WATCH: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson plays amputee veteran in Skyscraper film trailer

February 5, 2018

The trailer for Dwanye “The Rock” Johnson’s new film Skyscraper was released during Superbowl LII. The initial reaction is that the flm looks like a modern day Die Hard, but it was something else that caught our eye… the biggest, toughest movie star in the world right now plays an amputee!

Say what you will about huge action blockbusters, but we’re loving the fact that it’s bringing about a conversation about amputation. The trailer makes the character look pretty awesome, and it’s so refreshing to see a hero having a disability. However the film performs, we think its a big step towards normalising amputees and those with other disabilities. Check it out below. What are your thoughts?
