Roland Emmerich is well known for directing Independence Day and is helming Moonfall from a script he co-wrote with Spenser Cohen and Harald Kloser. And just like most of his films, he has once again assembled a stellar cast which includes Halle Berry, Patrick Wilson, Donald Sutherland, Michael Pena, and John Bradley.
The plot of Moonfall shows the moon getting knocked from its orbit by a mysterious force and sending it on a collision course with earth. And only weeks before impact, Jo Folwer, a former astronaut and current NASA Executive who believes that she has the answers and must team up with Brain Harper, an astronaut from Fowler’s past, and K.C. Houseman, a conspiracy theorist.
But they soon discover that the moon is not what the world has believed it to be!
The new trailer for the film was shared on YouTube by Lionsgate, opens with Holdenfield talking about the Apollo 11 mission and reveals a cover-up involved with the true nature of their space flight which the government kept secret for 50 years. Holdenfield then says, ” Now, it’s too late to stop”, before the trailer begins to highlight the mass destruction and civil unrest the earth is suffering due to the moon’s displacement.
After a few disastrous sights, the trailer builds to a moment that features the protagonist flying the ship through the center of the moon and shows metallic structures spinning through the core, highlighting the fact that the moon doesn’t appear to be a natural formation but a constructed one.
Here’s the trailer for the same:
The film is set to offer an epic spectacle for the audiences thanks to its massive scenes of destruction. Of course, this isn’t the first time Emmerich has made a film that features an apocalyptic-level disaster.
The new Moonfall trailer offers up the fact that the moon doesn’t appear to be real and it looks like it’s keeping much bigger secrets under the wraps. The film is embracing pure science fiction just like most of Emmerich’s films!
The fans are eager to see what other secrets Moonfall is set to reveal, but will have to wait till 4th February 2022!
