Avengers: Infinity War looks set to pass the two billion mark at the box office, making Dave Bautista the first wrestler to star in a movie grossing two billion. We now look back at big Dave’s incredible transition into acting, and we choose five movies of “The Animal’s” that wrestling fans need to see.
It’s a busy time for wrestlers in Hollywood. The Rock is providing producers with one super hit after another. John Cena received critical acclaim for his roles in Blockers and Ferdinand, the latter also performing well at the box office. This has led to him landing a role in Robert Downey Jr’s The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle, and a starring role in a movie produced by, you guessed it, The Rock.
Surprisingly, Dave Bautista, who has had a much more successful and dare I say glamorous acting career than John Cena, still doesn’t have the level of stardom possessed by the leader of the “Cenation.” However, to his credit, Bautista has experimented with his roles and developed into an actor capable of using far more than his Hulk-like physique.
It’s this willingness to break away from stereotypical roles that has allowed Bautista to work with some of the biggest and best names in Hollywood. So we have picked five of his movies that you have to see!
