Den of Thieves trailer

Gerard Butler, who can currently be seen fighting the weather in Geostorm, has yet another film on the horizon. In Den of Thieves, Butler is an unorthodox cop chasing after a team of robbers. It’s sort of like heat, but instead of Al Pacino and Robert De Niro, we get Gerard Butler and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson. Watch the Den of Thieves trailer below.

Geostorm reviews

Geostorm has had a rough road to the big screen. The Dean Devlin-directed disaster movie was shot back in 2014 but after some reportedly awful test screenings, the film underwent massive and expensive reshoots and was delayed all the way until today, when it finally stumbled into theaters without press screenings or even Thursday night showings in most markets.

Sounds bad, right? Well, the reviews have arrived, and while the movie’s 18% Rotten Tomatoes score might seem dire, some of the reviews are having the opposite effect intended: they’re painting the film as being so bad that it might actually be worth seeing if you’re amped for a “so bad it’s good” experience. Take a look at some Geostorm review quotes below, and decide for yourselves whether you’re ready to face down the storm(s).

Talk about an ill-timed movie. On the tail of some of the most devastating hurricanes the United States has seen in decades, Geostorm is coming in to…regale you with an inspiring story of Gerard Butler fighting the weather? Unfortunately, it looks like he’s on the losing side in the new Geostorm trailer, which features all manner of CGI earthquakes, hail storms, tsunamis, and hurricanes. Because that’s what people to go the movies for, to see big budget recreations of disasters that are all too real.

Geostorm trailer 2

I caught some of Independence Day on cable during the Fourth of July, and was struck by how Hollywood doesn’t make many movies like that anymore. Sure, massive blockbusters with ensemble casts are a dime a dozen, but the disaster movie genre isn’t what it used to be.

Enter Dean Devlin, the man who wrote and produced Independence Day. His directorial debut, Geostorm, looks to singlehandedly resurrect that cheesy, ludicrously-plotted type of movie to theaters. If you’re looking for a film that features ridiculous concepts like Gerard Butler (300) trying to outsmart malfunctioning satellites that control the weather while Jim Sturgess (Across the Universe, 21) and Abbie Cornish (Limitless) kidnap the President (Andy Garcia), you’re going to love this.

a family man trailer

We’ve seen Gerard Butler save the President twice, play a God, and soon we may even witness him discover a way to defeat a Geostorm in this year’s Geostorm. Butler is typically a powerful, bone-breaking presence on the big screen, but he isn’t playing an action hero in A Family Man. In the drama, which co-stars Alison BrieWillem Dafoe and Alfred Molina, Butler is a success hungry headhunter in Chicago who has trouble balancing his work and family life, until everything changes.

Below, watch A Family Man trailer.

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.

Geostorm Reshoots

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.

2013 saw the release of two “Terrorists Take Over the White House Movies” and Olympus Has Fallen was the winner in that particular showdown, outgrossing the glossier and far more expensive White House Down at the box office. Somehow, the trashy and often technically inept Gerard Butler joint is getting a sequel and the movie where Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx have a limo chase on the White House lawn is not. I’m still a little sore about this.

And yet, I do appreciate the B-movie charms of the Olympus Has Fallen and especially enjoy how approximately 64% of the film consists of Butler’s disgraced Secret Service agent wandering dark hallways and stabbing people in the head. There are more head-stabbings per minute in Olympus Has Fallen than another other action movie ever made, which makes the dearth of head-stabbings in these new batch of London Has Fallen clips rather disappointing.
