Having been announced as the Mayor of London’s Gala for the 63rd BFI London Film Festival earlier today, Entertainment One UK has now released the first trailer for director Tom Harper‘s heart-racing adventure story, THE AERONAUTS.
Written by Jack Thorne and starring Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones, alongside Himesh Patel, Anne Reid, Tom Courtenay, Tim McInnerny, and Phoebe Fox, THE AERONAUTS will be released in cinemas across the UK and Ireland, and in IMAX venues, on Wednesday 6th November 2019.
Set in 1862 and inspired by true events, The Aeronauts follows wealthy young widow Amelia Wren (Jones) and headstrong scientist James Glaisher (Redmayne), as they mount a balloon expedition to fly higher than anyone in history. This is a journey to the very edge of existence, where the air is thin and the chances of survival are slim. As their perilous ascent reveals their true selves, this unlikely pair discover things about each other – and themselves – that helps each of them find their place in the world they have left behind.
