Moonfall trailer

Roland Emmerich makes passable imitations of the Irwin Allen disaster movies of my youth. Therefore, I approve of this.

Besides, the moon -- harboring a massive impossible secret -- slamming into the Earth is inherently more interesting than a tall building on fire or an airport.
I like Towering Inferno

Did anyone here read Seveneves by Neal Stephenson? A thing that's never explained cracks the moon apart, and humanity has about two years before the debris raining into the atmosphere renders the planet uninhabitable.

So humanity moves into orbit.
looked it and it's nice hard science fiction and now for the sad part In 2016 Skydance Media hired screenwriter William Broyles Jr., director Ron Howard, and producer Brian Grazer to adapt the feature film

Could be worse.

Uwe Boll, anyone? Michael Bay? How about (Keep You Up Late at) M. Night Shaymalan?

Tommy Wiseau?

Orbit, as in the place where you can predict the paths of all those rocks of any worrisome size

Um. No. To human-made objects, at orbital speeds, rocks the size of a nut and bolt are worrisome, and no, you can't track them all. Sorry.

The better answer is orbit, as in out past where the Moon used to be. Still not perfect, but better.

Don't worry. It doesn't work very well for very long.

Well, that's fine then. :p

Yes, read it, liked it quite a bit. Also, much better execution than "cheesey moon" (unless we're talking Wallace & Grommit, obv) or "tentacles" ;)

Heretic of The Seventh Circle
Found the premise:

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 (Halle Berry) is convinced she has the key to saving us all – but only one astronaut from her past, Brian Harper (Patrick Wilson) and conspiracy theorist K.C. Houseman (John Bradley) believe 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.
It's an egg. Calling it now. Big frack-off dragon inside.
