Imagine the disappointment when gaming fans clicked on a link to watch the ‘San Andreas’ movie trailer and realized that it’s not a big screen adaptation of the popular Rockstar game. The trailer is however for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s massive disaster movie set to be released on May 29 next year. The buff star plays a rescue-helicopter pilot who must work together with his ex-wife (Carla Gugino) to save their daughter (Alexandra Daddario) after a massive Earthquake strikes California. It really looks as cheesy at it sounds as we get to see how California is destroyed all over again. Set to a very dreary version of “California Dreamin” by The Mamas And The Papas, the golden state disappears before our eyes as a major earthquake wreaks havoc. Johnson, Gugino and Daddario is joined by Archie Panjabi, Ioan Gruffudd, Will Yun Lee, Colton Haynes, and Kylie Minogue.
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.”
