This evolution in technology saves millions of lives by preventing virtually all natural disasters, but when access to the control system falls into the wrong hand there is no telling what will happen next.
The sense of humor here is a sharp change of pace from Geostorm's first trailer, which only had scenes of cities being destroyed and didn't contain half as many witty remarks - Gerard Butler's excuse for being late for a senate meeting (he "literally flew in from space") being the new trailer's standout moment.More news: Sunny and hot today with a chance of showers

Geostorm's plot synopsis: "After an unprecedented series of natural disasters threatened the planet, the world's leaders came together to create an intricate network of satellites to control the global climate and keep everyone safe". I'm gonna go out on a limb and say the "twist" here is there's someone behind it all, probably some evil genius bent on world domination, played by a Scottish actor. Two estranged brothers must fix the program's malfunction before a worldwide Geostorm engulfs the planet. No, not that Avengers, I mean the 1998 "classic" (by the way, not really a classic, very bad movie, don't waste your time watching it).
Dean Devlin (writer/producer, "Independence Day") makes his feature film directorial debut with suspense thriller "Geostorm", starring Gerard Butler ("Olympus Has Fallen", "300"), Jim Sturgess ("Cloud Atlas"), Abbie Cornish ("Limitless"), Alexandra Maria Lara ("Rush"), Daniel Wu ("The Man with the Iron Fists", "Warcraft: The Beginning"), with Oscar nominees Ed Harris ("The Hours", "Apollo 13") and Andy Garcia ("The Godfather: Part III"). Devlin's Electric Entertainment is producing the movie with Skydance Productions. Let's hope this is it. The studio opens "Geostorm" on October 20.
