Midway Movie Trailer

"The Japanese are planning something bigger." "So what's the target?" Lionsgate has debuted a new full-length official trailer for Roland Emmerich's big action movie Midway, about the iconic Battle of Midway during World War II - known as "The Battle That Turned The War". The battle took place across three days in June of 1942, only six months after Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor. The United States Navy defeated an attacking fleet of the Imperial Japanese Navy near Midway Atoll, inflicting devastating damage on the main Japanese fleet. Military historian John Keegan called it "the most stunning and decisive blow in the history of naval warfare". This ensemble war action movie stars Woody Harrelson, Jake Weber, Luke Evans, Mandy Moore, Patrick Wilson, Brennan Brown, Ed Skrein, Aaron Eckhart, Alexander Ludwig, Nick Jonas, Tadanobu Asano, Dennis Quaid, Darren Criss, and Keean Johnson. Looks like it has tons of heavy action, as expected, with tons of characters to follow as they head into the battle of all battles.

Here's the full-length official trailer (+ poster) for Roland Emmerich's Midway, from Lionsgate's YouTube:

One of the good side of history is that it has given a lot of excuses for film industry to do whatever it wants ...

WWII never ends in Hollywood.

Not only that, history has never passed and never will pass there. And we're on that unrepairable and always driving trainwreck forever ...

Impressive cast and actually looks far better than Pearl Harbour, which at first put me off Midway.

This film is a case where fantastic special effects create what was once real. Care seems to have been taken to get it right sticking to actual history and maybe for the first time in film history truly depict the fantastic action.

Nick Jonas? Mandy Moore? Really? Wasn't there already a movie of this same title decades ago? This one really looks like schlock and the photography is just outright ugly! I just cannot wrap my head around people making movies with this kind of dull, flat and ugly photography and releasing them. Can't they tell it's aesthetically bad? Do they even care these days? Do audiences?

videogamish cinematography. It helps to blend in the ton of CGI

Wonder if the script language will include accurateness like they try with CGI? In today's PC world, derogatory names for the Japanese and posters will probably be replaced 21st C style. Of course, being that Hollywood is owned by China, maybe they'll include the harshness that the 1930-40's Japanese deserve.
