Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has roughly half a million projects in development, production or post-production, and one of those projects is Rampage, based on the video game of the same name.

The film is set to hit theaters this coming April, but when could we expect a first trailer? Trailer Track has confirmed that the trailer has been rated by the Manitoba Film Classification Board, and as such, is likely to hit the web within the next week or so!

Rampage’s synopsis is below:

“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.”

In true Dwayne Johnson form, we expect this to be a ridiculous, over-the-top action film with an added dose of comedy to it (given the source material). It’s not exactly a video game fans have been clamoring to see hit the silver screen, but who knows? Perhaps it’ll be the break to the video game curse we need.

    I saw the trailer for this while doing an online movie survey. It actually looked like a lot of fun! (Just saying that is probably breaking some kind of NDA, lol.) Very reminiscent in tone to Kong: Skull Island. The trailer mostly focuses on The Rock and him trying to defend his giant gorilla pal, with the wolf positioned as the villainous monster, and the lizard shows up at the end in a clear homage to Godzilla.
