The anti-Trump movies are coming at you faster than an F-5 tornado and as hard as a Category 5 hurricane really soon.
And coincidentally, that’s part of the plot of a new anti-Trump movie about climate change coming to a theater near you.
“The weather strikes back in the latest trailer for Warner Bros. climate change disaster epic Geostorm, released by the studio this week.
Gerard Butler plays Jake Lawson, the mastermind behind a series of inter-connected satellites in Earth’s orbit that can control the planet’s weather.
When the system malfunctions over Afghanistan and turns the country into an icy wasteland, Lawson must travel to space to repair it; but he soon learns that the whole satellite system is triggering massive disastrous weather events, including destructive tornadoes and tsunamis.
The plan to save the world includes a plot to kidnap the President of the United States (Andy Garcia) and a whole lot of careful maneuvering through scenes of epic climate-related destruction.
Dean Devlin, who wrote and produced Independence Day, makes his directorial debut with Geostorm. Abbie Cornish, Ed Harris, and Jim Sturgess round out the cast.
Geostorm is in theaters October 20.

Yeah, this looks like a run of the mill Day After Tomorrow-style Roland Emmerich disaster movie.
Typically, they make enough money but are usually met with horrific reviews.
And, of course, there will be asinine eye-rolling plot details.
Word has it that this movie has been reshot many times, and that is almost always a bad sign.

Another sign that indicates this movie could be a disastrous piece of filmmaking is that the big star in it is Gerard Butler.
Butler isn’t a bad actor, but his career is spiraling downwards in a similar way to what happened to Clive Owen.
And if Butler is the best you could get, it’s probably not going to be very good.
Also, you can bet that this movie will bash your head in over and over with its preachy Climate Change message.
They should’ve just called it The Day After Tomorrow 2.
