February 9 at the cinema – After Independence Day 2 and Midway, Roland Emmerich is back on the big screen with a film mixing SF and action: Moonfall. A mysterious force has propelled the Moon out of its orbit and is hurtling it towards Earth. The impact will take place in a few weeks, involving the annihilation of all life on our planet.
Former NASA astronaut Jo Fowler believes she has the key to saving us all, but only two people believe her: an astronaut she once knew, Brian Harper, and a conspiracy theorist, KC Houseman. These three unlikely heroes will attempt an impossible mission in space… and discover that our Moon is not what we believe.
February 16, 2022 at the cinema – A series of ultra-popular video games will be entitled to its adaptation to the cinema this year: Uncharted. Directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland), the film tells the story of young and fearless Nathan Drake (Tom Holland in a very physical new role) and his humorous and sharp partner, Victor “Sully” Sullivan (Mark Wahlberg ), during their meeting and first treasure hunt.
In this epic action-adventure across the globe that takes place before the events told in the video games, the two characters go on a perilous search for the “greatest treasure in the world”, while following clues that could lead to Nathan’s long-lost brother. They will nevertheless have to face in their quest Antonio Banderas, in the role of the big villain of the feature film.

A dark film in Gotham City, such is the avowed ambition of the director, who claimed to have been inspired by the tormented personality of Kurt Cobain to give birth to this new incarnation of Bruce Wayne.
Around a Robert Pattinson who seems to have already convinced the refractory, Zoë Kravitz will camp an incandescent Catwoman, while Colin Farrell will be unrecognizable in Penguin, whose place in the plot would be limited. However, the one who may well steal the show from our Batman could well be the Riddler, played by Paul Dano.
March 16, 2022 at the cinema – After The Veteran and Ice Road, Liam Neeson continues with a new badass role in Blacklight! This time, the actor slips into the costume of Travis Block, a secret government agent who specializes in eliminating agents whose cover has been discovered.

At 69, Liam Neeson wants to show that he still has some under the pedal!
