I used to love playing Rampage. It was a pretty standard and simple building destroying game where you played as the monsters. It wasn’t too involved, but Rampage was a great way to blow off some stress. Of all the video game movie possibilities, Rampage isn’t actually a bad idea. And with Dwayne Johnson starring it should prove to be pretty entertaining if the Rampage trailer is any indication.
Here’s the synopsis:
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 also stars Oscar nominee Naomie Harris (Moonlight), Malin Akerman (Billions), Jake Lacy (TV’s Girls), Joe Manganiello (True Blood) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Walking Dead); as well as P.J. Byrne (The Wolf of Wall Street), Marley Shelton (Solace), Breanne Hill (San Andreas), Jack Quaid (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), and Matt Gerald (Daredevil). Peyton directs from a screenplay by Ryan Engle and Carlton Cuse & Ryan J. Condal and Adam Sztykiel, story by Ryan Engle, based on the video game Rampage.
Now check out the trailer, which looks crazy:
Rampage comes to theaters April 20, 2018.
