The thriller stars The Rock as a security guard for the (fictional) tallest building in the world, a swirling glass-and-steel monolith in Hong Kong. The Skyscraper trailer features breathtaking bird's eye footage of the city as Johnson, in addition to other feats, desperately climbs to save his family from a terrorist plot.
Besides The Rock, cast members Neve Campbell, Ng Chin Han and Hannah Quinlivan, as well as director Rawson Marshall Thurber, visited the setting of their film from July 5-7 for a press conference and fan events, South China Morning Post reported.

Appropriately enough, in between press interviews, Johnson met up with 'French Spiderman' Alain Robert, who scaled the city's 165-meter-tall Four Seasons Hotel this past Saturday morning using mostly his hands and a pair of climbing shoes.
The habitual solo climber was also backed up by a film crew and safety equipment throughout the trek, and made it to the top in time to chat and pose for a photo with the A-list celebrity.
'He's nice,' wrote the tower-topper of the star of Skyscraper.
Even if he, unlike Robert, saves his death-defying stunts for the silver screen.
