Everyone Was Sure Dwayne Johanson’s Hobbs & Shaw Co-Star’s Sequel Will Flop, It’s Already at $187M Profit

Dwayne Johnson has led a successful career both in Wrestling and acting. Johnson is a multitalented star who has proven his cinematic genius and has established himself as an irresistible and impactful leading man in the movie business. The 51-year-old actor has worked in several big-budgeted, action-packed, mind-bending long-running franchise projects.

The actor has been ruling the screen since beginning his film career with the 2001 adventure horror flick The Mummy Returns. He continues to flourish in his art and craft to date. The actor has worked with enough A-listers in the entertainment industry, including Jason Statham.

The duo shared the silver screen in The Fast & Furious franchise film series and delivered powerhouse performances. Statham is making headlines for his recently released Meg 2: The Trench film, a sequel to 2018’s The Meg. The film has received mixed reviews but has done exceptionally well at the box office.

Jason Statham is an actor par excellence who has starred in dozens of fascinating movies and is best known for his work in action genre films. Statham often stunned the audience with his sultry physique and inescapable on-screen presence. The actor never shied away from doing significant physical transformations and performing deadly stunts in his films, staying on top of his acting A-game to date.

The 56-year-old actor has been making waves in the industry, as his newly released Ben Wheatley-directed sci-fi action film Meg 2: The Trench has earned surprising figures at the box office. The movie is a sequel to his 2018 flick, The Meg, in which the actor played the role of Jonas Taylor, a rescue diver. Nevertheless, many who watched the original movie are disappointed with its latest sequel, and it has only received 28% ratings on Rotten Tomatoes, with critics pointing out its weak screenplay.

One critic wrote on the site:
“Meg 2 promises to deliver over-the-top thrills, but this sequel is as lifeless as its characters, and the payoff at the end is not worth the egregiously long buildup.”
Despite the initial predictions about its failure, the film has done decent business at the box office, though it has earned an underwhelming response from the critics and audience alike. However, Jason Statham’s fans are thrilled to watch him on the silver screen performing nail-biting stunts.

Read some fans’ reactions down below.

While the original movie did fantastic business at the box office, grossing $530 million, its latest sequel Meg 2: The Trench, has amassed $316 million against the production budget of 129 million.

Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson have starred together in The Fast & Furious franchise projects. In the film series, Johnson played the character of Luke Hobbs: A former DSS agent, while Statham played Deckard Shaw. They reprised their roles for the first spin-off film in the Fast & Furious franchise: Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.

 

 

The Bank Job movie star has gushed about working with Dwayne Johnson on multiple occasions and once claimed that he’s a diamond to work with, saying,
“He’s so cool to do an action sequence with because he’s such a physical sort of expert in what he does. He moves fluidly. He’s got a great sort of judgment of time and space, so he’s not going to whack you in the head by mistake, which is a godsend. He’s extremely precise, and he’s just so relaxed. He’s just a diamond to work with. He’s a 10 out of 10.”
Meg 2: The Trench, Statham’s latest film, had its international premiere on June 9, 2023, at the Shanghai International Film Festival. The movie has received mixed reviews from the audience and has grossed $316 million at the global box office.
