Geostorm (2017, D: Devlin) -- S: Gerard Butler, Jim Sturgess, Ed Harris

After an unprecedented series of natural disasters threatened the planet, the world’s leaders came together to create an intricate network of satellites to control the global climate and keep everyone safe. But now, something has gone wrong—the system built to protect the Earth is attacking it, and it’s a race against the clock to uncover the real threat before a worldwide geostorm wipes out everything...and everyone along with it.

Dean Devlin (writer/producer, “Independence Day”) makes his feature film directorial debut with suspense thriller “Geostorm,” starring Gerard Butler (“Olympus Has Fallen,” “300”), Jim Sturgess (“Cloud Atlas”), Abbie Cornish (“Limitless”), Alexandra Maria Lara (“Rush”), Daniel Wu (“The Man with the Iron Fists,” “Warcraft: The Beginning”), with Oscar nominees Ed Harris (“The Hours,” “Apollo 13”) and Andy Garcia (“The Godfather: Part III”).

Butler stars as Jake, a scientist who, along with his brother, Max, played by Sturgess, is tasked with solving the satellite program’s malfunction. Cornish stars as Secret Service agent Sarah Wilson; Lara as Ute Fassbinder, the ISS astronaut who runs the space station; Wu as Cheng, the Hong Kong-based supervisor for the Dutch Boy Program; with Garcia as U.S. President Andrew Palma; and Harris as Secretary of State Leonard Dekkom. The film also stars Adepero Oduye (“The Big Short,” “12 Years a Slave”), Amr Waked (“Lucy,” “Syriana”), Robert Sheehan (“The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones,” “Season of the Witch”) and Eugenio Derbez (“Instructions Not Included”).

The film, written by Dean Devlin & Paul Guyot, is being produced by Skydance’s David Ellison, Devlin, and Skydance’s Dana Goldberg. Herbert W. Gains and Electric Entertainment’s Marc Roskin are the executive producers. Rachel Olschan of Electric Entertainment and Cliff Lanning co-produce.

1st teaser trailer was released today:

My wife and I are suckers for a good disaster movie so I'll keep an eye on this. I think they could have come up with a better title though. "Geostorm" smacks of a myriad of D movie losers I see on the shelves at Walmart on any given day.

That looks utter garbage. What the hell is Ed Harris doing in this? Only in it for the money i guess.

It feels like this is only being made to beat San Andreas 2 to the punch... and how in the hell can there even be a San Andreas 2??

I hate to admit that this looks like a big dumb fun film. If a family member wanted to see this it would give me cover to tag along.

Congrats to him on having anything made! I'll give it a shot based on that.

This movie is hopelessly complicated and the motivations of the bad guy are confusing and unclear. B-.

I imagine if they didn't pay him, he wouldn't have done it.

Saw the trailer for this before BladeRunner last night and my friend said "we've seen this movie before..."

I've learned my lesson on these: I watched a few of them over the years, and they're fun in the theater, but as soon as you leave you just feel hollow like you wasted your time.

Looks like the typical big budget disaster movie that may be lucky if it gets #1 the first weekend but will drop like a rock after that and will struggle to get near $100 domestic for its entire run.
