Perfectly predictable given the producers in the movie industry of today searching for newer and better ways to promote their glowbull-warming disaster movie genre.
Picture yourself a movie producer. Now, picture yourself working on a disaster movie. Say that movie is called "Meteor Apocalypse" or "Meteor Storm" or "The Meteor that ate the Urals". Now, you need a trailer to advertise your movie. You go to sleep one night with that need in mind, and then you wake up thinking about Orsen Well's War of the Worlds and the 1938 New Jersey radio thing on Halloween. Sold alot of books, eh? So, you come up with the idea of doing a modern-day version. Taking clips from the movie, meteors falling on a Russian city, you put them on Youtube and seed the social media sites with reports of meteors on the prowl, with spectacular video clips.
Sounds like the makings of a blockbuster movie! I can't wait till it comes to a local theater so I can drop $100 on tickets and popcorn and raisinets.
