I AM THE BAD PHOTOSHOP EFFECT!

From Slash film

The movie opens with a privately owned space station being destroyed thanks to some kind of mysterious experiment that was being done on board. In the wake of the destruction, three canisters from the experiment somehow end up falling all the way to Earth. One of the canisters falls into a gorilla enclosure at the San Diego Zoo, another lands in the plains of Wyoming and the final one ends up in the Florida Everglades. You can already see where this is going.

The experiment that was being conducted hails from The Griffin Technologies Group, a company owned by two siblings played by Malin Akerman and Jake Lacy. Looking to ensure the government doesn’t link their company to any of the work they were doing on the space station, they try to destroy the evidence at the crash sites. But of course, the contents of the canisters have already caused a gorilla named George, a wolf and an alligator to start evolving, growing at frighteningly exponential rate. So how can they cover this up now?

The Griffin siblings concoct a genius plan to use a beacon that attracts each of the creatures to their head office, ensuring that all evidence of their experiments will be destroyed. It just so happens that their head office is located in Willis Tower in Chicago, which won’t bode so well for the residents of the Windy City.[/b]




From Dwayne "The Rock "Johnson  instagram post



 I head up an anti poaching unit out of Rwanda. My best friend is a rare albino gorilla named, George. Very bad people infect George, an alligator and a wolf with a serum. All three animals grow at an unprecedented rate. Their size, speed, agility and violent aggression is off the charts. They go on a deadly rampage and want to destroy the world. George not happy. Me not happy. When animals like you, they lick you. When they don't like you, they kill you. I will hunt down the bad people who did this to my best friend. And when I find them, I will not lick them. We have the best VFX monster making team (WETA) on the planet. Our actors and crew have been working very hard to raise the monster genre bar. As always, let's have some fun. Let's shoot.

So a few things to be gleaned from the information at hand.  One is that it sounds like their making George the "good monster" of the moive with Lizzie and Ralph being more on the chaotic evil side.

And for as little story the games have...its strange they do end up changing one of the elements that's been in pretty much every Rampage game.  Namely George, Lizzie, and Ralph aren't mutated animals...they're mutated people.  

The movie's in production now and is scheduled for release in 2018.  Very little design work has been revealed, outside a few shots of props and people's costumes.  So no look at the three daikaiju yet.

Wait, this is a real thing?

That was such a characteristically Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson post that I just assumed it must be a pastiche.

We may have gotten our first look at one of the monsters.  While filming, The Rock celebrated his birthday, and this was the picture on the cake.


Plot details do say this version of George is supposed to be albino.

I don't get why this is even being made.  Making a movie about Rampage is like making a movie about the board game Battleship.

And yet they made that too and someone wants to make a trilogy of Tetris movies.

Tetris could make for a good movie, if they focused on it's development and all the trouble Nintendo, Tengen, and other companies had bringing it to the west.

This may be based on a video game but the plot sounds like any SyFy or Asylum production  TeddyR

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
