Dwayne Johnson's 'Rampage' Release Date Moved After 'Avengers' Shift

Movie spoilers are unavoidable even at the best of times, but when it comes to Avengers: Infinity War, arguably the most-anticipated movie of 2018, Marvel Studios will surely have to go that extra mile to ensure Joe and Anthony Russo's Herculean crossover remains under wraps for as long as possible.

While Marvel's move makes sense considering the popularity of Ryan Reynolds' first "Deadpool" movie, this sudden release date shift does feel somewhat unfair to Dwayne Johnson, who, along with his directing buddy Brad Peyton, made a little movie called "Rampage" that was due out on April 20.

Serving as executive producers are Marcus Viscidi, Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, and Jeff Fierson, with Wendy Jacobson co-producing.

Do you think Rampage would have lost much money to Infinity War in its second weekend? After the release date for the superhero team-up movie was moved up to Friday, April 27, Warner Bros. has just taken the same move for its new film starring the wrestler-turned-actor.

According to inside sources talking to THR, Warner Bros.'s Rampage re-scheduling is done specifically in response to Infinity War's move.

The other films set to open April 13 include the Shia LaBeouf-Stellan Skarsgard tennis drama Borg vs. McEnroe, the high school volleyball film The Miracle Season, Anna Farris' Overboard remake, and the animated Sgt. While we all know that no release will be able to withstand Avengers at the box office, the filmmakers are aware of this as well. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry transforms this gentle ape into a raging monster. As the mutated beasts embark on a path of destruction, Okoye teams up with a discredited genetic engineer and the military to secure an antidote and prevent a global catastrophe.
