A couple of things... Star Trek: The Next Generation included planetary control tech in several episodes (read: we control weather in the future), and megabucks Bill Gates, aka The Nerd King, filed a patent for weather control tech way back in 2009 (read: the future is now). So, the geeks are already into this game deep. Now, all Hollywood has gotta do is not f*ck up a story we've been so ready for for so long.
After an unprecedented series of natural disasters threatened the planet, the world's leaders came together to create an intricate network of satellites to control the global climate and keep everyone safe. But now, something has gone wrong - the system built to protect the Earth is attacking it, and it's a race against the clock to uncover the real threat before a worldwide geostorm wipes out everything...and everyone along with it.

In the movie "Geostorm," Gerard Butler stars as Jake, a scientist who, along with his brother, Max (played by Jim Sturgess), is tasked with solving the satellite program's malfunction. Lots of world-getting-f*cked-the-f*ck-up action in the trailer. Good start for the promo run.
