DUBAI: Hollywood actor Dwayne Johnson teased the release of his new movie “Black Adam” to Dubai film fans on Friday with a video he shared on the movie’s Twitter page.
Johnson’s character was seen electrifying the city’s tourist hotspots like Burj Al-Arab, the Museum of the Future and Burj Khalifa in the 47-second clip.
The superstar said: “Hello Dubai, Dwayne Johnson here, and I’m so excited to report to you guys that ‘Black Adam,’ my new movie, is already lighting up the city and taking over some of the coolest landmarks and the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa.”
Johnson is the titular star in the superhero movie and has just escaped after almost 5,000 years of incarceration. His old-school approach to punishment sees the Justice Society of America (which includes DC Comics characters Hawkman, Atom Smasher, Cyclone and Doctor Fate) get involved. They attempt to modernize Adam’s approach and persuade him to join them in their battle against the sinister Sabbac, who is possessed by a powerful demon.
The film hits theaters in the region on Oct. 20.
