Dwayne Johnson Throws Shade at Doom Movie

When praising Rampage, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson throws shade at Doom movie and their Twitter respond back!

Hollywood superstar and former WWE megastar Dwayne Johnson (Baywatch, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) is having quite a good time as his recent success at box-office with the release of sci-fi monster flick Rampage from Warner Bros. Pictures, which is based on a 1986 arcade game of the same name from developer Midway Games. The movie is solely based on an original story that only borrows the monstrous creatures and few other aspects from the game it is based on.

RELATED: Rampage is Highest-Rated Video Game Movie Ever

Though video game movie adaptations mostly end up being a huge commercial failure as well as a critical disaster beyond redemption, Rampage managed to change that by scoring 53% “Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes aside from a very steady opening weekend. The rating was set on a basis of 153 reviews on this review aggregation site following the day of its release. So, that means, the film is on a good standpoint in either way and that's actually new to this unique genre.

Seeing his work finally breaking the longest running curse of video game movie being failures, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson joyfully posted a Tweet.




While he was being all thankful at Rampage’s recent success, he couldn't help but playfully point out that he also starred in 2005's sci-fi action horror movie adaptation of Doom and how it was a complete disaster all along. This is actually true that director Andrzej Bartkowiak’s Doom movie was so bad and very poorly-written that even the combined star-power of Johnson himself along with actor Karl Urban and Rosamund Pike couldn't save it from sky fall it experienced.

However, Rock calling Doom a “stinker” didn't go well with whoever runs the official Twitter account for Doom who was not so pleased. They got back at Johnson by responding in a minimal but classy way by Tweeting out ‘Dwayne.’ Guess, the film being so bad was already quite painful for them and then he had to drag it back decade after once again was too much for them to bear. Doom is a popular first person shooter game of 1993 and is reworked for a quasi-reboot which came out in 2016 from id Software and Bethesda Softworks.

Rampage is Highest-Rated Video Game Movie Ever

Based on a 1986 arcade game of the same name from developer Midway Games, sci-fi monster movie Rampage from Warner Bros. Pictures is released already. It features Hollywood superstar and former WWE megastar Dwayne Johnson (Baywatch, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) in the role Davis Oyoke, who is a primatologist and friend with a silverback gorilla named George. When his friend becomes victim of a mutagen, it mutates him and other animals into monstrous creatures, which starts a "Rampage" in Chicago.

Although video game movie adaptations have a bad reputation of being botched out all the times, Johnson's monster flick Rampage seems to have just changed that. A day after it came out, the film currently holds 53% “Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes from 153 reviews on their site. They have a list of 46 video game movies that they ranked in order of worst to best and joining ranks with its predecessors, Rampage currently is highest rated video game movie of all time.

Review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes actually scores on the average of positive reviews from those who watched the film. Just because Rampage has a great opening on RT means, everyone else has picked it as their favorites. Another review site, Metacritic has given it 45, based on 43 of their critics and that is not considerably good! They have held Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within (2001) and Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2017) in high regard in ranks of video game movie adaptations.

Video game enthusiasts have been eagerly waiting for years to see the curse of low rating for a video game movie to finally end at some point. Many fans had high hopes for Michael Fassbender’s Assassin’s Creed (2016) movie but even that couldn't live up to expectation and ended up garnering only 18% score. We are still trying to forget the god-awful adaptations of Bloodrayne (2006), Street Fighter (1994) and Super Mario Bros. (1993) that still haunts our memory till this date.

What filmmakers and studios do that go wrong in cases like this is that they either try to make a cinematic rip-off or their own version of garbage, which makes the critics cringe. It appears that Johnson's monster flick Rampage finally has broke the curse of video game movie with his celluloid portrayal of bromance between man and beast. Alicia Vikander starrer Tomb Raider movie is the only one that came any closer of uplifting this curse so far with a 51% positive rating.

Rampage Movie Second Trailer

Currently, Warner Bros. Pictures is busy with their upcoming lineup for DC Films but that doesn't mean they wouldn't love to try and make some cash with a video game movie.

The second trailer for the film has just been released and we are here for that.

Check out the second official trailer for Dwayne Johnson's upcoming sci-fi monster movie Rampage from Warner Bros. Pictures below.




Rampage is a potential box-office hit movie based on the 1986 arcade game of the same name from developer Midway Games. Johnson is starring as the character Davis Oyoke, who is a primatologist and friend with an albino gorilla named George, whom he rescued at the age of 2. As his gorilla friend grows into a 1,000-pound massive sized creature after being exposed to an experimental genetic material, George goes out to wreck havoc and Oyoke steps in to help his lifelong friend in need.

Also, George is not the only one rampaging through the city of Chicago. We are introduced to the two other mutated animals; Ralph the wolf and Lizzie the crocodile. The second theatrical trailer offers more action involving all these monsters running amok the populace and how military has been unsuccessful to even slow them down. At one point, we see Ralph the wolf flying throughout a building and Lizzie the crocodile crushing a plane between her jaws. Davis Oyoke probably manages to team-up with his friend George to fight these other monsters.

Rampage Movie "BIG MEETS BIGGER" Trailer

Back in November 2017, the official trailer for Rampage was released and now comes another one titled "BIG MEETS BIGGER", that offers more footage from the film.



Like the first official trailer, "BIG MEETS BIGGER" clip did not just stayed on the course of the film's plot. Instead, it gives us brand-new and exclusive peak into the mutated animals with better visuals. This one-minute long clip still gives us glimpse of how the mysterious green steam came to turn Johnson's character Davis Oyoke’s white gorilla friend George into a massive sized, 1,000-pound worth of machine of destruction.

Problem is, the super-sized silverback gorilla George isn't the only animal that has gone through an unusual “genetic editing” which turned him into a monster. Turns out, there are other players at play counting Ralph the wolf and Lizzie the crocodile in. Together, all of them tear apart and wreck havoc throughout Chicago, while Oyoke tries to find a way to save the city as well as his old buddy! Plus, he has his funny line when he was brawling with a few soldiers in the middle of this mess.

Directed by Brad Peyton (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, San Andreas), sci-fi monster film Rampage is going to be released on April 20, 2018 and promising to be another box-office hit. Aside from Johnson, the film also starrs Naomie Harris (28 Days Later, Skyfall), Malin Ă…kerman, Joe Manganiello (Magic Mike, True Blood), Jake Lacy, Marley Shelton and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen, The Walking Dead) as co-stars in various other roles.
