Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is about to demonstrate what it is to be a living wrecking ball. A new trailer for the action star's upcoming new film Skyscraper has just been released, teasing the movie's high-octane action and vertigo-inducing leaps.
This second trailer for the Universal movie dives deeper into the story, as well as Johnson's character Will Sawyer. Starting with an early flashback, FBI agent Sawyer falls victim to a mission gone wrong. Although he is left amputated, he finds a family and a new job as head of security in The Pearl, the tallest building in the world.
When the building comes under attack, Sawyer, who somehow finds himself outside of the building at that time, must defy gravity itself to make it back in the building in order to save his family.
Then, it's up to The Rock to do what The Rock does best -- beat the living hell out of the bad guys, and inject a whole lot of heart into an original action story that doesn't come from a comic book, a novel or a franchise.
Dwayne Johnson leaps back into theaters (and burning buildings) for Skyscraper on July 13. Directed and written by Rawson M. Thurber, the film also stars Neve Campbell, Chin Han, Pablo Schreiber, Noah Taylor, Jason Day, and Hannah Quinlivan.
