Guests enjoyed a special preview screening of Dwayne Johnson’s new action packed adventure movie, Rampage, at Cineworld Imax.

Spotted at the screening on Parnell Street in Dublin on Wednesday evening were Gail and Jumar Kaneswaran, models Karl Bowe and Carl Shaaban, Roisin O’Hea, Lisa Nolan, Nirina Plunkett and SPIN1038 presenter Peter Collins.

Johnson stars as primatologist Davis Okoye, a man who keeps people at a distance but shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent, incredibly rare albino silverback gorilla.

Georgre has been in his care since he rescued the young orphan from poachers.

But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry mutates this gentle ape into a raging creature of enormous size.

To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered animals.

As these newly created alpha predators tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with discredited geneticist Kate Caldwell (Naomie Harris) to secure an antidote.

Dwayne is seen fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.

Johnson made headlines recently when he opened up about his struggles with mental health smashing through some of the stigma surrounding men talking about their mental health.

Rampage also stars Oscar nominee Naomie Harris who starred in the Academy Award winning Moonlight.

Stars from top TV shows also took part including Malin Akerman from Billions, Jake Lacy from Girls, Joe Manganiello from True Blood and Jeffrey Dean Morgan The Walking Dead.

P.J. Byrne from The Wolf of Wall Street, Marley Shelton from Rise and Breanne Hill from Frontier are other familiar famous faces involved.

The movie was directed by Brad Preyton and has a run time of 107 minutes.

Costing $120million to make, Rampage is based of a 1986 arcade game which Wraner Bros acquired the right to in 2009.

It was shot in Chicago and Atlanta.
