Wow… Talk about your unintended double entendre.
While it looks like we won’t be getting a trailer for Solo: A Star Wars story during the Super Bowl, we will be getting a look at Dwayne Johnson’s next disaster action thriller mystery, Skyscraper. Today, Johnson took to Instagram to show off the centerpiece of the new film, the tallest fictional building in the world: The Pearl.
Per Johnson’s Instagram:
THIS SUNDAY during the SUPER BOWL you’ll see the first look at our original concept of an idea, @skyscrapermovie A film not based off a franchise, book, ride or existing brand. Just a lil’ crazy idea from writer/director @rawsonthurber that we thought would make a unique, heart stopping, compelling story. THIS SUNDAY during the game, you’ll see first hand the intense heights we’ll take you. #SKYSCRAPER #SUMMER2018 #OriginalFilmmakingLives
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.
