Plot Details Emerge About Monster Video Game Adaptation Rampage

According to SplashReport.com, the plot details to Brad Peyton’s upcoming monster video game Rampage adaptation have leaked.

The film (based on the 1986 Bally-Midway arcade game) is reportedly about a privately owned space station that is conducting secret experiments, and when the station is destroyed, “Three canisters from the crash land on Earth. One lands in the gorilla enclosure at the San Diego Zoo, the other in the plains of Wyoming and the last one in the Florida Everglades. The Griffin Technologies Group, headed by two siblings (Malin Akerman and Jake Lacy), tries to destroy any evidence of wrongdoing before the government finds out. It’s too late because the canisters have infected a gorilla named George, a wolf in Wyoming and an alligator. They start evolving and growing exponentially. To cover their track, the Griffin idiots decided to unleash a beacon that will make all three large animals head toward one destination: their head office located in the Willis Tower in Chicago.”

This simple excuse to allow giant monsters to destroy Chicago also stars Dwayne Johnson as an”ex-marine who’s now a primatologist that raised George(the ape) at the San Diego Zoo. He taught the ape sign language, and they share a special bond.”

Although the website believes that the “Rampage video game movie makes San Andreas look like Moonlight”, we’ll have to see if Rampage can satisfy kaiju fans, break the dreaded video game movie curse, and turn a profit at the box office.

Rampage is scheduled to be released on April 20, 2018 just before the official kick-off of the summer blockbuster season.  Stay tuned to the Horror News Network for more monstrous updates as they happen.
