Buckle up and brace yourself for the ride of a lifetime. Lexus is taking on yet another exciting role as Liongate’s official automotive partner on the epic new sci-fi disaster film, Moonfall, from internationally renowned director Roland Emmerich, in theaters on February 4, 2022.
In Moonfall, a mysterious force knocks the moon from its orbit around Earth and sends it hurtling on a collision course with life as we know it. With mere weeks before impact and the world on the brink of annihilation, NASA executive and former astronaut Jo Fowler (Academy Award winner Halle Berry, Bruised) is convinced she has the key to saving us all – but only one astronaut from her past, Brian Harper (Patrick Wilson, The Conjuring Films, Aquaman) and a conspiracy theorist K.C. Houseman (John Bradley, Game of Thrones) believes her.
These unlikely heroes will mount an impossible last-ditch mission into space, leaving behind everyone they love, only to find out that our Moon is not what we think it is.
The all-new 2022 Lexus NX luxury crossover plays a pivotal role in the heroic effort to restore order to the moon’s orbit on a mission to save the world. Watch below:
“The all-new NX represents the future of the Lexus brand, ushering in the next level of luxury,” said Vinay Shahani, vice president of Lexus marketing. “The NX’s bold styling, intuitive technology and connected driving feel make it the perfect partner for an epic adventure.”
