Turns out that Omega Red was hidden among some of the mutants in the mutant prison, the Icebox, and he was played by NFL rookie Dakoda Shepley of the New York Jets. Today we have a first look of the character to share with you thanks to the film's makeup designer Bill Corso. It sounds like we'll actually get a chance to see Omega Red in the upcoming "Super Duper Cut" of the film that will screen at Comic-Con next week. Corso says:
“To celebrate the Comic-Con showing of our special, Mega Fan only, ‘Deadpool 2: the Unrated Cut’, I’ve decided to show the, blink and you’ll miss them, Mutant Villains of the Ice Box Prison,” Corso wrote.
On Monday, Katy Sullivan — a bilateral above knee amputee and four-time Paralympic Games champion who has appeared as an actress on shows like NCIS: New Orleans and My Name Is Earl — wrote an open letter to Johnson published by Deadline, asking the 46-year-old action star to “stop saying ‘Yes’ to roles” that involve putting on “the mask of disability.”
“Individuals with disabilities make up almost 20 percent of the world’s population,” she wrote in her piece,

On Sunday’s pay-per-view event, the “Monster Among Men” tossed K.O. off of the top of a steel cage and through an announcers’ table some 20 feet below. It didn’t look like an easy bump to those of us watching at home on subscriber video on demand (Svod) service WWE Network — or, we imagine, for anyone in attendance at the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, arena.

And here is a second angle of tonight’s insanity:
With a $120 million budget before marketing costs, Universal and Legendary face an uphill battle toward profitability for this action film. (“Rampage” had the same reported budget and topped out under $100 million domestically — though it grossed an impressive $327 million overseas.”)
While audiences who did see “Skyscraper” were fairly positive with a B+ on CinemaScore, that’s below the A given to previous Johnson films like “Rampage” and “San Andreas,” meaning word-of-mouth is weaker.
What led to this disappointing result for Hollywood’s biggest box office star? There are several factors…
“This is a thrill ride — you bought your ticket and here it is,” Thurber told TheWrap. “We didn’t consult with math professors to make sure it made sense, but we did the math with Ilm [Industrial Light & Magic] and we knew we were close. People aren’t buying tickets to see a documentary about a guy jumping a big jump. With any action sequence, you want it to feel believable — but 10 percent more. You want it to be improbable, but not impossible. You want it to feel insane, but not unachievable.”
In the movie, Johnson tries to get into a building that is engulfed in flames in order to save his family. The only way in is to jump from a crane into the burning building,
While critics have been muted in their reviews of “HT3” (which currently has a tepid 59 percent on Rotten Tomatoes), family audiences have given it characteristically strong praise with an A- on CinemaScore. Sony has kept the budget for the film relatively low compared to their Disney/Pixar rivals with an $80 million price tag, as the film looks early on as though it will match the $150 million domestic run of its two predecessors.

Modern Toss on The Rock
On 24 June , Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson posted the following to his 109 million Instagram followers: “Starting off my Sat by reviewing new TV spots for Skyscraper. Note pad and pen at the ready and diggin’ in to my pre-workout breakfast of egg whites and flank steak aka dead cow. Bowl of cream of wheat mixed with pineapple and papaya.
Whether that happens in two, six, or 10 years, the wrestler-turned-actor-turned-maybe-politician will have built up an impressive body of work that rewards revisiting. Here are his best lead performances:

Perhaps the most ridiculous movie Johnson has ever been in — and he was in “Doom” — this automotive revenge thriller finds its star at his most self-serious. It’s a virtually silent performance from the Rock, who has as much physical charisma as anyone on

A father goes to great lengths to save his family from a burning skyscraper.
“This is stupid” – Dwayne Johnson’s hostage rescuer turned one-legged towering building inspector mutters to himself as he is about to rappel down the titular skyscraper. Yes folks, writer and director Rawson Marshall Thurber’s Skyscraper is self-aware; it’s loud, bursting with CGI, chaotic, dumb fun that seems to know exactly what to do with The Rock.
Skyscraper is the 80s/90s throwback action vehicle I, and assumedly many others, always felt the worldwide icon was suited for, yet for whatever reason never fully happened until now. He’s done everything from a string of Disney children flicks to more laid-back comedic affairs

Dwayne Johnson has been promoting his latest movie Skyscraper, which is one of few original blockbusters hitting theaters this summer. During a recent interview, he was asked about possibly running against President Trump in 2020. Even though he ruled it out, one has to respect his reasoning as he appears to be taking the idea very seriously and doesn't want to do it unless he's absolutely prepared.
"Unfortunately I don't see it happening in 2020. It's a position that requires years of hard work and experience to learn the skills. There's a lot of ground to cover,
EW premiered a sneak peek at an upcoming episode of the digital series Off Script by Grey Goose, in which the 46-year-old actor talks about temporarily dropping his well-known WWE stage name, “The Rock,” more than a decade ago.
“I was tired of trying to be something I wasn’t,” he tells Jamie Foxx. “I was told at that time, ‘Listen, you can’t talk about wrestling. You can’t go by ‘The Rock.’ You can’t be as big [physically].”
However, giving up
The film opens showing the hostage situation that cost Sawyer his leg while working as an FBI agent. Ten years later, he has married Sarah (Neve Campbell), the medic who treated him and has taken a job in Hong Kong as head of security at the tallest building in the world. But when the building is attacked and Will is framed for it, he must save his family before it’s too late. Reviews for the film have been mixed, with Rotten Tomatoes setting the score at 58 percent.

“I was tired of trying to be something I wasn’t,” Johnson told Jamie Foxx on an upcoming episode of digital series “Off Script.” “I was told at that time, ‘Listen, you can’t talk about wrestling. You can’t go by ‘The Rock.’ You can’t be as big (physically).'”
That advice came up just before the release of the 2005 movie “Southland Tales.” The name change didn’t feel right, and it didn’t last long.
