'Ice' action scifi thriller 4-hour miniseries copycat Day After Tom.

Ice — Like The Day After Tomorrow, Except with British People

Ice” is being planned as a four-hour miniseries that will be airing in the UK. I’m guessing it’ll then land on DVD
in the States and elsewhere, probably as a trimmed down version.
a 2-minute trailer is here:

Storyline
It is 2020. Findings by environmental scientist Professor Thom Archer suggest that Halo, the corporate energy company drilling on the Greenland Glacier are causing it to melt. Archer's warnings are ignored, so he heads to the Arctic to find indisputable evidence. Upon arrival, he realizes humankind is under immediate threat, and races home to save his family. The glacier collapses, with devastating consequences. Astonishing weather patterns emerge and plunge the world's temperatures into steep decline.
starring
Richard Roxburgh ... Thom Archer
Frances O'Connor ... Sarah
Nathaniel Lees ... Olaf
Tom Hern ... Gang Leader

Claire Forlani ... Jacqueline
Sam Neill ... Anthony Kavanagh


imdb listing
Ice (2010)

another copycat disaster movie but made as a miniseries?!

There are lots of copycats. That's nothing new.
Hopefully, it will be better.

Lol. This is the typical made-for-TV disaster movie. It's not enough that a natural disaster occurs, it has to be a coorporation so that there can be a villain. Always the same. Sometimes they go even so far that the disaster is just a background plot an it's about a cop (preferrably played by Luke perry) who needs to hunt down a serial killer who has taken his daughter hostage or some other shit.
And the visual effects are going to be horrible.

lol

It sounds like a word for word copycat of the bad movie that shall not be named.

I guess oil companies destroying the entire ecosystem of a Canadian region or letting loose an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico just aren't enough?

As soon as the word "Corporate" showed up in that blurb, we know it's gonna be a diatribe...
