New Trailer: Dwayne Johnson in 'The Tooth Fairy'

New Trailer: Dwayne Johnson in ‘The Tooth Fairy’

tooth-fairy-poster-1Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has had quite an interesting career in a pretty short amount of time. He’s covered just about all of the prerequisites that his Action Movie forefathers set for him: Sci-Fi franchise, art-house picture, buddy movie, and family film. Those accolades took stars like Schwartzenegger and Stallone 15 years to accomplish, and Johnson has managed to do them in 5. He’s now coming off of the success of Race to Witch Mountain and The Game Plan for another family-friendly film in The Tooth Fairy.

In the film, Johnson plays tough guy Derek Thompson, known to his friends as “The Tooth Fairy” due to his aggressive sportsmanship on the hockey rink. Thompson is kind of an S.O.B. to fans, friends, and even his kid, until things get turned around and he is sentenced to serve as an actual tooth fairy.

The cast is pretty heavy, throwing in names like Ashley Judd and Julie Andrews, but the most interesting is the addition of Billy Crystal to the cast. This is Crystal’s first on-screen role since 2002’s Analyze That (with brief voice role in 2006’s Cars). It’s interesting that Crystal would come out of the woodwork for this film, but it could have something to do with the film’s screenwriters. The script was done by the writing team of Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel, who worked with Crystal on films like City Slickers, Forget Paris and Mr. Saturday Night.

Check out the first trailer for the film after the jump. Enjoy Dwayne, Billy, and the rest of the cast when The Tooth Fairy hits theaters January 22 of next year.

    Just came from seeing this lame-ass movie and you can see the microphone boom at the top of the screen throughout nearly the entire movie. In one scene where the Tooth Fairy is supposedly learning to fly, you can see the ropes holding up Dwayne. Like a crappy ‘B’ movie. However, Billy Crystal is always funny.

    You can see the microphone a LOT in this movie which was extremely distracting and when I couldn’t see it I found myself looking for it. There’s also a scene where he has to fly and you can see the chains holding him up!! It’s ridiculous considering this is a professional Hollywood movie.

    in the movie sometiomes you can see the microphone they used to make the movie appear at the top of the screen, in the cinema evryone was just like, “hey look, a microphone!” some people laughed, some people groaned, because it was pretty lame.
