Skydance Media to Stay at Paramount in Multi-Year Deal (Exclusive)

7 August 2017 5:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The new pact will keep Skydance at the studio for four more years. Together the companies will produce new installments in the Mission: Impossible, Top Gun, and World War Z franchises, as well oversee a re-launch of the Terminator series that is rumored to involve James Cameron, the director of the first two films.

Roman Waugh is set to direct the sequel to Olympus Has Fallen and London Has Fallen. Waugh, who has helmed the likes of Snitch and Felon in the past, will direct Gerard Butler in Angel Has Fallen, which will also see Morgan Freeman return as Speaker Trumbull.

Creighton Rothenberger and Katrin Benedikt are writing the script for the film, which will see Butler’s Secret Service agent Mike Banning find himself becoming the target of a terrorist attack mid-flight on Air Force One.

There are no timescales as to when we may expect to see the film in cinemas, but we’re guessing we’re now look at at least a late 2018/ early 2019 debut.

Second trailer for disaster epic ‘Geostorm’

8 July 2017 9:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Warner Bros. have released a new trailer for their disaster flick Geostorm, which stars Gerard Butler, Katheryn Winnick, Jim Sturgess, Abbie Cornish, Andy Garcia and Ed Harris. Directed by Dean Devlin, the film sees the world’s weather go haywire after the satellites controlling the weather are hacked, wreaking havoc across the planet. Looks like a combination of every Roland Emmerich disaster film rolled into one outrageous package if you ask me… 2012, The Day After Tomorrow, even Independence Day (given that its a force “outside” Earth causing the problems).

When catastrophic climate change endangers Earth’s very survival, world governments unite to create a global network of satellites armed with technologies designed to stave off natural disasters. After successfully protecting the planet for years, something goes wrong. Two estranged brothers must repair the program’s malfunction before a worldwide Geostorm engulfs the planet.

Geostorm will be released on October 20th. »

7 July 2017 12:45 PM, PDT | | See recent QuietEarth news »

Skydance have released a new apocalyptic trailer from the upcoming Geostorm with Gerard Butler.

Synopsis as follows:

When catastrophic climate change endangers Earth's very survival, world governments unite and create the Dutch Boy Program: a world wide net of satellites, surrounding the planet, that are armed with geoengineering technologies designed to stave off the natural disasters.

After successfully protecting the planet for two years, something is starting to go wrong. Two estranged brothers are tasked with solving [Continued ...] »

New Geostorm Trailer Promises Destruction On An Epic Scale

6 July 2017 5:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Gerard Butler has done it all – when it comes to movies, that is. He’s fought against an army of Persians in 300, broken our hearts in P.S. I Love You, and saved the President of the United States not once, but twice, across Olympus Has Fallen and London Has Fallen. With Geostorm though, the Scottish actor is going up against what’s perhaps his greatest enemy yet: Mother Nature.

Skydance has peeled back the curtain once again to deliver another jaw-dropping trailer for the film, which triggers a storm of biblical proportions. Caught up in the midst of that global catastrophe is Butler’s astronaut, who’s sent to space on a mission to course-correct humanity’s climate-controlling satellites. But those same instruments designed to mitigate natural disasters soon become mankind’s worst enemy, and while suspended in outer space, Butler’s lead character uncovers a plot to assassinate the Potus – and no, »

Thoughts I Had... The "Geostorm" Trailer

6 July 2017 5:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Chris here. It's been a long time since we got a good old fashioned disaster flick, right? Luckily Geostorm is here to fill the silly void this fall.

The film stars Gerard Butler (as if you had to ask) in a world where satellites help ward off the perils of global warming. When the system gets hacked (or something, science is hard), Butler and crew is sent into space to investigate while Jim Sturgess is our hero on the ground. From the looks of the first trailer, there is a whole lot going on, from explosions to tornado armies to an Andy Garcia president. Naturally, I have some thoughts: »
