Trailer – “Moonfall”

By Matt Neglia 

Lionsgate has released the trailer for “Moonfall” starring Halle Berry, Patrick Wilson, John Bradley, Michael Peña, Charlie Plummer, Kelly Yu, Eme Ikwuakor, Carolina Bartczak, and Donald Sutherland. Directed by Roland Emmerich, the film will be released in theaters on February 4th, 2022.

​Click below to see the trailer.

Plot Synopsis: 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) and a conspiracy theorist K.C. Houseman (John Bradley) 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. 

What do you all think of the trailer? Nobody does large-scale destruction like Roland Emmerich. Nobody. I’m at a point with him where I do not expect much nowadays in the way of story or character. All I want is mayhem and big explosions. “Moonfall” certainly has an exciting hook regarding the Moon on a collision course with Earth. The visual effects already look better than some of Emmerich’s more recent films, but of course, some of the dialogue in this teaser trailer leaves much to be desired. Keep those expectations in check, folks! What do you all think, though? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below or on our Twitter account.
