San Andreas (2015) - Ray (Dwayne Johnson)
This trailer proves big, explosive disaster movie still work. Dwayne (don't call him Rock when he's doing drama) Johnson stars in San Andreas as a search and rescue pilot who has to survive the biggest earthquake in American history. I'll admit the genre feels overdone after movies like, but this one is pretty exciting.

There are only a handful of Minority actors that can open a big action movie like this, but Johnson is the man that can make it happen.

Here's the official 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.”

The film also stars Carla Gugino (“Night at the Museum,” TV’s “Entourage”), Alexandra Daddario (“Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters,” TV’s “True Detective”), Ioan Gruffudd (“Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer”), Archie Panjabi (TV’s “The Good Wife”), Hugo Johnstone-Burt (Australian TV’s “Home and Away”), Art Parkinson (TV’s “Game of Thrones”) and Oscar nominee Paul Giamatti (“Cinderella Man”). “San Andreas” was shot on location in The Gold Coast and Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, and in Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Here's the new official San Andreas poster

The film is slated to open in theaters in both 3D and 2D on Friday, May 29, 2015.

Sure, why not? We seem to like our disaster flicks. I'll expect the level of 2012. Although after that film, how much bigger could the disaster be?
I guess once again the coast is toast...

LA goes under again. Impressive they got Paul Giamatt.

Sounds pretty cliche.

I saw the trailer for this the other day and it kind of freaked me out. I grew up outside of SF and sometimes movies like this just hit a little too close to home. I think that officially makes me a total pansy, but it's true! (Not that I probably won't go see it still--kinda adore Johnson!)

I'm a fan of the Rock, and a new earthquake film - why not? Looks like it'd be fun on the big screen.

Fun is why we see films, right? Though again, if it's a success... next year we will have ten of these films knocking down our doors.
