The time for giant apes is on us again. The video adaptation of Rampage has wrapped production according to star Dwayne Johnson. The movie, which is set for an April 2018 release date, began back in May. Johnson has been documenting the experience with a ton of set photos and, as is common with his instagram post, plenty of background to those photos as well. The one he posted today says that the movie has wrapped and thanking his co-stars for their hard work.
Johnson also has a few more set photos on his instagram from the production.
Rampage will now move onto post production and getting all of the special effects ready. The movie has been shot with motion capture and the studio will spend the next few months bringing a bunch of giant animals and monsters to life. We can expect our first look at Rampage by the late summer to the fall.
Summary: 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.
Rampage, directed by Brad Peyton, stars Dwayne Johnson, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Naomie Harris, Malin Akerman, and Joe Manganiello. It will be released on April 20th, 2018.
