  • The much-awaited sci-fi disaster film “Moonfall,” directed by Roland Emmerich and starring Halle Berry, Patrick Wilson, John Bradley and Kelly Yu, will hit theaters worldwide on Feb. 4.
  • Singer and actor Kelly Yu talked about her role in an exclusive interview with NextShark.

German film director Roland Emmerich, who is heralded as the “master of disaster” for his hit movies such as “2012” and “Independence Day,” is back with a new sci-fi catastrophe film. Chinese Canadian singer and actor Kelly Yu co-stars in the film and talked with NextShark about why “Moonfall,” however, isn’t just about destruction.

“Moonfall,” independently produced on a budget of $140 million, follows the story of NASA executive Jo Fowler, played by Halle Berry, and former NASA astronaut Brian Harper, played by Patrick Wilson, as they try to stop the Moon from crashing into Earth. The main cast also includes John Bradley as conspiracy theorist K.C. Houseman, Michael Pena as wealthy car dealer Tom Lopez, Charlie Plummer as Brian’s son Sonny Harper and Kelly Yu as student intern Michelle.
