Sometimes you just need a movie about way too large animals and the love between a man and his albino gorilla friend named George. Okay, so the actual plot is more than that. Based on the popular 1980’s video game, Rampage stars Dwayne Johnson as Davis Okoye, a primatologist who saved George, the albino gorilla when George was two years old. As he tells Dr. Kate Caldwell (Naomie Harris), George would have never survived in the wild. Now George gets to live his life in relative safety with his best human friend, Okoye.
Unfortunately, George has a run in with a genetic experiment gone wrong, resulting in him turning into a huge, very not happy gorilla. Dr. Caldwell who is also a genetic engineer tries to work with Okoye to help George before the government decides to take terminal action. Not to be outdone, Rampage also features Burke (Joe Manganiello), the leader of a private military group, and Agent Russell (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), a shady government agent, and you just know the movie is going to be hilarious.
The 30-foot wolf is pretty cool too. Even better is that both leads are people of color. Rampage releases April 20, 2018.
(I feel really bad for George.) Also, don’t forget the giant crocodile.
