Second Trailer for The Rock’s RAMPAGE Is Here!

Second Trailer for The Rock’s RAMPAGE Is Here!

Warner Bros. is ramping up publicity (get it) for the upcoming, highly-anticipated The Rock movie, Rampage. A few weeks after the first trailer dropped, we are now treated to a much-longer, plot-revealing second trailer, which you can catch below.

If the beginning of the 2:26 Rampage clip looks a lot like Jumanji to you, we can’t blame you. Given the stunning run of success for that film, we expected that Warner Bros. would essentially make Rampage look like a sequel to the Sony movie.

Still, after a few jungle scenes and some jokes, the similarities quickly end. In this film, The Rock is a paleontologist (don’t laugh) who has befriended a monkey named George (Ok, you can laugh). This ape is friendly but becomes bigger and bigger under the sneaky auspices of what is called, apparently, project Rampage, led by a sneering Jeffrey Dean Morgan. The Ape at some point becomes unleashed, but has to face off a lizard of equally elephantine proportions, setting a city destruction sequence coupled with cops and helicopters shooting that is clearly meant to emulate the videogame on which the movie is based.

The movie is slated for an April 20, 2018 release, and also stars Naomie Harris (Moonlight) and Joe Manganiello. Check out the full trailer and let us know your thoughts!
