Dwayne Johnson led Rampage’s trailer is finally out, and it looks grand. The movie slated for release in April 2018 is about a gorilla that sets out on a city rampage.
Inspired by the 1986 arcade game Rampage, the movie looks quite promising from its trailer. Talking about the Bally Midway game, ‘Rampage’ on which the flick is based, it can be said that it was quite a rage. Players in the game need to control a monster trio that sets out on a city destruction mission. So, the players can earn points by eating people, destructing buildings, and smashing military vehicles. Various spin-offs, releases, and sequels of the game Rampage are out across a number of consoles, which speak for the popularity of the game.

The visuals of the movie as witnessed in the trailers look really compelling. And the standard of visual-affects you see is also above par. This movie is going to be a real treat for kids as well as adults, which is pretty much evident from the theme on which the flick is based- a good gorilla turning hostile.
Similar productions in the past-
We have seen numerous films in the past based on this theme, and none has ever failed to impress the audience. Let’s take for instance King Kong, a 1933 American pre-Code monster adventure movie produced and directed by Ernest B. Schoedsack and Merian C. Cooper, which generated impressive box office receipts. It went on to become so popular that several remakes of the film were also launched in subsequent times. The film King Kong got universal acclaim on its first release and all re-releases.
Rampage is expected to create a similar impression on the audience. And because the cast looks so promising, there is no reason why one should not expect a lot from this film. Starring Dwayne Johnson, Malin Akerman, Marley Shelton, Naomie Harris, Jake Lacy, Joe Manganiello, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Rampage is a production of New Line Cinema and has a 30-feet-long wolf to watch out for, besides the giant ape.
It will be really exhilarating to watch rampage in the theatres. For follow-ups and latest updates on this movie, you can definitely come back. We have more in store for you!
