In Greenland, 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.

Once you do so, you’re guaranteed viewing of the film. Then, you wait in a virtual waiting room until the movie starts at 7 p.m.
Here are some other tips on how virtual screenings work:
The person who RSVPs will receive a confirmation email.
An hour before the screening starts, the user will then receive a unique, encrypted link via their email to access the “online screening room.”
Screenings do have a limit, so the sooner you click the link, the sooner you can confirm their spot.
User 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 their email and will not lose their spot.
Once the countdown ends, you can start the movie!
By default they will have 20 minutes to start the movie, and up to 30 minutes of pause time (but this may vary, so don’t pause if you don’t need to)
