Warner Bros. and Skydance Productions have released the first teaser trailer for their upcoming disaster thriller “Geostorm,” starring Gerard Butler. The film marks the feature editorial debut for Dean Devlin, writer/producer of such films as “Independence Day” and “Stargate.”
“Geostorm” takes place in a time when the weather is controlled by futuristic satellites in outer space. When the machines start malfunctioning, they create chaos and a weather disaster of epic proportions. Butler stars as a scientist who gets sent into space to fix the malfunctioning satellites.
The trailer shows the catastrophe caused by the satellites, set to the relaxing tune of “What a Wonderful World.” Devlin wrote the film alongside Paul Guyot. The cast also includes Abbie Cornish, Ed Harris, Andy Garcia, Jim Sturgess, Eugenio Derbez, Mare Winningham, Alexandra Maria Lara and Egypt’s biggest international star, Amr Waked.
