Screener Squad: The Vanishing (2018)

It’s Gerard Butler as you’ve never seen him before: in a small-scale, character-driven indie thriller! With a story VERY LOOSELY based on the Flannan Isle Lighthouse disappearances in 1900, Butler plays one of three lighthouse workers alongside Peter Mullan (Ozark) and Connor Swindells (Netflix’s upcoming Sex Education). While exploring the shoreline of the island their lighthouse rests on, they discover an unconscious man washed onto shore with a treasure chest full of gold bars. However, the unconscious man’s crew soon arrive looking to get their treasure back by any means necessary. How will the lighthouse workers handle the coming threat? Justin, Patience and Ben Glasthal give the scoop on what might be the first good movie of 2019. And it’s a Gerard Butler movie of all things!
