And yes, *everything* includes a giant gorilla body slamming a human.
Set for release on April 20, director Brad Peyton’s Rampage is promising one thing above else: big, dumb entertainment that’ll go down smooth with a bucket of over-priced, over-buttered popcorn. Wrestler-turned-biggest movie star in the world Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson stars in the Kaiju film, which gets a new trailer from the land of the Kaiju.
Johnson himself introduces this week’s Japanese trailer for Rampage, one that cuts out all that boring plot and character nonsense and gets right to the good stuff!
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.”
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, The Wolf of Wall Street), Marley Shelton (Solace), Breanne Hill (San Andreas), Jack Quaid (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), and Matt Gerald (TV’s Daredevil).
The screenplay is by Ryan Engle and Adam Sztykiel, story by Ryan Engle.
