New Line Cinema’s video game to film adaptation of Rampage will be arriving one week earlier than previously announced.
 

 
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson stars in the film directed by Brad Peyton who he worked together with on San Andreas. Oscar nominee Naomie Harris (Moonlight), Malin Akerman (Billions), Jake Lacy (Girls), Joe Manganiello (True Blood), Jeffrey Dean Morgan ( The Walking Dead), P.J. Byrne (Final Destination 5), Marley Shelton (Solace), Breanne Hill (San Andreas), Jack Quaid (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), and Matt Gerald (Daredevil) co-star.
In the film, “Primatologist Davis Okoye (Johnson), a man who keeps people at a distance, shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent, silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth.  But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry transforms this gentle ape into a raging monster.  To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered alpha predators. As these newly created monsters tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer 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.
 

 
Ryan Engle and Adam Sztykiel penned the script based on the story by Ryan Engle, inspired by the video game “Rampage”. VFX supervisor Colin Strause (San Andreas) along with five-time Academy Award-winning visual effects company Weta Digital (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) brought the creatures in the film to life.
Rampage was scheduled to open in theaters on April 20, 2018, but will now be released on April 13th.
