Skyscraper is a 2018 American action film written and directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber. It stars Dwayne Johnson and Neve Campbell. The story follows a former FBI agent who must rescue his family from a newly built skyscraper–the tallest in the world–after it is taken over by terrorists.
Former FBI agent and amputee Will Sawyer lives in the tallest and “safest” skyscraper in Hong Kong with his family. The skyscraper itself, known as “The Pearl” houses several floors that function as their own society and despite the risks highlighted by Sawyer, who is the building’s head of security, his bosses insist that it is impenetrable. True to Sawyer’s belief, the building comes under attack by terrorists, forcing Sawyer to take action. Matters are complicated further when he finds himself framed for the attack, and his family trapped above the resulting fire line.
This summer blockbuster features an action-packed and thrilling score by acclaimed composer Steve Jablonsky (the Transformers franchise). The soundtrack also includes the original end credit song Wall by rock/soul artist by Jamie N Commons.
Universal and Legendary are releasing Skyscraper in theaters on July 13, 2018
