Storm follows multiple subjects who are brought together in small-town Oklahoma on a day when the area earns its "Tornado Alley'' nickname. Callies plays a meteorologist gathering data from close-up tornado observation who has teamed up with a storm chaser (Matt Walsh) intent on getting the ultimate shot — with the help of a new tornado-proof armored vehicle named Titus.
"It's a bit of a contentious marriage of convenience," says Callies. "And we both end up massively over our heads."
Meanwhile, Richard Armitage (The Hobbit) is an assistant school principal who goes from overseeing a graduation ceremony to frantically trying to find his missing son in the midst of near-biblical weather.
Nearly two decades after 1996's Twister whipped through the box office, director Steven Quale believes the subject matter is even more timely due to increased storm frequency, much of it now captured and posted on YouTube.

"In the past five years the activity has been insane. And the footage really shows the raw power that nature has," says Quale. "With filmmaking we can do justice to show how beautiful, deadly and spectacular these tornadoes can be. My goal was to make it as real as possible. We do an impressive job."
The film is to tornadoes what Jurassic Park is to dinosaurs — a showcase for a wide variety of deadly stars. There is a giant wedge tornado, which can be two miles long and rips up anything in its path, plus smaller and faster tornadoes moving unpredictably, and even fire tornadoes.
Quale says the labor behind the computer-generated effects paid off when he proudly showed the film to tech-oriented director James Cameron. "He called them 'flawless,' " says Quale. Next up, unleashing the storm power onto cineplex movie screens.
"People are going to be blown away," Quale vows, adding, "What Gravity did to space, this movie will do to natural phenomena and weather."

While the tornadoes are tech magic, Callies says the 100 mph wind fans used on the Detroit set gave an all-too-realistic sense of being in their midst.
"The first time they turned on the fan it blew me off my mark 25 feet," says Callies. "The fan pulls the air out of your lungs so you're kind of gasping. Of course they are throwing leaves into it. When that hits your face at 100 mph it feels like being backhanded."
Still, she concedes that it's slightly less creepy than being grabbed by zombies.
"They are both terrifying prospects, but at least tornadoes don't have rotting flesh coming off them," says Callies. "Tornadoes are not after you specifically. But they will flatten whatever is in their path. It's nothing personal.
Even the weather department at USA Today daily newspaper is using Into The Storm for coverage. Their tweet...
