“People need to know that the shaking is not over,” the scientist ominously warns. “The earth will literally crack open, and you will feel it on the East Coast.” Here’s the first full trailer for San Andreas, the disaster flick from New Line Cinema and Village Roadshow in which the Golden State’s feared titular fault finally gives up The Big One. And how. Dwayne Johnson stars as a helicopter rescue pilot who sets out from Los Angeles with his estranged wife en route to San Francisco to save their only daughter. Dig the creepy “California Dreamin'” cover, the wave about to drown the Golden Gate Bridge and the shot of the Hollywood sign toppling like a spilled bowl of alphabet soup.
Brad Peyton, who directed Johnson in Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, helms the film scripted by Carlton Cuse. Carla Gugino, Alexandra Daddario, Ioan Gruffudd, Archie Panjabi, Hugo Johnstone-Burt, Art Parkinson and Paul Giamatti co-star. Warner Bros will open the actioner May 29 in 3D and 2D but, regrettably, not in Sensurround. While Deadliners of a certain age Google that reference, have a gander at the poster for San Andreas. And maybe bust out that untouched pamphlet about survival kits that’s in your desk somewhere.
