The first privately owned space station is destroyed by a mysterious experiment done on board. Three canisters crash land on Earth. One lands in the gorilla enclosure at the San Diego Zoo, the other in the plains of Wyoming, and the last one in the Florida Everglades. The Griffin Technologies Group, headed by two siblings (Malin Akerman and Jake Lacy), tries to destroy any evidence of wrongdoing before the government finds out. It’s too late because the canisters have infected a gorilla named George, a wolf in Wyoming, and an alligator. They start evolving and growing exponentially. To cover their tracks, the Griffin idiots decided to unleash a beacon that will make all three large animals head toward one destination: their head office located in the Willis Tower in Chicago.
