Zack Snyder’s ‘Rebel Moon’ Primed To Take Over Netflix


Rebel Moon is coming to Netflix, and it’s gearing up to take over the landing page and become your new obsession.

Netflix has decided to move Rebel Moon up on their release schedule. The streamer is eventizing the release of the filmmaker’s upcoming sci-fi fantasy epic, moving up the release date and having the movie make a splash on the streamer’s homepage with a new special cinematic billboard.

Rebel Moon: Part One – a Child of Fire will now premiere on the streamer at 7 p.m. PT on Dec. 21, hours earlier than its scheduled Dec. 22 debut. For the first days in the wake of its release, audiences will be treated to a cinematic digital billboard that will take over the streamer’s homepage around the world. The billboard will run Dec. 21 to 25.

After crash landing on a moon in the furthest reaches of the universe, Kora (Sofia Boutella), a stranger with a mysterious past, begins a new life among a peaceful settlement of farmers. But she soon becomes their only hope for survival when the tyrannical Regent Balisarius (Fra Fee) and his cruel emissary, Admiral Noble (Ed Skrein), discover the farmers have unwittingly sold their crops to the Bloodaxes (Cleopatra Coleman and Ray Fisher) — leaders of a fierce group of insurgents hunted by the Motherworld. Tasked with finding fighters who would risk their lives to defend the people of Veldt, Kora and Gunnar (Michiel Huisman), a tenderhearted farmer naive in the realities of war, journey to different worlds in search of the Bloodaxes, and assemble a small band of warriors who share a common need for redemption along the way: Kai (Charlie Hunnam), a pilot and gun for hire; General Titus (Djimon Hounsou), a legendary commander; Nemesis (Doona Bae), a master swordswoman; Tarak (Staz Nair), a captive with a regal past; and Milius (E. Duffy), a resistance fighter. Back on Veldt, Jimmy (voiced by Anthony Hopkins), an ancient mechanized protector hiding in the wings, awakens with a new purpose. But the newly formed revolutionaries must learn to trust each other and fight as one before the armies of the Motherworld come to destroy them all.
