When I was growing up I wasn’t much of the video game kid. I did have a Colecovision system and a score of games never this one called “Rampage” which is what this upcoming 2018 film is based on. It stars “The Rock” and looks like it could be some quirky giant monster fun. Check out the trailer below.
The Plot: Primatologist Davis Okoye (Dwayne Johnson), a man who keeps people at a distance, shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent, albino silverback gorilla who has been in his care most of its life. But a mysterious genetic experiment mutates this once gentle ape into a raging creature of enormous size. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered that a wolf (Ralph) and crocodile (Lizzie) have gone under similar changes. As these newly created apex predators battle each other for supremacy and tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer (Naomie Harris) to secure an antidote, fight his way through the ever-changing battlefield, and not only to halt a global catastrophe, but to save the fearsome beast that was once his friend. (thanks Wiki).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I have to admit that this one looks like it might be a lot of fun but am not sure I will see it in the early theatrical run if at all during that time. It’s too early to decide ones 2nd quarter 2018 plans when we still have two months to go in 2017 after all. I will say though that with about eight or more superhero films already on my mental agenda that this might be difficult. The trailer is fun though and seems to have some thrills in it. What did you readers think about this one? Did it spark your interest? If so you know what to do and where to say it.
