As 2021 heads towards a more hopeful close than 2020 did, we are featuring more of the trailers that “speak” to our demographic. As many readers know, when I chose to make PiercingMetal a bit more Pop Culture heavy, I began sharing more of the Horror and Science Fiction trailers here as well since everything wasn’t going to be a super-hero movie or series. This Lionsgate Films release “Moonfall” comes care of director Roland Emmerich and brings memories of his “Independence Day” film to mind. Take a look at the recently released teaser trailer.
The Premise: The Moon is knocked from its orbit by an unknown force and put onto a collision course with Earth. Two astronauts and a conspiracy theorist work together to attempt to avert disaster and discover that the moon is not what it seems.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: So the world has been living with the pandemic for close to two years now and its been loaded with surprises so a film about the moon seeming to attack us makes sense to me at this point in time but I digress. Most know Emmerich from the aforementioned “Independence Day”, which was amazing, and the equally horrific “Godzilla” and “Independence Day: Resurgence” which were mostly unwatchable films. I am unsure of how much I want to see a film about the moon wiping us out but maybe when its closer to release I will have a better idea of my own plans. I’ve gone to the movies during the pandemic and try to do so when there is barely anyone around me. I’ll need to do this again for the soon to open “Eternals” and then December’s “Spider-Man: No Way Home” but that is all I plan on seeing for the duration. This one opens in February of 2022 and as I finally close up this editorial brief, I wonder what you readers think about it. Is this the kind of film that you look forward to seeing? Does Earth being in the throes of an unimaginable disaster ring that bell for you? Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you next time around. Please be safe out there.
