The latest trailer for the upcoming movie Into the Storm shows the terrifying and devastating effects of tornados. I'm glad I don't live in an area that is subject to these monstrous tornados. The movie looks incredibly intense, and I have to see it. We haven't seen a decent tornado movie since Twister, and l don't care what anyone says, I loved Twister. And No! Sharknado doesn't count. This looks like it will be an entertaining popcorn flick.
The movie was directed by Steven Quale (Avatar - second unit), and it stars Richard Armitage (The Hobbit) and Sarah Wayne Callies (The Walking Dead). The story focuses on a small town that is hit by one of the most chaotic storms ever. Here's a more detailed synopsis:
In the span of a single day, the town of Silverton is ravaged by an unprecedented onslaught of the most furious twisters they’ve ever seen. The entire town is at the mercy of the erratic and deadly cyclones, even as storm trackers predict the worst is yet to come. Most seek shelter; others run towards the vortex, testing how far a storm chaser will go for that once-in-a-lifetime shot. Told through the eyes and lenses of professional storm chasers, thrill-seeking amateurs and courageous townspeople, the movie throws you directly into the eye of the storm to experience Mother Nature at her most extreme.
Into the Storm also stars Matt Walsh, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Arlen Escarpeta, Max Deacon, Nathan Kress, Jeremy Sumpter, Kyle Davis and Jon Reep. It opens in theaters on August 8th.
