This is the poster for Dwayne Johnson's new movie "Skyscraper" and I'm sure you saw the trailer during the Super Bowl.
We’re all willing to sacrifice it all when it comes to protecting our families.— Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) February 2, 2018
Here’s the first look at our original concept film, #SKYSCRAPER.
THIS SUNDAY during the #SuperBowl you’ll see how far one man will go to protect his wife and children. #SKYSCRAPER SUMMER 2018 pic.twitter.com/IvFGptLb67
A lot of people are asking, how the heck can he jump that far and survive?! Well, thanks to the internet, we found out it's not possible.
I’ve mocked up some parabolas for The Rock’s SKYSCRAPER jump. Red is assuming he jumped up a bit first; green assuming he ran forward and somehow didn’t lose momentum; yellow for a sort of squat-thrust thing.— James Smythe (@jpsmythe) February 2, 2018
Whichever you choose, rest in peace The Rock, as you are dead now. pic.twitter.com/cAytzrWMRW
So I did some science.— ✨New Year New Christian✨ (@ChristianBedwel) February 3, 2018
Assuming that there is no "jump-off" (which seems to be optimal here)
We can determine that the Rock would need to leave the platform at 12.7 meters per second (appr. 28.4 mph)
For comparison, Usain Bolt's fastest recorded speed is 27.4 mph. pic.twitter.com/GruWcbtEAN
