Moonfall IMAX poster: Roland Emmerich film remastered for immersive format

Moonfall, the latest disaster epic from Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow, and 2012 director Roland Emmerich, is scheduled to reach theatres on February 4th, including IMAX screens – and a new poster for the film has arrived online to promote those IMAX showings. You can check that poster out at the bottom of this article.

A press release notes that

The IMAX release of Moonfall will be digitally remastered 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.

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.

Emmerich and Kloser produced Moonfall, with Cohen serving as executive producer alongside Alastair Burlingham, Edward Cheng, Ute Emmerich, Raymond Hau, Hu Junyi, Carsten H.W. Lorenz, J.P. Pettinato, Gary Raskin, Marco Shepherd, Karl Spoerri, Viviana Vezzani, Wang Zhongjun, and Wang Zhonglei. Daniel Auclair is co-producer, and John A. Amicarella, Michael Ritter, Omar Soto, and Gina Maria Taylor are associate producers.

Confession: I have never seen an IMAX screening of any movie. The closest I’ve ever gotten are Cinemark XD screenings of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol and Skyfall, and I understand that’s not the same.
