SAN ANTONIO - The trailer for the Rock’s new movie “Skyscraper” debuted Sunday during the Super Bowl and it’s everything you’d expect from a Dwayne Johnson action movie.
It promises lots of action and an original concept, according to a Tweet from the man himself.
The reason it’s trending on Twitter, however, is the seemingly impossible jump at the end of the trailer that shows Johnson jumping from a crane to a skyscraper.
Check out some of the reactions to the poster below:
I’ve mocked up some parabolas for The Rock’s SKYSCRAPER jump. Red is assuming he jumped up a bit first; green assuming he ran forward and somehow didn’t lose momentum; yellow for a sort of squat-thrust thing.
Whichever you choose, rest in peace The Rock, as you are dead now. pic.twitter.com/cAytzrWMRW — James Smythe (@jpsmythe) February 2, 2018
I’ve thought long and hard about this, applying everything I know about science to bring you the definitive answer: if he just catches the leg of the K, he can use his momentum and the velocity in which he is travelling to allyoop into the window. He might have to grab the ledge pic.twitter.com/yjpuPpV9I9 — Jamie Rorison (@JamieRorison) February 2, 2018
You’re assuming he’s jumping from right to left. Maybe he’s been blown out of the building by an explosion and is about to be impaled on some crane. pic.twitter.com/eN5RkqdlXS — Daniel Benneworth-Gray (@gray) February 4, 2018
