Dwayne ” The Rock” Johnson, has quickly become one of Hollywood’s most successful actors seemingly churning out hit after hit. His latest project Skyscraper has the look and feel of any number of Die Hard movies. Johnson commented on this recently via twitter –

With that in mind, here’s the final trailer for Skyscraper –

While the trailer doesn’t give the impression that the film even will come close to the classics Johnson alluded to, Skyscraper does appear to capture the essence of any number of 80’s/90’s action films. Johnson’s character like McClane is seemingly against incredible odds and seems to overcome them. Fans may need to check their brains at the door, so they can fully embrace any number of action sequences which will likely defy all logic. Check out this summary of Skyscraper which releases next week.


Former FBI Hostage Rescue Team leader and U.S. war veteran Will Ford now assesses security for skyscrapers. He’s on assignment in China when 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, which is trapped inside the building, above the fire line.
