Red One: Dwayne Johnson posts behind-the-scenes pictures of his Christmas-themed action movie

Christmas-themed properties are lucrative. It has been a long-running joke that crooner Michael Bublé only surfaces during the holidays when his Christmas songs make regular rotations, and Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas has found recent infamous popularity. Enough to have the pop diva declare herself “Queen of Christmas.” Recently, with films like Violent Night and The Mean One, crossing Christmas with violence and action looks to turn traditional classics on its side. One such film audiences have to look forward to for the next holiday season is the Dwayne Johnson and Chris Evans yule-tide action film Red One. Johnson, ever the serial promoter, has recently posted pictures via his Twitter of some behind-the-scenes photos, which feature a scene of him riding a large vehicle and running down a platform before the environment has been added. In his tweet, the Black Adam star describes the film as JUMANJI meets MIRACLE ON 34TH ST meets HOBBS & SHAW with a dash of HARRY POTTER & ITS A WONDERFUL LIFE.”

Joining Johnson and Evans in the cast will be J.K. Simmons, Bonnie Hunt, Kiernan Shipka, Lucy Liu, Kristofer Hivju, Nick Kroll, Mary Elizabeth Ellis, and Wesley Kimmel. The movie is written by Chris Morgan, who also penned Johnson’s Hobbs & Shaw, from a story based on Johnson’s producing partner, Hiram Garcia. The film will be directed by Jake Kasdan, who helmed the two recent Jumanji movies, Welcome to the Jungle and The Next Level.

Red One is set to premiere on Amazon Prime during the holiday season in 2023.
