The Rock faces a rolling series of catastrophes in the new disaster movie coming our way next year.

It's a good thing the West Coast has a lot of landmarks, because San Andreas is going to knock down all of them. In the trailer alone, a massive earthquake destroys the Hollywood Sign, downtown San Francisco, and even the Hoover Dam. ("Damn," we hope someone says at that part.) Tasked with saving countless minor actors from HBO dramas is the Rock, who, despite his name, does not play part of the Earth's crust. He's a helicopter pilot, which is pretty much the only heroic job available in a movie about earthquakes.

San Andreas was filmed in Queensland and it comes out in Australian cinemas in May 2015.
