Dwayne Johnson has taken on a lot of things since the former wrestler entered the world of cinema, and in 2018 he’s taking on a giant gorilla, giant wolf, and a giant crocodile. The first trailer for Warner Bros. & New Line Cinema’s adaptation of the video game franchise Rampage has arrived.
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 mutates this gentle ape into a raging creature of enormous size. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered animals. As these newly created alpha predators 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 re-teams Johnson with San Andreas director Brad Peyton and also stars Naomie Harris, Jeffery Dean Morgan, Malin Akerman, Joe Manganiello, Marley Shelton, Jake Lacy, PJ Byrne, Jack Quaid, Matt Gerald and Breanne Hill. The film opens on April 20, 2018.
