The Rock has a lot to celebrate these days. Not only is God’s gift to mankind the star of the new disaster film, San Andreas, but the actor just received an accolade of a lifetime: A personal letter from director, Steven Spielberg.

Over the weekend, the wrestler posted a photo of himself reading a letter written to him by the famous director which according to The Rock, came out of the blue. “Steven has always been such a big inspiration to me over the years,” Dwayne Johnson, the actor’s legal name told HipHollywood exclusively. “Every once in a while I would publicly say his movies and the characters he helped create always inspired me once I got into film.”

“My agent came and I was doing a show like two or three weeks ago and he said ‘here you got a gift.’ It was so specific and there was a tremendous amount of thought that was put into it and it was so inspiring and it was so motivating and it was so cool. Then I read it all the way to the end, ‘I look forward to meeting you, Steven Spielberg.'”

Our guess is these two will be working together sooner than later.

San Andreas hits theaters on May 29.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Sattelite



One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind; to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crisis around the world and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genius behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at it’s core, it’s like, listen, ‘we gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of back bone, a message about climate change and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the cautiousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural ills and weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “Integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying ‘here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
