The weather literally attacks in destructive trailer for Geostorm

The weather literally attacks in destructive trailer for Geostorm”

Unfortunately, one of the satellites malfunctions over Afghanistan, converting the desert climate into an icy landscape, freezing several Afghani to death. Dean Devlin, co-written, produced, and director of the movie wrote Geostorm which centers on a global satellite system designed and played by Gerard Butler, who pledges before a Congressional hearing, 'we can control our weather.' The film also stars Jim Sturgess, Abbie Cornish, Andy Garcia and Ed Harris.

But is the satellite really malfunctioning? It looks decidedly brainless, but there just might be a lot of big dumb fun on offer.

A screengrab from "Geostorm" that stars Gerard Butler, Abbie Cornish and Andy Garcia among others. No, that's a thing that happened in The Avengers.

In case you'd forgotten the premise already, the new trailer even starts with the words "Extreme Weather Alert" blaring right in your face. Though the first Independence Day doesn't have anything to do with Geostorm, but watch the trailer and go figure out! Devlin's Electric Entertainment is producing the movie with Skydance Productions. The CG extravaganza hits the screens worldwide including in IMAX on October 20th 2017.

I caught some of Independence Day on cable during the Fourth of July, and was struck by how Hollywood doesn't make many movies like that anymore.

Geostorm, also starring Jim Sturgess, Abbie Cornish, Alexandra Maria Lara, Daniel Wu, Zazie Beets, Ed Harris, and Andy Garcia, will arrive in Australia on October 19 and opens in the USA on October 20.
