The Warner Bros. film - previously titled "Black Sky" - follows a group of storm chasers trying to document an unprecedented onslaught of tornadoes that ravage a small town. While some residents seek shelter, the storm chasers prove just how far they are willing to go to capture a once-in-a-lifetime shot.
From New Line Cinema, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures, comes the tornado disaster film Into the Storm. Steven Quale (Final Destination 5) directs the film, which is produced by Todd Garner (Zookeeper, Knight and Day).
In the span of a single day, the town of Silverton is ravaged by an unprecedented onslaught of tornadoes. 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 people seek shelter, while 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, Into the Storm throws you directly into the eye of the storm to experience Mother Nature at her most extreme.
Quale is directing the film from a screenplay by John Swetnam. The executive producers are Richard Brener, Walter Hamada, Dave Neustadter, Mark McNair, Jeremy Stein, and Bruce Berman.

Quale’s behind-the-scenes creative team consists of several members of his Final Destination 5 roster, including director of photography Brian Pearson, production designer David Sandefur, editor Eric Sears, and composer Brian Tyler, as well as costume designer Kimberly Adams (associate costume designer for the Chronicles of Narnia films).
New Line Cinema production, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures, a Broken Road production, Into the Storm. The film will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, and in select territories by Village Roadshow Pictures.
Brian's music will be featuring violin solos performed by Paul S. Henning - he currently sits as concertmaster of the Golden State Pops Orchestra and has also played violin for Barbra Streisand and Andrea Bocelli.
The teaser looks awful. It looks like this year's "2012." I eagerly await the "Honest Trailers" youtube review...
"INTO THE STORM.... from the director of Final Destination 5 and the writer of Step Up: All In, comes a film starring gratuitous CGI, explosions, buildings collapsing, buildings being destroyed, people running, people screaming, people running and screaming from buildings being destroyed and collapsing, and sound effects from Transformers, The Day After Tomorrow, and Twister."
The trailer showed me that there will be little to no plot and told me nothing about the character(s). I mean it's great if you're looking for a CGI special effects extravaganza, but come on... it looks absolutely no better than "2012."
