greenland sequel distributor

Greenland is full of surprises. It’s a surprisingly good Gerard Butler end-of-the-world movie, and it’s also (surprisingly!) getting a sequel. That sequel is called Greenland: Migration, and STX, who distributed the first movie, just plopped down a huge chunk of change for the rights. The sequel will follow Butler’s character and his family after “surviving near-extinction by traversing across the decimated frozen wasteland of Europe to find a new home.”

Greenland Sequel

Greenland, a shockingly good Gerard Butler movie about a planet-killing comet, is getting a sequel. Which is a little surprising, since the movie ended with the comet smashing into Earth and killing off a huge chunk of the population. But those who survived will now be forced to deal with more problems as they trek across the ruined wasteland of what was once Europe. Butler and original director Ric Roman Waugh are both set to return for the sequel, which is called Greenland: Migration.

quarantine stream greenland

(Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)

The Movie: Greenland

Where You Can Stream It: HBO Max

The Pitch: It’s the end of the world as we know it and Gerad Butler does not feel fine.

Why It’s Essential Quarantine Viewing: When Greenland came out last year, I didn’t pay it much mind due to both preconceived notions and willful ignorance. I knew it was a disaster movie about a comet hurtling toward Earth, and I knew it starred Gerard Butler. “Ah,” I thought. “That’ll be dumb!” Not dumb in a bad way, mind you. But dumb in a way that didn’t inspire me to rush to see it. But I’m always the first to admit when I’m wrong, and I was wrong here. Greenland is not what you expect.

greenland vod release

Greenland, a new Gerard Butler movie about a family trying to survive a cataclysmic natural disaster, is headed to where it belongs: VOD. While STX was hoping to release this baby theatrically, and even moved the theatrical date around a bit, let’s be honest – a disaster flick with Gerard Butler seems like the perfect VOD fodder – and I don’t mean that in a negative way.

greenland release

Is this a sign of things to come? Or just a smart business decision? Greenland, the latest disaster pic featuring Gerard Butler, will now open overseas before it comes to American shores. This is a relatively small production from STX Films, but larger studios – like Warner Bros. – might soon be taking similar approaches to big movies.

Greenland Movie - Chris Evans in Snowpiercer

Chris Evans has been quite busy with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but his streak as Captain America is seemingly coming to an end after Avengers 4. That means he’s going to have a lot more time on his hands for other projects, and we just found out what one of them will be.

Neill Blomkamp, the director behind District 9, Elysium and Chappie has line up his next film, and it’s not that gestating Alien project that looks dead in the water. Instead, it’s a movie called Greenland that Chris Evans will lead, and it sounds quite different from the techno-based, gritty futuristic worlds we’re used to seeing Blomkamp play in on the big screen.
