Exclusive premiere of 'The Day After Tomorrow' only on Star Movies

Mumbai, October 10, 2005: With the threat of global warming looming, the world is in for a rough ride ahead. Chaos, catastrophe, a climate out of control… It's a chilling Hollywood perspective of a world in disaster… Watch the exclusive premiere of the incredible movie THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW, on Friday, October 14, 2005 at 9:00 p.m. only on STAR MOVIES. The movie was a smash hit, earning $542,771,772 at the worldwide box office.

The Day After Tomorrow takes a big-budget, special-effects-filled look at what the world would look like if the greenhouse effect and global warming continued at such levels that they resulted in worldwide catastrophe and disaster. At the center of the story is a paleoclimatologist (a scientist who studies the ways weather patterns changed in the past), Professor Jack Hall, who tries to save the world from the effects of global warming while also trying to get to his son, Sam, who was in New York City when it was overwhelmed by the chilling beginnings of the new Ice Age. In addition to all of the other challenges Dr. Hall faces, he's also going against the flow as humanity races south to warmer climate, and he's the only one going north...

"You'll be swept away by sights that you'll never be able to see on The Weather Channel." - Dallas Morning News

"If it's spectacle you crave at the movies, this is the place."" - Boston Herald

"The special effects are impressive and some of the ironies are amusing." - Orlando Sentinel



The Day After Tomorrow has the cream of Hollywood's crop leading the star cast. Watch some stunning performances of Jaky Gyllenhall (The Good Girl), Dennis Quaid (In Good Company) and Emmy Rossum (Phantom of the Opera) in a movie directed by Roland Emmerich (Independence Day).

Did you know:

- Roland Emmerich confided that the Statue of Liberty would be turned over by the force of the massive amount of water flowing around it but said he wanted to create a symbol of American values that stood up to the forces.



- The US Army loaned several UH-60 Blackhawk helicopters for the rescue scene at the end, prompting the Canadian authorities to reassure the people of Montreal that they weren't being invaded by America.

- Before the film was released, N.A.S.A. sent a memo out to all of its employees stating that they were not allowed to comment on the likelihood of the events portrayed in this movie, but later rescinded the restriction. The consultation by NASA scientists was requested before the filming of the movie, but NASA stated that the events in the film were too ridiculous to actually occur, and hence denied the request.

- The footage shown on TV of the blizzard storm in the UK is taken from an actual news report in January 2002.

For a night of thrills and excitement, don't forget to watch The Day After Tomorrow on Friday, October 14, 2005 at 9:00 p.m. only on Star Movies.
