San Andreas does for California what 2012 did for the entire world.
In the aftermath of a massive earthquake in California, a rescue-chopper pilot makes a dangerous journey across the state in order to rescue his estranged daughter.
It may seem like a backwards step to go from destroying the planet to destroying just one area of it, but then again, 2012 was Roland Emmerich doing what he does best, and this film is directed by Brad Peyton, whose credits include er…. Journey 2 The Mysterious Island and Cats & Dogs 2.
The large cast includes Dwayne Johnson, Alexandra Daddario, Carla Gugino, Colton Haynes, Ioan Gruffudd, Paul Giamatti, Archie Panjabi, Will Yun Lee and Kylie Minogue, and while it looks like a “check your brain in at the door”-type of movie, it’s definitely one that’ll look good on the big screen.
San Andreas is released in UK cinemas on May 29th 2015.
