People Notice There’s Something Wrong With The Rock’s New Movie Poster, And Things Escalate Quickly

People are calling Dwayne Johnson ‘The Rock-et’ after he shared a movie poster of his upcoming flick. The action thriller is set in the not-so-distant future, where his character, Will Ford, is called in to inspect the security at the tallest skyscraper in the world, called The Pearl. And yes, films like these don’t always rely on the laws of physics, but the internet believes this one is a wee bit too much illogical.

After scanning the promotional material with skepticism, movie-geeks had a lot to say about the stunt performed on Skyscraper movie poster. I mean, some of them even used math and drew charts to back up their claims, so it’s safe to say that things got serious. Scroll down to check out if that impossible jump is too big even for Dwayne The Rock himself and feel free to watch the trailer for the movie here.

Another movie from Hollywood that defies all logic and laws of physics? In other news, the water is wet.

Water isn't wet. Objects can be wet. A piece of paper can be burned, but you would never say "Fire is burnt." Therefore, water is just water. :|

Wait, apart from the scientific analysis let's stick to some basic logic. The question is, why would anyone want to jump INTO a burning building instead of just getting as far from it as possible?:P

Because he's The bloody Rock. And The Rock does what he wants to do - period.

I bet the prosthetic leg (seen in the trailer) has a hydraulic system to help with the jump..I haven't read that theory yet
