The director of films like ‘2012’ and ‘The Day After Tomorrow,’ Roland Emmerich is back with another sci-fi film titled “Moonfall,” currently set to debut in theaters on February 4th, 2022, about our planet being destroyed due to the falling of its natural satellite ‘Moon‘.
According to the synopsis, the movie is set when “a mysterious force knocks the Moon from its orbit around Earth and sends it hurtling on a collision course with life as we know it.” Moonfall stars Halle Berry (Storm, X-Men) as a NASA exec who seems to know how to stop it, but the only people who believe her are a former astronaut (Patrick Wilson) and a conspiracy theorist (John Bradley). “These unlikely heroes will mount an impossible last-ditch mission into space, leaving behind everyone they love, only to find out that our Moon is not what we think it is,” the description reads.
But as the first trailer (above) for this movie in its WTF glory teases, the moon’s collision with Earth does not appear to be a natural occurrence. According to Moonfall’s official description, things will get even weirder, “Our heroes will mount an impossible last-ditch mission into space only to find out that our moon is not what we think it is.”
Well, Moonfall also stars Wilson, Bradley, Michael Peña, Charlie Plummer, Kelly Yu, Eme Ikwuakor, Carolina Bartczak, and Donald Sutherland. Moonfall really sounds like a lot of fun and is expected to come to theaters on February 4th, 2022.
