Roland Emmerich’s particular brand of planetary destruction is back on display in the first teaser trailer for Moonfall.
Say what you will about Roland Emmerich, the man knows how to make disasters look epic and amazing. As a big disaster movie fan, I’ve always enjoyed his brand of over-the-top, goofy movies. Thankfully his next film, Moonfall, looks to keep bringing the goods in that regard.
Welp, I’m all aboard the hype train.
In Moonfall, 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. With mere weeks before impact and the world on the brink of annihilation, NASA executive and 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, “Midway”) and a conspiracy theorist K.C. Houseman (John Bradley, “Game of Thrones”) believes 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.
Moonfall is set to hit theaters on February 4, 2022.
