Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for the video game adaptation of Rampage starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
In the film directed by Brad Peyton (San Andreas), Johnson plays Primatologist Davis Okoye, the best friend to George, a highly intelligent ape who is genetically altered after an experiment goes wrong resulting in the beast going on a rampage along with similarly altered predators. The original 1986 Midway arcade game took players across the United States as they destroyed key landmarks while trying to survive an onslaught from military forces as they controlled a giant ape, a giant wolf, or a giant lizard.
You can check out the first trailer for Rampage below.
The film also stars Naomi Harris, Joe Manganiello, Marley Shelton, Jake Lacy, Breanne Hil, P.J. Byrne, Jack Quaid and Matt Gerald as well as Malin Akerman and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Here’s the official 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 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.
Rampage is currently slated to hit theaters on April 20, 2018.
