The Aeronauts Trailer

"I believe there are answers in the sky. Out there is where I have found greatest happiness." Amazon + Studiocanal have debuted the first official trailer for the epic adventure movie The Aeronauts, the latest from acclaimed British director Tom Harper of Wild Rose most recently. This thrilling movie is based on a true story, about one of the first hot air balloons to fly around the planet. Set in in 1862, pilot Amelia Wren, played by Felicity Jones, and scientist James Glaisher, played by Eddie Redmayne, find themselves in an epic fight for survival while attempting to make discoveries in a hot air balloon flying around the world. Also featuring Himesh Patel, Anne Reid, Tim McInnerny, Phoebe Fox, Tom Courtenay, Rebecca Front, Vincent Perez, and Robert Glenister. This looks really cool, I must say. They're certainly playing up the grand adventure aspects of this - it reminds me a bit of Life of Pi in terms of the visuals. Take a look.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Tom Harper's The Aeronauts, direct from YouTube:

As their perilous ascent reveals their true selves, this unlikely pair discover things about each other - and themselves - that helps each of them find their place in the world they have left behind. The Aeronauts is directed by British filmmaker Tom Harper, of the films The Scouting Book for Boys, War Book, The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death, and Wild Rose previously, as well as TV work. previously. The screenplay is written by Jack Thorne (War Book, Wonder), from a story by Tom Harper and Jack Thorne. This will first premiere at the Toronto Film Festival this fall. Amazon Studios will then release Harper's The Aeronauts in theaters starting December 6th later this fall. First impression? Interested?

Finally, an offering somewhat different. Has the feel of the original 'Journey to the Center of the Earth.' Good old fashion popcorn movie.

Looking good, of course. Makes me wish my own fantasy about it ...

What is the Amazon version of Netflux? (the term I created for theater quality movies coming out on Netflix only) This looks pretty darn enjoyable.

Sure, why not? I'll catch it when it hits cable. I've always like Ms. Jones because, well, because she's always terrific in whatever she does and is wonderful to watch work her characterizations. I've no problem with Redmayne either and think he won a well deserved Oscar for his work in that film I can't remember the name of he and the film were pretty p.s. The Theory of Everything. I was going nuts not remembering the title to that well done film so I hit IMDB. Whew...I'm feeling better

I was hoping for a bit of "steampunk" but got "airpunk" instead! Never was aware of this event in history so I don't know how much liberation they'll take with the "Inspired by a true adventure", but I like the talent involved and it looks like and adventure I wouldn't mind experiencing.
