God, I love me some Dwayne Johnson. No, his movies won’t be winning any Oscars, but when it comes to pure escapism, he knows what’s up. It looks like it won’t be any different — something we kind of already knew based on the name Skyscraper. The trailers have already done a pretty solid job of driving that point home, and in this final one, it REALLY drives it home.
In the scene, we see Johnson’s character break open the window in the skyscraper and make his way along the outside. He gets to some sort of revolving generator (at least what I assume is a generator), which he jumps through. The timing couldn’t be worse though, and an explosion goes off, prompting him to jump once again to the other side, where he catches another piece of rope. One thing leads to another, and he’s left dangling by his prosthetic leg, which he’s able to grab before we cut to what is essentially a sizzle reel of shots from the film.
Below is the official synopsis for Skyscraper:
“Global icon Dwayne Johnson leads the cast of Legendary’s Skyscraper as former FBI Hostage Rescue Team leader and U.S. war veteran Will Ford, who now assesses security for skyscrapers. On assignment in China he finds the tallest, safest building in the world suddenly ablaze, and he’s been framed for it. A wanted man on the run, Will must find those responsible, clear his name and somehow rescue his family who is trapped inside the building…above the fire line.”
All in all, if you already weren’t sold on this film, this trailer won’t do much, but if you were, then it’ll likely drive that point home.
