The upcoming disaster film San Andreas is unfortunately not called “Dwayne Johnson vs. An Earthquake”, but that may be for good reason. Instead of fighting, the movie instead finds Johnson filling the role of a helicopter rescue pilot, hence all the “saving lives” stuff seen in a new batch of images that Warner Bros. just released. Directed by Brad Peyton (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island), the film takes place around the events of a massive Earthquake shaking California to its core, putting Johnson’s ex-wife (Carla Gugino) and daughter (Alexandra Daddario) right in harm’s way.
Peruse through over 30 high-resolution images from the film below. Paul Giamatti, Archie Panjabi, Ioan Gruffudd, Hugo Johnstone-Burt, and Art Parkinson also star. The film opens in theaters on May 29th.
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.
