Warner Bros. has just released a new promo for their monster pic, Rampage, starring Dwayne Johnson, and when you have The Rock out there pimping your film, not just any promo will do.
In this particular case, the clip starts out with Johnson filming himself at the gym (you know, the place where he likely spends upwards of four hours a day) introducing the clip. Yes, he films the clip vertically, but I try my best not to hold it against him. In true Rock form, he plays up his character’s badass nature before the promo goes on to label his character as the “crazy brown, baldheaded, tattoed man running for his motherf#$%#& life.”
Johnson then tells them to play the “no fear” clip, which the studio does not do. Regardless, Johnson assures audiences they will have a good time.
Below is the official synopsis for Rampage:
“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 mutates this gentle ape into a raging creature of enormous size. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered animals. As these newly created alpha predators 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 bounds into theaters on April 13, 2018.
