It’s been a rough run for Gerard Butler but you gotta hand it to him. He keeps making movies. During this spell of not-so-great films he has fought terrorists, Egyptian gods, mind-controlling gamers, even a planet-killing superstorm. So it shouldn’t surprise us to see him take on fragments of a comet careening towards earth in what is deemed (and you probably guessed it) an “extinction level event”. Gulp!
Look I get it, disaster films are a dime-a-dozen. But I’m not going to lie, a part of me has always found them to be entertaining. Even the dumber ones (and there are plenty of those) offer me at least some degree of entertainment. Butler’s last disaster flick “Geostorm” was a glaring exception. It was genuinely terrible and I’m hoping this one doesn’t follow suit.
“Greenland” is releasing August 14th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
