleton Twins”) and is in advanced talks with Ben Stiller’s Red Hour Films to produce.

Johnson is directing from his own script about high school senior Alex Strangelove, whose quest to lose his virginity — eagerly awaited by his patient girlfriend, cheered on by his rowdy friends — launches him into an exploration of modern manhood.

In addition to Red Hour, STX is also in talks on “Alex Strangelove” with producers Nicky Weinstock and Jared Goldman.

Red Hour, which is operated by Stiller and Stuart Cornfeld, announced in November that it was  partnering with Bold Films to produce a slate of new movie, TV and digital projects. It also announced that Weinstock was joining Red Hour at that point.

Dwayne Johnson And Kevin Hart Cause Chaos In New Central Intelligence Trailer

16 March 2016 9:51 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Saving the world takes a little Hart and a big Johnson – a little Kevin Hart and a big Dwayne Johnson, that is. For in Warner Bros.’ summer actioner Central Intelligence, both actors will star as two sides of the same buddy cop duo, to hilarious effect.

Hot on the heels of the relatively successful Ride Along 2 – financially, at least – Hart is one of the biggest names in comedy at the moment, while Johnson simply oozes personality as Bob Stone, the big, friendly giant who was once ridiculed and bullied in college for being the fat kid. In fact, whereas the film’s debut snippet saved the money shot of a pudgy, CG Dwayne Johnson singing in the shower, today’s trailer leads with it.

In those intervening years, Fat Robbie has transformed into a trained CIA killer, but a new mission requires him to reunite with Hart’s high school jock and old friend. »

Dwayne Johnson’s CIA Agent Recruits Kevin Hart in ‘Central Intelligence’ Trailer

16 March 2016 9:21 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Dwayne Johnson receives plenty of redemption in the new “Central Intelligence” trailer, which opens with a scene of massive high-school humiliation for his naked, overweight character at a school assembly.

“There’s no coming back from that,” the principal declares in the New Line trailer for the action-comedy.

The trailer cuts forward two decades as buff CIA agent Johnson — “I worked out six hours a day for 20 years” — recruits his only friend from high school (Kevin Hart) to help him save the world. Hart is the one-time coolest guy in school who has become an accountant.

“Saving the world takes a little Hart and a big Johnson,” the trailer declares as it dishes out a variety of car crashes, gunfights and banter between the stars.

Scott Stuber, Peter Principato and Paul Young are producing. “Central Intelligence” is directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber, who was behind “Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story” and “We’re the Millers. »
