The following contains spoilers for Hobbs & Shaw**.**
Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart are great friends, and the way you can tell that is that the two are constantly giving each other shit. The duo have starred in movies together like Central Intelligence and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, but even when the pair aren't on screen together, you can see them messing with each other in interviews and on social media.
Kevin Hart continued the ribbing recently, by making a comment on The Rock's Instagram. The post showed Johnson working out, and while Hart congratulated him on the box office opening of Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw, he also couldn't help but poke a little fun at his friend, specifically, the outfit. Hart's comment reads...
Get a bigger tank top man. It looks like your wearing a thong on your back. I'm reporting this post... I'm sick of it!!! P.S. Congrats on the big opening… you deserve it you piece of donkey shit.
To be fair, Kevin Hart isn't really wrong. On Dwayne Johnson's massive back, the tank top he's wearing doesn't look like much. Check out the "offending" post below.
It will be interesting to see if Dwayne Johnson responds with any comments of his own. Probably something about Kevin Hart being small, of course, compared to The Rock, almost everybody is.
As far as the box office for Hobbs & Shaw, the movie won the weekend with about $60 million in domestic business. For a Fast and Furious movie, that's actually a little on the low side, but the movie has already done almost $250 million globally, making it a solid hit. In unadjusted dollars, the movie has already made more in a week than the first three Fast & Furious movies made in their entire box office run. It may not make the billion dollars plus that the last could F&F movies have made, but it'll likely still be fine.
Of course, there's another reason that Kevin Hart might be glad that the Hobbs & Shaw box office is doing well. Hart actually has a role in the film, and while it's barely more than a cameo, the movie certainly is looking for a sequel and the implication is that if that sequel happens, Hart might end up with a bigger role, and therefore a bigger payday.It's in his best interests that the movie do well.
Of course, we'll just have to wait and see which Johnson/Hart collaboration is going to be the biggest movie of the year. The two will co-star in the sequel to Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle later this year, and considering just how big a box office smash the last movie was, Jumanji: The Next Level could be these Hobbs & Shaw numbers to shame.
