Action-adventure director Roland Emmerich’s Moonfall arrives on digital April 1 and on 4K Ultra HD combo pack (plus Blu-ray and digital), Blu-ray combo pack (plus DVD and digital), DVD, and on demand April 26 from Lionsgate.
Emmerich (Midway, “Independence Day” franchise) and writers Emmerich, Harald Kloser and Spenser Cohen, the film stars Halle Berry (Monsters Ball, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum), Patrick Wilson (Midway, “The Conjuring” franchise), John Bradley (TV’s “Game of Thrones,” Marry Me), Michael Peña (TV’s “Narcos,” Fantasy Island), Charlie Plummer (Lean on Pete, Spontaneous), Kelly Yu (TV’s “Lost Promise”), Eme Ikwuakor (TV’s “On My Block,” “Inhumans”), Carolina Bartczak (TV’s upcoming “Painkiller”), and Donald Sutherland (“The Hunger Games” franchise, TV’s “The Undoing”).
In Moonfall, a mysterious force knocks the moon from its orbit around Earth and sends it hurtling on a collision course with life as we know it. With mere weeks before impact and the world on the brink of annihilation, NASA executive and former astronaut Jo Fowler (Berry) is convinced she has the key to saving the world, but only one astronaut from her past, Brian Harper (Wilson), and conspiracy theorist K.C. Houseman (Bradley) believe her. They mount an impossible last-ditch mission into space.
Special features include audio commentary by Emmerich and writer/producer/composer Harald Kloser; “Against Impossible Odds: Making Moonfall“; “Exploring the Moon: Past, Present, and Future,” which covers what we have learned about the moon through the ages; “K.C. Houseman Speaks the Truth!,” featuring recent viral videos from megastructurist K.C. Houseman; and “Sounds of the Moon,” which covers how the filmmakers utilized sound effects to bring the world inside of the moon to life.
