What would happen if all hell broke loose atop the most advanced building in the world? In Universal Pictures’ SKYSCRAPER, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson answers the call when his family is trapped inside The Pearl, a building touted as being “the tallest and safest in the world.” As the Titanic has shown us, bold claims seldom end well. After a teaser spot during the Super Bowl, the full trailer for SKYSCRAPER made its debut during The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. See it below…
Global icon Dwayne Johnson leads the cast of Legendary’s Skyscraper 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 3D action-thriller is produced by Beau Flynn (San Andreas, Baywatch), Johnson, Thurber and Hiram Garcia (San Andreas, Central Intelligence).
Skyscraper’s executive producers are Dany Garcia (Baywatch, Ballers), Wendy Jacobson (San Andreas), Eric Hedayat (The Great Wall, Real Steel) and Eric McLeod (Kong: Skull Island, Pirates of the Caribbean series). The film will be released by Universal Pictures.
