Watch the First Trailer for the Rampage Movie Starring The Rock

From Retro Gaming to the Big Screen... It's the First Trailer for RAMPAGE

From Retro Gaming to the Big Screen... It's the First Trailer for RAMPAGE

Johnson stars as Davis Okoyea, a primate expert who prefers animals to people ("Animals get me", he quips at the outset of the preview), and his best bud is a white ape named, yes, George.

Warner Bros. has just dropped the official trailer for Rampage, the forthcoming Brad Peyton-directed film based on the video game of the same name.

Like his friend George, a silverback gorilla who's grown dozens of feet in a matter of days.

"That was really eye-opening for me in terms of how dangerously close we are to having these lovely animals extinct", says Johnson, who adopted a baby silverback at the zoo.

In the movie, Dwayne Johnson plays the character of a primatologist David Okoye, who shares a special connection with some giant monsters. If they like you, they lick you.


Thanks to an experimental serum gone wrong, George and other creatures grow enormous and go on a path of destruction in Rampage, an adaptation of the 1980s video game that's also grounded in real gene-editing science. When they don't like you, they eat you.

Watch the first Rampage trailer below so you can muster an opinion.

Rampage is set to open on April 20, 2018.

Rampage stars Dwayne Johnson, Oscar nominee Naomie Harris (Moonlight), Malin Akerman (TV's Billions), Jake Lacy (TV's Girls), Joe Manganiello (TV's True Blood) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (TV's 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 (TV's Daredevil). The screenplay is by Ryan Engle and Adam Sztykiel, and the story by Ryan Engle. To make matters worse, it's soon discovered there are other similarly altered animals.
