"I cannot emphasize this enough. You need to get out, and I mean now." California crumbles in the first teaser trailer for San Andreas, the earthquake action thriller starring Dwayne Johnson. Now obviously a disaster of this scale wouldn't be something to be excited about, but we're surprised that a disaster flick like this paints such a somber portrait of the movie, especially since it's coming from director Brad Peyton of Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. But it's actually a little refreshing to have a teaser trailer that features massive destruction, and doesn't just go for the big, fun action angle. But will the movie be good? Watch! Here's the first trailer for Brad Peyton's San Andreas from Warner Bros. Pictures: San Andreas is directed by Brad Peyton (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island) and written by Allan Loeb (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps), Carlton Cuse (executive producer and writer »

He’s part of the cast for Divergent and his blockbuster mettle will be tested with The Fantastic Four, but Miles Teller is sticking with the indie world for a new potential role, entering talks to star in The Only Living Boy In New York for Amazing Spider-Man director Marc Webb.Taking its title from the Simon and Garfunkel song, the coming-of-age plot finds a young man learning that his oppressive father is having an affair. But when he tries to shut down the romance, he falls for the woman involved. Cue further familial dysfunction but also a chance for a learning experience thanks to some wise words from an odd neighbour.The film has sat in development for years like an unwanted shelter puppy, with at least one director (Seth Gordon) taking a look before moving on to other possibilities. Webb himself has been attached to the script draft »
One of cinema’s most in-demand young actors today, Miles Teller, is continuing his foray into making kick-ass indies. Winning over countless throngs as the teen jazz drummer in this fall’s Whiplash, he’s made no bones about harbouring a deep passion for character-driven work. While he’s dabbled with mainstream studio fare like the Divergent series and Fantastic Four, he’s back from the lure of comic book fame to tackle the lead role in Marc Webb’s The Only Living Boy In New York.
The 500 Days Of Summer helmer similarly explored the world of studio franchises, as he was chiefly responsible for The Amazing Spider-Man reboot at Sony. He might be leaving the webbed superhero behind, but he won’t be relocating for this next feature. Much like the Spider-Man series, Living Boy is housed over at Sony, who put the pic on hold so Webb could »

Allan Loeb penned the script, which tells the tale of a young man who learns that his overbearing father is having an affair. The son tries to stop it, but ends up becoming involved with the woman as well.
The film was put on hold as Webb focused on “The Amazing Spider-Man” franchise for Sony. Webb is now weighing “Living Boy” and the Fox Searchlight drama “The Gifted.” With Teller committing though, it now seems likely this will be Webb’s next film — and his first non “Spider-Man” pic since the indie smash “(500) Days of Summer.”
As for Teller, the actor has shown a strong range by jumping from popular commercial pics like the upcoming “Fantastic Four” reboot at »

Relativity Media didn't have much success with their family sci-fi adventure Earth to Echo, but that doesn't mean they're giving up on the genre. Deadline has word that the studio is developing Out of This World, another sci-fi adventure about a kid named Gardner who leads a rather unique life because he's raised by scientists in secret on a Mars colony after his astronaut mother passes away. Flash forward 16 years and Gardner heads back to Earth in order to road trip across America with a young woman, in search of the father that he has never known. That's an interesting twist on an otherwise familiar coming-of-age tale. The script comes from Allan Loeb (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, Rock of Ages) and Hector and the Search for Happiness director Peter Chelsom will be at the helm of the film. Considering the charm that Chelsom brought to romantic comedies with Serendipity, »

