The Rock returns to his badass roots in first Faster teaser trailer

Jul. 19, 2010by:

It seems The Rock has finally listened to the entire world yelling at him to stop making awful kids movies and get back in the action game. We have very few true action heroes left these days (you can find the remnants of them in THE EXPENDABLES), and The Rock is blowing his chance to be a icon with crap like TOOTH FAIRY and RACE TO WITCH MOUNTAIN.

Hopefully FASTER will be a return to form for him. The plot seems simple enough, an ex-con just out of jail sets out for revenge on those responsible for his brother's death. This short teaser trailer gives us a taste of that rampage, but sadly skimps on the fact that Maggie Grace, Moon Bloodgood and Carla Gugino are all also in this film. Looks like a great start to me, but I want to see more.

Check it out below, and head over to Yahoo! for HD.

Extra Tidbit: Sorry Dwayne, but I will be calling you The Rock forever.

I'd like to know what percentage of ex-cons have a completely restored Super Sport waiting for them to aid in their revenge..it's gotta be low, like "only in Hollywood" low.

Uhh dude? What do you think happens to your cars when you go to Jail? They don't take them unless you went to jail for GTA. So the dude had an SS before he went to jail and when he gets out he still would have it...

The trailer seems to indicate a kinda Michael Bay-ish feel to the movie. Is that good or bad?

Awwww yeah!

It's about effin time! We've missed you man! Come back to us! I'm really hoping this film delivers like that trailer did. I really think his films could be pullin in a 100 mill+ if he went back to the action roots and became the action guy people want.
I just would really like to point out that the man needs a big solo summer vehicle sometime. None of the films that he's headlined as the main player have been released in prime movie season as walking tall, scorpion king and the rundown(the

None of the films that he's headlined as the main player have been released in prime movie season as walking tall, scorpion king and the rundown(the best!) were released in march, April and September. Please for the love of all that is good give this actor more prime release date real estate!

I'm so glad to see hollywood making a comeback

I always liked The Rock's action films, me and my big bro went to go see walking tall and we plus the people in the theater liked it alot. I also love that song by The Who. Am I the only one who thought of clint eastwood when watching The Rock at the end of the trailer.

wait...

...so The Rock is in both, a movie called Faster, and Fast Five (the FatF sequel)?...

that seems confusing and an interesting career choice.

anyway, this looks pretty good.

Quick, Beer-run

Faster premieres supposedly November 24, the day before Thanksgiving. So, a family could watch the Rock uphold family values Wednesday. Watch football Thursday while pigging-out. Then, see Eastwood's Hereafter Friday. A new Red Dawn woulda been freakin' sweet. But, just re-watch the old one--also about family values--and have a High Life.
BTW, Pats, Saints, Bengals all win on the road Thursday. Place your bets.

Pretty cool.

I liked everything about this trailer, except the title. Brings back Vietnam-esque flashbacks of "The Fast and The Furious" franchise.
