Director Roland Emmerich says he’s finished with the ‘Stargate’ franchise

The latest blockbuster from the maestro of mayhem, Roland Emmerich, has finally arrived. Called “Moonfall,” the film promises a cosmic catastrophe on a truly biblical scale. Turns out something has caused the moon to be knocked out of orbit and now it’s on a direct collision course with Earth.

However, this is far from Emmerich’s first rodeo; he’s responsible for destroying our little blue-green planet many times in past films. In “2012” it was boiled by mutant neutrinos that melted the Earth’s core; in “The Day After Tomorrow” it was plunged back into an ice age and in “Independence Day” it was almost annihilated by a hostile alien race called the Harvesters.
