Following its highly-publicised global promotions and world tours, Rebel Moon: Part One - A Child of Fire received a limited US theatrical release on December 15. The film centres on a band of intrepid rebels who unite across the galaxy to challenge the oppressive rulers of the vast Motherworld empire. In a universe where hope seems extinguished, their unwavering resolve ignites a desperate struggle for liberation.

Rebel Moon is one of the much-awaited films of the year. Zack Snyder's each and every interview made the audience's eagerness stronger. ComplexCon was invaded by Rebel Moon on November 19. Attendees became the stars, crafting their own personalised trailers with cutting-edge green screen technology. The entire presentation, a dazzling blend of towering holographic displays and neon-lit corridors, transported fans to the heart of the film's rebellion. This immersive experience left everyone eager for Rebel Moon's release.

What did director Zack Snyder reveal?

Last month in a special interview with Entertainment Weekly, Zack Snyder disclosed a lot of things about his dreams, his admirations, his immense love for Star Wars, how in DC films, superheroes working together as a team inspired him, and why Sofia Boutella was his first and obvious choice for the role of Kora.

How Star Wars inspired Zack Snyder?

Zack Snyder shared that 1977’s Star Wars is like a seminal film for him. It literally inspired him to make movies. The transportation to other galaxies motivated him to make stop action animation films with his special collections of Star Wars figures in the fall of 1977. “I would say from then I was pretty much interested in making my own sci-fi films”, Snyder said.
