With directing luminary Ridley Scott and franchise big shot Simon Kinberg behind him, Kenneth Branagh will have a huge sway of »

With production now underway on the long-rumoured sequel to 1996’s blockbuster sci-fi Independence Day, Collider has posted an official synopsis for the film, which appeared on 20th Century Fox’s promotional material for the upcoming Licensing Expo 2015 in Las Vegas.

7 June 2015 3:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to The Wrap, we’ve got a first look photo of the cast for Ricky Gervais’ Netflix original movie Special Correspondents, which sees Gervais starring alongside Eric Bana (Deliver Us From Evil), Vera Farmiga (Bates Motel), Kelly Macdonald (Boardwalk Empire), Kevin Pollak (The Usual Suspects), America Ferrera (Ugly Betty), Raúl Castillo (Looking), Benjamin Bratt (Law & Order), Bill Lake (The Hurricane), Meghan Heffern (Chloe), Ari Cohen (Gangland Undercover) and Mimi Kuzyk (The Day After Tomorrow)…

San Andreas Review: Rooting For The Villain?

4 June 2015 4:55 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

I love disaster movies. The bigger the better. I've grown up with disaster movies, like The Towering Inferno, The Poseidon Adventure, Airport '77, and even more recent Roland Emmerich films like 2012 and The Day After Tomorrow. There's something inspiring about watching humanity try to overcome an evil so grand that it can take lives and renders our way of life so void in such a flash, that it's compelling. Unfortunately, in the newest disaster film, San Andreas, that important cog is taken out, ripped away by the film's villain -- Dwayne Johnson's Ray, an L.A. Fire and rescue helicopter-pilot. That's right, Dwayne Johnson is the villain in this movie, and any hopes of humanity coming together and overcoming the state of California being ripped in half and then dunked by a huge tsunami is thrown away by one man's selfish gambit.

Box Office Democracy: San Andreas

2 June 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I’ve been dreading San Andreas since the first trailer I saw of it. I don’t like movies where cities get destroyed especially if they’re cities I happen to live in, I think 9/11 ruined that for me forever. I do, however, have a deep, profound, love for Dawyne “The Rock” Johnson going back to the late 90s, long before any buildings fell down around me. San Andreas is a battle between a genre that’s felt stale for as long as I’ve been aware of it, one that offends me personally, and a man who is possibly the greatest American action star in history. Unfortunately, not even The Rock can carry this movie and judging from the size of his arms these days that’s probably the only thing he can’t carry.

San Andreas is the same as Volcano, which is the same as The Day After Tomorrow, »

How The Rock’s Earth-Shaking ‘San Andreas’ Debut Ranks in Disaster Movie History

31 May 2015 6:11 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

So how does this weekend’s eye-popping $53.2 million debut of the earthquake epic “San Andreas,” starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, measure up against the box-office debuts of other disaster movies? That depends on how you slice it, or more specifically, how you define “disaster movie.” If you take the purist approach and limit the films to acts of God, Mother Nature and other natural occurrences, the answer is pretty good – third place. Only the openings of two movies directed by Roland Emmerich — the climate change saga “The Day After Tomorrow” from 2004 and 2009’s global warming epic “2012” — rank »

Friday Box Office: San Andreas Opens in First; Aloha Gets Buried

30 May 2015 9:29 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Two new wide releases hit theatres on Friday, though only one made a noticeable impact. That would be Warner Bros.’ San Andreas, which easily took first place on Friday with an estimated $18.2 million. That’s a bit higher than expected and puts the PG-13 disaster movie on track for at least $47 million through Sunday. There have certainly been bigger openings in the disaster genre. On this same weekend in 2004, Roland Emmerich’s The Day After Tomorrow claimed $68.7 million and, in November 2009, Sony’s 2012 opened with $65.2 million. Even so, the genre has not been a safe box office bet in recent years. Where films with a little something extra (Godzilla, say, or zombies in World War Z) have opened well, straight-up disaster movies like last summer’s Into the Storm have struggled in theatrical release.

‘San Andreas’ Set to Rock Box Office with $47 Million Debut, ‘Aloha’ Left in the Dust

30 May 2015 8:13 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros.’ “San Andreas” is no box office disaster, with the 3D action film drawing $18.2 million on Friday, setting it on track for a projected weekend haul of $47 million at 3,777 locations and smashing past early estimates that put it around the $40 million mark. Cameron Crowe’s “Aloha,” meanwhile, was left in the dust, eyeing a modest $10-11 million weekend after a slow Friday that drew approximately $3.6 million at 2,815 sites.

Critics may not be giving “San Andreas” points for its brains, but the Dwayne Johnson film is certainly demonstrating its brawn — its strong performance is the best of Johnson’s career outside the “Fast & Furious” franchise, handily beating the opening weekend haul for “Hercules” ($29.8 million), “Pain and Gain” ($20.2 million) and “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” ($40.5 million).

