Sci-fi movies have captivated audiences for decades with their imaginative and often futuristic narratives. These movies are surely exciting to watch, but only if executed properly. There are many sci-fi movies out there that have all the facts wrong, including 2022’s Moonfall.

Neil deGrasse Tyson, a well-known astrophysicist, recently explained what’s wrong with Roland Emmerich’s Moonfall. In fact, Tyson stated that this film is worse than 1998’s Armageddon, which is widely known for its unrealistic elements. Moonfall was one of the most expensive independent films ever made, and calling it a failure would be an understatement.

Famous astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson recently appeared on SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show and explained that Roland Emmerich’s 2022 movie, Moonfall, broke many laws of physics, making it officially worse than 1998’s Armageddon. Tyson said,

“It [Moonfall] was a pandemic film that came out, you know, Halle Berry and the moon is approaching Earth, and they learned that it’s hollow and there’s a moon being made out of rocks living inside of it and the Apollo missions were really to visit, to feed the moon being, and I just couldn’t, so I said, “Alright, I thought ‘Armageddon’ had a secure hold on this crown, but apparently not.”

The film featured many famous Hollywood stars including, Halle Berry, Patrick Wilson, John Bradley, Michael Peña, Charlie Plummer, Kelly Yu, Carolina Bartczak, and Donald Sutherland.

Tyson further gave a detailed explanation of the film’s flaws, also adding how they could’ve solved the problem,

“All you gotta do is just nudge it and if you do that early enough, if you nudge it like one centimeter per second to the right, in space, there’s no friction, so it’ll just keep drifting to the right. If you do that early enough, then you can have the asteroid pass in front of the Earth rather than hit the Earth, or you can slow it down so that it’ll pass behind the Earth. Two ways you can adjust it. So, yeah. You know what it’s like? It’s like The Terminator thing where I want to kill your parents so that you’re never born. ‘Really?’ All you have to do is prevent your parents from meeting each other or have them have s*x 20 minutes later than the other one. That will create a different zygote, and you won’t be born, so the movies go, in some cases, they get hyperbolic on their solutions to problems.”

Released in February 2022, Moonfall was a box office bomb. On a massive budget of $138–146 million, the film only grossed roughly $67 million at the global box office. Before the release, Emmerich talked about creating two sequels “back-to-back” but now there is no possibility of that happening.
