Scarlett Johansson's Fly Me to the Moon has received positive early reviews.

The actress earned over $15 million per Marvel film.

Fly Me to the Moon will be released in theatres on July 12.

The character Black Widow may have been actress Scarlett Johansson’s ticket to success, but she doesn’t necessarily need the Marvel Studios stamp to prove her worth. Aside from the superhero franchise, Johansson has a plethora of blockbuster movies to her name including Jojo Rabbit and Asteroid City.

Her latest venture is Fly Me to the Moon with Channing Tatum as her co-star. This is the first time the duo is coming together for a movie, and that too with such a poignant theme. Directed by Greg Berlanti, the story dives into the history of Apollo 11’s Moon landing with a romantic twist.

Written by Bill Kirstein and Keenan Flynn, Fly Me to the Moon is a romantic comedy-drama flick that outlines a love story between a NASA executive and a marketing executive. Set against the backdrop of the Apollo 11 Moon landing, the romance of the story is closely woven with the historical aspects of the narrative.

Early reviews for the movie are nothing but praise and exceptional compliments for the cast and crew of Fly Me to the Moon. Especially the chemistry between Scarlett Johansson and Channing Tatum has taken fans by surprise, as nobody expected the two actors to work together so well. The delightful whimsy of the story has also received massive praise from the viewers who caught an early screening of the film.

Another aspect that seemingly keeps the audience entertained and intrigued is the fast-paced drama and suspense of the story. It’s not just a straightforward romance where everything is rainbows and roses. However, some realistic hurdles and challenges are posed in the storyline that make the movie all the more interesting.
