Naomie Harris stars alongside Dwayne Johnson in 2018's Rampage, an adaptation of a popular 1980s video game featuring mutated apes and monsters which destroy cities.
Directed by Brad Peyton, Rampage tells the story of Primatologist Davis Okoye (Johnson), a man who keeps people at a distance yet shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth. However, a rogue genetic experiment gone awry mutates this gentle ape into a raging creature of enormous size. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered animals on the loose. As these newly created alpha predators tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams up with a discredited genetic engineer (Harris) to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield not only to halt a global catastrophe, but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.
While the end-of-the-world genre doesn't lend itself to critical acclaim, the trailer promises an hour and a half of good old monster-hunting – and who wouldn't want to watch that? Rampage is released April 2018.
