Hear Scorpions' 'Rock You Like a Hurricane' in New 'Hurricane Heist' Trailer

If you’ve made a movie called The Hurricane Heist, what other classic rock song would you want to use for the trailer than Scorpions’ “Rock You Like a Hurricane”?

After all, Neil Young’s “Like a Hurricane” is a love song, and Bob Dylan’s “Hurricane” is about something entirely different. So the filmmakers went with the German hard-rock kings. You can see the new trailer above.

The film’s synopsis, reprinted by ScreenCrush, is as follows: “Under the threat of a hurricane, opportunistic criminals infiltrate a U.S. Mint facility to steal $ 600 million for the ultimate heist. When the hurricane blows up into a lethal CATEGORY 5 storm and their well-made plans go awry, they find themselves needing a vault code known only by one Treasury Agent (Maggie Grace), a need that turns murderous. But the Treasury agent has picked up an unlikely ally, a meteorologist (Toby Kebbell) terrified of hurricanes but determined to save his estranged brother kidnapped by the thieves. He uses his knowledge of the storm as a weapon to win in this non-stop action thriller ride charged with adrenaline throughout.”

So basically, it’s kind of like Twister meets Ocean’s Eleven … or something like that? Directed by Rob Cohen (xXx, The Fast and the Furious), The Hurricane Heist will open on March 9.

Released on 1984’s Love at First Sting, “Rock You Like a Hurricane” was Scorpions’ breakthrough hit. It reached No. 25 on the Billboard Hot 100 and is the second-highest charting single for the band, right behind 1991’s “Wind of Change,” which peaked at No. 4.
