A Brief History

For a chance to view an advance virtual screening of the American disaster film Greenland on Wednesday, December 16, 2020 at 7:00 PM, please click the link at to RSVP.  Each of those who RSVP in time will receive a confirmation email.  An hour before the screening starts, you will then receive a unique, encrypted link via your email to access the “online screening room.”  Screenings do have a limit, so the sooner you click the link, the sooner you can confirm your spot.  You can stay on the countdown page until time elapses, but if you close the page on accident, you can still come back through the same link that was sent to your email and will not lose your spot.  Once the countdown ends, you can start the movie!  By default you will have 20 minutes to start the movie, and up to 30 minutes of pause time (but this time may vary, so do not pause if you do not need to).  The Ticktbox platform recommends watching from one of the main browsers – Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.  Unfortunately, Smart TV and game console browsers are not supported.  Screenings can be watched on a TV if it is playing on a computer or device running one of the above browsers and then connect via HDMI or a screen mirroring to devices Airplay or Chromecast.

Digging Deeper

Greenland is directed by Ric Roman Waugh and written by Chris Sparling.  The film stars Gerard Butler (who also co-produced), Morena Baccarin, Roger Dale Floyd, Scott Glenn, David Denman, and Hope Davis.  The film is scheduled to be released in the United States by STX Entertainment through video on demand on December 18, 2020.

In this film, a family fights for survival as a planet-killing comet races to Earth. John Garrity (Gerard Butler), his estranged wife Allison (Morena Baccarin), and young son Nathan make a perilous journey to their only hope for sanctuary. Amid terrifying news accounts of cities around the world being leveled by the comet’s fragments, the Garrity’s experience the best and worst in humanity while they battle the increasing panic and lawlessness surrounding them. As the countdown to global apocalypse approaches zero, their incredible trek culminates in a desperate and last-minute flight to a possible safe haven.
