The Moonfall trailer shows audiences a full moon as they have never seen before.
What would happen if the moon attacked the Earth? Moonfall aims to answer that question in epic fashion. Roland Emmerich helms another apocalyptic disaster movie with Halle Berry, Patrick Wilson, and John Bradly as the unlikely crew spacefaring heroes tasked with saving the planet. Witness the destruction the orbiting mass wreaks when it stops going around and decides to touch down.
Moonfall Official Trailer
The Moonfall trailer is filled with literal earth-shattering events. Aside from chunks and debris of the moon damaging the planet, the film leans into the gravitational pull of the moon to create out of this world destruction. The film looks like an absolute thrill ride full that will provide audiences countless one-liners to quote and tweet about. However, this is a personal take, but the trailer gives us too much.
The teaser trailer had the moon attacking Earth, which created a lot of intrigue and interest. The official trailer reveals that there is an extra-terrestrial life behind the attacks. The mystery is gone. The gravity shifting and disasters look incredible, but knowing aliens are using the moon to attack Earth takes out a lot of the air beneath the wings. It still looks absolutely epic, but the intrigue is greatly diminished. Moonfall touches down in theaters on February 4, 2022.

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.
