“Where will you be, who will you be with, when everything falls apart?” are the lines written at the beginning of the first “San Andreas” trailer. Read on for further details.
The movie stars Dwayne Johnson as he takes on the role of a rescue-helicopter pilot, who searches for his daughter after a massive 9.0 earthquake hit California.
The trailer was posted on Johnson’s twitter account on Dec. 10, 2014. The actor captioned, “On May 29th, you will feel it too. Your EXCLUSIVE first look at #SANANDREAS. #WhereWillYouBe.”

The release of the trailer signals the beginning of promotion of the film, which is set to air on May 29, 2015. The hashtags #SanAndreas and #WhereWillYouBe will be used as one of the movie’s promotion on social media. The movie was initially set to debut on June 5, 2015, alongside DreamWorks Animation’s “B.O.O: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations.” Its new release date will compete with the animated film “Monster Trucks,” Cameron Crowe’s comedy film and George Clooney’s adventure movie.
“San Andreas” focuses on a 9.0 earthquake along the San Andreas fault, causing massive destruction on the west coast.
“2014 has been a bad year for California, which ended up trashed in both ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ and ‘Godzilla,’” said Graeme McMillan. Although the movie is set in California, majority of the scenes in the movie were shot in Australia.
“I cannot emphasize this enough: You need to get out and I mean now,” yells Paul Giamatti’s character in the trailer. Giamatti’s character also teases the impending destruction that’s about to hit the west coast.
“San Andreas” will star Carla Gugino (who will play as Johnson’s wife), Archie Panjabi and Alexandra Daddario. Singer and Grammy-winner, Kylie Minogue will also take on a supporting role in the movie, although her role is still kept a secret.
Brad Peyton will be directing the film. Peyton has worked with Johnson in the movie, “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.” Carey and Chad Hayes (“The Conjuring”) are currently working on the script that was initially drafted by Andre Fabrizio and Jeremy Passmore.
“San Andreas” will be released by Warner Bros. on May 29, 2015.
