Warner Bros initially offered me just eight minutes with The Rock ahead of the release of the succinctly, supertextually-named Rampage. This was cut to four on the day, and then three, another journalist savoring but two-and-a-half-minutes of … [Read more...] about Literally just 3 minutes with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, the biggest movie star on the planet
