Johnson plays a former FBI Hostage Rescue Team leader and U.S. war veteran Will Ford, who now assesses security for skyscrapers.  On assignment in China he finds the tallest, safest building in the world suddenly ablaze, and he’s been framed for it, and now he’s on the run, and he has to save his family in the building.

Thurber is also writing. Beau Flynn is producing with Johnson and Thurber. EPs are Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia .  Wendy Jacobson  is Co-producer.

If this looks anything like The Great Wall, I expect people to immediately turn their nose up at it.

July 13th 2018 is looking packed, I'm guessing one of the films there will move.

 

Lol, I just now looked at it. It's crammed in a weekend alongside Hotel Transylvania 3The Nun, and the just recently shifted Amusement Park

 

Technically, this film would be attracting a different audience, but 2018 is already filled to the brim with noteworthy blockbusters. Never mind July.

Honestly, I just see this being another colossal box office failure.

 

The Rock brings money in, yeah. But it's been placed in a figurative war zone. I wish Legendary would stop funding flops and work on the few established properties that they have. Even if it's something unusual like Detective Pikachu. Their track record with original IPs is abysmal.

The Rock in the summer in Towering Inferno in China?

 

45/125

 

You guys are crazy if you think it will flop.

 

I agree. Hopefully they can fill it with international actors and not only The Rock and chinese actors..

Then it will be fine if they keep the budget around 100-125 mill.. Most of that will be covered by China BO alone

Couldn't agree more. This is SAN ANDREAS with more upside.

Totally agree. Not sure where the negativity is coming from.

 

Well, let me explain.

 

1. Surrounded by Ant-Man and Alita (both of which I predict big numbers for), along with opening the same day as The Nun and having Mission Impossible 6 being released 2 weeks after.

2. Legendary's shoddy track record with non-franchise films in America.

 

My two main reasons why I don't think this'll do well.  If it were released in a part of the year with much less competition, then I wouldn't be so hesitant.

If there are any action blockbusters likely to take a hit within this lineup, Alita is the most likely candidate. It has vain franchise starter written all over it.
