Director Roland Emmerich, that master of disaster who helmed such movies as Independence Day, 2012 and The Day After Tomorrow, is back with another apocalyptic movie of imminent doom and destruction with the Moonfall trailer.
In Roland Emmerich’s Moonfall, a mysterious force (that isn’t a flatulent Gemma Collins) 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 (Halle Berry) is convinced she has the key to saving us all – but only one astronaut from her past, Brian Harper (Patrick Wilson), and conspiracy theorist K.C. Houseman (John Bradley) believe her. The unlikely heroes will mount an impossible last-ditch mission into space only to find out that our moon is not what we think it is.
Emmerich is something of an expert at orchestrating disaster on a global scale and this looks no different in that respect with worlds colliding and space ships in close calls whilst humans do their best to avoid catastrophe. Looks a great bit of populist escapism so we look forward to seeing this on the big screen!
Moonfall is released on 22nd February 2022 in the UK
