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. »

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 ...] »

Thanks to his decorated career behind the lens, Roland Emmerich is often credited as Hollywood’s master of cinematic destruction. From 2012 to Independence Day to The Day After Tomorrow, moviegoers have witnessed Emmerich tear Earth’s monuments asunder (often twice!), but August heralds a new pretender to the throne of ridiculously over-the-top spectacle: Sharknado 5: Global Swarming.
Of course, whereas Roland Emmerich’s movies tend to be more serious in tone (“the neutrinos are mutating!”), Syfy’s cult Sharknado franchise embraces its zany, irreverent nature wholeheartedly, and we’re pleased to report that that satirical streak will continue with the launch of Global Swarming on August 6th.
In order to ramp up excitement, the network has today unleashed the bonkers first teaser trailer, which targets many of the world’s most famous monuments. Returning for another helping of ‘nado action are Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) and his bionic wife, April »

Cannes Film Festival yesterday saw another unveiling. Independence Day director, Roland Emmerich, has officially been confirmed to take the helm of the World War II project, Midway, which he will also co-produce.
The Battle of Midway in the South Pacific was a decisive naval battle in June 1942, six months after Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor. The U.S. Navy defeated an attacking fleet of the Imperial Japanese Navy near Midway Atoll after U.S. codebreakers were able to pinpoint the time and place of the attack. The damage to the Japanese fleet was so extensive that it never recovered and military historians regard the battle as a turning point in the war.
This won’t be the first time The Battle of Midway has been covered on film, back in 1976, Universal’s epic “Midway,” starring Charlton Heston, Henry Fonda, James Coburn, Glenn Ford, Hal Holbrook, Toshiro Mifune, »

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Per Deadline, the new recruits now join Liam Neeson – Hollywood’s rejuvenated action icon if ever there was one – for Hans Petter Moland’s Rocky Mountains-set actioner, itself an English-language remake of Moland’s own Norwegian pic, In Order of Disappearance. Frank Baldwin is on board to hash out a screenplay with the Scandanivan filmmaker, while Michael Shamberg will produce on behalf of StudioCanal.
Details on how Forsythe and/or Rossum factor into the plot remain few and far between; so far, the only logline confirms Neeson as Nels an “upright snowplow driver in a glitzy ski town whose life is turned upside down when his son is murdered by the powerful local drug kingpin.

Mother nature, alongside man-made satellites, appears to be getting her revenge on a world that has been abused at the hands of humankind in a chillingly surreal teaser trailer for Geostorm, a natural disaster movie of epic proportions.
Think The Day after Tomorrow crossed with San Andreas and you’d be on the right windy track. In this teaser we witness a magnitude of electrical storms, tornadoes and huge tidal waves engulfing numerous cities across the world including India, Dubai and the Us, causing complete and utter devastation whilst our protagonists watch in complete horror.
2017 seems to be the year for directorial feature film debuts as writer and producer of Independence Day, Dean Devlin, takes the helm on this suspense thriller. Can Devlin do what so many who have come before him have failed to do and make this »

Let’s face it. Geostorm is certainly not the first nor is the last movie that amplifies some kind of potential threat to our planet. We’ve seen plenty of apocalyptic “the world is ending” kind of films before. With aliens we saw Independence Day and War of the Worlds. With asteroids we saw Armageddon and Deep Impact. With climate we saw The Day After Tomorrow. With earthquakes we saw San Andreas. With disease we saw Contagion. The list goes on. There will always be some movie about the earth ending in some way. Now we’re being introduced to Geostorm. Gerard Butler

If you ever watched The Day After Tomorrow, and felt that it could do with silly, over the top action beats and a more rugged hero, Geostorm could be the movie for you. With Independence Day and Stargate producer Dean Devlin making his directorial debut, the movie sees Gerard Butler tasked with saving the planet after a network of weather controlling satellites malfunction, threatening Earth with a massively destructive worldwide storm. The first trailer has come our way, putting the focus on the main reason anyone will see this: effects. And I gotta say, they’re pretty damn in impressive. The story may be on have the feeling of your typical Syfy movie, but a lot of fun is promised at the very least. Released: October 20th »

"In the future, the technology that controls the weather, controls the world." Warner Bros has debuted the first official teaser trailer for the disaster movie titled Geostorm, which follows in the footsteps of movies like 2012 and The Day After Tomorrow by presenting a scenario where the entire world is being destroyed by a massive destabilization of our climate. Gerard Butler stars as the hero who has to save the day entire world by going into space to try and fix the problem. The full cast includes Jim Sturgess, Abbie Cornish, Alexandra Maria Lara, Daniel Wu, with Oscar nominees Ed Harris and Andy Garcia. Thankfully this first teaser trailer doesn't hold back on shots of the destruction, but as always, I'm hoping there's an interesting story to follow here or this is going to be forgotten. The weather control concept seems so cheesy. Here's the first official trailer for Dean Devlin's Geostorm, »

Long-time Roland Emmerich collaborator Dean Devlin directs Geostorm, a big budget disaster movie with so much devastation it can only be described as "Emmerich-esque". Very reminiscent of The Day After Tomorrow, in which global warming turned the planet into a deep freeze, the bombastic Jerry Bruckheimer production stars Gerard Butler as a man-on-a-mission to space to determine what's gone so wrong with some newfangled weather satellites that the entire planet is being destroyed. I'm in! Synopsis: 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...
