The Aeronauts ~ Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones Trailer

AeronautsIt's about time that Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones have joined forces once again. This time to bring us a tale about a semi-true life story of English meteorologist, aeronaut, and astronomer, James Glaisher. As you recall, both of them told the story of astrophysicist Stephen and Jane Hawking in "The Theory of Everything." As they have both gone off and became stars in both the Sci-Fi or Fantasy genres. Jones in "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" as rebel Jyn Erso. Redmayne as the bumbling Newt  in "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" and then again in "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald." 

Glaisher was known as both a pioneering balloonist and a founding member of the Royal Meteorological Society. On September 5th, 1862, he broke the world record for altitude at 8,800 meters. He did pass out around that point. Glaisher's co-pilot Henry Tracey Coxwell is not in the film but is replaced by Felicity Jone's character Amelia Wren (like the bird... get it).

What I am hoping for is an epic adventure fictionalized, if necessary, that takes Redmayne and Jones to breathtaking and vertigo-inducing heights.

"The Aeronauts" is directed by Tom Harper ("The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death") based on a story by Tom Harper and Jack Thorne with a written by credit. Music is composed of Steven Price, whose credits include "Gravity," "Baby Driver," and "Fury." The film opens on December 6th, 2019.
