Director Roland Emmerich seemingly just loves to make films about massive destruction that could lead to the end of the world. His latest, MOONFALL, appears to not really dispel that notion. The film, which Emmerich also co-wrote is headlined by Halle Berry (JOHN WICK CHAPTER 3: PARABELLUM) and stars Patrick Wilson (THE CONJURING), Michael Peña (ANTMAN), and Donald Sutherland (AD ASTRA). It will be released on February 4th 2022 in theaters nationwide.
The film’s official synopsis:
“In MOONFALL, a mysterious force knocks the Moon from its orbit around Earth & sends it hurtling
on a collision course with life as we know it. With mere weeks before impact & the world on the brink of
annihilation, NASA executive & former astronaut Jo Fowler (Academy Award® winner Halle Berry) is
convinced she has the key to saving us all – but only one astronaut from her past, Brian Harper (Patrick
Wilson) & a conspiracy theorist K.C. Houseman (John Bradley) believe her. 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.”
Here is the “announcement” teaser:
Are… are they going to fight the Moon?! I guess we will find out next year.
