The premiere this weekend of “Project Rampage”, the new destruction and chaos film of Dwayne “La Roca” Johnson, promises to annihilate his rivals in the undercard and win the number one box office.
Johnson embodies in the film a primatologist who maintains a special bond with George, a gorilla of extraordinary intelligence who becomes a huge and savage creature when exposed to a gas from a catastrophic genetic experiment.
That threat adds to the presence of a wolf and a crocodile that has undergone the same mutation and that make the US on the stage of a huge battle, while the protagonist tries to get the antidote to reverse the transformation of animals.
Naomie Harris, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Malin Akerman complete the cast of this film called to raise about 40 million dollars (32.3 million euros) in its debut, according to industry estimates.
The other big premiere of the week is “Truth or challenge”, a horror movie with touches of black humor directed by Jeff Wadlow (“Kick-Ass 2: With a pair”, 2013) and a very young cast in which appear, Lucy Hale, Tyler Posey, and Violett Beane.
The film tells how some friends, during a vacation in Mexico, enter a diabolical game in which they must overcome twisted tests if they want to survive.
The comedy “Overboard” and “Borg vs McEnroe” also arrive in theaters.
In “Overboard”, the Mexican Eugenio Derbez gives life to Leonardo, a selfish and capricious “playboy” who belongs to the richest family in Mexico, while Anna Faris plays Kate, a single and hardworking mother who has been hired to clean the millionaire’s yacht
“Borg vs McEnroe”, meanwhile, narrates the rivalry during the 1980s of tennis players Björn Borg and volatile John McEnroe.
