Video: Cue the mutant apes

12-Jun-17 – (Above) A helicopter flies low over Marina City on Saturday morning while filming for an upcoming movie, Rampage, starring Dwayne Johnson. Based on a video game, the film is about genetically altered apes and monsters amok in North America.

Streets were closed during filming on both sides of Wacker Drive from Wabash Avenue to Columbus Drive. Parking was banned on numerous streets in the area.

There was also aerial filming along Michigan Avenue between Wacker Drive and Superior Street and filming on Madison Street in the Loop and near Federal Plaza.

Rampage will be filming in the Loop through June 20, near the 300 block of West Washington Street and 100 block of North Franklin Street, according to filming permits issued by Chicago Department of Transportation.
