Anytime you allow technology to interfere with nature shit is bound to get a bit dicey. Geostorm, the new film from the writer/producer of Independence Day Dean Davlin, dives into that scenario as a satalite meant to keep the world safe from the horrors of a natural disaster begins to malfunction, attacking it at full force.
Sound ridiculous? We agree.
Based on a quick glance at the film’s official teaser Geostorm appears to be a heavy helping of The Day After Tomorrow with a small side of Deep Impact. Relying greatly on its special effects, viewers are sure to be treated to an impressive and adrenaline filled visual spectacle. Whether there is any depth behind the CGI is yet to be seen. It is probably same to assume that somewhere Roland Emmerich is fidgiting in his seat with anticipation.
Starring Gerard Butler, Jim Sturgess, Abbie Cornish, Ed Harris and Andy Garcia, Geostorm blows into theaters on October 20th and is expected to include 3D and IMAX showings.
