Sometimes, it feels like Hollywood enters a bunch of random words into the greatest Create-A-Movie Mad Lib of all time and decides to make whatever comes out the other end, and in this instance, we have Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson fighting “flying bats” in the middle of “whatever city” while he chases a “building-sized gorilla.” Life is awesome.
Rampage is based on a video game series from about 15 years ago. In the series, humans are transformed into giant monsters thanks to genetic testing and made to go around the world destroying things. It’s so much fun. That’s not what the movie is about, but the movie is going to be so much fun, too, if the new trailer is any indication.
Falling buildings? Check. Apes using support beams to bludgeon flying wolves? Check. The Rock saying quippy little lines to a strong and assertive-seeming female lead? Check.
Rampage is going to be awesome. You bring the popcorn, we’ll bring the cookie dough bites.
