It’s The Rock vs. giant monsters in the latest Rampage trailer

Rampage Trailer #2 - Dwayne Johnson

The Rock is becoming one of the biggest movie stars in the world. So it’s only fitting that he takes on some of the biggest monsters in the world. Hot off of the success of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, The Rock is ready to take on an actual video game property. Based on the classic arcade game, Rampage pits The Rock versus giant monsters. But as the latest Rampage trailer shows, The Rock will be teaming up with one of the monsters. Check out the latest trailer for Rampage.

“Let me tell you something. Me and George… We get our asses kicked,” The Rock said in an Instagram post. “I mean I didn’t want to ruin it for you guys, but Jesus Christ. [laughs] But we don’t quit.”

Of course, it’s extremely difficult to adapt a video game into a movie. Many have tried and many have failed. Yet The Rock seems to have a good track record when it comes to films that he produces. As previously mentioned, we’ve already seen that in Jumanji so it’ll be interesting to see what he does with Rampage.

After all, in order to adapt a video game into a movie, you’re going to have to change up the story a bit. You also need to make it fun and exciting. What we’ve seen from the Rampage trailer is that The Rock has done all of that. Now, we don’t know if it’s going to be good but at least it’s a step in the right direction.

So what did you think of the trailer? Sound off with your thoughts in the comments section 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 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 destroys theaters on April 20th.
