The first trailer for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s upcoming film “Rampage” was released late Thursday.

The Hollywood News has the following plot details:

Primatologist Davis Okoye (Johnson), 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.

Fans of The Rock won’t be disappointed by the trailer. He once again seems to have found the perfect blend of humor, action, suspension and overall good time. It’s the formula that has made him arguably the most famous actor on the planet, and he didn’t abandon it for “Rampage.”

It certainly looks like it’s going to be an awesome film, judging from the electric trailer.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Joe Manganiello both also star in the film. It is currently slated to be released April 20, 2018.
