Dwayne Johnson has gone face to face with mummies, Vin Diesel, The Undertaker, and numerous other formidable antagonists over the course of his long career. Next up – a really tall building. A Skyscraper, in point of fact, and a trailer for the movie recently had its premiere during The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Unfortunately, Skyscraper does not feature Dwayne Johnson fighting a giant robot that turns into a skyscraper a la the Blue Falcon’s old enemy Hijinx. Instead, well, here’s the official plot synopsis:
“Global icon Dwayne Johnson leads the cast of Legendary’s Skyscraper as former FBI Hostage Rescue Team leader and U.S. war veteran Will Sawyer, 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.”
Above the fire line … that’s bad, right? Anyway, you can check out the trailer for Skyscraper below. The film hits theaters this summer, and in the meantime you can see its official site right here.
