The Rock Lays the Smackdown in New ‘Fast 8′ Set Photo

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – if you have The Rock in your movie, you really don’t need to worry about marketing it all that much. Sure pay for some posters to be put up around Hollywood maybe, and throw a few TV spots in occasionally, but he’ll basically do all the rest. No one’s social media game can top his, and if you need any more proof of that – look no further than the Fast 8 set photos he’s been posting over the past few months.

After already teasing his character, Hobbs, being put in some some orange overalls and chucked in prison at some point in the film, it didn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that despite whatever plot points it might be for, it was mostly all so we can see him escape in the most bad ass fashion probably just a few minutes later.

Turns out we were right too, thanks to the latest set image from the actor on the film, which shows him literally mowing through an entire cell block of idiots standing in his way:

Here’s just a rule of thumb – if you see Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (spelling it all out for effect right now) coming at you and he’s got some fists raised, your only two options are to either run for the hills, or get on the ground in a fetal position and hope he’ll just forget about you.

… Anyways, we’re really excited to see this sequence in the movie. It’ll probably be one of the most kickass moments of the franchise if we’re being honest. Which is a damn good thing too, considering he spent a majority of Furious 7 in a hospital bed.

Fast 8 is set to hit theatres on April 14th, 2017.
