As mankind begins to fall into ruin in the new trailer for "Moonfall," it'll be up to just three people to save the entire world. Two astronauts and one conspiracy theorist will need to team up and journey to space and find out what's really happening on the Moon. Due to some unidentifiable force, the Moon has been pulled out of its orbit around Earth. Instead of rotating around the Earth, now the Moon is headed directly towards it. A collision between these two large masses is imminent unless these space explorers can find a way to stop it. So, let's take a closer look at this new "Moonfall" trailer and see what insights we can glean.

'Moonfall': Trailer Breakdown

This new preview commences with an elderly man's confession about the truth behind the Apollo 11 mission. On that expedition, it's been said that the crew lost contact with the world for about two minutes. This man claims that statement was false. They didn't lose contact; they just didn't want to report on what they'd found. For 50 years, what they discovered has been kept secret...until now.

As the trailer continues, we get a chance to see the mysterious "force" on the Moon's atmosphere. It looks as though there's some kind of entity that has formed from the Moon's debris. This otherworldly existence is already beginning to affect the well-being of the world. Tsunamis are rising. Riots are forming. And everything else is being blown up or burned. In order to determine how they might prevent this catastrophe, the three brave souls on this mission will have to go inside the Moon. Will they be able to find a way to change the course of the Moon before it hits Earth? Only time will tell. Click below to see the full trailer for "Moonfall."
