The Aeronaunts Trailer

Amazon Unveils First “The Aeronauts” Trailer

Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne are soaring to new heights in the just-released first trailer for their new film, Amazon's The Aeronauts.

Set in 1862, The Aeronauts follows a wealthy widow Amelia Wren (Jones) and headstrong meteorologist (Redmayne) as they join forces to fly higher than anyone ever has. The journey will take them above the clouds to the edge of the then-known world where the chances of survival match that of the air: thin.

There is a lot to get excited about here as the trailer boasts a unique color pallet and stellar visuals. You also can't forget the success of Jones and Redmayne's previous collaboration, 2014's The Theory of Everything. That film won Redmayne an Oscar and was both a critical and financial success. We'll have to wait and see if the pair can recreate the magic.

Written by Jack Thorne and directed by Tom Harper, The Aeronauts will have its world premiere at the 41st Toronto International Film Festival before hitting limited theaters on December 6 Amazon on December 20.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
