Dig in. #SkyscraperMovie.
Want to thank the various spec ops boys who helped me bring this character to life.
Especially on the HRT (hostage rescue) crisis negotiations side.
Shooting this film has been an intense and unforgettable experience and I’m grateful to the bone for the opportunity to put in the work.
Honored to wear the patch over the heart to recognize our fallen.
Lorek and Shaw.
Thank you team. Respect. #SkyscraperMovie#Vancouver#China
#1 trending movie trailer in the world. That’s cool, but now you’ve really pissed off the gigantic albino gorilla, the 30ft mutated wolf and the what the f*ck is that angry, mutated crocodile that’s bigger than an entire football stadium.
Thanks everyone for diggin’ the trailer. Ohhhh...
the fun you’re gonna have.
I had a blast with this dude @teammarik who blessed our set w/ his presence.
For those who don’t know Marik’s story. He’s battling cancer and recently placed on hospice. He made a bucket list... and meeting me was on that list.
So here we are.. I’m pushing him around set, having fun, introducing him to our crew and explaining to him how our “Hollywood magic” works behind the scenes.
He had a blast. I was grateful.
I don’t know why things happen to kids the way they do. Over the years of spending time with kids and parents who are struggling hard thru disease (often terminal), I’ve realized we just gotta hold onto faith in knowing that there’s a much bigger and positive reason why this happens. Even if I don’t understand it at that moment.
For me, this’ll always be the best part of fame. And the reminder that the most powerful thing we can all do is lead with strong empathy and love.
It’s also the reminder to never let yourself get caught up in petty sh*t and keep your thoughts and energy optimistic and big picture.
So grateful I had a chance to hang with my man Marik aka.. the King of Xbox. #MarikAndRock#OnSet#BucketListFun#GratefuMan
Moment we hugged I started getting choked up (manly tears of course:). Hard to even fathom what this mom @teammarik (and so many parents who I meet) is going thru as her son, Marik is fighting the fight of his life.
What a strong mama with a beautiful heart who’s beyond blessed with an incredible son who inspires all those around him - including me.
When she said “Give your kids a hug and cherish every single moment”.. that one hit home, because it’s such a reminder to love and hug our loved as hard we can because we never know what tomorrow may bring. #MarikAndRock#OnSet#BucketListFun
The signed #RockDeltas are on their way.
Thank you to the thousands who participated in our USDNA Veterans Day giveaway and sharing your inspiring heartfelt stories of the military men and women you have in your life.
And THANK YOU to the boys and girls of our US Military past and present.
I’m grateful to the bone. #ProjectRock#UnderArmour#RockDeltas#1 USDNA
I’m loving every second of @teammarik just looking at me, smiling and still not saying a word lol.
I did get two chuckles when I said I would fire anyone who doesn’t take care of him and if he didn’t like my performance while I’m shooting just yell out, yo you suck!
More to share w you guys later about this special visit. And some incredibly moving and emotional words his mama, Kelii told me. Words we could all use as we move along in this amazing yet tough and unpredictable thing called life. #MarikAndRock#OnSet#BucketListFun
Aaaaaaaand The Rock invited me to meet him, but now that he’s in front of me, I will become totally shy, smile and not say a word . This is my special guest @TeamMarik and his lovely mama, Kelii.
Marik has been placed on hospice care and fighting cancer like a real warrior and meeting me was on his bucket list.
We flew him out to hang with me on set so we could spend some time together.
I’ll share more with you guys about our visit later today.
And the funny part about teens, children and adults too becoming super shy and silent, is that the moment I leave, THEN they start talking lol!
What a day. What a kid. More to come.. #MarikAndRock#OnSet#BucketListFun
Sharp dressed man.
Appreciate brotha @stephencurry30 rockin’ our new #ProjectRock@underarmour collection from head to toe.
I will now take full credit for Stephen going down in history as the NBA’s greatest shooter of all time.
Luv ya man and thank you guys worldwide for making this collection a big success and personal motivator. #GOAT#ProjectRock#USDNA
Our new #ProjectRock@underarmour USDNA Collection is on fire. Thank you! *link in my bio.
