San Andreas Trailer

(Warner Bros.)

San Andreas, which just debuted its first trailer, stars Dwayne Johnson as a man fighting to keep his family alive during a California earthquake that’s so massive, it can be felt on the East Coast.

Johnson plays a search and rescue helicopter pilot (convenient!) who must make his way from Los Angeles to San Francisco to save his only daughter. His estranged wife comes with him, and we’re guessing the disaster strengthens their bond.

The movie takes its name from the San Andreas Fault, which splits open during the off-the-charts earthquake and nearly swallows Johnson’s character. That’s only the beginning. Does the famed Hollywood sign get destroyed? Is L.A. glimpsed in ruin? Does the Hoover Dam break, unleashing hellish floodwaters? Yes, yes, and yes!

If one man can defeat an earthquake, it’s certainly Johnson. The movie also features Carla Gugino, Alexandra Daddario and Paul Giamatti. It opens next May. Check out the first trailer below, and tell us what you think!
