Geostorm (15)
Well, Al Gore it ain’t. This is climate change Hollywood style, in which our relationship with the weather
is wrapped up in a massive sci-fi disaster movie starring Gerard Butler, a load of Earth-orbiting space stations and various grim-faced generals and cocky scientists trading plot-necessary insights in dark, screen-illuminated rooms. It’s Jerry Bruckheimer. He doesn’t do nuance.
The premise here is that man has, King Canute-like, finally managed to control the weather, using technology perched in the stratosphere to offset hurricanes, promote rainfall and regulate temperatures. After 20 or so years, though, these satellites start to malfunction and isolated “pods” of extreme weather start erupting all around the world, with the threat of massive, planet-busting ones on the horizon unless something is done about it, like, now.
In cinemas from October 19
