Rampage Trailer #2


With Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle closing in on $900 million worldwide, it’s starting to feel like Dwayne Johnson can turn just about anything into a box office hit (Baywatch notwithstanding). Still, he’s got his work cut out for him if he wants to spin gold from this upcoming adaptation of the ’80s arcade game Rampage. The movie is directed by Brad Peyton (San Andreas) and it finds Dwayne Johnson playing a primatologist who befriends an intelligent silverback gorilla. But when his buddy George gets mutated into a giant monster along with a crocodile and flying (?) wolf, he is forced to become the action star we always knew he could be. Rampage co-stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Malin Akerman, Joe Manganiello, Naomie Harris and Jake Lacy and it hits theatres on April 20th. Check out the new trailer after the jump and see what you think.

    Dwayne is making some $$!

    Looks like a second-tier cross between:

    King Kong (obviously)
    Godzilla (obviously)
    The new Planet of the Apes movies
    Jumani 2: Welcome to the Jungle
    San Andreas (not surprising)

    All in all, looks like a huge waste of time and money.

    On a related note, is it just me, or does this feel like a parody movie from Tropic Thunder?
    Please tell me it’s some sort of comedy (it’s directed by the guy who did Dodgeball).
