Lionsgate has released the teaser trailer for Midway.
Director Roland Emmerich’s upcoming World War II movie centers on the 1942 Battle of Midway, which turned the tide for America in the Pacific Theater but also chronicles the dramatic six months that led up to it following Japan’s infamous attack on Pearl Harbor. Emmerich says there’s still relevance to the story, 77 years later. “It shows an America that’s not the superpower, a country that just came out of a big recession and tried to stay out of a war but got sucked into it. It was a simpler time, but it also was a time where you had to put your life in danger for ideals.”
The film stars Ed Skrein, Patrick Wilson, Luke Evans, Aaron Eckhart, Nick Jonas, Etsushi Toyokawa, Tadanobu Asano, Luke Kleintank, Jun Kunimura, Darren Criss, Keean Johnson, Alexander Ludwig, with Mandy Moore, Dennis Quaid and Woody Harrelson.
Midway will be in theaters November 8, 2019.
