As with any Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson project, social media has been the constant source of news for his films. The silver screen adaptation of late-’80s video game Rampage has been no different. Via Johnson’s official Instagram account Monday, the star let everyone know that production has officially wrapped on the film.
In the post, Johnson does nothing but praise his co-star Naomie Harris. The actress was most recently seen last year in Collateral Beauty alongside Will Smith, but Johnson makes it a point to note that Harris was also Oscar nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her work in Moonlight, which won Best Picture.

Here I'm counting the reasons my partner in chaos, the Oscar nominated @naomieharris was a dream to work with on our final day of #Rampage. Her performance in our movie was fantastic and I'm a lucky man to share the screen with such a classy, high quality (and bad ass) woman. That's an official wrap on the production of #Rampage. Thank you Naomie for your commitment and trust in me and our project. Luv ya sistah and next time I'll have an explanation on why I have an Amtrak train of a vein running thru my horse neck. #OfficialWrap #Rampage #TheOneAndOnly #NaomieHarris
Johnson thanks Harris for her commitment to the project as well as her trust in him, which is pretty key when even fans of the video game would never have imagined Rampage coming to life — let alone the potential of a franchise, which is always a possibility when having Johnson onboard.
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 transforms this gentle ape into a raging monster. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered alpha predators. As these newly created monsters 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.
Directed by Brad Peyton, Rampage stars Johnson, Harris, Joe Manganiello, Marley Shelton, Jake Lacy, Breanne Hil, P.J. Byrne, Jack Quaid, Matt Gerald, Malin Akerman and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
Rampage will be released in theaters on April 20, 2018.
5 Ways To Make The ‘Shazam’ Movie Relatable & Engaging
The DC Extended Universe is set to expand to new heights in the next few years. Not only will we see the Justice League hit the big screen this year, but we also have exciting movies like Dark Universe and Shazam coming soon.
Shazam — a.k.a. Captain Marvel, though I doubt DC will ever call him that again — is a perfect character to bring to the big screen. The dark, gritty vibe of the DCEU works for characters like Batman or the Suicide Squad, but Shazam deserves something a bit more bright and lively.
The story of Billy Batson walking into a magical world and gaining both the powers of distinct mythical deities and the appearance of a strong adult, He-Man style, is perfect for the big screen. But, as with a lot of superheroes, the trick is making them relatable, and Shazam, with his magic and transformative powers, could be the trickiest of all.
