For date night or with the older kids:
Itís 1958 and, as part of a dedication ceremony for a new elementary school, a group of students draws pictures to be stored in a time capsule. Flash forward to the present where a teacher, John Koestler (Nicholas Cage), opens it to discover that one of the drawings is filled with rows of apparently random numbers. John soon figures out that the encoded message accurately predicts the dates, death tolls and coordinates of every major disaster of the past 50 years. He realizes that the document foretells three additional events including global destruction that somehow involves him and his son. When John tries to alert authorities, they ignore him, leaving him to take it upon himself to try to prevent any more destruction from taking place. With the help of the daughter and granddaughter of the now-deceased author of the prophecies, John sets out to face the ultimate disaster and the ultimate sacrifice.
