Extreme weather events:they're happening more frequently and, at least in the new trailer for "Into the Storm," they're coming for all of us.

The action thriller, set in the unlucky town of Silverton, follows a team of professional storm chasers (and some high-octane amateurs) as they seek to study and also escape from an unthinkable onslaught of super tornados.  Sure, we've seen stormy weather on screen before in films like "Noah" and "Twister."  But in this film, it's not the twister you have to look out for, it's the twisters.  As in plural.  Oh, and one of the tornadoes is made of fire.  (Don't ask--at least it doesn't have sharks!)

The film's initial teaser cleverly resorted to using just the sounds of destruction to create a sense of anxiety, but the full trailer shows us a whole lot more.  Richard Armitage ("The Hobbit") and Sarah Wayne Callies ("The Walking Dead") star as a school official and storm researcher, respectively, who drive around in what essentially looks like a tank as the world goes to pieces around them.  "Final Destination 5" director Steven Quale (who shot second unit footage for "Avatar") helms the CG thriller, due out in theaters August 8.

Strap yourself into your seat and check out the trailer for "Into the Storm" below.
