Because of course there is.

Rampage is based on an arcade game from Midway that came out in the mid 1980s. Players control giant monsters; the goal is to tear down a city before being killed by the military that’s been called in to stop them. There’s not a lot there to make a movie out of, but… they’ve done it with Dwayne Johnson and director Brad Peyton (they worked on San Andreas together). This is going to be a monster movie of epic proportions.

Your eyes have not deceived you – you just saw a giant flying squirrel/wolf hybrid explode from a sky scraper. He’ll be joining the giant albino gorilla, and the lizard/croc the size of a cruise ship that was featured in the first trailer. That covers the original trio, but who knows if they’re going to add others to the mix.


I support this movie whole heartedly because, well, it’s good to have mindless action movies with giant CG monsters. It’s going to be dumb and wonderful – just be sure to leave any expectations at the door.

Rampage hits theaters April 20th.
