AceShowbiz - The recent shift in "Avengers: Infinity War" release date has affected another film's release date. This happens to "Rampage" starring Dwayne "%cThe Rock%" Johnson. 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.
Warner Bros. initially scheduled "Rampage", which is based on 1980s video game by Midway Games, to be released on Friday, April 20 in the United States.

As these newly created predators battle for supremacy and tear across North America, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer (%cNaomie Harris%) to secure an antidote and fight his way through the ever-changing battlefield, not only to stop a global catastrophe, but also to save the beast that once his friend.
