'Rampage' Villain Malin Akerman Wants to Use Monsters for Money [TCA 2018]
From Slashfilm - January 7, 2018

Actress Malin Akerman was on a Television Critics Association panel for the upcoming third season of her Showtime series Billions (seen above). After the panel, /Film was able to ask about her role in the upcoming video game adaptation Rampage, which Akerman filmed in between seasons of Billions. She was happy to detail her characters villainous plans, which is in stark contrast to Dwayne Johnsons character in the film.

Find out more about Malin Akermans Rampage villain below.

Its fun, I get to play the villain in it which was unique for me because I havent played a villain before, Akerman said. Its going to be big explosions and animals. Not quite as cartoony as a Batman or anything like that.

The classic arcade game was about humans transformed by a lab accident into a giant gorilla, lizard or wolf. The player controlled the monsters and earned points for destroying the city and subsequent games added more monsters. The movie takes a slightly difference approach though. You can watch the trailer here, but otherwise heres the official synopsis:

Primatologist Davis Okoye (Dwayne Johnson), a man who keeps people at a distance, shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent, silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry transforms this gentle ape into a raging monster. To make matters worse, its soon discovered there are other similarly altered alpha predators. As these newly created monsters tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer (Naomie Harris) to secure an antidote, 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.
