    I laughed all the way through the trailer during the Super Bowl and not in a good way. I have no doubt it'll be entertaining in that "wow, I can't believe they make movies this fucking bad" sort of way but that's about it. I could also see it being a rare bomb for Dwayne seeing as it's coming out sandwiched between Ant Man & The Wasp and that James Cameron/Robert Rodriguez collaboration Battle Angel, which looks equally as terrible as this.

    Gotta love how they're advertising the entire movie on one action jump.

    It looks no more stupid than San Andreas and way more fun so I'm pretty good with it as a concept.

    Total Lifetime Grosses
    Domestic: $25,485,000 38.7%
    + Foreign: $40,400,000 61.3%
    = Worldwide: $65,885,000
    This movie had a reported 125 million dollar budget, and fell short of expectations. Reports are saying they were hoping for at least 30 million it's opening weekend domestically.

    Re: Skyscraper (2018)

    This movie SUCKED!! It's nothing but explosions, shooting, and just the tiniest bit of a plot. Just when you thought this movie had used every action-movie cliche in the books, they go and invent a new one...
    Spoiler:

    Johnson's character is hanging off the side of the building with only a rope tied to his prosthetic leg to keep him from falling, and then his leg starts to become detached from the rest of his body.

    I can't remember the last time I laughed this much at a movie that I wasn't supposed to laugh at.
