We knew that Warner Bros. Pictures were releasing the Rampage movie trailer today, and now the first footage of the upcoming Hollywood blockbuster is out in the world. The film, which is based upon the hit Midway arcade title of the same name, stars Dwayne Johnson as a primatologist named Davis Okoye, who is friends with an intelligent silverback gorilla named George. Sadly, a genetic experiment has caused George, and other animals, to grow into huge monsters that can’t control themselves. Naturally, it’s up to The Rock to save the world. It all sounds amazing, and the trailer definitely doesn’t disappoint when it comes to delivering action.
Check out the Rampage movie trailer below:
Here’s the official description of the upcoming film courtesy of Warner Bros. Pictures:
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 is set to release on April 20, 2018 (yes, 4/20) in movie theaters worldwide.
