This movie's actually pretty fun.

Allegedly.

For what it's worth, it tested better than Justice League.

Did it study harder?

If it doesn't end with the monsters turning back into humans naked and then running offscreen awkwardly covering their privates, I'm calling bullshit.

The Rock fights a giant monkey.
Can’t say I care about Rampage, but I will go and pretend it’s a Donkey Kong movie.

This will still have a giant werewolf, right? I mean, it's gotta.
post #9 of 36
Confirmed: It has a giant wolf.

oooh from the director of sanandreas!

The trailer won my heart. I will overturn my temporary ban on video game movies.

can you elaborate?

I like how the rampagers are big, but not so big that they're no longer cuddly.
post #14 of 36
Hey, where are the little naked people shuffling off screen while hiding their shame? This isn't "Rampage"!

I kid. It looks like fun.

Pretty disappointed this isn't a movie about three people that transform into Not-King Kong, Not-Godzilla, and a giant blue werewolf that go around knowingly destroying cities and eating people. This seems like a way less fun version of a Rampage movie than it could have been. This seems like they're going to want us to care about the monsters, what with them being normal animals who were just turned big, one of which was cared for by The Rock, and whose personality is being effected by whatever it is going on.

Loved playing this in the arcade and had no interest whatsoever in the film.

But now that I see they went more RISE/APES than PACIFIC RIM, I’m in.

Oh, no. Kate found the thread.

RIP thread.

It's got a hint of de Bont's early 90's Godzilla treatment to it.

Approve.

 It has monsters going nuts in a city, so odds are I'll see it. I was a big fan of the game as a kid. Of course I always played Not Godzilla.

Yeah, it's pretty lame.

Not really into them seemingly not all being bipedal either.
post #22 of 36

I mean, you buy the rights to a video game so you get the name recognition, the premise is amusing and simple, let's make this GRIM AND GRITTY!

post #23 of 36
One of them better ride in on a giant blimp after seemingly being killed earlier in the movie.
post #24 of 36
Even with a full-fledged trailer, I’m still considering this a Photoshop parody. There’s no way I live in a universe that actually produced a Rampage feature film.
post #25 of 36
I'm finding it hilarious, but intriguing, that the trailer is selling me a movie that takes the characters that much more seriously than the game did. Johnson has done feature length films where he did less acting than he did in that two and a half minute trailer. I could go watch this.
post #26 of 36
"What's happening to my friend?" Heartfelt.
post #27 of 36
I wonder at what point the writer was playing the game where they were like "I think we can touche their hearts with this movie"?
post #28 of 36

Hard pass.

post #29 of 36

I'm calling bullshit if this doesn't have H. Jon Benjamin screaming the titular line.

 

 

"Cry havoc and let slip the hogs of war!"
"Dogs of war."
"WHATEVER FARM ANIMALS OF WAR, LANA."

CONTROVERSIAL OPINION: I'm pretty bored of giant moneys running around breaking things. 

post #31 of 36

Well, duh. That's why the film also has a giant wolf, a huge crocodile and Dwayne Johnson. That's why these are called "four quadrant films".

post #32 of 36

I couldn't believe the trailer for this was real when I saw it tonight.

 

WUT

CONTROVERSIAL OPINION: I'm also pretty tired of monsters that are just insects or animals which are bigger than normal.  Give a man some Cthulhu-weirdness here, won't ya?

...like Dwayne Johnson?

 

Non-controversial opinion: I will be very disappointed if the third act of this film doesn't involve a giant Dwayne Johnson destroying a city.

From the trailer I fear this movie won't be fun enough to have Johnson grow big a destroy a city.

Yeah I see what I wrote.
