80s’ Video Game Classic Goes Live Action!
In a day and age where a smartphone emoticon can become a feature film, it makes perfect sense for Hollywood to adapt a mid-eighties coin-op into a high concept blockbuster.
Helmed by Brad Peyton, the director responsible for 2015 disaster actioner, SAN ANDREAS, RAMPAGE stars Peyton regular Dwayne Johnson along with Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Naomie Harris.
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 mutates this gentle ape into a raging creature of enormous size. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered animals. As these newly created alpha predators 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.
RAMPAGE opens in Australian cinemas on Thursday April 12, 2018.
