USA Today has released brand new photos for the upcoming video game adaptation, Rampage. Of course, the film stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and as a result, you can bet there will be plenty of action and comedy to spare. The trailer for the film is set to hit this Thursday, so stay tuned!

Check out the photos for the film below:

Rampage is directed by Brad Peyton, who you may recognize as the helmer of another Johnson film, San Andreas. Regarding this, Johnson told the outlet:

“You have to ratchet up the dial 10 times with Rampage. These monsters are relentless, and audiences are going to find that ride very exhilarating. As an actor in the movie, it’s fun and daunting. It’s 12- to 14-hour days of survival, and it’s not quiet survival either.”

Those are some big words. As dumb and ridiculous as San Andreas was, it was still quite the ride. But of course, Johnson is always talking up these movies like they’re the best thing ever. Regardless, Rampage does look to be a fun ride, and given that video game movies can use the help, we hope this one skews on the side of good more than it does bad.

The synopsis for Rampage 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.”

Rampage hits theaters on April 20, 2018.
