New Faster poster features The Rock and his giant arm as the star

Jul. 20, 2010by:

What, you think we hired him for his face? It's those biceps of course!

Yesterday, we got our first look at FASTER, the revenge flick that’s gotten The Rock back in action mode at long last. 100% of you were all for the trailer, mainly for that reason alone, as The Rock shooting guns and punching people is like 50% of the way to a good action movie already. What’s that about DOOM? Uhh I can’t hear you.

In all seriousness though, I think it might have been DOOM that scared The Rock away from action for awhile. When you look back at his film catalog, it’s the only non-comedy action movie he’s been in since 2005, and as much as that movie and his performance in it got torn apart pretty harshly. I think he just got sick of the whole genre.

But now his latest three projects are FASTER, FAST FIVE and PROTECTION, all straight-up action flicks. I guess a switch must have been flipped in his head after a five year hiatus, and I’m happy to welcome him back.

Check out the FASTER poster below, and click to see it in hi-res at the Pimpin’ Poster Palace

Hmmm

The Rock has potential, even at this point. I really hope he can put all these shitty family films behind him and do the kinds of movies he was meant for. Is Faster one of those movies?

So he made doom, which wasn't received well at all. And that scared him into children action/comedies where he made a string of shit movies? Here's hoping he gets it together.

Finally.....!

Cool poster. Nice to see The Rock back back in proper roles. And no, I won't call him Dwayne Johnson. I'm a wrestling fan, I know it's scripted, and I'll always call the most electrifying man in sports-entertainment as The Rock!

I think this movie will be very good and I will be going to see it. And I don't think The Rock came to his senses ( he had them all along ), I think it's cause his contract with the evil disney has finally ended. Tidbit: I could only do corporate eyebrow, the peoples eyebrow was way to difficult.

I honestly thought this news was gonna be about Faster & Furiouser or something like that. The tagline is hilarious but this movie might still be fun.

HMMMM

The poster needs to have the Rock! It's time that action films are promoted like action films and not art house,teaser fare. The trailer also looked very empty, but am pumped to see the Rock in action mode.

eesh!

That has to be one of the lamest movie taglines/posters I've seen in a while. Talk about a letdown after seeing the wickedly awesome trailer.
