I’ll just be honest with you – the elevator pitch for Geostorm will either make you cackle like an idiot and guarantee a ticket sale later this year or make you roll your eyes and completely ignore it. I’ll just leave it right here: “As a man heads into space to prevent climate-controlling satellites from creating a storm of epic proportions, his brother discovers a plot to assassinate the president.” What. What? What!
And now, the first Geostorm trailer, starring modern B-movie king Gerard Butler and presumably written using a Mad Libs book, has arrived. Plan accordingly.

You might have read that headline and thought, “What the hell is Geostorm?” Well, you’re not alone. This was a movie that was slated to arrive back in October, but ended up getting pushed back to January 2017 over the summer, only to be pushed back yet again to October 20, 2017. All this comes after the movie shot down in Louisiana in October of 2014. But now there’s more bad news regarding the movie.
A new report indicates that test screenings from last winter resulted in some unfavorable audience reactions, and Warner Bros. Pictures and Skydance had some extensive and expensive reshoots over the past two weeks to fix the movie without the film’s director Dean Devlin and with significant changes to the movie, including the addition of producer Jerry Bruckheimer to oversee the reshoots.

If you’ve been patiently waiting for The LEGO Movie sequel, you’ll have to hold out nine more months. Warner Bros. Pictures has pushed back the release date of the animated follow-up from its original summer 2018 release date to an early debut in 2019. In addition, they’ve also pushed back the release of Geostorm with Gerard Butler nine months, while also bumping up Ben Affleck’s long-developing crime drama Live by Night up by nine months. We’re not sure why nine months is the number of the day here either.
