There may be no up or down in space, but the moon is definitely falling in Falling Moon. A new clip is provided for Collider features the trio of protagonists flying over a crumbling moon on their way to Earth in a scene reminiscent of the iconic asteroid field maneuvers in the sci-fi classics.
If you haven’t heard of Moonfall, the title is pretty easy to understand: The Moon Is Falling, and astronaut Brian Harper (Patrick Wilson), former astronaut Jocinda “Jo” Flower (Halle Berry), and sound theorist Conspiracy KC Houseman (John Bradley) leaves Earth to stop it – somehow. The quest looks like it will fail, but everything is still not as it seems. Think Apocalypsebut bigger and faster.
Falling Moon know it’s a big, expensive disaster movie. Its $140 million budget makes it one of the most expensive “indie production” films of all time. So who better to direct the production than the director of disaster classics Independence Day and The day after tomorrow. Roland Emmerich directed, co-wrote, and co-produced the film with writers and producers Harald Kloser (known for his feature work on Emmerich’s films) and Spenser Cohen (Extinction).
Michael Peña, Charlie Plummer, Kelly Yu, and Donald Sutherland star alongside Berry, Wilson, and Bradley. Peña replaced Emmy Award-winning actor Stanley Tucci, who was unable to travel to Montreal for filming amid pandemic-related travel restrictions. That is one of many challenges Emmerich was transparent about the confrontation during filming. However, the filmmaker seems to be excited about the film, having recently shared that he wants to make it a sequel inspired by Star Wars.
The new clip is also not the first extended look at the film. In December, opening scene has also been released. And finally we will be able to see Falling Moon in full when it releases in US theaters on February 4.
