Dwayne Johnson Pokes Fun at Himself in New 'Rampage' Teaser
Dwayne Johnson had a little fun at his own expense when he shared a new teaser for his upcoming action film Rampage.
Based on the classic 1980s video game of the same title, Johnson (in a gym, naturally) promised his audience a "bad-ass" look at himself in the film. The problem? The following clip was just him fleeing from a monster with text that also notes he is running away.
"What the [bleep] was that?!" the actor says to someone off-camera. "You can't put up the graphic 'I'm running for my life!' The world is watching this. I'm the most bad-ass movie star on the planet. I have a reputation to protect."
Johnson then demanded the "no fear" clip be shown.
In the subsequent clip, he is clearly scared, saying, "Oh, shit."
Cutting back to a deadpan face, Johnson says, "Just... You're going to have the time of your life. Enjoy Rampage."
The Warner Bros. film is set to be released April 13. Rampage revolves around a monstrously transformed gorilla (Jason Liles), crocodile and wolf that terrorize a city. Johnson, who plays primatologist Davis Okoye, is the only one who can stop them.
Check out the new teaser, below.
