Storytime: once upon a time there was a global apocalypse movie, “Greenland,” in the works. Chris Evans was going to star and Neill Blomkamp (“District 9,” “Chappie“) was set to direct. No matter what you may think of Blomkamp’s promising, but patchy filmmaking career, this combination of talent would have made for one of the most anticipated films of the year. Then, something happened, whatever it was, and both Evans and Blomkamp suddenly dropped out. Months later, “Greenland” was back up and running, but unfortunately, arriving with a big downgrade: a reteaming of Gerard Butler and his “Angel Has Fallen” director Ric Roman Waugh (sorry, but facts).

A family struggles to survive when a comet rages against the earth. John Garrity (Gerard Butler), his separated wife Allison (Morena Baccarin) and son Nathan embark on a perilous journey to their only hope of safety. While several cities around the world are leveled with the earth from the comet’s fragments, the family experiences the best and worst humanity can offer, while battling the growing panic and lawlessness around them. As the countdown to the global apocalypse approaches zero, their last chance is a desperate flight to a possible safe haven.

“Greenland” is currently set for theatrical release on June 12 in the U.S. by STX Entertainment, but given the Covid-19 pandemic, don’t be surprised if this one gets pulled from release and or goes straight to VOD. Watch the first “Greenland” trailer below.
