Despite making $221 million worldwide, the film was considered a box office flop due to its $120 million budget (excluding marketing costs). Warner Bros. lost $74 million on the film, which received mostly negative reviews and was panned for its “uninspiring” plot and “lackluster” visuals before it was released in Dolby Cinema.

Plot of Geostorm

After multiple natural disasters in 2019, a multinational coalition commissions “Dutch Boy” climate-control satellites. After Dutch Boy neutralises a typhoon in Shanghai, a Senate subcommittee reprimands senior architect Jake Lawson for bringing Dutch Boy online without authorization and replaces him with his brother Max, who works for US Secretary of State Leonard Dekkom.

UN team in Registan Desert finds frozen settlement three years later. Makmoud Habib, an Indian engineer at the International Climate Space Station (ICSS), downloads Afghanistan satellite data onto a hard drive before his death. Max persuades Jake to examine the ICSS after encouraging President Palma to do so. A satellite creates fire whirls and building collapses in Hong Kong.

Jake visits the ICSS to investigate the damaged, data-wiped satellites. He works with station commander Ute Fassbinder and her crew of Eni Adisa, Duncan Taylor, Al Hernandez, and Ray Dussette. They find the hard disc but hide it from the crew, fearing a traitor, and analyse the data, leading to the revelation that a computer virus has been injected, causing problems and wiping out senior staff login access.

Jake tells Max he must reboot the system to remove the malware, which requires Palma’s kill code. ICSS staff knock out defective satellites with replacements.

Cheng Long warns Max of a “Geostorm” if they lose login access on Earth. Rogue government agents pursue Cheng to Washington, D.C., and kill him in a car accident, but not before he says “Zeus.” Max enlists his lover, Secret Service agent Sarah Wilson, to obtain the Project Zeus code. The ICSS team loses control as the virus activates the self-destruct programme.

Max realises Orlando is next when a hailstorm smashes Tokyo and an offshore cold snap hits Rio de Janeiro. Max asksfor  Dekkom’s help, but Dekkom tries to kill him, revealing himself as the saboteur; Max tells Sarah. To safeguard Palma from Dekkom’s agents and get the murder code, the two abduct him.

Max explains their operations and Dekkom’s duplicity to Palma as they flee the arena. After outsmarting Dekkom’s mercenaries, the three arrest Dekkom and confront him about his plans to destroy elected officials in America’s line of succession, allowing him to govern the world while eliminating America’s foes. Max and Sarah take Palma to Kennedy Space Center to transfer the code, but the self-destruct mechanism cannot be stopped.

Jake concludes that Duncan is the traitor who masterminded Habib’s death and manufactured the storms on Dekkom’s orders and confronts him as other disasters strike around the world (including tornadoes in Mumbai, a massive heatwave in Moscow, and a megatsunami in Dubai).

Duncan joins Dekkom’s scam for the high compensation compared to his low software engineer wage. Jake mocks Duncan because if he doesn’t stop the Geostorm, he’ll have nowhere to spend his millions, but Duncan says he’s curious to see how the planet ends. Jake escapes, but Duncan ejects into space. Jake and Ute stay behind to reboot the system, eliminate the malware, and transfer satellite control to NASA, stopping the Geostorm.
