    Courtesy of the IMDB -
    • Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) did all his own stunts.
    • During filming, Johnson knocked out co-star Michael Clarke Duncan. I wonder if the Li Vs. Snipes posters read this?! [​IMG]
    • This movie is a prequel of a sequel of a movie that was a re-make of another movie that was made 70 years ago. Huh? [​IMG]

    "I've come for the girl......and your head"
    I just can't see the appeal of casting a wrestler in a motion picture.
    I see it comes out in a few weeks, has anyone heard anything about the actual film yet? If it tanks then I'm guessing the Rock's acting career is going to be cut rather short, well his film acting anyway [​IMG]

    I was wondering the same thing "will this be Conan-like and in that way FUN, or is this just more Mummy Returns crap".
    For me one of the worst parts of Mummy Returns is that they turned Rock into a CGI monster. You take a guy cast for his fighting ability and outright on-screen charisma and hide it all behind CGI.
    Good thinking. [​IMG]
    So if SK lets Rock be Rock they might just have something. He can't be worse than early Arnie, and he did well enough for Conan to be a great film.

    I have to agree with Nick. Rock has no business carrying a feature film, even one that looks as wretched as this. He's just plain bad. He can fight onscreen, but when he opens his mouth, it's all over. I don't see this movie making any money, unless people get tricked into thinking it is a sequel to The Mummy, with the same cast. Looks like bomb city.

    If the Rock manages to remember that he's in The Scorpion King and NOT in "WWF in Egypt!" he'll be OK. After all, he does a pretty good job of assuming the persona of The Rock.

    I heard The Rock is already signed for another movie called The Bounty Hunter, a comedy/action movie like Midnight Run.
