Fans of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson will have to wait a little longer to see his upcoming movie, Red Notice.
Universal Studios announced they are pushing the movie back five months from June 12, 2020 to November 13, 2020. It’s an interesting move, considering they had no competition yet for the original date in June.
This new date has Red Notice going up against Paramount’s ‘Rugrats‘ films. In Red Notice, Johnson plays an Interpol agent tasked with capturing the most-wanted art thief in the world.
According to the reports, he’s getting a $20 million paycheck for this role, so hopefully this movie is a box office hit. If not, the studio is going to feel a little silly.
But then again, it’s not exactly a risk to bet on Johnson. The audience loves him. Most of his films find success at the box office. Hell, ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle‘ made a ridiculous $962 million.
His most recent films, Rampage and Skyscraper, made $426 million and $304 million respectively. Not nearly as much as Jumanji, but that’s still a lot of money. It makes writing a $20 million check easy for the studio.
