“Rampage,” starring Dwayne Johnson, tore across Philippine theatres, grossing a four-day weekend total of P59.7-million at the box office. The announcement was made today by Francis Soliven, General Manager of Warner Bros. Philippines.
Thrilling audiences with its epic scope, cutting-edge visual effects, over-the-top action sequences and stunts, rampaging monsters, and unexpected humor and heart, the new action-adventure gave WB Philippines its biggest opening of the year todate, outgrossing last month’s “Tomb Raider.”
In making the announcement, Soliven stated: “‘Rampage’ is a massive, broad audience film that demands to be seen on the big screen – from the creatures to the visual spectacle … to Dwayne Johnson himself. Dwayne, director Brad Peyton and the rest of the cast and crew have delivered everything audiences want from an action movie event.”
“Rampage” also stars Oscar nominee Naomie Harris (“Moonlight”), Malin Akerman (TV’s “Billions”), Jake Lacy (TV’s “Girls”), Joe Manganiello (TV’s “True Blood”), and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (TV’s “The Walking Dead”); as well as P.J. Byrne (“The Wolf of Wall Street”), Marley Shelton (TV’s “Rise”), Breanne Hill (TV’s “Frontier”), Jack Quaid (“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”), Matt Gerald (TV’s “Daredevil”), Jason Liles (“Death Note”), Demetrius Grosse (TV’s “The Brave”), and Will Yun Lee (TV’s “Hawaii Five-O”).
Peyton directed from a screenplay by Ryan Engle and Carlton Cuse & Ryan J. Condal and Adam Sztykiel, story by Ryan Engle.
“Rampage” was produced by Beau Flynn, John Rickard, Brad Peyton and Hiram Garcia. It marks the third collaboration between Johnson, Peyton, Flynn and Garcia, following the international blockbuster hit “San Andreas,” Warner Bros.’ highest grossing film of 2015, as well as 2012’s global smash “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.” Executive producers were Marcus Viscidi, Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, Jeff Fierson, Toby Emmerich, Richard Brener and Michael Disco.
Now playing in Philippine cinemas, Rampage is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
