There are so many big movies that are going to debut their movie trailer during Superbowl 2018, and one of those movies is Dwayne Johnson’s Skyscraper.
Dywane Johnson tweeted the official poster of his new film Skyscraper.
We’re all willing to sacrifice it all when it comes to protecting our families.
Here’s the first look at our original concept film, #SKYSCRAPER.

With a little teaser.
I loved Dwayne The Rock Johnson in San Andreas, so it goes without saying I’m actually pretty excited for Skyscraper’s trailer debut during Superbowl 2018. The poster looks glorious.. except the nerds on the internet also think it’s extremely ridiculous because Dwayne Johnson is never going to make that jump. A dude literally mocked up some parabolas to calculate The Rock’s trajectory.
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

And some “scientists” hilariously tried come up with solutions to save The Rock from plummeting to death.
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

2. He said he did some science so it’s gotta be true.
So I did some science.
Assuming that there is no "jump-off" (which seems to be optimal here)
We can determine that the Rock would need to leave the platform at 12.7 meters per second (appr. 28.4 mph)
For comparison, Usain Bolt's fastest recorded speed is 27.4 mph. pic.twitter.com/GruWcbtEAN

3. Easy solution.
There, he's made it. Cake and grief counseling will be available at the conclusion of the movie. pic.twitter.com/JlYfu0od1Q

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

You missed the point that there is an invisible bridge like in Indy 3. All Dwayne has to do is throw magic blue dust on it and he shall make it. pic.twitter.com/LQbURPuZ4g

Non-engineers tend to neglect wind effects, I put a blue line that clearly shows the updraft from the fire below which carries the Rock to safety. pic.twitter.com/3hiemMqDRq

Ah HA! You've fallen for classic misdirection! The gantry is a red herring. There was a MAN CANNON just out of frame! pic.twitter.com/ZjTTkj8Vkt

Couldn't he have been accelerating towards the end of the jump, the height of the approach wouldn't need to be as high with sufficient horizontal inertia? A world class longjump is 10 meters, DTRJ is 1.9 meters tall, the whole thing is about 12 meters across… he could do it. pic.twitter.com/LWKwWrXxDD
