Plot kept under wraps. Described as a hostage-action-thriller set in China.

I don't think I even knew about this. The Rock seems to be the leading man in 2-3 action movies a year.

I don't need to watch this trailer either, I'm already going to see it.

If Dwayne Johnson is able to pull off the massive 40-foot (estimated) jump featured on the Skyscraper poster and in the trailer, it will be the longest self-propelled jump by a cinematic human since Matthew McConaughey's Reign of Fire jump

How they did the math

I am Rawson Thurber, the writer-director of SKYSCRAPER and I’m here to answer all your questions! AMA!

The question we all wanted to ask:
How much did inspiration did you take from Die Hard to make this?

Die Hard is one of my all time favorite films. It’s on the Mt. Rushmore of action pictures. Skyscraper is a love letter to Die Hard and films like it. I grew up on late 80s and early 90s action. So, Skyscraper owes a debt not only to Die Hard, but the Fugitive Cliffhanger and Towering Inferno. I hope the film feels like a throwback in a great way.

Pretty good answers in there, especially the Kevin Hart one.

I planned on seeing this some Friday morning after work, but at the time I forgot that JocelynJane would be off work for summer break. Unless I see with a friend some evening, I won't be seeing in theaters.
