Lionsgate has released a new trailer for its upcoming sci-fi disaster pic, Moonfall, and it gives us much insight into what to expect when it launches into theaters on Feb. 4, 2022.
Helmed by veteran Hollywood movie director, Roland Emmerich – who also brought us beloved classics like 1992’s Universal Soldier, 1996’s Independence Day, and 2004’s The Day After Tomorrow – Moonfall will be the 20th feature in the auteur’s filmography and his first pic since 2019’s box office bomb, Midway.
Go ahead and check out the new trailer in full down below:
Starring Halle Berry (X-Men, Cloud Atlas), Patrick Wilson (Insidious, Aquaman), and John Bradley (Game of Thrones), Moonfall boasts some decent on-screen star power. It’s especially eye-catching to see Bradley in his first major role since his tenure on David Benioff and D. B. Weiss’ acclaimed TV adaptation of George R. R. Martin’s iconic fantasy novels.
From a narrative perspective, the film’s story appears to answer the age-old question: “What would happen if the moon fell out of the sky and came hurtling down to earth?” The answer? Bad things. Lots and lots of bad things.
For more information about Moonfall, here’s some more context via Lionsgate:
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.
Directed by Roland Emmerich and written by Roland Emmerich & Harald Kloser & Spenser Cohen, the film also stars Michael Peña, Charlie Plummer, Kelly Yu, Eme Ikwuakor, Carolina Bartczak, and Donald Sutherland.
Moonfall lands in theaters on Feb. 4, 2022.
