– Dwayne “The rock” Johnson is quoted in a USA Today article discussing the upcoming Academy Awards. The article talks about The Dark Knight as one of the first box office
blockbusters to also be an frontrunner at the Oscars. Johnson said, “It has always bothered me how quickly critics and (awards) voters dismiss something just because a lot of people like it. I really hope (The Dark Knight) gets nominated. I think it could dispel that disconnect between people who see the movies
and the people who judge and write about them.” The Rock has 3 big budget films due out this year, starting with “Race to Witch Mountain” on 3/13, “The Tooth Fairy” on 7/13 and Planet 51 on 11/20.
