There's Another Videogame Movie On The Way.. And Yes, Dwayne Johnson's Involvedby

Is Dwayne Johnson the most employed actor in Hollywood right now? Maybe so – while 2016 certainly seemed to be the year of Idris Elba, the former WWE superstar has certainly made his mark on cinema over the past year or so – with so many different projects lining up before him that it’s a wonder he finds time for himself! A trailer has landed this week for yet another Johnson project – following on from his forthcoming turn in the Jumanji reworking this holiday season – as he takes on a movie upgrade of a beloved arcade classic.

Rampage is a game which has caught on in a big way – literally – long after its initial release – meaning that, of course, it was always prime for a movie upgrade at some point. The game surrounded three people who became hulking Godzilla-esque monsters after being exposed to odd chemicals – and the movie, while swaying slightly from the original plotline, seems to be instead focusing on the same big monster mayhem. It is fairly bizarre that a game that is considered so cult is getting the movie treatment – what’s next – Dig Dug? Though – in all fairness – Stranger Things has already covered that a fair bit on Netflix!

Johnson is playing a primatologist who is best friends with an intelligent silverback named George – but when George is subject to a sinister experiment, he grows to a colossal size – as do several other creatures, hell bent on destroying the world around them. It’s up to Johnson – and Naomie Harris – to try and bring down the gargantuan goliaths for good. It’s ultimately set to be a monster movie with a difference – think King Kong meets Godzilla a few times over – and whether or not it will prove a smash hit with audiences as well as critics remains to be seen. On its release, we will of course let you know if Rampage is worth seeing!

Movie adaptations of videogames never really do well with critics – but in a week where Super Mario Bros is reportedly due to return to the big screen in the form of an animated adaptation, the news of Rampage’s release next year could be, again, a chance for the videogame/movie stigma to be reversed. So far, Angry Birds holds the title of the best-rated videogame adaptation on Rotten Tomatoes – which, with a middling score, sadly says little. Keep your eyes peeled for Rampage next year!
