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.
