Skyscraper trailer: Dwayne Johnson stands tall against the bad guys to save his family

Fresh from beating down flying giant wolves, mutated alligators and enormous albino gorillas, Dwayne Johnson is back doing some ridiculous larger than life stuff again. He has continued to turn these types of films into passable fare due to his charm and charisma but you can't help but think he needs a defining role sooner or later. Film stars rarely last too long if they continue to remain themselves onscreen - just ask Will Smith how things have been going over the past few years. Check out the trailer for Skyscraper above.

Johnson leads line as former FBI Hostage Rescue Team leader and U.S. war veteran Will Ford, 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.

Written and directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (Central Intelligence, We’re the Millers), the film also stars Pablo Schreiber, Neve Campbell and Roland Møller.

Skyscraper leaps into UK cinemas on Friday 13th July 2018.
