Reach for the Stars in First Trailer for The Aeronauts

This morning brings the first trailer for Amazon Studios’ The Aeronauts, promising a high-flying adventure with Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne. 

I can’t say The Aeronauts was high on my list of films to look out for, but this morning’s first trailer, which is packed with equal amounts of tension, wonder, and charm from the cast:

I love both of the leads, and digging the overall vibe of this film. Color me intrigued!

In 1862, daredevil balloon pilot Amelia Wren (Felicity Jones) teams up with pioneering meteorologist James Glaisher (Eddie Redmayne) to advance human knowledge of the weather and fly higher than anyone in history. While breaking records and advancing scientific discovery, their voyage to the very edge of existence helps the unlikely pair find their place in the world they have left far below them. But they face physical and emotional challenges in the thin air, as the ascent becomes a fight for survival.

The Aeronauts will release in limited theaters on December 6th, before hitting Amazon Prime on December 20, 2019.
