When the network of satellites designed to control the global climate starts to attack Earth, it's a race against the clock for its creator to uncover the real threat before a worldwide Geostorm wipes out everything and everyone.
When catastrophic climate change endangers Earth's very survival, world governments unite and create the Dutch Boy Program: a world wide net of satellites, surrounding the planet, that are armed with geoengineering technologies designed to stave off the natural disasters. After successfully protecting the planet for three years, something is starting to go wrong. Two estranged brothers are tasked with solving the program's malfunction before a world wide Geostorm can engulf the planet.
Jerry Bruckheimer was brought in to produce at a very late stage. The studio rejected the original cut due to poor reactions from test audiences. Extensive re-shoots, featuring new material written by Laeta Kalogridis, were helmed by Danny Cannon over two weeks, for a reported $15M. See more »
In the initial sequence, the satellites are shown as modifying and controlling the weather by sending some sorts of missiles and requiring the presence of the main satellite base to provide them with more ammunition.

The East River swallowed Lower Manhattan. A heat wave in Madrid killed two million people in just one day. But in that ...

Very shortly into the production of this film, they just had to know how bad it was. Even someone with a 2 year old's level of intelligence ... someone who had never seen a movie in their life ... would know how bad it was. But they didn't stop ... didn't re-write the script ... edit the story ... change the plot. Something? Nope, they just kept going and made this horrible and ridiculous movie anyway! SHAME!