And yes, I’m unapologetic in the gym when I start to sense too much bullshitting and not enough getting work done.
If you see me working in the gym, just pass me on by and don’t try and talk to me. Have some gym etiquette or I will stop what I’m doing and eat you for lunch.
Stay strong, train hard and enjoy your new gear. #ProjectRock#NoGymBullshitting#OrYouBecomeLunch
Here’s two vids of a bucket list surprise for a very special and awesome 15yr old kid who I just found out was placed in hospice.
I’m flew him out to LA to meet me tomorrow on set and we put him and his mom up at one of my favorite hotels in the world, #ShuttersOnTheBeach in Santa Monica. As you see in the video so many of my colleagues and friends went all out to make him feel awesome when he arrived with his mama, Kelli.
Kid’s been battling cancer since 2012. He had his right leg amputated and went thru hard core chemo treatments that year.
In 2016, a large tumor was found in his lung and he had thoracic surgery to remove it. After declaring cancer free in January 2017, another tumor was found in Marik’s lung this past June.
This kids fighting like a CHAMP. Can’t wait to meet you dude.. you got a BIG ROCK SIZE HUG coming your way tomorrow!
As a punk kid I dropped tons of quarters in this arcade game while hangin’ out in smokey pool halls, I had no business hangin’ out in. Today, George is my best friend and I proudly give you our new #RampageMovie trailer. Link in bio. Enjoy. #BigMeetsBigger
Our first #RampageMovie trailer goes down TODAY at 5pm EST / 2PM PST.
Btw, this is my best friend, George.
A rare gigantic albino Silverback.
I love animals because they’re the most honest creatures on earth.
If they like you, they lick you. If they don’t, they eat you. #BigMeetsBigger#GorillaLickage#RAMPAGEMovie
My final day in Vancouver... sending a huge thank you to the hundreds of hard working crew responsible for always setting up my #IronParadise aka my traveling carnival in every location I film at.
40,000lbs of steal and iron.
I can maintain and build upon an insane work schedule, but only due to having my anchor ready to go every morning at 5am.
Grateful to the bone. Thank you guys. #MyAnchor#TravelingIronCarnival#HouseOfFreaks
It’s a #BigMeetsBigger kinda week.
Our new #RAMPAGEMovie trailer drops this THURSDAY. My best friend in the movie is a BIG boy. Big as in a MASSIVE rare albino Silverback, named George.
Here’s the challenge: post pics what’s BIG in your life. Could be you and a huge animal, a human pyramid with you at the top, you and 7ft Shaq etc.
All you need is imagination, something big af and your phone. And a little tequila never hurts.
I’ll highlight the TOP 5 this THURSDAY during my FIRST EVER INSTAGRAM LIVE before we launch our trailer.
I’ll send the TOP 5 a bunch of free, new bad ass #ProjectRock gear. It’s @underarmour’s hottest selling collection of 2017 so get creative.
Make sure you hashtag #BigMeetsBigger and #RampageMovie.
Dreams ain’t just for dreamers.
When I was an 11yr old punk kid, I’d go into NYC with my old man and we’d always walk Times Square around 1am for our “midnight snack” of burgers and fries.
I’d look up at all the bright lights and billboards and just be in a state of awe and dreaming.
A friend just sent me this pic that’s in the middle of Times Square.
Stuff like this will never get old and why I’m a grateful SOB.
Cheers to 1am burgers, fries and dreams. #Jumanji CHRISTMAS
THANK YOU to the thousands who shared their stories with us. Someone from my team will be contacting you and I’m personally signing those brand new @underarmour#RockDeltas coming your way.
Deepest gratitude to the men and women (and their families) who’ve proudly served and protected our blessed freedom and great country.
With boundless respect. #USDNA#VeteransDay
All my friends went to a very cool, glamorous Hollywood party tonight with lots of pretty people, but who needs that headache, when you can have this party.
Huge stack of banana, chocolate chip pancakes. Pure Canadian maple syrup, jar of crunchy peanut butter ready to be slathered all over the cakes and a double shot of tequila on the side.
And a great doc on the history of the Irish American Mob.
My kinda party #DukeOfTheWestside
