For those folks who felt that The Day After Tomorrow, San Andreas, and 2012 just didn't have enough widespread devastation for their tastes, then it looks like Geostorm might be that film you've been waiting for. Starring Gerard Butler, Abbie Cornish, and Alexandra Lara, the film centers around a world that has suffered at the hands of widespread natural disasters in the form of super-storms. The world's governments banded together to create a satellites and space station network which would bring the weather back under control. Now that system is malfunctioning and creating a fresh wave of storms.
Now a small team needs to race to uncover the source of the malfunctioning system before the storms combine into a worldwide "geostorm" that will result in forests of tornados, colossal tsunamis, massive house-sized hail. It seems from the trailer that most of these worst-case storms do begin to happen as we get a wide array of scenes of disaster and general mayhem.
Directed and co-written by Dean Devlin in his first feature film, he's no newcomer to the genre, having been a writer on Stargate, Independence Day, and Godzilla. The other writer is Paul Guyot, who has thus far been active in the television space, writing for Judging Amy, Leverage, and The Librarians.
