Dwayne Johnson stars in epic new San Andreas trailer: watch now

A brand new trailer has arrived online for San Andreas, Brad Peyton’s disaster movie in which Dwayne Johnson attempts to save his daughter from the chaos caused by a devastating Californian earthquake.

“The earth will literally crack open,” says Paul Giamatti helpfully, as all hell breaks loose in this latest trailer, with buildings tumbling left right and centre.

Fortunately for Johnson, however, he has access to a helicopter and some of the niftiest evasive manoeuvres you could ever ask for from a pilot. Looks like he’s going to need them…

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

It’s been a while since a true disaster epic smashed its way into cinemas, and this latest effort certainly doesn’t skimp on spectacle. After all, who wouldn’t want to see the Rock drive a speedboat up a massive tidal wave?

And a new poster for the film has also dropped in, check it out below:

Directed by Peyton and co-starring Carla Gugino and Alexandra Daddario, San Andreas will open in the UK and US on 29 May 2015.
