“San Andreas” will rumble a week early after the disaster film shifted from an early June to late May release date.
The film centers on a rescue helicopter pilot (Dwayne Johnson) who is searching for his daughter in the aftermath of a devastating earthquake. It will be released in 3D and two dimensions.
The New Line production was originally slated to debut on June 5, when it would have squared off against DreamWorks Animation’s “B.O.O: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations.”
In its new slot, “San Andreas” will compete against Cameron Crowe’s untitled comedy, the animated film “Monster Trucks” and “Insidious: Chapter 3.” It will also contend with the second weekend of “Tomorrowland,” a big-budget adventure starring George Clooney, and the Melissa McCarthy action comedy “Spy.”
