18-Nov-17 Were five months away from the release of Rampage, but Chicago will feature prominently, if the first trailer for the film is any indication.
Filming in June included scenes of a military response over river, as described by Chicago Department of Transportation. Streets were closed along Wacker Drive on the north side of the Loop. There was aerial filming along Michigan Avenue between Wacker Drive and Superior Street and filming on Madison Street in the Loop and near Federal Plaza.
The film is based on a video game from the 1980s about genetically altered apes and monsters amok in North America. It stars professional wrestler Dwayne Johnson.
The trailer was uploaded to YouTube on Thursday. Rampage will be released on April 20, 2018.
