rampage trailer

Rampage, one of the most simplistic arcade games of all time, is now a giant event movie starring Dwayne Johnson. The world’s most charismatic movie star takes on a trio of giant animals (one of whom is his best buddy) in the video game adaptation, which is based on an experience that has no plot, no characters, and little do to beyond mash a button to smash buildings. Is this just crazy enough to work? Could this be the movie to finally break the dreaded video game adaptation curse?

Watch the first Rampage trailer below so you can muster an opinion.

Rampage first look

Update: The first poster for Rampage has arrived and we’ve added it to the post below.

Looking at a new photo of Dwayne Johnson standing in the rubble of a destroyed city, you’d be forgiven for thinking he’s on the set of San Andreas 2, the planned sequel to his earthquake disaster movie from 2015.

Dwayne Johnson vs. giant monsters? Yep, safe to say this one’s going to make some money.

It Chapter 2 turtle

Anyone who read Stephen King’s It probably noticed a couple of small references to a turtle in director Andy Muschietti‘s record-breaking movie adaptation, but the nods were so small that they almost certainly went over the heads of anyone coming into the story fresh. But according to the filmmaker, he’s planning on incorporating the turtle (a major figure in the novel’s bonkers mythology) in a much bigger way into It: Chapter 2. Buckle up: things are about to get interdimensional up in here.
