Author: Newsroom

SANTA MONICA, Calif., January 19, 2022 – As Lionsgate’s highly anticipated sci-fi epic Moonfall, from internationally renowned director Roland Emmerich enters wide release in theaters February 4, 2022, the movie will also be digitally re-mastered into the immersive IMAX® format, the studio announced today.

The IMAX® release of Moonfall will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX’s customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

As part of the announcement, the studio also revealed a new poster exclusively promoting the IMAX release.

“Roland Emmerich is a master at creating spectacular, effects-driven entertainment events that are only enhanced for audiences when experienced in IMAX theaters,” said David Spitz, Lionsgate’s President of Worldwide Distribution.

“As the terrestrial destination to experience the scope and scale of outer space, IMAX will be the premiere place for audiences to enjoy Roland Emmerich’s otherworldly adventure. We’re excited to bring this epic film to our theatres,” said Craig Dehmel, Head of Global Distribution, IMAX. 


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 (Independence DayThe Day After Tomorrow and 2012), and written by Roland Emmerich & Harald Kloser & Spenser Cohen, and produced by Harald Kloser, p.g.a. and Roland Emmerich, p.g.a., the film also stars Michael Peña, Charlie Plummer, Kelly Yu, Eme Ikwuakor, Carolina Bartczak, and Donald Sutherland.

Lionsgate presents, in association with Huayi Brothers International and Huayi Tencent Entertainment International, a Centropolis Entertainment production, in association with Street Entertainment and AGC Studios.
