Summer Movie Highlight - San Andreas
The San Andreas Fault is a continental transform fault that extends roughly 810 miles through California. It forms the tectonic boundary between the Pacific Plate and the North American Plate, and its motion is right-lateral strike-slip (horizontal). The fault divides into three segments, each with different characteristics and a different degree of earthquake risk, the most significant being the southern segment, which passes within about 35 miles of Los Angeles...

The movie is directed by Brad Peyton who directed Johnson in Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, which I have to say, pulled me in last Saturday when I was supposed to be getting a lot of chores done, keeping the TV on in the background for company; then wound up sitting down to watch the ridiculous fantasy/adventure sequel. Anyway, it was actually the producer of both Journey 2 and San Andrea, Beau Flynn, a longtime fan of classic disaster films, who came up with the concept for this CGI spectacular. He was eager to update the genre with today’s 3D capabilities and cutting-edge technology to create photorealistic images. Beyond that, he concedes, “The reason this movie resonates so much with me is that within three weeks of my moving to Los Angeles, the Northridge 3 earthquake hit. I had never even felt a tremor before, and to experience a major earthquake was terrifying, powerful. It makes you feel very small and humble. I was always fascinated by the San Andreas Fault, specifically, even though I grew up in Miami, 3000 miles away. It’s just something I think people are aware of, consciously or not. It’s in the zeitgeist.”
