New Line has just released both a new poster and trailer for Brad Peyton’s (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island) upcoming disaster film ‘San Andreas’. The film stars Dwayne Johnson as a search and rescue helecopter pilot who “with his estranged wife (Carla Guguno) make their way from Los Angeles to San Francisco to save their only daughter”. Watch the trailer below:

As you can see from the trailer, the San Andreas seems to be yet another forgettable big budget disaster movie (shades of 2012 anyone?). While I won’t say that I will be seeing this in theaters myself, I am curious if the film will actually be able to rise above other disaster flicks of the past few decades. We will find out when the film is released on May 29th, 2015.

Here is the official Poster, along with the synopsis below:
