I’m a sucker for this stuff! And then of course there’s Jurassic World to follow!
The trailer has been out for months now…I’m sure the makers of this film knew a real possibility of a natural disaster would happen; also if that quake with those amounts of people killed happened here in the states, this movie would not see the light of day.
Lived and grew up in this area for years before moving to the east coast. It is a pretty scary thought of what might be the “worst case scenario” and this movie just might portray that, albeit with tons of exaggerations.
But most of the buildings are quake resistant. And they are not congested like in Nepal or India. So the damage in terms of human life will be much less. East coast has its own quota of floods, snows, storms etc.
Warner Bros. says it will disseminate information about how people can donate to Nepal earthquake relief
Warner Bros. will stick to the original release date of May 29 for its earthquake blockbuster San Andreas despite the devastating tremblor in Nepal, Variety reports.
A studio spokesperson said Wednesday the company debated over moving the release date, but instead chose to alter promotional materials to include information about how people can donate to relief efforts in Nepal. They also accelerated an original public-service campaign that educates people on natural disaster safety and adjusted the messaging to encompass events in Nepal, Variety said.
The trailers and posters, however, will not be changed.
“We will continue to evaluate our worldwide marketing campaign to ensure that we are sensitive to those affected by this tragic event,” a Warner Bros. spokesperson told Variety.
The movie features Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson and Carla Gugino as an estranged couple who travels from Los Angeles to San Francisco to save their daughter after California’s San Andreas fault suffers a magnitude-9 earthquake. The trailer features scenes of Los Angeles skyscrapers tumbling and a massive tsunami bearing down on San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge.
Nepalese police said Thursday morning the death toll from the magnitude-7.8 earthquake had topped 5,500 people across India, Bangladesh, China and Nepal, with an estimated 11,440 injured.
