From the director of Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow and 2012, comes Midway, a new World War II action drama. Roland Emmerich is tackling the great battle of the Pacific between U.S. and Japanese Naval forces, which marked a turning point for the war for both sides.
Judging by the trailer of the film, it is pretty obvious that Emmerich has the action sequences down to a pat. In fact, it even looks like it has got some elements from Michael Bay’s Pearl Harbor thrown in for good measure.
The Battle of Midway was previously told in a 60s film starring Charlton Heston but this time around, Emmerich has roped in a pretty impressive cast to help him tell his vision of the story. Midway stars Ed Skrein, Patrick Wilson, Luke Evans, Aaron Eckhart, Nick Jonas, Mandy Moore, Dennis Quaid and Woody Harrelson.
Check out Midway when it flies into cinemas this November.
