Rampage, the Classic Arcade Game, hits the big screen!

Remember the Midway Arcade Game Rampage?

If you don’t recall this 1986 arcade game, perhaps you remember its sequels Rampage World TourRampage 2: Universal TourRampage Through TimeRampage Puzzle Attack, and the latest, which hit the Wii console, Rampage: Total Destruction.

90’s kids, if you don’t recognize this classic, you need to reevaluate your childhood! I remember playing Rampage World Tour on my Game Boy Color, taking turns once the police mowed us down, for hours, smashing every window of every building possible and throwing innocent civilians left, right, up at the sky and down into the ground.

So, why am I bringing this up? Well, because, Rampage will see its very own live action movie adaptation, starting production in summer 2016! Did we want this? No, I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone say “Hey, remember Rampage? How cool would it be to see The Rock take on that big monkey? Or that giant lizard? Or that psychotic rat?” Oh, I forgot to mention, Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson will be in the movie.

Cool guys always walk away from destruction.
Cool guys always walk away from destruction.

We didn’t want this, but we sure are excited.  Not much else is known but we’ll keep you updated. Let us at RL know if you too, are excited for the movie adaptation of Rampage!
