Universal Pictures

Its Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson against tall buildings in the spectacular new trailer for “Skyscraper,” the megastar’s soon-to-be summer blockbuster.

The film reunites Johnson with his “Central Intelligence” director Rawson Marshall Thurber who also wrote the film. Johnson plays Will Ford, a former FBI Hostage Rescue Team leader, who now assesses security for skyscrapers after having a leg amputated.

The action star is having a great year with two certified hits released during the last six months: “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” and “Rampage” proving he is the world’s biggest movie-star. And with Skyscraper’s “Die Hard” meets “Towering Inferno” vibe, it looks he’s its right in his wheelhouse.

Skyscaper, which also stars Neve Campbell, Chin Han, and Roland Møller and is set to open on July 13th.

Here’s the film’s synopsis:

Global icon Dwayne Johnson leads the cast of Legendary’s Skyscraper as former FBI Hostage Rescue Team leader and U.S. war veteran Will Sawyer, who now assesses security for skyscrapers. On assignment in China he finds the tallest, safest building in the world suddenly ablaze, and he’s been framed for it. A wanted man on the run, Will must find those responsible, clear his name and somehow rescue his family who is trapped inside the building…above the fire line.
