It’s no secret that we like The Rock around these parts. Dwayne Johnson’s charisma and mega-watt smile just always wins us over. He’s been in goofy action-comedy mode of late, with Jumanji, Baywatch and Central Intelligence, but Skyscraper sees him going back to the standard action model of ‘cheesy and implausible, but come on, it’s The Rock — he’s saving the day, don’t ask too many science questions!’ Is it going to be better than San Andreas and Rampage?

When the first trailer dropped in February, Dustin said it looked very Die Hard, and the second trailer confirms it: This is Die Hard but BIGGER and THE ROCK-IER. The jump from the crane to the window was widely mocked as defying the laws of physics, but let’s not allow realism to get in the way of a crazy set piece!

Johnson plays a military veteran who takes on a job as a Health and Safety adviser in a ridiculously huge, shiny hi-tech skyscraper. Because it’s a disaster movie, NO-ONE LISTENS TO THE HEALTH AND SAFETY GUY. We’ve talked about this before in the Jurassic franchise and in Deep Blue Sea 2. The root cause of every disaster movie is failure to complete proper risk assessments, people. When will anyone learn?

Fortunately, this H&S guy is, you know, The Rock, so when Barely-Veiled Hans Gruber and his associates turn up, he’s ready. He might smash the whole place up in the process, but DAMN IT, HIS FAMILY NEED HIM.

I’m very here for Johnson as an action hero with a prosthetic leg, and Neve Campbell as a surgeon who can kick some ass as well. Check out the new trailer below!
