Read on: TheWrapTheWrap

Dwayne Johnson has already made a big impact on the box office with “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” and he is looking to do it again this summer with “Skyscraper,” a new thriller from Sony whose high-flying first trailer debuted during the Super Bowl.

“Skyscraper” stars Johnson as former FBI Hostage Rescue Team leader and U.S. war veteran Will Ford, who now assesses security for skyscrapers.

In China, he finds the tallest and safest building on the planet suddenly ablaze — and he’s being framed for the accident. The new trailer shows Ford struggling to survive as he dangles from a cord thousands of feet above the ground. Rawson M. Thurber wrote and directed the film, with Neve Campbell, Chin Han, and Pablo Schreiber also starring.

“Skyscraper” hits theaters July 18. Watch the trailer in the clip above.
