John Cena‘s movie career is on the rise as he is currently off WWE television to film the Transformers spin-off movie Bumblebee. Another film that Cena already wrapped was originally called The Pact, but that title has apparently since been changed and is the film is now retitled Blockers. We know this because a trailer for Blockers was released on Thursday.
Cena plays one of the lead roles in Blockers, along with Leslie Mann and Ike Barinholtz. They play three parents who try to stop their daughters from having sex on prom night. The original script called for “three fathers” in the role, but they made a change to put Mann in there along with Cena and Barinholtz. It was probably the right call.
The film is an adult comedy and it contains strong language, as you can see in the trailer below.
According to the film’s film’s IMDB page, the release date for Blockers is April 6, 2018, which is the Friday before WrestleMania 34. While it’s not known right now who Cena might wrestle at WrestleMania, it’s a lock that he’ll be on the card as long as he’s healthy.
It’s going to see how much WWE promotes the film because it will likely have a hard R rating when it’s released, while WWE famously produces a TV PG product. Trainwreck and Sisters, also starring Cena, were barely mentioned on WWE television, so it’s likely Blockers will follow suit. In the meantime, enjoy this trailer with John Cena and cusses. Make sure you don’t miss the scene with Cena participating in a “butt chug.”
As for when Cena might be back on WWE TV, earlier in the year he was advertised for Survivor Series, but last week he was pulled from it. Cena’s next WWE booking is at a Raw live event in New York City on December 26, which probably means he won’t return to WWE TV until 2018.
