Is climate change Hollywood’s new supervillain? Eco-thriller Geostorm, with Gerard Butler as a weather-busting scientist, is the latest movie to battle the climate disaster. From Blade Runner 2049 to Alexander Payne’s Downsizing, films are turning up the heat on the big screen.
Geostorm captured China’s box office with a strong $33 million in its opening weekend. That put it comfortably ahead of Blade Runner 2049, which struggled into third place.
