While flying to a wedding last weekend I caught a few glimpses of a movie that a fellow passenger was watching that looked interesting. I could not hear any audio and I only caught a couple minutes of what I presume was the beginning of the movie.
The first scene had a group of scientists discussing aspects of 3 planets, which I believe were Venus, Earth, and Mars. A screen shows that Venus's temperature was +250 degrees (I didn't see what scale).
Later, the shot zooms above what kind of looks like a solar collection tower in a mountainous area. Energy gathers together at the center, sort of Death Star style, and then shoots a yellowish beam into space.
The next scene shows 2 white guys at a dimly lit bar with some neon lights. I did not recognize any of the actors in any of these scenes, but it seems like a fairly recent movie, probably no more than 10 years old.
