Rampage trailer: You will believe a wolf can fly

Rampage Brad Peyton

Thirty-two years after the classic kaiju video game RAMPAGE first arrived in arcades, we're now less than three months from the release of a live-action cinematic adaptation. To help us prepare, a new, minute-long trailer has arrived online to show off more of the film's story, action, and creatures... including a giant wolf that can fly. I wasn't expecting that.

Directed by Brad Peyton from a screenplay by Ryan Engle, Carlton Cuse, Ryan Condal, and Adam Sztykiel, RAMPAGE stars Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as 

primatologist Davis Okoye, 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 transforms this gentle ape into a raging monster. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered alpha predators. As these newly created monsters 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.

Johnson is joined in the cast by Naomie Harris, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Malin Akerman, P.J. Byrne, Marley Shelton, Joe Manganiello, Jake Lacy, Breanne Hill, Jack Quaid, and Matt Gerald.

RAMPAGE looks like fun to me, and with other releases like TOMB RAIDER, PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING, BLACK PANTHER, and AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR coming up, I'm planning to spend a lot of time over the next four months sitting in theatres, watching blockbusters and munching popcorn.

The monsters of RAMPAGE will begin causing destruction on theatre screens as of April 20th.
