First Poster For Roland Emmerich's WWII Film MIDWAY - "One Battle Turned The Tide of War"
It’s been a while since we’ve had any kind of update on director Roland Emmerich (Independence Day)’s World War II film Midway. But today we have a poster to share with you, which comes with the tagline, "One Battle Turned The Tide of War".
The film “is an epic telling of the Battle of Midway, a turning point in the Pacific theater of World War II. The story follows the real soldiers and aviators who pulled off the unbelievable to turn the tide of the war in June 1942.”
The cast for the movie includes Patrick Wilson (The Conjuring) as Admiral Edwin Layton, "the rear admiral in the U.S. Navy who was a key intelligence officer during WWII." Woody Harrelson is playing Admiral Chester Nimitz, "one of the leaders who lead the American naval fleet to victory in a foray that involved aircraft carriers, destroyers and cruisers." Luke Evans will play Commander Wade McClusky, "who would go on to win a Naval Cross for his role in Midway."
The film also stars Mandy Moore (This Is Us) and Darren Criss (The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story), Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight), Nick Jonas (Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle), Dennis Quaid (The Day After Tomorrow), Keean Johnson (Alita: Battle Angel) and Tadanobu Asano (Thor, 47 Ronin).
This is going to be a different kind of film for Emmerich, he’s made a couple films that I’ve enjoyed like Independence Day and Stargate, but for the most part, his films are mediocre. Who knows, though, maybe he’ll do something great with this one. At least he has a great cast to work with!
Midway will hit theaters on November 8th.
