Tornado Thursday: “Into the Storm” Movie Trailer Debuts Today! March 27, 2014 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #536)

I am one of the thousands–nay, hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions–of the talented IntotheStorm-RichardArmitage-asGaryMorris-10Sept2012_retrievedMar2614ranet-sized
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 BrothersCinemaCon_2014_WelcomeSlide_Mar2614_CC2014-crop-sized 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:

“Into the Storm – New Trailer 3/27” a video by Warner Bros. Pictures

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 Hailstorm moving Off_April16-2006GratisHubby-crop-sizedalso 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 Measured Hail from April16-2006Storm_Mar2614GratisHubby-sizedobjects 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.

Into-the-Storm-official-movie-poster_Mar2614WarnerBros-sizedI 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.



And another wide angle poster view from the Into the Storm movie page:

About Gratiana Lovelace

Gratiana Lovelace is my nom de plume for my creative writing and blogging. I write romantic stories in different sub genres. The stories just tumble out of me. My resurgence in creative writing occurred when I viewed the BBC miniseries of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North & South in February 2010. The exquisitely talented British actor portraying the male lead John Thornton in North & South--Richard Crispin Armitage--became my unofficial muse. I have written over 50 script stories about love--some are fan fiction, but most are original stories--that I am just beginning to share with others on private writer sites, and here on my blog. And as you know, my blog here is also relatively new--since August 2011. But, I'm having fun and I hope you enjoy reading my blog essays and my stories. Cheers! Grati ;-> upd 12/18/11

  1. March 27, 2014–RAOnscreenDelight retweeted a new Warner Bros. image from the film

  2. March 27, 2014–Thanks for liking this post!

  6. March 27, 2014–From The Hollywood Reporter, Quotes by Richard Armitage at CinemaCon2014 about Into the Storm:

    “Village Roadshow and Warner Bros.’ Into the Storm stars Richard Armitage and Sarah Wayne Callies also took the stage to present a trailer for their film, along with director Steven Quale.

    “When I made this movie, I said to myself, ‘I need to create the realism of the actual story, and not make a “Hollywood movie,” ‘ ” he said.

    “The power of nature is both terrifying and awe-inspiring, but what is more inspiring than that is the power of human nature,” Armitage said.”



  7. March 27, 2014–After I watched the ITS trailer the first time on Youtube, the viewer stats for the video said “1”. My hubby says I should have screen shot it. *face palm*


  8. March 28, 2014–Zan of the “Well, there you go” blog shared her thoughts about the Into the Storm trailer shown at CinemaCon2014, and some pictures:


  9. March 28, 2014–Servetus shared a reblog and link of a German fan’s take on the Into the Storm trailer and such:


  10. March 28, 2014–Perry found a Coming Soon review of the Into the Storm Trailer and the WB presentation at CinemaCon 2014 alluding to more footage being shown:

    Comments about the content of the trailer and what we hope to see in future trailers ensued.

    And here was my/Grati’s comment that I posted there:
    The trailer clearly showed interaction between Armitage’s and Callies’ characters, and my story plot spinning mind brings up possibilities–with regard to Gary as an educational professional and Callie’s character as the weather professional (giggles, that’s a meteorologist). Though each of their days might have started out with a graduation ceremony administrative duty and a routine storm chasing/monitoring plan, respectively, their teaming up might turn into them joining forces to save lives, and maybe more. *wink*


  11. March 28, 2014–Charlotte enthuses about the Into the Storm Trailer and the potential for the movie to be a bit hit. Then she shares a memory of a real tornado experience:


    • I couldn’t figure out how to comment there–login wise. So here is what I would have commented:

      Great essay! And as someone who also lives in a tornado alley–I donned a metal bike helmet for protection last Fall when the latest storms swept through our area and caused damage–we treat these storms with great respect.

      And yes, we are drilled for safety evacuations or in place cover from kindergarten through 12th grade. Preparedness is the key–and luck and common sense. Films like Into the Storm remind us that we have to be ever vigilant about safety and preparedness.


  12. March 29, 2014–RANet shared a link that Marlise Boland of The Anglophile Channel shared with her wrap-up report from Cinemacon2014.

    She talks about running into Richard Armitage there and his reaction to fan reaction to his Anglophile Channel interview.

    And even more importantly, she has video and audio of Richard Armitage talking at the Into the Storm presentation. Wow!


  13. March 29, 2014–As retweeted by Todd Garner, here is a link for a French “Into the Storm” trailer. And the film title on this video seems to be an amalgam of the 1st & 2nd titles: Black Storm.
