New Line Cinema and Village Roadshow Pictures have released a new Into the Storm trailer. The film concerns a group of extreme storm chasers who document the “storm of the century” when it hits a small town. And judging by the trailer that really seems to be about all there is. I don’t see much in the way of characters or a plot beyond a father trying to save his son, who’s trapped under rubble. It seems like a bunch of visual effects guys got together, and wanted to make a movie about tornados destroying stuff. If that was their goal, they have succeeded.
Hit the jump to check out the new Into the Storm trailer. The film stars Richard Armitage, Sarah Wayne Callies, Matt Walsh, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Arlen Escarpeta, Max Deacon, Nathan Kress, Jeremy Sumpter, Kyle Davis, and Jon Reep. Into the Storm opens August 8th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Into the Storm:
In the span of a single day, the town of Silverton is ravaged by an unprecedented onslaught of the most furious twisters they’ve ever seen. 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 seek shelter; 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, the movie throws you directly into the eye of the storm to experience Mother Nature at her most extreme.
