The new trailer for Rampage just took an unexpected turn as primatologist Davis Oyoke (Dwayne Johnson) exclaims, “Of course the wolf can fly.”
Yes, in the brand new trailer for New Line Cinema’s video game adaptation, Ralph – the mutated wolf – can fly. There’s also some additional footage of a young George and plenty more destruction from the streets of Chicago. If Ralph can fly, what surprises can we expect from Goerge and Lizzie?
The film reteams Johnson with San Andreas director Brad Peyton with a targeted April 20, 2018 release.

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, based on the video game “Rampage”.
