Gerard Butler disaster flick Greenland is getting a sequel, reports SlashFilm. Titled Greenland: Migration, the movie will take place after the seemingly apocalyptic events from the first film. In it, a giant comet wiped away humanity, the only exception being people sheltered in secret underground complexes. The movie leads Butler (300, Has Fallen trilogy) and Morena Baccarin (Firefly, Homeland) will reprise their performances as a couple trying to save their lives and marriage from the literal end of the world. The film’s director Ric Roman Waugh (Angel Has Fallen) will return as well.
Initially, Greenland was to come out in June 2020. But then a real-life disaster happened, delaying movie releases and causing lockdowns all around the world. The film did come out in July – first overseas and then in the USA. Produced for $35 million (a shockingly modest amount for an epic disaster flick), Greenland went on to gross almost $52 million, which is impressive considering it was the middle of the pandemic. In addition, it received generally favorable reviews due to its tense and stark atmosphere – which is somehow almost more unbelievable.
