Moonfall has an estimated budget of $140 million, one of the most expensive independent films ever made. The title is self-explanatory: After the moon mysteriously falls from orbit, astronauts Jocinda Fowler (Halle Berry) and Brian Harper (Patrick Wilson) team up with conspiracy theorist KC Houseman (John Bradley) to save the Moon. Land. It’s a setback for genre director Roland Emmerich, who has plenty of experience directing sci-fi disaster movies like “Independence Day,” “Godzilla,” “The Day After Tomorrow” and “2012.” Unfortunately, the audience is tired of his routine.
“Moonfall” grossed no more than $60 million at the worldwide box office. Overlooked by the comedy sequel “Jackass Forever” in its opening weekend, “Moonfall” continued to blur. Unfortunately for Emmerich, film critics weren’t kinder, though some critics have argued that “Moonfall” is so ridiculous that it’s entertaining and could be resurrected as a cult classic. The ending of “Moonfall” is so completely insane that the few people who actually saw it in theaters were shocked. The film shows the possibilities of the entire series, with Emmerich saying before the film’s release that if it was successful, he wanted to film two sequels in a row. At this point, it seems like an unlikely possibility. Although the chances are slim, Bradley has said that if Emmerich has his way, there will be two sequels. even more ridiculous as the first installment. “Moonfall” premieres on HBO Max on September 9.
