The Rock’s Next Movie, Batista-Scorpion King, UFC 141



– Early buyrate numbers are in for last Friday’s UFC 141 pay-per-view featuring Brock Lesnar’s loss to Alistair Overeem – and once again, Brock has shown to be a blockbuster pay-per-view draw.

Early estimates for the show that featured what turned out to be Lesnar’s final MMA fight drew between 750,000 and 810,000 North American PPV buys, which is even higher than original expectations.

Lesnar is one of only 3 people to ever draw over 1 million pay-per-view buys twice in a year. The other two are Manny Pacquiao and Mike Tyson.

– FOX affiliate KDVR based out of Denver has a review up of The Sorpion King 3, the straight-to-DVD movie co-starring former WWE star Batista and MMA fighter Kimbo Slice. The review mentioned some positives and negatives, but the closing summary stated:

“The Scorpion King 3 may not feel like it belongs in the world of the original films, but it is a very fun, light hearted romp. Definitely worth a rental.”

– WWE star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who is currently filming the movie “Snitch” in New Orleans, is negotiating to star in the upcoming film “Empire State.”

Deadline.com reports that The Rock would join Liam Hemsworth in the movie based on a real event in 1982 where $11 million was stolen from an armored car in New York. Production is scheduled to begin in April, immediately after The Rock’s match with John Cena at WrestleMania 28.
