I am one of the thousands–nay, hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions–of the talented
British actor and storyteller Richard Armitage (image courtesy of RANet, right) fans/admirers looking forward to seeing him in the adventure drama Into the Storm (ITS).
And today, we get a little foretaste of what the movie will be like when the ITS filmmakers and Warner Brothers reveal the movie’s first trailer at CinemaCon2014 (CC2014 logo image below) in Las Vegas, an industry convention for movie theatre owners and distributors.
First, the filmmakers gave us a brief teaser video yesterday:

Grati’s reaction to the Into the Storm teaser trailer:
Having been very near a few tornadoes over the the last 24 years–and my hubby and I also did amateur storm chasing in our early marriage years, with me driving and he taking pictures (images of a more recent 2006 hailstorm courtesy of Grati’s hubby, right)–it is the roaring sound that is indescribable about tornadoes. The sound is one part metal on a sharpening grindstone (1,000 times worse than nails on a chaulk board), one part staccato percussion rhythm as objects in the whirlwind hit against each other (and golf ball sized hail can shatter windows, dent cars, etc.), and one part deafening silence just before the next wave of winds hit you.
The Into the Storm movie teaser video sound effects truly evoked my memories of these past fierce storms. And I literally shivered. Tornadoes are not fun, they are scary–and their destruction devastates lives, sometimes even takinglives. And this film hopes to bring authenticity to their dramatic portrayal of ordinary people thrust into extraordinary life threatening situations–and how they find the courage to do what they need to do to survive–by using what the filmmakers refer to as “found footage” of actual storms.
I am looking forward to seeing the Into the Storm film this coming August 2014 (new official, left). At its core, this film will be a drama about humanity versus the full and terrifying force of nature. Being human, I think you can guess which side I am on.
