Disastrous Geostorm Opening Weekend Won't Even Cover Cost of Reshoots

21 October 2017 12:32 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Dean Devlin's Geostorm is on track for a disastrous opening weekend that won't even cover the cost of the reshoots. "Everyone was warned, but no one listened," says the teenage narrator of Geostorm, a natural-disaster spectacle directed and co-written by Devlin. According to the narrator, by 2019 there had been so many hurricanes, tornadoes, and heat waves that the problem of climate change could no longer be ignored. The solution? A giant weather-controlling framework that encases the Earth like a see-through geodesic dome, which is not the worst movie idea around at this current time, but probably the worst timing for a release.

The movie is pretty much advertised as an excuse to blow things up like a Michael Bay movie, almost like they just gave up about half way through making the movie and decided to ditch the script and focus on the disasters and Gerard Butler trying to hack a computer. »

‘Geostorm’ Review: Dir. Dean Devlin (2017)

20 October 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Geostorm review: Independence Day and Stargate producer Dean Devlin gets his hands on the directorial reigns for this entertaining big-budget effort that carries an urgent message with it.

Geostorm review by Paul Heath.

Geostorm review

What the world probably doesn’t need right now is a disaster movie, but a disaster movie is just what we’ve been handed with this big-budget event movie, strangely positioned for release well outside the summer window where you would almost certainly expect it to end up. However, Geostorm is not the film you expect it to be at all.

Scripted by Dean Devlin and Paul Guyot, who have found success recently on the TV series The Librarians, Geostorm is every bit the epic, schmaltzy, city-destroying popcorn movie you expect it to be, but it has an unexpected message running through its core.

The film opens a couple of years from now where we have absolutely destroyed our planet. »

Jim Sturgess interview: The British actor talks up his role in this weekend’s Geostorm

The Hollywood News talks to one of the stars of new action-adventure film Geostorm. You can check out our exclusive Jim Sturgess interview below.

In cinemas this weekend is Independence Day and Stargate producer Dean Devlin‘s massive disaster epic Geostorm, a frenetic action-adventure movie set in a world where we are able to control the weather. This is all down to Gerard Butler’s Jake Lawson, who has invented a device called the ‘Dutchboy’, a network of satellites that can control the climate all around the world.

Jake, ousted by his own company shortly after ‘Dutchboy’ went live, is called upon by his brother, Max (Jim Sturgess), who is now a top-notch suit at the White House after the device starts to fail. Jake must travel into orbit to the »

The Best TV Shows Based on Movies, Ranked

1 August 2017 9:28 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

In the age of branding and franchises, every existing story has added value. But not every film is fit for TV.

The challenge of adapting movies to a new medium is a tricky one with no clear-cut way to do it. Many new series credit “Fargo” as their benchmark, citing its tone and setting as inspiration for creating a new world around the best parts of what came before. That’s all well and good, but there are as many failed attempts to replicate Noah Hawley’s strategy as successes.

Similarly, some carbon copies — using the same characters and plot points as the preceding movie — are just as good, if not better than their cinematic predecessors. Because any way can work, many various attempts have been made. There’s no right way to do it, but there are a lot of wrong ways; as evidenced by the growing pile of canceled shows based on movies. »

Geostorm Trailer #2 Takes Climate Change to the Extreme

6 July 2017 10:41 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warner Bros. has released the second trailer for Geostorm, showcasing the devastating effects of a very extreme version of "climate change." While this fictional tale surely won't sway the naysayers who think climate change is a hoax, with these massive action set pieces that show various forms of weather systems getting extremely out of control, it certainly could provide some big-budget escapism from the current political climate. This trailer hints that Geostorm may in fact be the most action-packed movie to hit theaters all year, and it could also be a dark horse box office blockbuster, starring Gerard Butler.

The story is set in the aftermath of an unprecedented series of natural disasters that threatened the planet in ways never been seen before, which lead the world's leaders to come together to create an intricate network of satellites to control the global climate and keep everyone safe. The trailer, from Warner Bros. YouTube, »

New ‘Geostorm’ Trailer Heralds the End of the World

6 July 2017 9:08 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Skydance Productions and Warner Bros. Pictures have unveiled a new trailer for the upcoming disaster film Geostorm, and it’s certainly a big-budget disaster movie. The film marks the feature directorial debut of Independence Day and Stargate producer Dean Devlin and takes place in a world where our weather has become so out of control that it’s now controlled by satellites in outer space. But when they start malfunctioning and creating “a man-made storm of epic proportions”, only one man can save the world: Gerard Butler. This Geostorm trailer won me over.  This movie looks so delightfully … »

The Chinese-based Bona Film Group finalized the biggest deal to come out of the Cannes Film Festival, shelling out $80 million for a new World War II thriller Midway, which has Roland Emmerich set to direct. Bona Film Group has acquired worldwide film distribution rights for every market except the U.S., with CAA brokering the deal and representing the U.S. rights. It isn't clear if there is a domestic distributor being lined up quite yet, but this project is said to be Roland Emmerich's next film.

Deadline reports that Wes Tooke (Colony) wrote the script, with Bona Film Group's Yu Dong producing alongside Mark Gordon for The Mark Gordon Company, Matt Jackson and Harald Kloser. The film is an epic telling of the Battle of Midway, a turning point in the Pacific theater of World War II. The story follows the real soldiers and aviators who pulled »

Sylvester Stallone Calls Superheroes This Generation's Mythology

21 April 2017 3:29 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Most people know Sylvester Stallone from his legendary Rambo and Rocky roles, but it's easy to forget that between 1980 and 1995 he starred in some of the most beloved (and completely bananas) action and sci-fi movies of that era. Nighthawks, Cobra, Lock Up, Cliffhanger, Demolition Man, Judge Dredd, Assassins, and Daylight -- sure, nobody's saying these films belong anywhere near the AFI's top 100, but this stretch of work was Stallone at the top of his game. I strongly recommend Nighthawks (co-starring Billy Dee Williams), it's seriously one of the great unsung action films of the early 80s.

Of course, we all know about Kurt Russell's epic run of action and sci-fi during this same period (starting with Escape from New York and ending with Stargate). It's arguable who's the better actor, but you have to give Stallone the edge for cultural impact during the 80s and early 90s.

Kurt Russell's Entire Life Has Been Leading Up to 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2'

24 March 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

"And who the hell are you?" Peter Quill asks the bearded stranger descending from the spaceship.

"I'm your dad, Peter."

In the final seconds of the latest Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer, a major piece of the puzzle regarding Quill's true parentage was put into place: Kurt Russell plays Star-Lord's long-lost father, Ego the Living Planet, a character teased in the first movie as "something very ancient we've never seen here before." Any other particulars about Ego, though, are rumor, gossip, or well-intentioned but misguided excitement.

"I was doing publicity for Hateful Eight and suddenly, people started saying, 'Is it true? Are you going to play Peter Quill’s father?'" Russell recalls during a visit to Guardians' Atlanta, Georgia, set last year. "I'm like, 'I don’t know what you’re talking about.' I just wasn’t aware of it. And for the first time, this was a character, obviously, that people »
