What to do when the government downplays all of the warnings that something potentially lethal is threatening the world? While that may sound like a question we have to consider right now given our current situation, the answer is pretty simple for Gerard Butler in the upcoming disaster film, Greenland. Grab your family and get them to safety. Only in this case he’s not trying to outrun a deadly pandemic, but a planet-killing comet hurtling towards Earth.
Greenland is the latest action flick led by Butler, who, like him or not, is pretty reliable when it comes to this stuff. The film is directed by Ric Roman Waugh, a solid filmmaker behind some good crime flicks such as Felon, Snitch, and Shot Caller. He also directed Butler in 2019’s Angel Has Fallen, which many consider the best movie in the franchise. Count me in on that score.
The cast includes Deadpool‘s Morena Baccarin, Roger Dale Floyd, Scott Glenn, David Denman, Andrew Bachelor, and Joshua Mikel.
Greenland crashes into theaters on August 14th.
