Watch The Rock Blow The Roof Off Of Hall H

Can you smell what The Rock is cooking? Normally, the smell in Hall H is body odor. Today, it was a freebie giveaway for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson’s latest film, Hercules.

The massive action star morphed back into pro wrestling mode as he surprised Hall H with an appearance near the middle of today’s Paramount panel. There had been rumors of a Rock appearance – as well as rumors that the studio would be hosting free screenings of Brett Ratner’s summer blockbuster. Well, The Rock confirmed it. Then revealed that he would Tweet out the location of the free screenings in San Diego on his Twitter feed this afternoon.

That’s fine for all of you who happen to be at San Diego, and want to break away from Comic-Con for a shot of Hercules. But the rest of you tracking Comic-Con from home can’t see Hercules for free. So you want to watch The Rock. And man, does he ooze personality as he works the thousands packed into Hall H. Johnson is a born entertainer. Hand him a microphone, place him in front of a crowd, and watch the magic happen.

We will have a review of Hercules on the site soon. In the meantime, enjoy this raw footage of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson’s rock-star appearance in Hall H. It might be the most entertaining clip you’ll watch this week.
