New San Andreas Trailer Ruins California, Promises Even More Destruction

I still can't believe this isn't a Roland Emmerich movie.

It should be, right? It's got the destruction of landmarks on a massive scale, a cast of thousands, and someone giving dire warnings that — just guessing — won't be heeded until it's too late. And as have the Emmerich films, so does this one have a cast full of talents that give you the tiny hope that this film will be better than it is:

  • Dwayne Johnson
  • Alexandra Daddario
  • Carla Gugino
  • Colton Haynes
  • Archie Panjab
  • Ioan Gruffudd
  • Will Yun Lee
  • Paul Giamatti

Also, Kylie Minogue will be there.

I love/hate this movie so much. Nothing cheers me up quite like seeing something happen that I spent my whole childhood preparing for — a giant California earthquake — be depicted in such an amazingly unrealistic way. I swear, in one shot I can see my old apartment building crumble into pieces.

May 29th is so far away.

I'm sorry, I stopped when Paul Giamatti said that the Earth will "literally" crack open and they will feel it on the East Coast. Because...that's how fault lines work?

I've lived my entire life in California. I've slept through earthquakes. I'm preeettty sure you won't feel even a giant one on the other side of the continent.
