Into the Storm wants us to be scared. It wants us to consider all of the tumultuous weather instances that have plagued us lately, and be worried that the worst is still yet to come. It wants us to cower in our local theaters and stare at the screen, hoping the devastation we see doesn’t find its way off, and into our neighborhoods.
It also wants to be like Twister.
New Line Cinema and Village Roadshow just released (via YouTube) that new trailer for Into the Storm, a found-footage disaster picture that revels in some of the most incredible storm-footage terror clips I think I’ve seen in a film. Remember Kevin Costner’s Pa Kent getting swallowed up by a tornado in Man of Steel? It’s nothing compared to this.
I mean, there are airplanes landing ON TOP OF other airplanes!
According to the official plot synopsis, the movie – directed by Steven Quale – follows a town that is ravaged by "an unprecedented onslaught of tornadoes." Which explains this:
But saying it in a synopsis is one thing. Seeing it is another.
Unlike previous disaster pictures, Into the Storm doesn’t rely on star power. The "stars" appear to be the effects… and they are spectacular. The movie opens in theaters on August 8. It looks like it needs to be seen on the biggest screen possible.
Even if it looks like Twister.
