Skyscraper trailer

Update: After the Super Bowl TV spot, Universal debuted the full Skyscraper trailer on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon. Check it out below, and our original article follows.

Nothing can stop Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, not even a really, really big building. In Skyscraper, Johnson plays a muscular man who assesses security for skyscrapers. As bad luck would have it, some nefarious fiend has set the tallest building in the world on fire, and framed Johnson for the deed. Big mistake. The Skyscraper Super Bowl spot shows off all this blockbuster madness as we wait for a full trailer later tonight.

Skyscraper poster

Why yes, that is Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson attempting to leap from a giant crane into a shattered open window of a huge building. And no, his new summer blockbuster Skyscraper is not set in the same universe as the Fast and Furious movies (that we know of). This is an entirely separate action film in which an outlandish decision like this is justified and rewarded, and I can’t wait to see if the Super Bowl trailer that’s coming this weekend lives up to the preposterous promise this poster holds.

Take a look at the full-size Skyscraper poster below, because it somehow gets even more ridiculous when you see the entire thing.

You may have read about Dwayne Johnson‘s insane workout routine that starts from the wee hour of 5:00 a.m. and involves 40,000 pounds of workout equipment. But when Johnson is on a movie set — which he is a lot — how does he maintain his arduous workout routine? By bringing the gym to him, of course. You can’t look like the Rock without rocking a small portable gym that offers the full services of a proper recreational center.

Skyscraper synopsis

Here’s something I didn’t see coming: Scream star Neve Campbell has signed on to star in Skyscraper, the new Dwayne Johnson-led action film from Dodgeball and Central Intelligence director Rawson Marshall Thurber. Plus, there’s a new synopsis that fills in a bit more of the movie’s plot, which involves Johnson’s character’s quest to rescue his family from a burning building.

On the surface, a report about Dwayne Johnson signing on to star in another big action movie is about as unsurprising as movie news can get. Of course The Rock has joined another new movie because that’s what The Rock does – he fills every square inch of his available schedule with another movie he wants to shoot. However, it’s the little details that make Skyscraper sound like an interesting project to keep your eye on. Not because of plot (details are scarce), but because this is one of those films that sounds like it will be carefully constricted to appeal to an international audience. This is what the future of mainstream moviemaking looks like.
