Movie preview: 'GeoStorm'

Set to be released on Oct. 20, 2017, "GeoStorm" is an upcoming film set in a futuristic world where the government controls the weather through a satellite set in orbit around the world.

GeoStorm is about two brothers who are tasked with solving the problems of the Dutch Boy Program (a world-government-built climate controller meant to keep natural disasters away) from completely destroying the world after two years of use. The disasters start because of a malfunction in the system which causes a "catastrophic" amount of natural disasters.

Two of the best-known actors in the film are Gerard Butler, who is best known for action movies such as "300" and "Gods of Egypt," and Ed Harris, who is known for appearing in many films and even video games. Child actor Jeremy Ray Taylor, who stars in the new horror movie "It" also appears in the film.

The movie was originally set to be released in March of 2016, but the production company, Warner Brothers, cancelled the date in August 2014 and then pushed it back several more times in order to avoid conflict with other movies. Some of those movies included "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," "Jungle Book: Origins," and "Kong Skull Island."

'GeoStorm' is rated PG-13, and the running time is one hour and 49 minutes.
