Did You Know This About the Upcoming Movie “The Rampage” With Dwayne Johnson?

He learned American Sign Language for the film

Remember that arcade classic from 1986 The Rampage? The game allows up to 3 players to play at the same time as the classic monsters: King Kong, Godzilla, and Werewolf. Together the three go on rampage and destroy the city to advance levels. It’s been made into a movie with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson!

But that’s not all: the hero (Dwayne Johnson’s character) knows American Sign Language.

His character, David Okoye, uses ASL to communicate with his monster friend, the albino King Kong-inspired character George. The story shows that Okoye adopted George when he was 2 years old and just kept growing into the behemoth shown in the film. Okoye communicates with George in sign language and built a strong bond this way. Together, they go on a mission to rescue the genetically engineered behemoths and save the world from their rampages.

Remember this game?

Rampage is scheduled to be released on April 20, 2018. It is directed by Brad Peyton, known for the film San Andreas with Dwayne Johnson.

  1. Awesome site you have here but I was wanting to know if you knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics discussed here? I’d really love to be a part of community where I can get feed-back from other experienced individuals that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Bless you!

    • Actually he did sign rock as the rock sign is using closed fists and using your dominate hand and tap on your non dominate hand. He used ASL through the entire movie.

    • Yeah I can see where is is the sign for alright… It just goes super fast in the trailer… lol~ it’s all good 😀

  2. I was wondering the same thing… He also uses “stop” for “everything is ok” which… almost makes sense… but just using the sign for “fine” or “ok” or “calm down” would have made more sense. There were quite a few other discrepancies… It’s like they just watched someone sign and picked out what they thought they meant. 🙁

    • Thank You Kaci and Kali. 🙂
      I asked my deaf friend what the sign from the trailer meant.. He watched and laughed. Yeah he uses STOP to ask if George is OK. The sign for LAUGH and CRY were right, but like my friend said… got to see the whole movie to see why Rock’s character did those signs…
      Looking forward to it! oh did you see READY PLAYER ONE?! AWESOME movie 😉

  3. Why do Dwayne use the sign for a modified version of the sign for SAW to ask George if he is OK? Someone should of let him know that was wrong. I adore Dwayne, but his team failed him.

    • oops tying errors stink too. 😛 I was trying to say Why is Dwayne using a modified version of the sigh SAW (to saw wood in half) to ask George if he is ok? The sign should of been FINE with one hand, fingers up against chest moving out. Looking forward to seeing RAMPAGE. The twist on the video game I played when I was younger. 🙂
