Greenland (2020, D: Waugh) S: Gerard Butler, Morena Baccarin, Scott Glenn

EXCLUSIVE: Here’s a sexy project making its way into the market to liven up a Sunday. Avengers and Captain America franchise star Chris Evans has been set to lead disaster thriller Greenland, the latest from District 9 helmer Neill Blomkamp. Fast-emerging outfit Anton is producing alongside Thunder Road Pictures’ Basil Iwanyk. Anton is co-financing with Riverstone Pictures. STXinternational is handling overseas distribution, presenting the project to buyers here, and will directly distribute in the UK and Ireland. CAA Media Finance arranged the financing and will rep domestic rights alongside Endeavor Content.

Details on Greenland’s plot are being kept close to the vest. It’s the story of a family’s fight for survival in the face of a cataclysmic natural disaster. Principal photography is set for the last quarter of 2018.

Anton’s Sébastien Raybaud and Harold van Lier are executive producing with Riverstone’s Nik Bower and Deepak Nayar. Thunder Road developed the picture with Riverstone and UK financier Ingenious Media.

“When we read Greenland, we knew it was exactly the sort of film we wanted to make as we build the Anton brand — smart, character driven genre with action and heart. We are very excited to work alongside our friends at STX with such exceptional talent as Neill Blomkamp, Chris Evans and Basil Iwanyk,” says Raybaud, CEO of Anton.

David Kosse, President of STXinternational, adds, “Greenland is the kind of highly commercial genre fare that sees Neill Blomkamp doing what he does best: delivering a smart, fresh, high concept narrative in a world we can easily recognize. We were immediately attracted to this talent-driven, wide release, theatrical title that is so distinctive of the STX brand. Working alongside Neill, Thunder Road, Riverstone and Anton to bring this to the marketplace is a tremendous opportunity.”

Evans is currently on screens in Disney/Marvel juggernaut Avengers: Infinity War which has grossed over $1.4B worldwide and counting. Of late, he’s also been expanding his creative range, making his directorial debut with drama Before We Go and upcoming has Gideon Raff’s The Red Sea Diving Resort, which STXinternational is also repping. He’s also currently on Broadway with a critically lauded turn in Lobby Hero.

Blomkamp shot to international acclaim as the co-writer and director of the groundbreaking sci-fi pic District 9, for which he was nominated for a Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar. His following films, Elysium starring Matt Damon and Chappie starring Hugh Jackman and Dev Patel, grossed over $388M combined.

Greenland is a hot project for the STXinternational slate which has blossomed since the division launched under Kosse in 2016. Upcoming releases include Baltasar Kormakur’s Adrift starring Shailene Woodley and Sam Claflin (also co-financed by Ingenious) in June; and Mile 22 from director Peter Berg and starring Mark Wahlberg, and The Happytime Murders starring Melissa McCarthy, both in August.

Kosse says, “The recent reaction at CinemaCon to our current slate was a wonderful validation of the choices we make when investing in our films and filmmakers. There are only a handful of truly great films available for the international marketplace and STX is consistently managing to be a destination company for those films — both our own in-house productions and titles we represent. We came away from Cannes last year handling one of the most valuable titles in All the Money In The World and this year is looking equally rewarding.”

Anton has backed hits like the Paddington franchise and Shaun The Sheep, and is expanding rapidly into high-end TV dramas through its partnership with BBC Studio backing shows such as McMafia. It is also lead financing and selling Fireheart, the next animated project from the producers of Ballerina and Untouchables.

Evans is repped by CAA, 3 Arts Entertainment, Narrative PR and attorney Jason Sloane. Blomkamp is repped by WME and Gendler & Kelly.

Saw a trailer for this tonight. It doesn’t seem to be online yet.

Since it was announced, it went through director and cast change. The team of Ric Roman Waugh and Gerard Butler are now behind it.

You guys hear that...? That’s the sound of Why So Blu?’s pants tightening.

Most of the films Waugh has made barely rise above direct-to-video quality but I still have more faith in him than I do Blomkamp anymore.

Butler is extremely hit or miss. I would have preferred Evans.

Either way, I’ll probably check this out assuming the reviews aren’t abysmal.

Looks fun! Looks like it might also have a bigger budget than Angel Has Fallen. Waugh directed that one, too.

Yeah looks like it could be a fun watch. Let's see if it actually opens in 2020 though.

This one is screaming for Netflix...but this could actually be good compared to most of their movie crap.

Looks like stupid city. I love it. Agree that Evans would have been preferable, though

New trailer




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 Garrity’s 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. Here’s your first look at the trailer for #GreenlandMovie, starring Gerard Butler. Coming to theaters soon.

Surprised Roland Emmerich didn’t direct. Is this one of those At Home stream things?

Its a theatrical release. But the release date is not firm yet. It could change due to the current uncertainty with the virus. STX is probably wait and see.

Headed to PVOD soon (Skipping theaters), then HBO Max early next year for the US and Amazon Prime for Canada.

The President must be so jealous of HBO Max. They were able to buy Greenland.

It's already made and is making money.

From the article in the link:

The move by ErosSTX is a means to maximize its revenue on Greenland during the pandemic. The $35M production has already made $45M in revenue, according to the studio, and opened No. 1 in 22 (pandemic-blighted) markets for overseas box office of around $20M to date. Greenland will continue to roll-out theatrically in those overseas territories which have returned during the pandemic.

Yeah I wanted to see this in the theatre too. But, I guess STX was comfortable taking the big pay day from HBO since they've made most of their money back from overseas.

I wouldn't be surprised to see the Kevin Costner/Diane Lane drama "Let Him Go" (due Nov. 6) get picked up next due to the current success of "Yellowstone".

STX is a really small studio and they just made all their money back on this movie, plus some profit. So they're good.

The one who gets screwed is the theatres since this was supposedly going to get rescheduled to later this year. This is one less movie they have to show now. AMC was showing trailers for this until STX pulled it from the schedule.

Yeah, this was one of the last trailers I saw in a theater before the shutdown. Wonder if it will be any good... seemed a little intense.

This was a good movie. Much better than Angel Has Fallen. I was on the edge of my seat for most of the film.

I don't know why they're waiting until Dec 18th. It's already been released on Amazon Prime in Europe.

I'd recommend avoiding the trailers. They show stuff from the entire movie, including the last few minutes.
