Gerard Butler’s ‘Geostorm’ Pushed Back to 2017

Warner Bros. has pushed Gerard Butler drama “Geostorm” back three months to Jan. 13, 2017.

The studio originally dated the film for Oct. 21, 2016. “Geostorm” marks the feature directorial debut of Dean Devlin, who teamed with Roland Emmerich to produce 1996’s “Independence Day.”

Devlin’s Electric Entertainment is producing “Geostorm” with Skydance Productions. Producers are Devlin, Skydance’s David Ellison and Dana Goldberg and Electric Entertainment’s Marc Roskin and Rachel Olschan.

Warner Bros. picked up the project after Skydance developed it. Devlin also wrote “Geostorm,” which centers on a satellite designer who tries to prevent disaster when the world’s climate control satellites fail to function.

The Jan. 13, 2017, date already has four titles: Sony’s “the Dark Tower,” MGM-Sony’s “The Magnificent Seven,” Fox’s “Boss Baby” and Lionsgate’s “Power Rangers.”

Gerard Butler's 'Geostorm' Pushed Back Three Months to Winter 2017

The film marks the feature directorial debut of veteran writer-producer Dean Devlin.


Warner Bros. has pushed back the release of Geostorm from Oct. 21, 2016, to Jan. 13, 2017, the beginning of the lucrative Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend.

The sci-fi adventure film starring Gerard Butler marks the directorial debut of veteran writer-producer Dean Devlin.

The project was developed independently by David Ellison’s Skydance Productions before Warner Bros. picked it up. Skydance remains involved and is co-producing with Devlin's Electric Entertainment.

From a script by Devlin (Independence Day), Geostorm follows a satellite designer (Butler) who heads into space to prevent climate-controlling satellites from creating a man-made storm of epic proportions when he and his estranged brother learn of a plot to assassinate the president.

The Jan. 13-16 holiday weekend is shaping up to be a crowded weekend at the box office. Also set to open are Boss Baby, The Dark Tower, The Magnificent Seven and Power Rangers.

Geostorm Flies To 2017
The Gerard Butler action thriller is on the move

If you were looking forward to seeing Gerard Butler punching a hurricane helping to stop a weatherpocalypse in Geostorm… Just wait longer. The film has been pushed from a planned October 2016 release to a January 2017 slot in the US.

Butler plays a charming but stubborn satellite designer called in to help when the orbiting devices that control the Earth’s weather start to go haywire, leading to fears that the worst storm humanity has ever known could soon befall us all. Jim Sturgess, meanwhile, is Butler’s estranged brother, with whom he’ll have to work if he’s to stop the meteorological meltdown.

No reason has been given for the shift, though there’s always a chance that disaster movie specialist Dean Devlin – here making his film directorial debut – asked for more time to finish what is probably a big effects job and potentially to move the pic into a more favourable slot. Still, the January berth it now occupies was already full of potential movies, including the new Magnificent Seven, DreamWorks Animation's Boss Baby ‘toon, Sony’s planned take on The Dark Tower and Lionsgate's Power Rangers. Looks like Butler will have more than just the weather to worry about.

With Abbie Cornish, Robert Sheehan, Ed Harris, Amr Waked, Katheryn Winnick and Andy Garcia in the cast, Geostorm should be with us around the same time it finally hits the US, given that it had been scheduled for almost the same day here as across the pond originally.
