The first trailer for Dwayne Johnson’s Rampage adaptation has hit, and it looks about as ridiculous as you would expect a big-budget adaptation of a popular smash-up arcade game to be.
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 stars Dwayne Johnson, Oscar nominee Naomie Harris (Moonlight), Malin Akerman (Watchmen), Jake Lacy (Girls), Joe Manganiello (True Blood) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Walking Dead). It’s set to hit theaters on April 20, 2018.

Illumination has had incredible success the last couple of years, with their series of animated movies setting box office records worldwide.
However, the film could be a ways off, as the studio is currently focusing all of its efforts on the upcoming Minions 2, giving them plenty of time to flesh out a great story.
The long-awaited Metal Gear Solid adaptation is finally gaining some traction after director Jordan Vogt Roberts (Kong: Skull Island) had been attached to the film. Now, it has a scribe with writer Derek Connolly (Jurassic World) taking on the duties.
