Dwayne Johnson is reminded of his record-breaking year with his most recent two films competing in rating wars on the two largest streaming platforms.
Rock is currently enjoying the success of Red Notice, which has become the most watched movie on Netflix since its release last month, and Disney Plus’ Jungle Cruise also topped Nielsen’s 10 Best SVODs.
And in a new interview with CNN, Dwayne, 49, revealed whether he will run for president in 2024, when his tequila brand is booming and becoming the most watched American on Instagram.
Man to Beat: Dwayne Johnson is reminded of his record-breaking year, with his last two films competing in rating wars across two of the biggest streaming platforms.
After an impressive wrestling career, Duane made his way into the shining light of Hollywood and was asked if politics would be next on the agenda.
Describing a Vanity Fair poll in which nearly half of Americans would vote for him as “humiliating” Rock does not believe he will make a “good politician.”
He said that he still “doesn’t know a damn thing about politics” and “doesn’t think there is a political gene in my DNA.”

Rock explained, “I feel the best position I can be in right now is to be a place that is trusted and not judged by people; no matter which side of the street you live on, what color you are, how you make a living, how you choose your life, what your bank account says, whether you drive or take the bus. I do not care.
“It doesn’t matter to me. Just work hard, take care of your family, be kind to people, be kind to people, be honest, honor your word and always [have] have some fun along the way. And don’t be an ass. As I said, I don’t think I’ll make a good politician. ”
But Dwayne does have a goal for 2022 – to turn his Teremana brand of tequila into an international business.

The Rock shared how impressed he was that George Clooney sold his Casamigos brand for $ 1 billion.
Not content with selling 600,000 nine-liter cases, a record for first-year sales, Rock says he hopes to make Termana “a true international tequila brand” next year.
Elsewhere in the interview, Dwayne called Red Notice a “sacred achievement” after Netflix announced that more than half of its 214 million worldwide subscribers tuned in over the past month.
In the film, Johnson plays an FBI agent who teams up with an art thief, played by Reynolds, to catch a notorious criminal, played by Gadot.
Bring It On: But Dwayne does have a goal for 2022 to grow his Teremana brand of tequila into an international business.
Upon release, the film averaged 328.8 hours of viewing in 18 days, making it the most watched film on the platform, despite dire reviews from critics.
On the subject of success, Dwayne said that he believed it “was critical for me and our Seven Bucks to deliver and move the streaming arrow,” and as such, breaking Netflix records was a “holy shit achievement.”
The film surpassed the most popular title that originally belonged to the 2018 post-apocalyptic drama Bird Box, starring Sandra Bullock.
Meanwhile, on Jungle Cruise, the actor plays skipper Frank Wolfe and stars alongside Emily Blunt and Jack Whitehall.
And the former wrestler revealed that his two films are in a ratings war on two different streaming platforms as he admitted the industry has left the movie world.
“I say this with great clarity, we are living in an amazing time for our Hollywood industry as we face a tremendous opportunity to hear and know what our audience and our consumers want, and just as importantly, how they want it,” he said.
Dwayne has previously acknowledged the success of his recent Instagram projects.
Earlier this month, he wrote, “THANK YOU guys from all over the world for this insane support.
“On streaming platforms @disneyplus and @netflix – both JUNGLE CRUISE and RED NOTICE viewed approximately 2 BILLION MINUTES per WEEK.

“This is a great opportunity in our industry for our @sevenbucksprod to first and foremost continue to serve our global audience and closely follow how people want to enjoy our movies, TV shows and other businesses on ALL platforms.
“It’s a great time in our business to learn and listen to the consumer more than ever.”
Dwayne also talked about his whopping 285 million Instagram followers.
The Hollywood star said he tried to maintain optimism on social media as he sees it as his duty as America’s most popular person not to post “easy-to-launch clickbaits.”
