The Rock is back, baby! Well, he was never really gone, but Dwayne Johnson is hotter than ever after Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle surprised everyone with its insane popularity and box office gross that just keeps climbing.
Next up for The Rock is Rampage, fittingly coming out on 4/20, even more loosely based on the video game series of the same name than his Jumanji sequel was to the children’s book. After all, one must add 90 minutes of story to turn a game where you play as a monster smashing cities into a feature length film.
But, never fret, fans of the ridiculous, because the latest TV spot for Rampage has a flying wolf. That’s right, the Rock, or his friend gorilla George turned horrible monster, will have to fight a flying wolf. A 4/20 release date indeed.

The official synopsis is below, as if this TV spot doesn’t show you all you need to know:
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 smashes into theaters on April 20, 2018.
I have a question for anyone who remembers the game better than me, could the wolf fly from one building to another in the game? Or was the game not ridiculous enough for these “brave” filmmakers? Let us know in the comment section below!
