New Line has has released the first trailer for “Rampage,” which stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

“Rampage” is based on the 1980s video game and will feature three monsters who are wreaking havoc across North America — Johnson is the only hope of stopping them.

In the trailer, Johnson likes to hang out with animals more than people, and he rescued a gorilla named George (played by Jason Liles) when he was two years old. However, he keeps growing in weight and height, and soon becomes the size of King Kong.

It becomes clear that genetic editing was involved, and there’s also a 30-foot wolf that is a danger to the planet. Then, there’s also a Godzilla-like dinosaur/lizard. The Rock tries to save the world.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Malin Akerman and Joe Manganiello, and Naomie Harris also star in the action film, directed by Brad Peyton (“San Andreas”).

The thriller reunites Johnson, New Line, producer Beau Flynn and Peyton, who also worked together on “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.”

Ryan Engle wrote the original screenplay. Carlton Cuse and Ryan Condal revised it, with Adam Sztykiel handling current revisions.

“Rampage” is set for an April 20, 2018 release.
