Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson can star in anything at this rate and it’ll draw big box office numbers. Well, almost anything — looking at you, Baywatch.
His next feature film centers around a popular arcade game from the 80s, Rampage.
In the trailer — which is below — we see Johnson care for our gentle giant, George. But something makes George go on a — ahem — rampage throughout the city.
Rampage is directed by San Andreas’ Brad Peyton, who worked with Johnson on the same film. However, this isn’t simply a disaster film — Rampage seems to be in the same vein as Kaiju films. There’s a large gorilla, wolf and crocodile.
It’s interesting to see actors Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Joe Manganiello take on roles, even if they’re generic.
The premise is so silly, but we’ll see if this is either mindless fun or just mindless.
Rampage debuts on April 20, 2018.
