In other Rock related movie news, he’s heading to Europe to promote The Game Plan and they hope after he’s done promoting it that the figures for the movie will end up between $140 and $150 million. Also, Rock said that test marketing for his other upcoming movie, Get Smart, tested very high and that people thought it was funny. The movie will be released on June 20.
