Coming Soon Trailers: Skyscraper, Hotel Transylvania 3.
It’s The Rock versus Dracula at the box office, while the streaming market is red hot with 15 releases.
It’s summer, so that means it’s time for a Dwayne Johnson action flick. Actually, pretty much any season means its time for a Dwayne Johnson action flick. The man doesn’t take vacations. This week he’ll be scaling a towering inferno, not to be confused with the actual Towering Inferno. His competition is the Adam Sandler led animated sequel, Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation. So I guess that means there are two disaster movies out this week.
If you’re skipping the theaters this week, you have plenty of options. 15 films hit the streaming catalogues. Pretty much every conceivable genre from a documentary about a stuntman, to zombies, to a punk rock biopic, and a love story about a guy impersonating the mail man. There’s even a Keanu Reeves thriller, so I know my bases are covered at least!
Will Ford (Dwayne Johnson) is a war veteran who uses his extensive training to ensure the security of high profile buildings. He’s put under the ultimate stress test when his latest client is attacked by a business rival. Ford is blamed for the attack, and must clear his name while also trying to rescue his family from the fiery skyscraper.

To escape the stress of the hotel business, Dracula and his family of ghouls decide to take a luxury cruise just for monsters. Things appear sunny, especially when it looks like Drac has found love, but the captain of the ship is hiding a secret that threatens everyone’s vacation.
