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.
FBI, show me your hands!
Yeah, I'm good, just a little nervous.
Well, you look very handsome.
I just don't wanna screw it up, you know?
You have been preparing for this meeting for six months.
You got this.
Let me ask you guys a question.
Daddy loves who?
Daddy loves who?
Daddy is gonna go make that bacon.
Mr. Sawyer, is your family enjoying their stay?
Very much so.
They're shocked you gave us the entire floor.
After your security assessment, what do you think of the building?
With all due respect, he's a glorified security guard.
The Pearl is the tallest, most advanced building in the world.
You've built a vertical city.
But you've brought with it every single safety and security challenge that I can think of.
We thought this floor was empty.
So did I.
Not only have you brought them all indoors but you've trapped them 240 floors in the air.
No one really knows what would happen if things go wrong.
But I'm just a glorified security guard, so what the hell do I know anyway?
What's going on?
The 96th floor is on fire.
We are gonna be just fine.
I promise you that.
No, no, no, no, no!
Tell me, how much do you love your family?
If we're gonna get out of here, you're going to have to tell me the truth.
There's a reason we chose this building.
My family is the only thing that matters to me right now.
