The moon has been Earth’s close companion for billions of years, and while our view of its shape and size varies somewhat as it orbits our planet, it remains a constant presence in the sky.

When confronted with this high-stakes and over-the-top disaster scenario, the film’s characters scramble to save the planet; in doing so, they learn that our natural satellite isn’t so natural after all.
