Lionsgate teaser trailer
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 (Academy Award winner Halle Berry) is convinced she has the key to saving us all – but only one astronaut from her past, Brian Harper (Patrick Wilson, "Midway") and a conspiracy theorist K.C. Houseman (John Bradley,"“Game of Thrones") believes her. These unlikely heroes will mount an impossible last-ditch mission into space, leaving behind everyone they love, only to find out that our Moon is not what we think it is.

Directed by Roland Emmerich and written by Roland Emmerich and Harald Kloser and Spenser Cohen, the film also stars Michael Peña, Charlie Plummer, Kelly Yu, Eme Ikwuakor, Carolina Bartczak, and Donald Sutherland.

In theaters February 4, 2022.

From Ryan Nagata (via Instagram):
I worked on this movie last year. I made all the hardware for these suits including the David Clark Gemini-style helmets they’re wearing during the launch. There’s a reason why they’re using all this vintage hardware, but you’ll have to see the film to know why.

'Moonfall' filmmakers saved NASA shuttle simulator now in museum

In "Moonfall," director Roland Emmerich's new disaster film opening this week, a retired space shuttle plays a part in NASA's attempt to save Earth. In reality, though, it was the movie makers that came to the rescue, saving a real NASA simulator from an uncertain fate.

Many Hollywood blockbusters have used the space shuttle as a set piece, adding an array of fictional flights to the fleet's 135 historic missions. Filmmakers have typically shot these scenes by building or leasing mockups of the winged orbiter's crew compartment. Other movies have used green screen and CGI to place their actors into virtual shuttles.

The space shuttle set used to film "Moonfall" stars Halle Berry, Patrick Wilson and John Bradley as astronauts was different. Instead of recreations, Emmerich was able to use the real thing.

Tested video
Adam Savage geeks out over a pair of spacesuits created for the new film Moonfall! In this special unboxing, Adam examines the construction and design of these hero spacesuits to deduce their NASA-inspired lineage and fabrication.

We're also joined by friend of Tested Ryan Nagata, who was hired by the film's production to create the helmets, neckrings, and other hard parts of these suits in collaboration with the costume designer and costuming team.

'Moonfall' pulls scenes from space shuttle Endeavour move 10 years ago

Hollywood has finally taken inspiration from the decade-ago move of a NASA space shuttle through the streets of Los Angeles and it only took the moon falling out of the sky for it to happen.

"Moonfall," which opened in theaters on Friday (Feb. 4), is the first major motion picture to use the 2012 delivery of the space shuttle Endeavour to the California Science Center as the direct basis for a plot point. (Note: this article includes spoilers, but only as it relates to the use of Endeavour in "Moonfall," which was also included in the film's advance marketing.)

Are there any comments from the California Science Center of their thoughts on referring the Endeavour space shuttle for "Moonfall"?

Beyond the comments provided by Dennis Jenkins for our article, I have not seen social media post or other remark by the California Science Center staff.

They did, however, "like" our article on Twitter today.
