We’ve already seen most weather and natural disasters covered in one of Hollywood’s big disaster movies. So it was only a matter of time before someone made a disaster movie with ALL the disasters.
Warner Brothers has released a teaser trailer for Geostorm, which is the feature directorial debut of Independence Day writer and producer Dean Devlin. The movie takes place in a time when natural disasters have gotten out of hand, causing the world’s leaders to create a technology that can control the weather. This, as you’ve probably figured out, goes horribly wrong. Starring is Gerard Butler, Jim Sturgess, Abbie Cornish, Alexandra Maria Lara, Daniel Wu, Andy Garcia and Ed Harris.

After an unprecedented series of natural disasters threatened the planet, the worldâ€™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 wrongâ€”the system built to protect the Earth is attacking it, and itâ€™s a race against the clock to uncover the real threat before a worldwide geostorm wipes out everything…and everyone along with it.