There’s still a chasm between “San Andreas” and the opening weekend tallies for Roland Emmerich’s similarly cataclysmic movies, “The Day After Tomorrow” ($68.7 million) and “2012” ($65.2 million »

William Fichtner Takes Lead Role In Independence Day 2

29 May 2015 10:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After years as a character actor in flicks as diverse as Black Hawk DownThe Dark Knight and The Perfect Storm, William Fichtner is finally landing major roles. The actor, last seen in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, has signed on to play a top general in Independence Day 2.

Fichtner’s character will first appear in the next Independence Day sequel before becoming a more central player (possibly even the main antagonist) in the already-planned third and fourth movies.

It’s great to see Fichtner scoring bigger parts in blockbuster fare. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, in which he played villain Eric Sacks, was a breakthrough pic for the actor, actually allowing him to showcase a dramatic range that has been reined in in his past projects.

In Independence Day 2, he’ll join a cast of fresh faces and familiar franchise players, including newcomers Maika Monroe (The GuestIt Follows), Jessie Usher »

San Andreas – The Review

28 May 2015 5:37 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

I’d gladly pay $12 to again watch San Francisco reduced to rubble in the exhilarating, mother-of-all-disaster movies San Andreas. Director Brad Peyton’s popcorn epic closely mirrors the films of Roland Emmerich (especially 2012 but also The Day After Tomorrow), with the protagonists having to venture far from safety to rescue wayward loved ones caught up in the chaos. If you go simply to see the left coast get hammered by an angry bursts of unstoppable power, trust me, you won’t leave disappointed.

The recipe hasn’t changed much since the days of tasty Irwin Allen disaster meatballs like The Towering Inferno and Earthquake. In San Andreas, Dwayne Johnson plays Ray Gaines, an La Fire Department first-responder separated from his wife Emma (Carla Gugino) after a daughter’s drowning leaves him racked with guilt. Emma is ready to move in with her wealthy architect boyfriend Daniel (Ioan Gruffudd), while daughter »

Dwayne Johnson’s ‘San Andreas’ Ready to Shake Up Disaster Movie Genre

27 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Disaster films were the comicbook movies of the 1970s — and saw a resurgence in the ’90s with megahits like “Titanic” and “Twister” — but the genre has become nearly extinct.

Filmmakers have recently tried to revive these films, but with the exception of Roland Emmerich’s visions of an Earth beset by floods, storms and ice ages in “2012” and “The Day After Tomorrow,” other attempts to make disaster a staple of the moviegoing diet, such as last summer’s “Into the Storm” or 2006’s “Poseidon,” have been shunned by audiences.

San Andreas” is hoping to shake up that trend when it debuts May 29 with an epic story of California rocked by the worst earthquake in history. But the team behind the $110 million adventure film acknowledges it’s taking a big gamble.

“We’re not a franchise film,” said star Dwayne Johnson. “We’re not connected to any superhero mythology. We’re »

San Andreas Review

27 May 2015 4:07 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Brad Peyton.

Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Carla Gugino, Alexandra Daddario, Ioan Gruffudd, Archie Panjabi, Paul Giamatti, Kylie Minogue

Certificate: 12A

Running Time: 114 minutes

Synopsis: After a devastating earthquake hits California, a Los Angeles Fire Department rescue-helicopter pilot (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson) and his ex-wife (Carla Gugino) attempt to leave Los Angeles and head to San Francisco to find and rescue their daughter (Alexandra Daddario).

San Andreas joins a long list of disaster movies that have been hurtled our way over the past few years; from the heights of Irwin Allen’s epics of the 1960s and 1970s (see The Towering Inferno, Earthquake, The Poseidon Adventure), to the more recent CGI affairs, most of which were thrown at the screen by German director Roland Emmerich (2012, The Day After Tomorrow). While most of those movies relied on high-octane effects and a multitude of characters led by one or two big name stars, »

San Andreas review

26 May 2015 2:15 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Rock vs Earthquakes? Well, not quite, but San Andreas is still a decent enough disaster movie.

San Andreas could be one of the easiest films to pitch in a review, as your predisposition towards it can be gauged by two simple questions: 1) Are you a fan of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson? 2) Do you love effects driven disaster movies that pit character archetypes against massive peril? If the answer is yes to both, then please proceed in an orderly fashion to your nearest cinema, purchase snacks of choice and let the loud and destructive spectacle entertain you.

After last year saw Into The Storm bring back some Twister style antics to the big screen, so San Andreas plays out like a combination of 1974’s Earthquake and the Dennis Quaid’s fight against a slight chill in The Day After Tomorrow (minus the ropey CGI wolves). The central plot follows the »
