Now, we know that Hollywood doesn’t follow the basic laws of physics and in the portrayal of building inspector Will Ford – neither does The Rock.

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s latest upcoming action thriller set’s his character against the, fictional, tallest building in the world. After sharing the promotional poster for “Skyscraper,” the internet was quick to point out that La La Land was stretching it a bit further than usual with this flick…

With plenty of skepticism, movie-geeks took the time to ponder if The Rock could actually make the action-packed leap featured as the lead marketing stunt for the film…. do you even physics bro?

It didn’t take long for MATH to magically wonder the same thing! Cue the Physics majors…

Falling at 1.21 feet per second, The Rock would need to be running at 26.8 mph to have enough speed to make the jump… world record holder Usain Bolt’s top speed 27.8 mph. So it’s possible, but carrying 60 additional pound in body weight – we have our doubts that Hollywood’s hero is going to make the photogenic jump! Unlessssssss….
