Californians have been waiting decades for the Big One, the massive earthquake expected to rock the San Andreas fault at a magnitude of 7.0 or greater on the Richter scale.

Dwayne Johnson leads Brad Peyton‘s San Andreas as Ray, a helicopter rescue pilot who’s in the air when the Big One arrives. He tries to track down his daughter Blake (Alexandra Daddario) along with his ex-wife Emma (Carla Gugino), as destruction rains down around them. See the new San Andreas images after the jump.
