Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is once again tasked with saving the entire world (he’s damn good at that, in case you couldn’t tell) in San Andreas director Brad Peyton’s Rampage, an adaptation of the same-named arcade game from the ’80s.
A massive, mutated gorilla, werewolf and oh yeah, the crocodile from the game totally makes an appearance too, are on full display in the official trailer, which promises a wildly entertaining good time – even if it looks visually drab, lacking in personality, and, well, like a movie you’ve probably already seen on the big screen before.
Also, is that *not* the Abominable Snowman from the Goosebumps movie?!
But come on. The Rock vs. giant monsters. We are so completely on board.
Get ready to Rampage on April 20, 2018.
In the film, “Primatologist Davis Okoye (Johnson), a man who keeps people at a distance, shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent, silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry transforms this gentle ape into a raging monster. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered alpha predators. As these newly created monsters tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.”
The screenplay is by Ryan Engle and Adam Sztykiel, story by Ryan Engle.
Rampage also stars Oscar nominee Naomie Harris (Moonlight), Malin Akerman (TV’s Billions), Jake Lacy (TV’s Girls), Joe Manganiello (TV’s True Blood) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (TV’s The Walking Dead); as well as P.J. Byrne (Final Destination 5), Marley Shelton (Solace), Breanne Hill (San Andreas), Jack Quaid (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), and Matt Gerald (TV’s Daredevil).
