This is the best day for fans of Zack Snyder’s Mexico. Netflix confirmed that the director will visit Mexico City to present Rebel Moon, his new film produced on the platform, as an exclusive title for the company. The famous director confirmed that he will do an extensive press tour in Latin America, starting with CCXP in Brazil, before returning to our country.
When will Zack Snyder visit Mexico?
So far, Netflix has only confirmed that his visit will take place on December 4. The details about the events that will take place with Zack Snyder—if there will be a fan screening or if he will be on any carpet for the premiere of Rebel Moon—have not been disclosed. Stay tuned for details about your visit; we are up to date now. It is worth noting that the film has Alfonso Herrera, a Mexican actor, in its cast.
As you know, Rebel Moon is a space epic that Snyder created and wrote to build his own franchise. The movie is the story of Korra (Sofia Boutella), the inhabitant of a lunar colony under threat from Basilarius (Ed Skrein), the military regent of a galactic empire. To save his home from conquest, he must recruit the strongest space warriors to fight alongside him.
The film is Snyder’s second attempt at creating a Netflix franchise. The director, who was previously mistreated by Warner Bros., found on the platform a more favorable partner to continue his career. It is believed that the company was so impressed with their work that they agreed to split the original story into two episodes and are already developing several other projects derived from it.
To this, we must add that it is confirmed that Snyder originally thought of the story as part of the Star Wars franchise when Lucasfilm was looking for options to create a sequel trilogy. This story did not convince them, but then Snyder decided that this was a project he wanted to continue in the future. All this has been done for Rebel Moon, one of the most anticipated films of 2023.
The project is also one of the strongest titles for Netflix towards the end of the year. Although the platform usually saves its films for the awards season in December, Snyder’s film will take the traditional place of the big action installment that they prepare for the festival every year. It adds that the sequel to Pollitos en Fuga, 97%, will also air in the last month of 2023.
So keep the following dates in mind if you share the anger with Snyder: on December 4, the director will visit CDMX, and Rebel Moon will arrive on Netflix starting December 22. The second part will take time, as it is scheduled to be released until mid-April. Stay tuned for more details on opportunities to watch the film and welcome the famous filmmaker.
