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 directorial debut with Geostorm, from a script he co-wrote with Paul Guyot. Gerard Butler stars as Jake, a scientist who, along with his brother, Max (Jim Sturgess), is tasked with solving the satellite program’s malfunction. Abbie Cornish stars as Secret Service agent Sarah Wilson; Alexandra Maria Lara stars as Ute Fassbinder, the ISS astronaut who runs the space station; Daniel Wu as Cheng, the Hong Kong-based supervisor for the Dutch Boy Program; with Andy Garcia as U.S. President Andrew Palma; and Ed Harris as Secretary of State Leonard Dekkom. Adepero Oduye, Amr Waked, Robert Sheehan and Eugenio Derbez also star.
Geostorm opens October 20th.
