Moonfall will apparently answer the age-old question: what if the Moon wasn’t made of rock? And no, the Moon is not made of cheese in this sci-fi action horror film. So what is it made of? Well, watch the teaser trailer below and decide for yourself. Or at least, you can make some guesses as you watch things blow up:

In space, no one can hear you scream…or explode.

Lionsgate, in association with AGC Studios and Centropolis Entertainment, announce the premiere of Moonfall with the teaser trailer above. In addition to the sci-fi action thriller we got in the teaser, we also get a release date. Apparently, we’ll finally get to see the live-action version of Majora’s Mask on February 4, 2022. The premiere will take place in IMAX theaters and non-IMAX screens . If you love the movie theater experience, then go for it. Otherwise, you might want to hold out a bit longer for the streaming version.

Moonfall: Details

Why do I keep expecting that Moon to turn around and reveal a giant grinning face?

Moonfall is the latest sci-fi disaster film from Roland Emmerich. You know, the guy who directed such gems as Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow, and 2012? Well, this film is the latest in that line, and like those other films, the plot gets pretty wacky. With a star ensemble cast that includes Halle Berry, Patrick Wilson, John Bradley, Michael Peña, Charlie Plummer, Kelly Yu, Eme Ikwuakor, Carolina Bartczak, and Donald Sutherland; you’re in for one heck of a spectacle. The official synopsis from Lionsgate gives us a bit more on how wacky the plot will be:

“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 just dropped a pretty epic teaser trailer. This latest sci-fi disaster film from Roland Emmerich ( Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow, 2012) looks like it will make audiences’ jaws drop just as much. Whether out of the glory of the spectacle, or just sheer disbelief. If you want to see what the Moon looks like on the inside, then check this film out in IMAX theaters on February 4, 2022. And who knows? You might even catch a Majora’s Mask-like grinning face on the Moon.
