Dwayne Johnson Faces Giant Creatures in 'Rampage' Trailer - Watch Now!
The film will be released on April 20, 2018.
Johnson plays primatologist Davis Okoye, a man who generally shuns human friendship but has formed a powerful bond with an exceptionally intelligent silverback gorilla named George that he has cared for since birth.
