Having topped the international box office back in 2013, former WWE star Dwayne Johnson has now repeated the feat for 2015, with last year’s hits San Andreas and Fast & Furious 7 generating $1.488 billion and earning The Rock the title of Top International Box Office Star.
“Only way to start this post is with THANK YOU,” said Johnson on Instagram. “WORLD’S #1 INTERNATIONAL BOX OFFICE STAR. I was blessed with this title in 2013 and now again in 2015. $1.48billion is a lot of revenue to generate in our business in only one year, BUT it’s also the important reminder that regardless of what we achieve in life, we always gotta keep striving for more, staying hungrier than the rest and being grateful around every corner. This cool global achievement doesn’t happen without my amazing family, management, agents, attorneys, publicists, financial management, studio partners, fellow actors, Team Rock and the final two deserving personal shout outs – my dog #HobbsTheBeast and you… THE greatest f*cking fans in the world. Stay hungry and keep working your ass off because one day I want to see the news write a cool report about you and YOUR accomplishments.”
Johnson has two movies lined up for 2016 in the action comedy Central Intelligence and the Disney animation Moana, while 2017 will see him appearing the the Baywatch reboot, along with the sequel Fast 8.
