Dwayne Johnson gets rocked by his fear of roller coasters

The action film is already off to a solid start, bringing in $2.4 million in Thursday previews ahead of an expected $34 million debut.

"I played with the match in Hawaii once I was 13 years of age", Johnson, 45, told Reuters prior to the Warner Bros. -distributed release of "Rampage" at USA theaters on Friday. However, because Rampage was made off a $120 million budget, it won't be enough for Rampage to draw in the big bucks stateside. The other big release this weekend, Blumhouse's Truth or Dare, is tracking to pull around $16 million. "It was wonderful working with Dwayne because he has such incredible charisma".

Rampage, based on the '80s video game of the same name, stars Johnson as Davis Okoye, the head of an anti-poaching unit in Rwanda whose best friend, a rare albino gorilla named George, is infected with a serum that causes him to grow in both size and aggression at an unprecedented rate. Johnson, who plays primatologist Davis Okoye, is the only one who can stop them.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's latest movie, Rampage, has arrived in theaters.

Byrne ("The Wolf of Wall Street"), Marley Shelton ("Solace"), Breanne Hill ("San Andreas"), Jack Quaid ("The Hunger Games: Catching Fire"), and Matt Gerald (TV's "Daredevil").

Responding, Dwayne wrote, "Yes sir, happy you picked up on that".
