Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Plays real-life hero as ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ Premiere Delayed by Electrical Sparks


Saturday night’s premiere of “Hobbs & Shaw” was brought to a standstill resulting a brief electrical issue in the Dolby Theater. Information from inside the venue say an electrical grid near the front of the theatre started flickering about 30 minutes into the screening, initiating flashes and loud popping sounds to fill the room. The sparks then moved upward from the floor in the midpoint of the orchestra and back toward a block of seats.

Though security did not evacuate the movie house, several people panicked and escaped from the venue, leading to extensive confusion.

Before the movie restarted, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson took time to address the viewers, letting attendees know that he was waiting in the wings to make sure mass was safe. Though, “Jason Statham ran his– out of here”, he stated. The interruption lasted only around 15 minutes before the film started playing again.

In “Hobbs & Shaw,” Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham reprise their characters as Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw only to squad up and take down a cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist, played by Idris Elba.
