Watch: First Trailer for Dwayne Johnson’s ‘San Andreas’

Destruction dominates in the first trailer for New Line’s earthquake thriller “San Andreas,” starring Dwayne Johnson.

The trailer — posted by Johnson on his Twitter account — shows a 9.0 quake hitting California, bringing down an array of buildings in Los Angeles and San Francisco, a major dam and the Hollywood sign.

“Where will you be, who will you be with, when everything falls apart?” the trailer asks.

Paul Giamatti, Archie Panjabi, Art Parkinson, Carla Gugino and Alexandra Daddario also star in the film. “I cannot emphasize this enough: You need to get out, and I mean now,” Giamatti’s character yells in the trailer.

Even though the movie is set in California, nearly all of it was shot in Australia. Johnson portrays a copter pilot who rescues his daughter in San Francisco.

Brad Peyton is directing from a script by Carlton Cuse. Beau Flynn is producing through his FlynnPictureCo. along with Village Roadshow.

“San Andreas” opens May 29.

    You think this may be too soon after Napal?

    I love a good disaster film but from the guy that gave us cats and dogs 2 I’m not sure about the trailer. Less can really be more but I’m sensing that hasn’t even been considered!

    The trailer looks great, but I’m not enthused to go to the theater and see a movie that resembles all the other disaster movies I’ve seen so many times before. But I will watch if it comes out on Netflix.
