Skyscraper – Trailer 1 – Dwayne Johnson

Skyscraper Skyscraper sees Dwayne Johnson doing for The Towering Inferno what San Andreas did for Earthquake. However, while I know the filmmakers won’t have intended there to be any comparisons, I can’t see this doing massively well in London following last June’s Grenfell Tower disaster.

There’s no precise plot details yet known, other than it being a hostage-action-thriller set in China, but as is shown in the trailer, The Rock has been in the army, had his leg blown off, and Sean Harris (Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation) is the bad guy, but whatever problems the former faces, nothing will stop him leaping to a certain death from a crane, high up somewhere… and, of course, he’ll survive.

Oh, and spot the obvious Die Hard rip-off moment!!!

I’ve never heard of writer/director Rawson Marshall Thurber before, but Hollywood must have as they’ve signed him up to a Cannonball Run remake, and a sequel to We’re The Millers.

Skyscraper is released in the UK on July 13th.

Also stars: Pablo Schreiber, Neve Campbell, Roland Møller, Kevin Rankin, Byron Mann, Chin Han, Paul McGillion
