Greenland trailer: Gerard Butler guides us through an extinction level event
When the sky is on fire would you trust Gerard Butler to protect you? After all, he’s saved the president (three times), survived a geostorm and averted WWIII in a submarine. Greenland arrives at a time when most people's anxiety levels are still sky high, so quite how well a disaster movie like this would go down is anyone’s guess. Greenland is set for an August release date but that feels extremely optimistic, and it looks like the sort of film that could still play well on TV screens, with a mid-size budget that may allow it to transition over to VOD instead. Watch the trailer above to see for yourself.
John Garrity, his estranged wife Allison, and young son Nathan make a perilous journey to their only hope for sanctuary. Amid terrifying news accounts of cities around the world being levelled by the comet’s fragments, the Garritys experience the best and worst in humanity while they battle the increasing panic and lawlessness surrounding them. As the countdown to global apocalypse approaches zero, their incredible trek culminates in a desperate and last-minute flight to a possible safe haven.
Ric Roman Waugh (Angel Has Fallen) directs Butler, with support from Morena Baccarin, Scott Glenn, Andrew Bachelor and David Denman.
Greenland is set for an August launch in UK and US cinemas but with coronavirus figures rising once again around Europe after the easing of lockdown measures, it's hard to imagine cinemas staying open in the UK for too long.
