Dwayne Johnson’s upcoming action flick Skyscraper seems like a pretty obvious no-brainer, on a variety of levels. Sure, a movie about Johnson playing a rogue FBI agent saving his family from a massive burning building doesn’t exactly sound like Shakespeare, but it’s not like we don’t want to see the movie that generates that kick-ass poster of him leaping like a billion feet from a crane into an ominously broken window. Now, thanks to the film’s new Super Bowl trailer, we can see whether the movie—out July 13, just in time for big dumb summer blockbuster season—is likely to live up to our towering expectations for it.


Early on, the trailer drops a surprise reveal that the ridiculous poster didn’t spoil: Johnson’s character has a prosthetic leg. It doesn’t seem to impede his ability to fly through the air at all, but there’s probably nothing that would stop The Rock from doing awesome The Rock stuff. It looks very Die Hard other than that, but it’s not like anyone isn’t interested in a movie with Dwayne Johnson that looks a lot like Die Hard.
