Disasters are nothing new in the film genre. Earth shattering explosions, cataclysmic floods and the possible extinction of the human race are common themes in movies that showcase an end of the world scenario. Gerard Butler stars in the new movie Greenland, a film where he and his family are tasked with seeking shelter in the midst of a comet hurtling towards the Earth.
The film was scheduled to release on July 31 but was delayed twice due to the Covid-19 pandemic and will now arrive in theaters on August 14. Ric Roman Waugh helms the projects (which he directed Butler in Angel Has Fallen) and is produced by Butler himself. The supporting cast will include Morena Baccarin (Deadpool 2), Scott Glenn (Into the Grizzly Maze), King Bach (Coffee and Kareem) and David Denman (Brightburn).
Greenland is being distributed by STX Entertainment while Thunder Road Films is the production company. The film was written by Chris Sparling (Down a Dark Hall) and from the looks of the trailer, will be quite a ride once theaters open back up. Disaster films are back and what a better way to get out of quarantine than by seeing a movie where the world is in imminent danger.
