The first full trailer for Rampage, the Dwayne Johnson vehicle based on the ‘8os arcade game that’s just climbing 8-bit buildings and punching them until they collapse over and over, has arrived. Dwayne Johnson stars as Davis Okoye, a handsome, charismatic primatologist who nevertheless prefers the company of his albino gorilla pal George to human companionship. Then something makes George grow to massive heights, prompting him to destroy downtown Chicago along with a similarly mutated wolf and a giant lizard that is legally not Godzilla. (Wink.)
With San Andreas director Brad Peyton at the helm, the odds of there being a cohesive plot to this film are...not great. But who needs plot when you’ve got CGI monsters and that sweet “Bullet With Butterfly Wings” needle drop, amiright bros? Anyhow, Naomie Harris, Malin Akerman, Joe Manganiello, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan in Negan mode also star.
Rampage will pump quarters into theaters everywhere on April 20, 2018.
