If you follow Mr Johnson on Twitter, lets face it we all do, you will know that man is a marketing genius, also just delightful, anyway back to the point – today he just released the first poster for his upcoming film Rampage. Rampage is the big screen adaptation of the cult video game of the same name. In the original game you could play as George, a King Kong-like gigantic gorilla transformed by an experimental vitamin, Lizzie, a Godzilla-like dinosaur/lizard transformed by a radioactive lake, and Ralph, a giant werewolf transformed by a food additive. It involved a lot of city smashing and to this day is still one of my all time favourite arcade games. Will it make an Oscar winning film, probably not, will it make a fun filled action romp, most likely, in the end Dwayne had this to say about the poster:
This is my best friend, George. A rare gigantic albino Silverback.
I love animals because they’re honest. If they like you, they lick you. If they don’t, they eat you.
Our #RAMPAGEMovie trailer drops TOMORROW at 5PM EST/2PM PST.
