While this weekend's "Transformers: Age Of Extinction" spends a lot of money and time to explode things with shiny robots in big metropolitan cities, sometimes it's just the weather that can be worrisome. As anyone who has even glimpsed at the news knows, a tornado can wreak deadly havoc with little more than rain or wind. So of course, Hollywood—more than fifteen years after "Twister"—is getting ready to make another tornado tentpole.

"Into The Storm" is coming and a new trailer has arrived for the disaster movie. The premise is simple: over the course of a single day, the town of Silverton is met upon the fury of an unprecedented number of tornadoes. And behind the craziness is "Final Destination 5" director Steven Quayle, who knows a thing or two about putting people into absurd danger.

Starring Richard Armitage, Sarah Wayne Callies, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Arlen Escarpeta, Nathan Kress, Jon Reep and Jeremy Sumpter, "Into The Storm" opens on August 8th.

    If you wanna make a tornado movie, go for it, I don't care. But to base it on what happened in my town (Joplin) is just too much. (For those who don't know, the tornado started at the end of graduation, just like in the trailer, and the drive home from the graduation is where/how several of the people died) It's not only distasteful, but hurtful. It brings to mind things that we hope to forget. It makes me sad that of all the ways they could have gone about this they decided to use what happened here.

    If you want to see what a tornado can do, go to youtube and see the footage from Joplin missouri or Moore oklahoma. Very tacky to air a graduation, since that is when the Joplin sirens went off, and the schools that were destroyed in Moore.

    Looks alright, but I fear some faux global warming / climate change pseudo science is in the mix. I guess we'll wait and see.

    I was thinking the exact same thing. The media, including movies and TV, are another propaganda vehicle for the power elite and have been so for decades, at least going back to Operation Mockingbird in the 50's and probably before.

    Really looking forward to this!!

    I don't understand why ya'll gotta compare this to Twister and assume it'll suck. There hasn't been a solid tornado movie out in nearly 20 years. I'm just excited there is one! And I never had the privalege of seeing Twister in theaters cause i was too young; so I think this will be great see in a theater. Granted, the effects seem the same they were 20 years ago (which is weird), but it isn't going to stop me from enjoying this.

    Anyone catch the semi honking as it was about to slam into the window from above? Like there was supposed to be a driver inside, honking to tell people to get out of the way? Bwah ha ha! I wouldn't be surprised if they had tires squealing too.

  • intothestorm | June 27, 2014 9:59 AMReply

    BrianJ and Mickie seriously? This movie was filmed in the summer of 2012. It is not trying to cash in on recent tragedies.

  • Valetta | July 19, 2014 7:03 PM

    Our graduation & tornado was May 22, 2011. It's disgusting someone wants to make money from the 165 deaths that happened that day. Make a movie about tornados, no problem, but please don't make it about a graduation, with so many parallels. We are still suffering with physical & mental scars.

  • josh081290 | June 27, 2014 8:20 AMReply

    This movie looks awful. Enough said.

  • GuiMom3 | June 27, 2014 2:00 AMReply

    SO totally in!! Can't wait!

  • Dr. Tornado | June 26, 2014 10:26 PMReply

    I've been chasing tornados and have been in several F4 and F5s. This movie is the best yet to come out and I hope they make a sequel. Awesome effects! This movie will be #1 at the box office for several weeks!

  • David Otto | June 26, 2014 10:13 PMReply

    Wow this video is just like Twister and The Night of the Twister Combined, I got to say they must have had to make a new video to trump Twister, but sadly i think this will be a fail. After 5 season of Storm Chasers on Discovery which was a hit, Hollywood decides to take a shot of it, i like to see what happens. The chase vehicle look like TIV 2. We will see what happens

  • Kris | June 26, 2014 9:03 PMReply

    Looks more like a Disaster movie than a Distaster movie. Pretty annoyed, I really wanted to see a Distaster movie.

  • jewels | June 26, 2014 9:03 PMReply

    I fell in love with tornadoes in 1974 with the Great outbreak of tornadoes.. i was only a little kid. When Twister came out i fell in love again. I thought it was great movie,. Not perfect but still Great,. I hoped for a sequel but now that the actor Phillip is gone who played Dusty it would not work. That being said ill give this a whirl ( no pun intended) but fear its more global warming fear mongering disguised as a fun disaster movie. Maybe= im wrong. Ill-wait and see the first reviews. Twister is mocked but it still is a favorite and has seems to have a cult following.. One day it will-be considered a classic,,where will this be. We shall see.By the way why not put Sean Casey and Reed Timmer in as cameo roles? That would be fun and worth the$ to spend at the theater, a place i rarely waste my money.

    Lori!! She's alive!!

  • Dlynn78 | July 10, 2014 7:36 PM

    Haha Kaylin I said the same thing!!

  • BrianJ | June 26, 2014 8:29 PMReply

    So as an Oklahoman, I find several parts of this blatant rip offs of tragedies that happened last year. It's a bit too close to home and I won't be spending my money on this. You're all welcome to enjoy if you so choose, but last May it was elementary school children hiding in a school hallway hoping it would stand up to this and several perished, the armored vehicle is a rip-off of several that would actually survive tornadoes unlike that thing sitting so high off the ground, and we did in fact set a world record for a 2.6 mile wide tornado while losing another 8 people with 150+ injured. This is just...no thank you.

