Dwayne Johnson proves he can still kick butt even with a prosthetic leg in the new full trailer for his summer action movie “Skyscraper.”
The Universal/Legendary Pictures production stars Johnson as Will Ford, a former FBI Hostage Rescue Team leader and U.S. war veteran who now assesses security for skyscrapers.
In China, he finds the tallest and safest building on the planet suddenly ablaze — and he’s the only one who can deal with the the threat and save his family from a bunch of terrorists (led by Roland Moller) and unravel whatever conspiracy is going on. “There’s a reason they chose this building,” Chin Han’s wealthy developer tells him.
Further details are pretty scant in this trailer, so we’ll have to wait to find out more about the apparent “Die Hard”-esque plot. So, for now, lots of shots of bad guys shooting guns and The Rock doing crazy stunts will have to suffice.
The new trailer, which debuted during “The Tonight Show” after the Super Bowl, shows Ford struggling to survive as he dangles from a cord thousands of feet above the ground — and then leaping off a very-high-off-the-ground crane into open air.
Rawson M. Thurber wrote and directed the “Die Hard”-like thriller, with Neve Campbell, Chin Han, and Pablo Schreiber also starring.
“Skyscraper” hits theaters July 18. Watch the trailer in the embedded video above.
