A new disaster movie called “San Andreas”, from Warner Bros., is coming up on May this year, featuring “The Rock” Dwayne Johnson who plays an emergency rescue pilot who will do anything to save his daughter when a 9.0 magnitude earthquake hits California. After watching the trailer and going through the comments section on one of the leading entertainment website, I was surprised to see that many people couldn’t understand why the movie was called San Andreas. Some of them even expressed disappointment that the movie wasn’t about the popular video game GTA:San Andreas. So here, I take this opportunity to present you the notorious geological marvel – the San Andreas Fault that runs across California, and based upon which the movie is named.
