The Rock’s New Movie Bombs, Warrior-WWE, Low Ki Update


– Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s new animated movie “Planet 51” opened at No. 3 at the box office this weekend with $12.6 million. While this is a disappointing number, the movie went up against the opening of “The Twilight Saga: New Moon,” which opened at over $140 million.

— It was reported this past September that the lawsuit Warrior (a.k.a. Ultimate Warrior) had filed against World Wrestling Entertainment in January 2006 regarding its DVD release on him, Self Destruction of the Ultimate Warrior, was thrown out. Judge Douglas L. Rayes ruled that Warrior could not sue for damages over the company’s comments towards him on the title because he had made “publicly disparaging claims” against WWE (on his website). It was also ruled that Warrior would have to pay WWE‘s attorney costs and expenses in defending themselves against his breach of contract lawsuit — a total of $18,967.46. In an update on the situation, both sides later came to the judge and said the case had been resolved, with World Wrestling Entertainment waiving Warrior’s near $19,000 legal bill.
