Moonfall is presented as one of the most interesting films of this new film season. Roland Emmerich, who has specialized in catastrophic celluloid through science fiction providing feature films such as Day. Now, with Moonfall, the filmmaker puts us in an extreme situation that will remind many, and only in some respects, of the recent Don't Look Up. The Moon is going to impact the Earth, and only a small group of astronauts can save all of humanity.
Roughly speaking, and as we said, it is like seeing an alternative version of Don't Look Up. Changing. The asteroid for the Moon and maintaining that impossible mission that a small group of people must carry out to save all the people in the world. Only here satire or comedy is not applied at all and it gets to the point with a science fiction that, after watching the first five minutes of footage, even borders on terror (with that kind of force or being black that runs through the space and makes a huge hole in the Moon).
Now, Moonfall releases a new trailer with the three protagonists at the helm: Halle Berry. Who is rising from her ashes and is now returning to do all kinds of film projects, acting and behind the cameras, Patrick Wilson and John Bradley.
Moonfall will premiere in nothing and less, on February 4 if there is no delay due to the coronavirus or the Lionsgate premiere plan is altered. Roland Emmerich has great competitors for this 2022 when it comes to blockbuster premieres, but of course it has been going strong with a stellar cast and with many numbers to be able to sneak in as one of the most important films of the annual panorama.
Something strange is happening in space and that is directly related to the Moon. Furthermore, this situation is directly related to a cataclysmic event of a global nature that promises to eradicate all life on Earth.
That is the premise of Moonfall, the new film by director Roland Emmerich, who has made a career dedicated to planetary destruction and the total annihilation of monuments of humanity. That was something that marked movies like "Day", "The Day After Tomorrow" and "2012".
His new film, co-starring Halle Berry and Patrick Wilson, will hit theaters in 2022 and now presented its first minutes of history. In the material we see a team of astronauts working on fixing a satellite and out of nowhere it is attacked by something unknown that travels in outer space without problems. And of course, that is only the beginning of the problems that are brewing on the Moon.
If the pandemic does not blow up the premiere schedule again, 2022 will see the confrontation between two ways of understanding the blockbuster. That of superheroes, who will once again exercise their dominance of the billboard, and that of sacred cows from Hollywood like Tom Cruise or James Cameron. It will also be the year of the return of totems like David Cronenberg, Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, the premiere of three Brad Pitt films and a good handful of biopics. It could also be a magnificent year for Catalan cinema with new films by Juan Antonio Bayona, Carla Simón, Albert Serra and Isaki Lacuesta.
Thirteen years after exploding the world box office with Avatar, James Cameron returns to the world of Pandora with Avatar 2. A sequel that has not generated the interest that would be expected from the continuation of the highest grossing film in history. Perhaps because the 3D it is no longer a claim to the public. Are the big stars still? It will be seen with the premiere (many times overdue) of the two titles starring the incombustible Tom Cruise, Mission Impossible 7 and Top Gun: Maverick.
The Harry Potter universe will premiere the third installment of the Fantastic Beasts saga (Dumbledore's Secrets) with Mads Mikkelsen replacing the defenestrat Johnny Depp. There will also be video game adaptations (Uncharted, with Tom Holland), disaster movies (Moonfall, from the king of the genre Roland Emmerich) and the frenetic action of Bullet train, on a train full of murderers with Brad Pitt and Sandra Bullock as protagonists will repeat in the adventure comedy The lost city.
