Personal Quote:

Not many people realize this, but I'm a really squeamish guy. When I watch other horror films that are really over-the-top with their blood and guts, I cannot watch it. So if my threshold to something on-screen is at that level, you can imagine how my threshold is to all the pain and suffering that is happening in the real world. See more »

Trivia:

He is the second director in history to have two films that were not in the same franchise reach a billion dollars at the box office with Aquaman (2018) and Furious 7 (2015). The first director to achieve that feat was James Cameron with Titanic (1997) and Avatar (2009). See more »
