Bill and Jo Harding, advanced storm chasers on the brink of divorce, must join together to create an advanced weather alert system by putting themselves in the cross-hairs of extremely violent tornadoes.
Tom Hanks was the original choice for the role of Bill Harding. Hanks read lines with the cast and even chose the character's wardrobe, which stayed in the final film, before dropping out. Kurt Russell and Michael Keaton were other possible considerations. Bill Paxton was chosen due to his "southern everyman charm" on a recommendation from director James Cameron.
Where's my truck...?
Jo: There it is.

At the beginning of the film, the Warner Bros. logo (USA prints) and the Universal Pictures logo (International prints) are in appears in the smoking of worse clouds.
The USA release begins with a stormy Warner Bros. logo and ends with the Amblin logo and Warner Bros. Distribution logo, while the international release begins with a stormy Universal logo and ends simply with the Amblin logo, because, of course, Universal never has a closing logo.
