“Rampage” director Brad Peyton, producer Beau Flynn and stars Dwayne Johnson and Naomi Harris walked the red carpet at Shanghai Film Museum yesterday and later attended the film’s premiere at Shanghai Film Art Center.

Based on a video game series, the movie tells a story of George, an extraordinarily intelligent gorilla-turned-monster. 

Colin Strause, known for his work on “X-Men: Apocalypse” and “San Andreas,” and artists from Weta Digital joined forces to create its stunning visual effects.

Johnson, on his first visit to Shanghai, said it was an honor to bring the movie to the city.

“I love movies and I will always do what I love,” said Johnson, who is also known as The Rock.

Johnson, a friend of Chinese action star Wu Jing, said he was grateful for Chinese fans’ warm welcome and their trust in his movies. 

The film will go on release in China and the United States on April 13.
