Wall of Fire, a new disaster movie from Imagination Worldwide, is going into pre-production. Read on for plot details and the incendiary poster.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. are planning a movie about the deadliest natural disaster to ever hit the United States: the 1900 Galveston hurricane.
Just a quick post to tell you about three upcoming made-for-tv movies, promising to bring global destruction to your home screen in the not too distant future.

The movie will be released on dvd August 24.
As I haven’t yet seen it, I’m not sure how much of a disaster movie this is (as opposed to your standard action/thriller), but any film that features a jumbo jet slamming into the Washington Monument tickles my curiosity. The Asylum releases Airline Disaster today. Just thought you’d like to know.
I’m a couple of days late to notice this, but Ronald Neame, director of among other things the classic disaster movie The Poseidon Adventure, has died. He was 99 years old. During his career, Neame worked with both Hitchcock and David Lean, and was nominated for three Academy Awards.
Besides The Poseidon Adventure, Neame directed one additional disaster movie: 1979’s Meteor with Sean Connery, Natalie Wood and Karl Malden. Guess it’s about time I got hold of a copy.
It’s been a quiet few weeks here at Disaster Movie World, for which I apologize to any regular readers out there. Been having some other, real-life things on my mind lately, but am now aiming to get back in the saddle with regular updates again.
And why not begin with the news from the hard-working team at The Asylum that principal photography has wrapped on Titanic 2. Yes, the concept finally moves from old joke to actual movie. According to the synopsis on the official site:
On the 100th anniversary of the original voyage, a modern luxury liner christened “Titanic 2,” follows the path of its namesake. But when a tsunami hurls an ice berg into the new ship’s path, the passengers and crew must fight to avoid a similar fate.
Seems like an obvious must-see for a disaster movie fan. Street date is August 24.
Tomorrow I’ll post a fresh film review. Remember to check in if you’re into blimps and nazis…
This time, we can look forward to some Meteor Apocalypse. Joe Lando stars alongside Claudia Christian, whom I liked a lot during her stint as Cmdr. Ivanova on Babylon 5 years ago. The story:
A gigantic meteor enters Earth’s orbit and begins to disintegrate, showering the entire planet with debris.
And what’s that at the top of the poster? Why, yes, it’s a quote from Revelations. Turns out Meteor Apocalypse is released through Asylum’s subdivision Faith Films, so there might be quite a bit of religion thrown in with the mayhem. Buyer beware.
Street date is February 23rd.
Got Syfy? Then you can spend this Saturday watching a disaster movie marathon that lasts all day and most of the night. The main attraction is the premiere of Annihilation Earth (“It’s got meteors…it’s got quakes” — see trailer below).
The other films are Earthstorm, Meteor, 10.5 Apocalypse, something called Ba’al: The Storm God, Ice Twisters, Disaster Zone: Earthquake in New York and (if you’re still awake at 3AM) Avalanche: Nature Unleashed. A full day of cheap thrills, in other words. Congrats!
If you thought Atomic Twister was a great title for a disaster movie (even though the film itself sucked), check this out: Metal Tornado. That’s right: Metal Tornado. And no, it’s not an 80’s heavy metal comedy, it’s an upcoming sci-fi disaster movie. Check out the synopsis and full poster after the jump.
