It’s surprising that it’s taken this long for Hollywood to make a massive 3D earthquake movie, but 2015 will see one in the form of San Andreas. And by the looks of it, it’s out to prove Roland Emmerich (Day After Tomorrow, 2012) isn’t the only person who can show disaster on a ridiculously epic scale.
The main human stuck in the middle of this tectonic Armageddon is Dwayne Johnson, although the trailer knows the stars of the show here are the building collapsing, the earth shaking and the dams bursting. It’s fair to say that the movie believes that when a huge quake hits LA, the city is completely buggered (although oddly most of the film was shot in Australia).
Here’s the synopsis: ‘After the infamous San Andreas Fault finally gives, triggering a magnitude 9 earthquake in California, a search and rescue helicopter pilot (Dwayne Johnson) and his estranged wife make their way together from Los Angeles to San Francisco to save their only daughter.
‘But their treacherous journey north is only the beginning. And when they think the worst may be over…it’s just getting started.
‘The action thriller “San Andreas,” from New Line Cinema and Village Roadshow Pictures, reunites Dwayne Johnson with director Brad Peyton and producer Beau Flynn, following their collaboration on the global hit “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.”’
A May 29th, 2015 release is set.
