First trailer and one sheet for Into The Storm spins online

Warner Bros have just released their first trailer and one sheet for Steven Quale's (Final Destination 5) Into The Storm.

Eschewing the characters for this first look, the teaser loads up on CG tornado chaos, featuring all manner of people, vehicles and buildings being torn apart by the howling fury of Mother Nature's most powerful gusts. It's clear that Quale intends to ramp this one up from simply slightly dangerous tornadoes, to full-on power funnels capable of tossing planes around with abandon.

He recently told USA Today that the film, which features footage shot by various characters, is rooted in tempestuous reality. "In the past five years the activity has been insane. And the footage really shows the raw power that nature has. With filmmaking we can do justice to show how beautiful, deadly and spectacular these tornadoes can be. My goal was to make it as real as possible. We do an impressive job."

And his effects team's efforts have already got the thumbs up from James Cameron (Avatar). "He called them 'flawless,'" says Quale. "What Gravity did to space, this movie will do to natural phenomena and weather."

As for the story, it finds the small Oklahoma town of Silverton ravaged by an unprecedented onslaught of cataclysmic tornadoes. The entire population is at the mercy of the erratic and deadly cyclones, even as storm trackers predict the worst is yet to come.

Most people seek shelter, while others run towards the vortex, testing how far a storm chaser will go for that once in a lifetime shot. In the middle of it all, school vice-principal Gary Morris (Richard Armitage) must look for his missing son and protect others as the weather's fury lays waste around him.

With Sarah Wayne Callies (The Walking Dead), Jeremy Sumpter (Soul Surfer), Matt Walsh (Ted), Nathan Kress (iCarly), Kyle Davis (Friday The 13th) and Arlen Escarpeta (Final Destination 5) also in the cast, Into The Storm will be upon us on 22 August.
