Armageddon, Deep Impact, Volcano, The Day After Tomorrow, etc… all of these over the top and enormous “fuck you” cautionary tales are necessary viewings sometimes. Order a giant cherry coke and popcorn with a bag of Reese’s Pieces dumped into the bucket. Its part of a well-balanced cinematic diet and disaster movies are simply part of that. Sure, The Green Knight, Lamb and Spencer are your top three movies of 2021. Even if that is the case there is something about the magic of a big ballsy disaster movie that is a straight up must-watch material. Moonfall is one of those films and one of those occasions. This disaster-bonanza doubles down and stars Halle Berry and Patrick Wilson as our guides through this eye-melting FX volley. Moonfall is a necessary guilty pleasure and that is that.

If you are going to do it big and fun, you gotta get Roland Emmerich and Moonfall has him. The duke of disaster films is back to double-down on this very strange disaster flick. I think it’s the perfect time for something like this to strike. Folks, are super into the whole, big, ridiculous Fast and the Furious film and this feels very much in the same vein. I mean this trailer features a automobile jump that is straight out of the Fast and Furious playbook.

The synopsis for Moonfall goes like this:

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.

The trailer is bonkers and makes me want an extra large buttery popcorn with Reeses Pieces immediately.

Moonfall crashes into Earth and theaters beginning Feb. 4, 2022.
