Fueled with adrenaline and high impact verticality, the over-the-top action-thriller Skyscraper is led by superstar Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (San Andreas), who plays former FBI Hostage Team leader, U.S. war veteran and amputee Will Sawyer.

While on assignment in Hong Kong as an assessor for security in skyscrapers, Sawyer comes to find the tallest and safest building in the world suddenly ablaze, and he has been framed for it. Wanted and on the run, Will must find those responsible, clear his name and save his family who is trapped inside the building… above the fire line.

Also starring Neve Campbell (54), Chin Han (The Dark Knight) and Pablo Schreiber (13 Hours), the movie is written and directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (Central Intelligence, We’re the Millers)  and Hannah Quinlivan (Moon River).

Though the critics weren’t crazy about The Rock’s latest outing, plenty of moviegoers around the world were amused enough, catapulting Skyscraper to more than $300 million at the international box office.
