In INDEPENDENCE DAY Roland Emmerich brought you the near destruction of the earth by aliens. Now, in THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW the enemy is an even more devastating force : nature itself. Tornadoes rip Los Angeles; a massive snow storm pounds New Delhi; hail the size of grapefruit batters Tokyo, and in New York City, the temperature swings from sweltering to freezing in one day. In this special-effects packed, highly anticipated event motion picture, an abrupt climate change has cataclysmic consequences for the entire planet.
Quaid plays a climatologist who tries to figure out a way to save the world from abrupt global warming. He must get to his young son (Gyllenhaal) in New York, which is being taken over by a new ice age. Rossum will star as the love interest of Jake Gyllenhaal's character, a member of an academic decathlon team.