Australian pop star and actress Kylie Minogue has joined the cast of the 3D disaster adventure San Andreas, which is currently shooting on the Gold Coast of Australia, the actress' home country. The actress/singer is also expected to contribute to the soundtrack.
While Kylie Minogue's character is being kept under wraps, she joins a cast that includes Dwayne Johnson, Carla Gugino, Alexandra Daddario, Colton Haynes and Art Parkinson. The story centers on a Los Angeles special ops firefighter (Dwayne Johnson) who travels to San Francisco with his ex-wife (Carla Gugino) to rescue their daughter (Alexandra Daddario) after a massive earthquake strikes.
Brad Peyton is directing from a script that was originally written by Jeremy Passmore and Andre Fabrizio, which was reworked by Allan Loeb, Carlton Cuse, Chad Hayes and Carey Hayes. Warner Bros. has issued a June 5, 2015 release date.
Though Kylie Minogue is best known for her singing career, having won a Grammy Award, released 12 albums and served as a judge on the U.K. version of The Voice, she actually got her start as an actress on the soap opera Neighbors. Since then, she’s dabbled in acting a few times, appearing on an episode of Doctor Who and in films like Moulin Rouge!, Jack & Diane and Holy Motors. Now, she’s signed on for another supporting role, in the Dwayne Johnson-led earthquake thriller San Andreas.
Minogue’s role is being kept under wraps for the time being, but the film stars Johnson as a special ops firefighter who, along with his ex-wife (Carla Gugino), makes the perilous trip from Los Angeles to San Francisco in search of their daughter (Alexandra Daddario) after the ‘Big One’ hits and utterly decimates California.

With The Day After Tomorrow director Roland Emmerich now pursuing (slightly) more serious fare than his usual effects-driven blockbusters, there has been a certain deficiency of big-budget disaster thrillers at the box office lately. And unless you count the found-footage film Into the Storm, this summer won’t offer much for fans of the subgenre. The summer of 2015, however, is a different story. In June of next year, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will star in an epic disaster thriller titled San Andreas, which explores what happens when a colossal, long-dreaded earthquake devastates the West Coast.
In addition to offering plenty of jaw-dropping sequences of destruction and explosive action scenes, San Andreas may also offer some moments of genuine drama, if its strong cast is any indication. Today, Ioan Gruffudd (Fantastic Four) signed on for the film, joining Johnson, Carla Gugino, Alexandra Daddario, Colton Haynes, Art Parkinson, Archie Panjabi, Morgan Griffin and Todd Williams. »

Though 2015 is all but assured to be one of the most competitive summers in box office history, New Line has every reason to still be confident in the ability of their blockbuster, earthquake thriller San Andreas, to make waves. After all, it stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, one of the most consistently bankable action stars working today. In fact, Forbes named him 2013′s top-grossing actor, for the cumulative successes of Snitch, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Pain & Gain and Fast & Furious 6.
San Andreas will see Johnson playing a special-ops firefighter who journeys into San Andreas with his ex-wife (Carla Gugino) after “The Big One” hits, intent on rescuing his daughter (Alexandra Daddario). Now, New Line is rounding out the cast with some more familiar faces.

Blockbuster season is almost upon us, but what will next summer's big hitters be? Here's a roundup
Once upon a time, summer blockbuster season 2015 was set to be packed with the biggest collision of big franchises we'd ever seen together. However, one by one, lots of these films moved away to other dates. As such, you won't be seeing Star Wars: Episode VII, Pirates Of The Caribbean 5, Independence Day 2, Batman Vs Superman or Finding Dory in a cinema next summer.
But even with those films gone, there's still no shortage of huge movies battling for your cash in a year's time. And as is traditional for us at the start of summer blockbuster season, we've taken a look at what's coming up in 12 months' time.
Production on Fast & Furious 7 will be getting back in swing in April, so it sounds like Dwayne Johnson might be pretty busy over the next few months, because in four weeks he's also slated to start shooting the disaster action thriller San Andreas. Sin City and Sucker Punch star Carla Gugino just joined the film about a special ops firefighter (Johnson) and his ex-wife (Gugino) as they attempt to leave Los Angeles and head to San Francisco in order to rescue their daughter (Alexandra Daddario) after a massive earthquake strikes California. Now we have a first look at Johnson looking like a bad ass with his chopper. Look below! San Andreas first look from Dwayne Johnson's Instagram in a wider version from ComingSoon: San Andreas is directed by Brad Peyton (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island) and written by Allan Loeb (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps), Carlton Cuse (executive producer »

Luckily, it looks like Johnson won’t be making the trek alone, with news that Carla Gugino has signed on for a major supporting part.
Gugino, known for her roles in Sin City and Watchmen, is set to play the ex-wife of Johnson’s character, who journeys with him from Los Angeles to San Francisco to save their daughter after a gargantuan earthquake destroys California.
