Dwayne Johnson in Surprisingly Somber 'San Andreas' First Trailer
"I cannot emphasize this enough. You need to get out, and I mean now." California crumbles in the first teaser trailer for San Andreas, the earthquake action thriller starring Dwayne Johnson. Now obviously a disaster of this scale wouldn't be something to be excited about, but we're surprised that a disaster flick like this paints such a somber portrait of the movie, especially since it's coming from director Brad Peyton of Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. But it's actually a little refreshing to have a teaser trailer that features massive destruction, and doesn't just go for the big, fun action angle. But will the movie be good? Watch!
Here's the first trailer for Brad Peyton's San Andreas from Warner Bros. Pictures:
San Andreas is directed by Brad Peyton (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island) and written by Allan Loeb (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps), Carlton Cuse (executive producer and writer of "Lost"), Chad & Carey Hayes (The Conjuring), Jeremy Passmore (Red Dawn) and Andre Fabrizio (Vice). Set in the aftermath of a devastating California earthquake, the movie follows a helicopter pilot (Dwayne Johnson) and his ex-wife (Carla Gugino) as they struggle to leave Los Angeles in order to retrieve their daughter (Alexandra Daddario) from San Francisco. Warner Bros. Pictures releases the film on May 29th, 2015 next summer.
