I love disaster movies. 2012, Twister, Volcano, etc…These are things that I simply love going to the theater to see. I know they’re crap (for the most part) and nothing more than popcorn flicks built for entertainment, but that’s okay. I’m all about story and looking at cinema as high art, but there are times in my life where I just want to see shit blow up. It looks like they’ll be plenty of that going on based on this first trailer for Into the Storm:
The trailer says nothing at all about the story of the film, nor even gives hints at who the main characters may be. Let’s face it, though, that’s not what this film is about, nor will it be the reason you see it in theaters.
From New Line Cinema, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures, comes the tornado disaster film “Into the Storm.” Steven Quale (“Final Destination 5”) directs the film, which is produced by Todd Garner (“Zookeeper,” “Knight and Day”).
In the span of a single day, the town of Silverton is ravaged by an unprecedented onslaught of tornadoes. The entire town is at the mercy of the erratic and deadly cyclones, even as storm trackers predict the worst is yet to come. Most people seek shelter, while others run towards the vortex, testing how far a storm chaser will go for that once-in-a-lifetime shot.
Told through the eyes and lenses of professional storm chasers, thrill-seeking amateurs, and courageous townspeople, “Into the Storm” throws you directly into the eye of the storm to experience Mother Nature at her most extreme.
Into the Storm will swoop into theaters on August 8, 2014.
