(mbc.net) Fifty-years ago students at Caleb Koestler's (Chandler Canterbury) high school buried a time capsule containing pictures and items representing what they imagined the future would be.  One young girl, Lucinda Embry (Lara Robinson) placed a sheet of paper with cryptic numbers scrawled upon it inside the capsule.

John (Nicolas Cage) is Caleb's father, an astrophysicist who finds that the numbers are not random at all, but the precise dates, death tolls, and coordinates of every major disaster since the time capsule was buried. More so, there are three dates that are still in the future. With the final date drawing closer, John locates the daughter of the young girl who wrote these sheets 50 years ago, as he tries to convince her that they may need to work together to preempt that final date.

Knowing was a box office smash, garnering $187 million internationally -- quadrupling its $50 million budget.
