Scarlett Johansson and Channing Tatum lead an ensemble cast in Greg Berlanti’s comedy about the moon landing. Watch the first Fly Me To The Moon trailer.

Before she (reportedly) heads off to Jurassic City, Scarlett Johansson has a pit stop to make; the moon. 

Well, kind of, at least. Johansson stars alongside Channing Tatum in Greg Berlanti’s new comedy about a team faking the moon landing, in case the real mission goes awry. 

Take a look at the trailer.

It’s all in good fun, but there is a disturbing amount of theories about the moon landing being fake, so the film’s premise is certainly a juicy one. 

Here’s the official synopsis: Starring Scarlett Johansson and Channing Tatum, FLY ME TO THE MOON is a sharp, stylish comedy-drama set against the high-stakes backdrop of NASA’s historic Apollo 11 moon landing. Brought in to fix NASA’s public image, sparks fly in all directions as marketing maven Kelly Jones (Johansson) wreaks havoc on launch director Cole Davis’s (Tatum) already difficult task. When the White House deems the mission too important to fail, Jones is directed to stage a fake moon landing as back-up and the countdown truly begins…

Nick Dillenburg, Anna Garcia, Jim Rash, Noah Robbins, Colin Woodell, Christian Zuber, Donald Elise Watkins, Ray Romano and Woody Harrelson also star in the film while Rose Gilroy is in charge of the script. 

Fly Me To The Moon has gone through several changes before finally making it to the big screen this year. Jason Bateman was attached as a director at one point, but exited the project due to creative differences. Tatum’s character was supposed to be played by Chris Evans but Bateman’s exit led to delays in the shoot and by then, Evans was busy with Netflix’s Pain Hustlers

Fly Me To The Moon is heading into UK cinemas 12 July.
