Space Disaster Film Drops Trailer


Today, the trailer for the Warner Bros. film “Geostorm” was released. The disaster flick, shot in New Orleans in late 2014 through early 2015, has long battled to get to the theaters. Plagued by years of reshoots and rescheduled release dates, the Dean Devlin directed film has been subject to rumors that the final product leaves a lot to be desired.  

 

Starring B-movie star Gerard Butler, “Geostorm” is about a man who must go to space to save the world from climate-controlling satellites, while his brother tries to save the U.S. president from an assassination conspiracy. Not that this first look makes that particularly clear.  

 

The trailer is a minute and a half of CGI-ed satellite technology floating in space, large scale scenes of worldwide environmental destruction, and lots of attractive people with furrowed brows. 

 

It’s practically an action movie cliché to set doom & gloom spectacles to a melancholic version of popular music — à la “Suicide Squad,” “Sucker Punch,” and “San Andreas” — and boy, does “Geostorm” deliver. The trailer makes use of “What A Wonderful World,” made famous by NOLA legend Louis Armstrong, setting the tune over shots of the world falling apart. 

 

The film also stars Abbie Cornish, Jim Sturgess, Ed Harris, and Andy Garcia. It is scheduled for release on October 20, 2017.
