Dwayne Johnson and Carla Gugino spring into action in the first of five new photos from the upcoming 3D disaster thriller San Andreas. USA Today reports that the first trailer is arriving tomorrow, with these images giving fans a better look at the main characters, including a few behind-the-scenes shots as well. The story centers on Ray (Dwayne Johnson), a helicopter rescue pilot who is in the air, talking to his ex-wife Emma (Carla Gugino), when the largest earthquake on record, a.k.a. the Big One, hits and decimates Los Angeles. Ray and Emma must make their way to San Francisco to save their daughter Blake (Alexandra Daddario) before the massive quake hits the Bay Area.
"The most incredible thing I found out doing the research was just how overdue for a massive earthquake we are. Like 100 years overdue. It's incredible, and scary as hell. It sounds like a movie line, but it's a matter of when, not if."
The actor is reuniting with his Journey 2: The Mysterious Island filmmaker Brad Peyton for San Andreas. The director revealed that their plan is to show what the world's largest earthquake would look like.
"We're going to show what the largest earthquake ever recorded would look like, all in a highly populated area. And this earthquake would have the potential for global impact because the Earth is having an event."
Dwayne Johnson also reveals that he utilizes a number of different vehicles on this mission to save his daughter, while commenting on the film's huge stakes.
"It all goes down. The damage, destruction, the loss of lives. Everything that you know on the West Coast doesn't see tomorrow. There's nothing that I don't pilot or drive. We utilize everything we can to get there. This has big stakes. It's entertaining and also has heart."
The actor also added that this film lead him to get his own home ready for when the Big One eventually will strike.
"Now we have multiple earthquake kits at home. And when you realize the magnitude of this, you go home grateful for the days you have. It gives you a different perspective. It makes you stop and think that there's no beating Mother Nature. She's the toughest mama around."
Colton Haynes and Art Parkinson co-star in this action-thriller, which arrives in theaters May 29, 2015. Take a look at the new photos from San Andreas, and stay tuned for the first trailer arriving tomorrow.
