Moonfall: 4K, Blu-ray, DVD, digital releases include audio commentary and featurettes

Director Roland Emmerich had some hope that his latest disaster epic, Moonfall, was going to be the start of a trilogy… but given that the movie only made $41 million at the global box office (and even had its theatrical release cancelled in Canada), it looks like this one is going to be a standalone. Moonfall has now received a digital release (you can watch it on Amazon at THIS LINK), and 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD releases will follow on April 26th. Whether you’re a fan of the movie or if you want to hear people involved with it explain what went wrong (our own Gaius Bolling gave the movie a 4/10 review, which you can hear in the video embedded below), you’ll be glad to know that Moonfall comes to home video with some special features.

Scripted by Emmerich with Harald Kloser – who is the director’s go-to composer and also worked on the screenplays for Emmerich’s films 201210,000 B.C., and Dark Horse – and Spenser Cohen (Extinction 2018), Moonfall has the following synopsis:

A mysterious force knocks the Moon from its orbit around Earth and send 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 (Halle Berry) is convinced she has the key to saving us all, but only one astronaut from her past, Brian Harper (Patrick Wilson) and a conspiracy theorist K.C. Houseman (John Bradley) believe 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.

The film stars Halle BerryPatrick Wilson, John Bradley, Michael Peña, Donald Sutherland, Charlie Plummer, Wenwen Yu, Eme Ikwuakor, and Carolina Bartczak.