  • Kiwi Stormy | June 26, 2014 8:25 PMReply

    After 5 seasons of Storm Chasers on discovery this is the best Hollywood can come up with?
    you have a TIV2 ripoff that is so high off the ground and such an impractical defense system it would roll away in an EF1 twister, then you have the DOW7 clone with a younger female version of Dr Worman, and to top it off multiple tornadoes from a single supercell in a nice straight line, ARGGGG!
    This requires not just suspension of disbelief but flat out turning your brain off.
    Oh and don't get me started on the building damage scenes.

  • Rick | June 26, 2014 8:18 PMReply

    You people need to chill out..damn buncha complainers. You wanna talk about bullshit..yea Bill and Jo holding onto a well pipe with a leather strap as an F5 runs right over them as they gaze up into the center of the vortex was realistic and plausible...puleeeeeeeze. It's Hollywood, people....enjoy the effects and take it what it's worth...a buncha wind, destruction and kaos. I ain't knocking Twister but this movie looks like it is gonna blow it away with it's effects.

  • Bones | June 26, 2014 7:05 PMReply

    I don't know about anyone else, but does anyone else think the movie is a bit dramatic? I mean, I know how devastating an outbreak of tornados can be on a community, but really? Like huge one encompassing an entire city, what did it like to you all, several miles wide?

  • Brian | June 26, 2014 6:57 PMReply

    Well if they can't convince the masses with falsified fake data about Global Cooling/Warming now Climate Change(really the climate changes?). They'll make dozens of disaster movies to scare the folks into believing it, Pure Hollyweird Bullshit!

  • Emmet | June 26, 2014 6:27 PMReply

    my wife loves the dooms days Global warming bull so guess she will like this movie ,, myself I hate Dooms day impossibility movies.

  • ZigBee | June 26, 2014 6:18 PMReply

    I can already hear the babbling on about global warming. No Dusty, no Dorothy, no "the extreme!", no Jonas, and no cows = no thanks. Looks like they are following the Day After Tomorrow theme... horrible acting and horrible effects.

  • STORM | June 26, 2014 6:09 PMReply

    Watching Reed Timmer ripping his pants on a barb wire fence in front of a tornado is much better than this!

  • Tracey | June 26, 2014 6:03 PMReply

    Bad acting, weather impossibilities, TIV2 rip off AND "Laura" from The Walking Dead came BACK from the dead for a movie that WILL soon be dead, LOL. THAT being said, I can't wait to see it!!! LOL

  • BDK | June 26, 2014 5:42 PMReply

    "They're all over the place!"

    LOL! Sigh.

  • Tracey Rees | June 26, 2014 6:01 PM

    LOL BDK - that one got me too!

  • Kevin | June 26, 2014 5:24 PMReply

    Ummm that vehicle looks too much like TIV2, ripoff.

  • Carmine | June 26, 2014 11:02 PM

    TIV1 & TIV2, but only all the worst parts.. How high is that thing off the ground.. I mean really...

  • Adrian | June 26, 2014 6:23 PM

    Half of TIV2 and Half of TIV1

  • Karen | June 26, 2014 5:17 PMReply

    Most of us in the chaser community lol'd when "Twister" came out, many using the meme "Twister - Its only a movie" But by comparison to this, "Twister" comes out looking like a National Geographic documentary. I figure by August the DVDs of this will be in the 'Two for $5' bin at Walmart.

  • Pinkie | June 26, 2014 5:16 PMReply

    The graphics on the Twister pinball are better than this! I think I may pass.

  • Jenny Carr | June 26, 2014 5:15 PMReply

    I can't believe what I'm reading!? I thought it was awesome and can't wait to see the whole thing! I too fell in love with Twister many years ago. I think I'll fall in love with this too. I was so excited watching the trailer that all I could think was.....(how can I say this without sounding awful)....thank goodness tornadoes are 'coming to light' so more movies are made like this. Very exhilarating! Thanks to the creators!

  • Dustin | June 26, 2014 9:02 PM

    Its a movie not a documentary, it's supposed to be fake and unbelievable! True tornadoes aren't cool, they tear peoples lives apart as much as the objects the touch. I was near Moore when the tornado hit, and its sad that people and children lost their lives, and am a little uneasy with the school parts because of that reason, but this is a movie and truth is not gonna bring in money so enjoy it or dont but I will watch it because it looks like a good movie... Idk thats my input

    Tough crowd here right? Looks good to me :)

  • Mickie | June 26, 2014 5:04 PMReply

    WHAT is wrong with you? People, children died in Joplin and in Moore, so you make a movie with a graduation and a school scene?! Thoughtless and tactless.

  • Tim | July 20, 2014 11:50 AM

    What is wrong with you is the real question?!!!! Joplin and Moore are not the only towns to be devastated by a tornado. Big deal there is a graduation ceremony! Make all the stupid comparisons you want...but tornados will continue to happen and kill people in farms, in towns and in schools, got it!? They hit everywhere. Should they stop making movies about tornadoes killing people in farms?!!! It's based on reality and tornadoes can happen again to people being killed in schools. So pull your head out of your narrow minded self and get a grip, Joplin and Moore aren't the only ones to be hit by tornados and suffered loss.

  • Vicky | June 26, 2014 4:44 PMReply

    This looks good but after falling in love with twister, seeing this makes me realize how much more realistic twister really is.

  • Brandon | June 26, 2014 4:43 PMReply

    This looks like one of those B movies but with better actors. Can we just get Sean Casey to release Tornado Alley around the world?

  • Ed | June 26, 2014 4:39 PMReply

    You both are nuts.

  • Ryan | June 26, 2014 4:27 PMReply

    Twister had better tornado graphics

    I'll take Twister over this crap any day of the week.
