Rampage is what happens when you combine the monsters of Kong: Skull Island and Godzilla with the motion-capture effects of the Planet of the Apes franchise, and then add The Rock because why the heck not?! Rampage is exactly the type of movie you you want to watch on a way too cold Spring day. Films like this should be pictured in the dictionary next to the phrase “Popcorn Movie” and this is a perfect way to ignore the stress of life for 2 hours and turn your brain off. This is the Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and giant monsters. If you read that and stop to think, you’re already working too hard.
We all know that Dwayne Johnson can be a tough guy in and out of the ring, but he’s never faced an opponent quite as intimidating as the giant creatures in Rampage, which Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for.
Based on the coin-op arcade name of the same name, the film sees Johnson take on a new kind of video game where he will face a towering gorilla, a fearsome crocodile, and a flying wolf. Yup, the wolf flies. But at least Johnson’s big arm will save us. Check out the full trailer below.
Warner Bros. Pictures has released the first trailer for New Line Cinema’s Rampage, which stars Dwayne Johnson, Naomie Harris, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Malin Akerman, Joe Manganiello, Jake Lacy, Marley Shelton, P.J. Byrne, Jack Quaid, and Matt Gerald, and is directed by Brad Peyton.
The movie is based on the classic arcade game of the same name, in which players took control of giant monsters and attempted to do as much damage to cities as possible. You can check out the trailer below, along with a poster for the movie and a synopsis.
You might have assumed that a massive disaster flick like last year’s San Andreas was one of those rare blockbusters that wouldn’t get a sequel, even if it was a hit. You underestimate Hollywood. The movie was a huge hit, making nearly half a billion dollars worldwide, and it has now been confirmed that a sequel is officially in the works.
New Line is developing the sequel, and has hired the writing duo of Neil Widener and Gavin James to work on the screenplay. Carlton Cuse penned the first movie’s screenplay based on a story by Andre Fabrizio and Jeremy Passmore. Additionally, the cast of the first movie including Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Carla Gugino, Alexandra Daddario, and Paul Giamatti are all expected to return for the sequel. Director Brad Peyton is also expected to return.
