New Line Cinema and Village Roadshow have released a trailer teaser for Into the Storm. The found-footage movie takes place in a small town that’s under siege by a series of tornados, and it’s captured from the perspective of storm chasers and the townspeople. Since this is a trailer teaser (a trend that remains obnoxious as ever), there’s not much to show except a bit of a wind tunnel. When the trailer is released tomorrow, I’m betting there will be more wind and fully-formed tornados. Hooray for tornados.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer teaser for strong winds. The film stars Richard Armitage, Sarah Wayne Callies, Matt Walsh, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Arlen Escarpeta, Max Deacon, Nathan Kress, Jeremy Sumpter, Kyle Davis, Jon Reep, and Scott Lawrence. Into the Storm opens August 8th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Into the Storm:
From New Line Cinema, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures, comes the tornado disaster film “Into the Storm.” Steven Quale (“Final Destination 5”) directs the film, which is produced by Todd Garner (“Zookeeper,” “Knight and Day”).
In the span of a single day, the town of Silverton is ravaged by an unprecedented onslaught of tornadoes. The entire town is at the mercy of the erratic and deadly cyclones, even as storm trackers predict the worst is yet to come. Most people seek shelter, while others run towards the vortex, testing how far a storm chaser will go for that once-in-a-lifetime shot.
Told through the eyes and lenses of professional storm chasers, thrill-seeking amateurs, and courageous townspeople, “Into the Storm” throws you directly into the eye of the storm to experience Mother Nature at her most extreme.
