Geekery: ‘Rampage’ Continues to Look Awesome in New Trailer

Lizzie gets some sweet aircraft chomping scenes in this new trailer.

Rampage is based on an arcade game from Midway that came out in the mid 1980s.  There’s not a lot there to make a movie out of, but… they’ve done it, and it’s going to be a monster movie of epic proportions. The new trailer shows more destruction and some heart warming moments…

I approve of this giant gorilla/The Rock team up, as well as the airplane hors d’oeuvres. There’s not much else to say about this beyond: give me more gloriously goofy movies, please.

Rampage hits theaters April 20th.

    Movie based on a video game… check.
    Starring the Rock? Check.
    Zero chance of being a good movie? 100% certainty.
    I’ve seen some entertaining movies starring the Rock but I can’t say I’ve ever seen a *good* one. He’s even worse at choosing roles than Nick Cage.
    As for video game movies? I’m hard-pressed to think of a good one. But I do remember Mario Brothers, Pixels, Battleship, Street Fighter, Doom (wasn’t that another Rock movie?). Odds are not looking good here, people.

    • Nick

      He was great in Be Cool, and I’d say the Rundown was a decent movie. But nothing says a movie can’t be both terrible and incredibly entertaining.

      • HeadHunter

        I enjoyed the Rundown – but more for Seann William Scott and Christopher Walken.
        “Do you even understand… the CONcept… of the Tooth Fairy?”

    • EnTyme

      Check out Gridiron Gang. Johnson is pretty good actor if he’s given a decent script.

      • HeadHunter

        That’s a case of “Know Your Role” to use a wrestling catchphrase he’s no doubt familiar with. He’s not going to get a decent script when he does garbage like Tooth Fairy. 😀

        • EnTyme

          Even Sir Ben Kingsley occasionally does “A Sound of Thunder”.

    • Rahl

      Movie is supposed to be fun and entertaining, not good. If they were going for good, they wouldn’t have made it based off of an old game in the first place.

    Rock! Gorilla! Destruction! Yup, I’ll be getting a ticket. I hope that George can do smoldering intensity.

      God that had me good at Jumanji!

    I used to love playing Rampage on the Sinclair ZX Spectrum as a small boy in the 80s..
    Climbing up and smashing buildings, eating people out of windows and punching helicopters. Good memories.
