Skyscraper is scheduled to release on July the 13th, 2018, and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s is attracting a lot of appreciation (and a little mockery at the same time) worldwide. Popular for his over the top, power-packed action movies. Do you remember, San Andreas? Even if the movie trailer showcases him leaping impossible jumps (for which the internet has had a field day) to save his family perched up the literal burning skyscraper for which Johnson plays security manager, nonetheless, The Rock is set to make an impact.
Rock is an ex FBI Hostage Rescue Team Leader but has retired because he lost half a leg. He is being framed for the fire and must therefore also clear his name. A framed guy on the run, he must be very careful in order to save his family trapped in the skyscraper gone up in flames, just above the fire line. This hostage-action-thriller plot happens in China, and the movie’s cast includes Neve Campbell, Chin Chan, Noah Taylor and Raylond Moller to name a few.
It, generally, does not require a movie to make sense for it to be a smash hit especially if it is a Dwayne Johnson movie – San Andreas is a live example; so there is no literal competition to Skyscraper apart from Rampage, which releases a few months before.
The Skyscraper is written and directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber and produced by Beau Flynn and Johnson himself apart from Thurber and Hiram Garcia. Flynn and Garcia have been the producers for San Andreas and Central Intelligence together before too.
The film is going to be released by Universal Pictures.
