Moonfall - Emmerich disaster movie

Recommended Posts

Roland is at it again. This time the disaster is the moon suddenly falling towards Earth, apparently by artificially created means. And a rag-tag group have to stop it. $150 million budget.

The Moon. It controls our nights, our days, the seasons, and our ocean tides. And since the beginning of humankind, its phases stood as a symbol of enlightenment, inner knowledge – and our own immortality. Until now. Suddenly and without warning a mysterious force knocks the Moon from its orbit around Earth and sends it hurtling on collision course with life as we know it. With mere weeks before impact, and against all odds, a ragtag team launches an impossible last-ditch mission into space, leaving behind everyone they love and risking everything to land on the lunar surface, unlock its secrets, and save our planet from annihilation. But first they must battle an unknown and unfathomable power that will challenge everything we know about the moon, the universe, and ourselves.

The trailer will be disaster porn heaven.

The film will be terrible; a dog will be in it.

I'll watch it on ITV2+1 in a few years and probably enjoy it.

Prediction: Thanks to our heroes’ sacrifice, the fracturing moon narrowly misses Earth, and all nations, having had a close shave with extinction, unite in peace as one benevolent world government, and then some kids look up at the night sky to see the shards of the broken moon forming a new constellation, a celestial reminder of what we lost and what we gained. The End. Emmerich slumps back, sighs, and tosses the soggy wad of tissues into the bin.

I don't get the appeal of The Day After Tomorrow, it's boring and depressing, the whole film is them stuck in a library. Deep Impact is my modern fav of these, what i compare everything else to. 

 

I liked 2012 more than i expected to, especially the last half.

This sounds really good fun.

 

I can see the moaners now: "it's just a soulless CGI-fest, overblown, blah blah" - Don't watch it then! Problem solved.

Aye, Day After Tomorrow managed to make a world-shattering disaster feel really small: the weather scientists in their little office, the bits in the library, Dad's journey etc. It certainly didn't deliver OTT disaster entertainment like 2012. The only bit that felt sufficiently huge were the scenes on the Mexican border.
