Geostorm, next disaster film. When our satellites falling on us all
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.
This is the plot of a new disaster movie that seems another production of the king of this genre, Roland Emmerich, but not, it is not. This one is a story written by Dean Devlin, who is going to debut as director with this production. In the past, he has been linked as coproducer of popular films like “Independence Day”, “Godzilla” and “Stargate”.
So, Devlin knows this subgenre and the science fiction itself really well, and the first trailer leaves us with good expectations. On this first look we can watch the inferno unleashed on Earth, while we are listening, ironically, a new version of the great classic song by Louis Armstrong “What a Wonderful World”.
Geostorm is the title of this new production that is starrring Gerard Butler, Jim Sturgess (Cloud Atlas), Abbie Cornish (Limitless), Ed Harris and Andy Garcia, whom we watched in another sci-fi spacial film, “Passengers”, recently by playing Admiral Norris.
The main character is played Gerard Butler, Jake, is a scientist who together to his brother, Max (Sturgess), receive the task to go into space and fix the satellite program. Andy Garcia plays US president, Andrew Palma, while veteran actor Ed Harris plays as Secretary of State Leonard Dekkom. On this production also appears the Mexican actor Eugenio Derbez.
Geostorm was filmed two years ago and some scenes were re-shot again last December. Although this could be a bad signal, trailer looks well, we insist on. Locations included real NASA facility in Orlando and New Orleans. Behind this movie is also the producer Jerry Bruckheimer.
Enjoy this first trailer of Geostorm while we can see on teathers next October 20th.
