Will Ford (Dwayne Johnson) has been framed for setting fire to the tallest building in the world. He must prove his innocence and rescue those who are trapped inside – including his own family.

A horrible accident has left former FBI Hostage Rescue Team leader Will Sawyer (Dwayne Johnson) scarred in more ways than one. Beyond the loss of his leg, his confidence has been shattered – he feels like a shell of his former self.

And then he’s presented with the opportunity of a lifetime, which could turn everything around.

Will’s job assessing security for skyscrapers takes him all around the world, but his latest assignment in China isn’t like anything he’s done before. The Pearl is the tallest building in the world, and it’s special in more ways than one.


The brilliant minds who designed it have managed to create an entire city within a single building. Full of luxury and wonder, it’s almost too good to be true…

The innovative paradise turns into a house of terror when it catches on fire – and Will’s wife Sarah (Neve Campbell) and children are trapped inside. But that’s not the worst of it. A team of criminals have framed Will for setting it ablaze, and he must evade capture while trying to rescue his family.

Rawson Marshall Thurbur (Central Intelligence, We’re the Millers) directs this action-packed thriller, which features the iconic Dwayne Johnson (Fast & Furious 8, Baywatch) as the hero with the odds stacked against him. Neve Campbell (House of Cards) stars as Will’s wife, who must use her wits to protect her children in the direst of situations.
