New Line’s epic disaster movie San Andreas, starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, has stormed the UK box office with over £4.6m in its opening weekend.
“San Andreas delivers a thrilling cinema experience with spectacular state-of-the-art visual effects and another iconic action performance from Dwayne Johnson” said Warner Bros. Home UK Entertainment President Josh Berger; “We’re delighted by the terrific response we’re seeing from cinemagoers across the UK and Ireland”.
San Andreas is one of the biggest earthquake movies of all time, with block-busting effects and an A-list cast to boot. The film was predicted to do well, and looks to have impressed international audiences, with a combined $60 million overseas including the UK.
It also looks set to top the US charts this week with an impressive $53 million opening weekend stateside.
