Explosive trailer for Roland Emmerich’s real-life World War II story flies in
Following the attacks on Pearl Harbour, the U.S. was vulnerable, and the Imperial Japanese Navy found a new target in the form of the Pacific Theater. The trailer introduces us to a moustachioed Nick Jonas as a young soldier and Pearl Harbour survivor who is keen to continue fighting and is taken under the wing of Ed Skrein’s fighter pilot as they prepare for the battle of Midway. Facing impossible odds, the undermanned American fleet set out to defend the West Coast. From aerial dogfights to kamikaze crash landings, Roland Emmerich brings all the bombastic action and explosive set pieces you’d expect from the director of Independence Day and The Day After Tomorrow with a film that's set to plunge audiences in the middle of the conflict. There’s also a look at the star-studded cast that includes Luke Evans, Patrick Wilson, Woody Harrelson, and Aaron Eckhart who star as real-life lieutenants and admirals as director Roland Emmerich provides an action-packed account of the Battle of Midway from the perspective of the soldiers and leaders who used their instincts, fortitude, and courage to overcome the odds.
