Dwayne Johnson’s ‘Skyscraper’ Goes Digital in September
Dwayne Johnson battles the blaze
Universal Pictures’ “Skyscraper” will release on Digital HD and Movies Anywhere on September 25, 2018. The film will also release on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand on October 9, 2018. The action-thriller follows Dwayne Johnson’s (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Fate of the Furious,”Ballers”) character as a real-world hero who will stop at nothing while trying to save his family from a deadly blaze. The home-video release will also feature over 30 minutes of never-before-seen bonus content, including deleted scenes and exclusive bonus clips.
“Skyscraper” is led by superstar Dwayne Johnson who plays former FBI Hostage Team leader, U.S. war veteran and amputee Will Sawyer. While on assignment in Hong Kong as an assessor for security in skyscrapers, he comes to find the tallest and safest building in the world suddenly ablaze, and he has been framed for it. Wanted and on the run, Will must find those responsible, clear his name and save his family who is trapped inside the building… above the fire line.
While the film wasn’t the most successful Dwayne Johnson project to hit theaters this year, it certainly did very well. “Skyscraper” debuted at number-three back in July, opening against Sony’s mega-hit “Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation” while “Ant-Man and the Wasp” was still going strong. Even against the heavy competition, “Skyscraper” made almost $25M on opening weekend and went on to make over $292M worldwide.
Skyscraper was written and directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (Central Intelligence, We’re the Millers) and produced by Beau Flynn (Rampage, San Andreas), Hiram Garcia (Rampage, Jumanji, San Andreas) and Johnson. The film also stars Neve Campbell (Netflix’s “House of Cards,” Scream franchise), Chin Han (The Dark Knight), Roland Møller (Land of Mine), Pablo Schreiber (Starz’s “American Gods,” 13 Hours) and Hannah Quinlivan (Moon River).
