A family fights for survival as a planet-killing comet races to Earth. John Garrity (Gerard Butler), his estranged wife Allison (Morena Baccarin), and young son Nathan make a perilous journey to their only hope for sanctuary. Amid terrifying news accounts of cities around the world being leveled by the comet's fragments, the Garritys experience the best and worst in humanity while they battle the increasing panic and lawlessness surrounding them. As the countdown to global apocalypse approaches zero, their incredible trek culminates in a desperate and last-minute flight to a possible safe haven.Written by
The original Earth-grazing asteroid, prior to its breaking up, is named Clarke. This is undoubtedly after Arthur C. Clarke, who set up the plot for his 1973 novel Rendezvous With Rama by describing an asteroid strike in 2077 which destroys much of Northern Italy. See more »
The planet is about to be destroyed by an asteroid and we only have x hours before it strikes. I expected them to call Bruce Willis again to do some off-world digging but he must be under house arrest.
We're following Gerard Butler and his family as they try to get to a safe place in Greenland while the world around them turns into chaos. Other people seem to put more efforts into looting shops for toilet paper or holding end-of-the-world parties making their route a bit like the Road.
Gerard trying to save his family and driving his ridiculously oversized car through meteoroids: it's all forget-about-corona-for-two-hours mindless fun!
