‘Skyscraper’ Trailer & Poster Features Dwayne Johnson Jumping the Shark

skyscraper

Universal has released the full length trailer for ‘Skyscraper‘, and it sure is a doozie. We saw the first glimpses of the Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson-led parody homage to 1980’s action movies in the film’s Super Bowl Trailer just a few days ago, but now the first full-length trailer gives a better look at what’s to come with ‘Skyscraper‘. The film stars The Rock as a U.S. war veteran how now serves as a security expert for skyscrapers. In a stunning turn of events, Johnson’s Will Ford and his family are trapped atop the world’s tallest building when it catches ablaze.

All kidding aside, the film has been described as a mixture of ‘Die Hard‘ and ‘The Towering Inferno‘, the film seems to be exactly what you would expect from a Johnson-led movie called ‘Skyscraper’. At this point, what really sells me is the self-aware tone that this trailer seems to embrace wholeheartedly, and it seems like a fun summer action romp. The film was both directed and written by Rawson M. Thurber–who wrote and directed ‘Central Intelligence‘, along with directing ‘We’re the Millers‘ and ‘Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story‘. This trailer looks absolutely ridiculous, in the best way possible. Not only does it feature the big screen return of Neve Campbell, but it also does a good job of setting up Johnson’s character as someone who we can root for on a primal level.

In addition to Campbell and Johnson, the film stars Chin Han, Roland Møller, Pablo Schreiber, Byron Mann, Hannah Quinlivan, and Noah Taylor. ‘Skyscraper’ opens on July 13th, 2018. Here’s the trailer, along with the official synopsis for ‘Skyscraper’ below:

Global icon Dwayne Johnson leads the cast of Legendary’s Skyscraper as former FBI Hostage Rescue Team leader and U.S. war veteran Will Ford, who now assesses security for skyscrapers. On assignment in China he finds the tallest, safest building in the world suddenly ablaze, and he’s been framed for it. A wanted man on the run, Will must find those responsible, clear his name and somehow rescue his family who is trapped inside the building…above the fire line.
