YOU (South Africa) - - CHILL OUT -

RAM­PAGE

The movie tells the story of Ge­orge, a gen­tle go­rilla, and two other an­i­mals – a wolf and a crocodile – who morph into mon­sters af­ter a lab ex­per­i­ment goes wrong. They wreak havoc across the USA and it’s up to pri­ma­tol­o­gist Davis Okoye (Dwayne “The Rock” John­son) and Dr Kate Cald­will (Naomie Har­ris) to find an an­ti­dote to stop them.

The film is based on a video ar­cade game of the same name first re­leased in 1986.

It’s the fourth time The Rock and ac­tor Matt Ger­ald have teamed up for a movie – they pre­vi­ously ap­peared to­gether in GI Joe: Re­tal­i­a­tion, Faster and San An­dreas.

Like his char­ac­ter, The Rock is an an­i­mallover. He owns sev­eral dogs, in­clud­ing a French bull­dog named Hobbs, and horses.

The film­mak­ers de­cided Ge­orge would be an al­bino go­rilla to set him apart vis­ually from other go­rilla char­ac­ters in movies.
