If you thought Atomic Twister was a great title for a disaster movie (even though the film itself sucked), check this out: Metal Tornado. That’s right: Metal Tornado. And no, it’s not an 80′s heavy metal comedy, it’s an upcoming sci-fi disaster movie. Check out the synopsis and full poster after the jump.
Metal Tornado is co-written by Andrew Erin and Jason Bourque — we last met Jason in the post about Arctic Blast, remember? The movie is in pre-production, so no word about cast yet, but the distributor, Imagination Worldwide, have posted the synopsis on their site. Here’s part of it:
Samuel Planck is head of the HELIOS PROJECT—a high tech facility tasked with storing and converting solar rays into an endless supply of renewable energy. After years of research and millions of dollars, it is now time to test the system out. The scientists cheer loudly as initially things go according to plan. But when the facility is unable to control the massive amount of energy coming in, the cheers turn to screams. The charged particles begin swirling around themselves, creating a massive magnetic vortex that quickly becomes the first magnetic tornado on earth!
Planck and his team try to abort the procedure but it’s already too late–with a trillion watts of power to draw from, there is nowhere this monstrous force of nature can’t go. The mega swirling tornados are soon ripping steel from buildings, cars off the street, and planes from the sky as they pulverize everything they touch!
I don’t know about you, but I’m already in love with this one. I mean, it’s a Metal Tornado. What more could you ask for?
