New Line Cinema has released the first San Andreas trailer for director Brad Peyton’s (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island) upcoming disaster film. Dwayne Johnson stars as a helicopter rescue pilot who must work together with his ex-wife (Carla Gugino) to save their daughter (Alexandra Daddario) after a massive Earthquake strikes California. Unfortunately, this trailer is goofy at best–from the “sad” version of “California Dreamin'” to Johnson’s shocked look when the Hollywood sign falls over to Paul Giamatti solemnly saying that the quake will be felt on the east coast. Actually, we’ve managed to secure an exclusive image of what that that east coast scene will look like.
Watch the first San Andreas trailer after the jump. The film also stars Archie Panjabi, Ioan Gruffudd, Will Yun Lee, Colton Haynes, and Kylie Minogue. San Andreas opens in 3D on May 29, 2015.

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.
