Although disaster movies don’t resonate particularly well in the theaters, it doesn’t stop studios from making them. The latest to try their luck in the genre is Warner Bros. with their earthquake actioner, San Andreas. Leading the charge to save his family (daughter and estranged wife) this time — in very much the same way John Cusack did in “2012” — is Dwayne Johnson as a helicopter pilot/super dad. I doubt very many surprises will be found within it and the trailer for it is as vanilla as can be. Of course maybe I’m just missing it, so take a look for yourself in the trailer above made available by Warner Bros.
San Andreas stars Dwayne Johnson, Paul Giamatti, Alexandra Daddario, Carla Gugino, Colton Haynes, Ioan Gruffudd, and Archie Panjabi.
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.
San Andreas implodes in US and UK theaters on May 29, 2015.
