You’ve built the tallest, most advanced building in the world but you’ve brought with it every single safety and security challenge I can think of.
Not only have you brought them all indoors but you’ve trapped them 344 floors in the air. — Will Ford (The Rock).
How tall is the Rock’s Skyscraper? The Pearl is almost 3,500 feet, rising out of Hong Kong harbour.
What’s action thriller Skyscraper about? Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson stars as Will Ford, a former veteran and FBI hostage rescue team leader, who now assesses security for skyscrapers. When the world’s tallest, safest tower goes up in flames in Hong Kong while he’s on assignment, Johnson finds himself framed for the arson. How will he clear his name and rescue his family trapped in the tower above the fire line?
