Trailer For Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s ‘Skyscraper,’ That Kinda Looks Like ‘Die Hard’ With One Leg
The first teaser trailer for Dwayne Johnson’s upcoming action movie Skyscraper debuted during Super Bowl 52. The first impressions are that it kinda looks like Die Hard, but if John McClane had one leg. The Rock follows Tom Cruise’s lead of jumping from buildings, but hopefully, it goes better than it did for Tom in Mission Impossible 6 where he shattered his ankle.
The Rock stars as Will Ford, a former FBI agent who works in skyscraper security and he is in a skyscraper with mean people with guns trying to kill him when all he wants to do is get back to his family. Sound familiar? But Johnson’s character only has one leg. The soundtrack of the trailer is Tom Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down.” Skyscraper also stars Neve Campbell (The Craft), Chin Han (The Dark Knight), and Noah Taylor (Game of Thrones). Rawson Thurber wrote and directed the action flick despite being best known for comedies such as DodgeBall, We’re the Millers, and Central Intelligence. Skyscraper hits theaters this summer.
