”The Day After Tomorrow” is one of the 10 movies we can’t wait to see in early 2004

WHAT IT IS Paleoclimatologist Dennis Quaid (pictured, and yes, that’s a real job) tries to save the world from global warming by predicting weather patterns and monitoring the second ice age.

WHY WE CAN’T WAIT It’s a crisis movie that’s not about comets crashing to earth. Plus, we’d pay to watch Quaid read a science journal article on global warming.

BURNING QUESTION Will this advance Quaid’s midcareer revival, like ”Frequency” and ”The Rookie” did, or bring it to a screaming halt, like ”Cold Creek Manor” almost did?

COME FOR A reminder of just how screwed we are for owning SUVs

STAY FOR The underappreciated Jake Gyllenhaal (”Donnie Darko”) as Quaid’s son
