Gerard Butler Disaster Movie “Greenland” Gets New Trailer and Release Date

Gerard Butler movies typically deserve the biggest screen possible, for spectacle if nothing else. But of course this year is different. Rather than postpone the new apocalyptic thriller Greenland until 2021, STX is releasing the film on PVOD next week.

Butler co-stars with Morena Baccarin (Deadpool), as they race against the clock to get their family to safety from a comet set to make impact and wipe out most of humanity. Their only hope is in the titular landmass, where they're told bunkers that can withstand the event exist. Butler reunites with his Angel Has Fallen director Ric Roman Waugh, a stuntman turned filmmaker, for this epic tale of survival. The script comes from Chris Sparling, mostly known for his horror output. Check out the trailer below.

Greenland will be available on PVOD on December 18.


About Kip Mooney

Kip Mooney
Like many film critics born during and after the 1980s, my hero is Roger Ebert. The man was already the best critic in the nation when he won the Pulitzer in 1975, but his indomitable spirit during and after his recent battle with cancer keeps me coming back to read not only his reviews but his insightful commentary on the everyday. But enough about a guy you know a lot about. I knew I was going to be a film critic—some would say a snob—in middle school, when I had to voraciously defend my position that The Royal Tenenbaums was only a million times better than Adam Sandler’s remake of Mr. Deeds. From then on, I would seek out Wes Anderson’s films and avoid Sandler’s like the plague. Still, I like to think of myself as a populist, and I’ll be just as likely to see the next superhero movie as the next Sundance sensation. The thing I most deplore in a movie is laziness. I’d much rather see movies with big ambitions try and fail than movies with no ambitions succeed at simply existing. I’m also a big advocate of fun-bad movies like The Room and most of Nicolas Cage’s work. In the past, I’ve written for The Dallas Morning News and the North Texas Daily, which I edited for a semester. I also contributed to Dallas-based Pegasus News, which in the circle of life, is now part of The Dallas Morning News, where I got my big break in 2007. Eventually, I’d love to write and talk about film full-time, but until that’s a viable career option, I work as an auditor for Wells Fargo. I hope to one day meet my hero, go to the Toronto International Film Festival, and compete on Jeopardy. Until then, I’m excited to share my love of film with you.
