CAN YOU SMMMMELLLLL WHAT THE ROCK IS COOKIN?

No? Well, let us help you out. The Rock is cooking a fat slab of beef - Twitter beef, to be more specific.

Yes, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is no stranger to a bit of a wrestle, both in the ring and on social media, but this time it looks like he's met his match and been put firmly on his arse by Empire Magazine designer Olly Gibbs.

The trailer for the new Jumanji movie, starring Johnson, hit the internet earlier this week and something rang a bell for the Empire employee while watching it.

The tagline for the new Jumanji film is 'Welcome to the Jungle', which eagle-eyed Gibbs noticed was actually exactly the same tagline used in 2003's The Rundown, also starring Johnson.

Naturally, Gibbs took to Twitter to question The Rock about the similarities between the two movies.


Not one to be undermined, The Rock hit back, accusing Gibbs of using a 'non-masculine emoji' - now there's a paradox if we've ever heard one.


But quick as a flash, Gibbs hit back with an ancient photo of Johnson striking the exact pose he had referred to as 'non-masculine'.


Touché

Being the sound guy that he clearly is, Johnson took it in his stride, saying : "Hahah you MF! I'm on set now and this shit got a big belly laugh outta me. Thx. Perfect. Next time I'll wear something with more blue in it."

Dwayne Johnson is basically 2017's biggest star. The former wrestler, current actor and all-round nice dude was the highest paid movie star in the world last year and has four films hitting the screens 2017: Baywatch, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, The Fate of the Furious and Journey 3: From the Earth to the Moon.

The next one out will be Jumanji in December and it's something that Johnson has been excited about for a long time. Unveiling the trailer on Wednesday, he said: "This is a very exciting morning because what you guys are getting ready to see is a sneak peak of our new movie, 'Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,'.

"We didn't want to make a remake. We wanted to honour the original [and] make a movie that the world would enjoy by continuing the legacy, continuing the journey."

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle hits UK cinemas on December 29 2017.
